To the editor:

Here are quotes from 1984 and Animal Farm novelist George Orwell (1903-1950):

“Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the party is always right.”

“The most effective way to destroy people is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history.”

“Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past.”

“History has to move in a certain direction, even if it has to be pushed that way by neurotics.”

“History stopped in 1936 (and everything else is propaganda).”

“The further a society drifts from truth, the more it will hate those who speak of it.”
