“WAR IS PEACE
FREEDOM IS SLAVERY
IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH”
These words are the slogan of the Party, the all-powerful political group that rules the world of 1984. They may seem strange, confusing, or simply wrong, but in George Orwell’s envisioned future, a place where critical thought is forbidden, morality is hopelessly distorted, and all remnants of objective truth have been squelched, these words are the law of the land.
With 1984, Orwell offers a stern warning to his readers. Human glory is not guaranteed, and if the people do not take every step to preserve their individual freedoms, catastrophe will result.
