British novelist essayist George Orwell in his book 1984 which is about a one party state. The party slogans are “WAR IS PEACE”, ‘FREEDOM IS SLAVERY’ and “IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH.” The Ministry of Truth responsible control of the for propaganda, culture and entertainment. As well as revision the historical record. Because he “Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past.” The party controls truth, language, history, on what is spoken and attempts to control even ones thoughts.
Contrast to today with political correctness, being woke, social media platforms control of through in banning conservative voices, and people losing their jobs for expressing their opinion. Have we reached the “times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.”
