Unlike the citizens of "1984," Americans and Brits have no excuse at present for continuing to allow Bush and Blair to perpetuate their jointly engineered deception of the public. We have access to history as it has actually unfolded and thus We KNOW BETTER. Why are these creeps still in office?
As the saying goes, "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me."
Hey Tony - Is Your Ministry of Truth Modeled after the One in '1984'?
EXCERPT from a Theme analysis of "1984"
“History” is another important theme in 1984. In many ways, Orwell’s novel reads like a history book. 1984warns readers that the Oceania universe will be the future, if people fail to learn the lessons revealed by major historical events and figures such as WWI, WWII, Hitler, Stalin, and Mussolini (to cite examples from Western and Eastern Europe). The Party understood the power of history. A citizenry educated to understand history would not allow the Party to survive. Thus, the Party eliminated nearly everyone who remembered the past before Big Brother, created a new, post-Big Brother history, then manipulated history through the Ministry of Truth so much that it was impossible to ever know what was happening or what had really happened." - Theme analysis of '1984' by George Orwell
