Cheyanne's Campsite ...Where The Money Meets The Rubber of The Spirited Road in America Today !!: The New Yorker Responds To The 1984 World Trump is ushering in. Hopefully more publications follow.----Thinking more about “1984” and how the Ministry of Truth was tasked with distorting the past, changing history books, to further the goals of the Party. Keeping in mind that Orwell published the book in 1947 he saw the power of the lie in Nazi Germany. Orwell describes how the population is manipulated through “doublethink.” By subjecting them to constant propaganda they lived in fear. The Party, like with Trump, managed to get many people to believe anything no matter how illogical.
