Thought crime refers to a kind of crime which punishes a person's opinions. They are considered unconstitutional in the United States because they would openly violate the First Amendment.

This name was popularized by George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four novel.

Thought crimes were commonly adopted in the Soviet Union and many other Communist countries.

Modern Day Thought Control

Today, European Liberals are sometimes tempted with the introduction of laws punishing the expression of opinions, especially involving criticism of Homosexuality. American liberals likewise have to covertly control thought because the 1st amendment of the constitution prohibits restrictions on free speech. To do this they exercise political correctness, often indoctrinating students in public schools to feel bad about voicing any negative feelings against homosexuals, conservative values, etc. Since prosecution is illegal, the students are taught instead to shun the dissenter as punishment for his "thought crime".
