It is then that he comes to his conclusion. "Sanity is not statistical" (book 1 Chapter 9) *Things are not objectively true or false.*Things are not true or false just because everyone believes them, or everyone does not.*If one person believes that something is false but millions of people believe it is true, that does not make that person crazy. In this part O'Brian is repeating to Winston one of the Party's slogans in the Ministry of Love. In reference to the nature of the past. "Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past." * If the past was idyllic; people will act to recreate it*if the past was nightmarish;people will act to prevent such things from reoccurring.* In this society, no one has any idea of the true past. Thus no substantial rebellion.* The more ignorant will believe the Party's version of the past "You must love Big Brother. It is not enough to obey him; you must love him." O'Brian tells this to Winston as he begins the final stage of Winston's rehab into submission of the Party. *The belief to some is that everyone obeys Big Brother. *The belief to others is that everyone disobeys Big Brother *The "true" truth is that only brainwashed people can love Big Brother. 4. double click to change this title text! 1. 2. 3.
