“Who controls the past, controls the future” was the slogan of the party. George Orwell alerts us with this one-liner quote about the idea of altering the past. The party wants to have full control over our minds and starts by controlling the past. The party’s idea of controlling is to completely erase any events from the past. In doing this, it makes sure no one can think or read about what may have happened in the past and compare it to what is happening in their time. By Erasing the past, no one is able to know anything different from what they have already been taught how to live. Orwell continues to say ” who controls the present controls the past.” The party employs people to alter all the newspapers before they are seen by anyone else. They change the dates and what it says and blank out everything that doesn’t follow the way of life in the present. They cut the language down to the basics, giving the people no words to describe any sort of feelings. The party is obsessed with controlling every part of the people’s life such as their thoughts and actions. By controlling the present the party is able to make them believe anything they say such as what they portray the past to be. The party is able to push the community into believing whatever the party believes just by the use of manipulation of their minds.
