Oceanic society rests ultimately on the belief that Big Brother is omnipotent and that the Party is infallible. Only in his own consciousness, which in any case must soon be annihilated. The Party claimed, 1984 and all that book example, that today 40 per cent of adult proles were literate: before the Revolution, it was said, the number had only been 15 per cent. And since the Party is in full control of all records and in equally full control of the minds of its members, it follows that the past is whatever the Party chooses to make it. If the official account was accurate, Smith's strengthening memories and the story of his family's dissolution suggest that the atomic bombings occurred first, followed by civil war featuring "confused street fighting in London itself" and the societal postwar reorganisation, which the Party retrospectively calls "the Revolution".

No emotion was pure, because everything was mixed up with fear and hatred. Applied to an opponent, it means the habit of impudently claiming that black is white, in contradiction of the plain facts. The largest section of the Records Department, far larger than the one on which Winston worked, consisted simply of persons whose duty it was to track down and collect all copies of books, newspapers, and other documents which had been superseded and were due for destruction. Or that the force of gravity works? Winston's greatest fear is rats.

Whatever was true now was true from everlasting to everlasting. A great deal of the time you were expected to make them up out of your head. The public started drawing comparisons between the Inner Party's regime and Trump's presidency when his adviser used the phrase "alternative facts" in an interview. Even those things Winston thought would save him — his love for Julia and his hate for Big Brother — could be turned against him and completely flipped on its head. If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face—forever. To make sure that all written records agree with the orthodoxy of the moment is merely a mechanical act.
