owe is an obscure joke word used to satirize Orwellian and totalitarian concepts and accusations. It was coined by nano in 2021.[1] Its sitelen pona glyph (owe) is derived from the glyph for lukin with emitters above, representing the global surveillance of the fictional Oceanian government in Nineteen Eighty-Four.
