"Thought crime" comes from the idea that even a person's thoughts can be made illegal. The idea was originated in George Orwell's novel 1984, where Thought Police utilize a variety of psychological and surveillance techniques to discover people who are capable of even contemplating a challenge to authority.

Some apologists consider the act of merely thinking of breaking a commandment to be an actual sin against that commandment. Hatred, for example, is considered a sin against thou shall not kill.
