Orwell, Part One and Two

| No Comments

Winston is a copy editor. His job is editing history. Online materials can be easily edited. As more and more documents are published online, history could be changed.

They're constantly altering every piece of recorded history. Currently, books are routinely altered and updated, but obviously not to the extent as the world of Orwell's 1984. It's the same with telescreens. They exist but are not used as extensively.

The Party owns the media, which is not unlike the publications that lean towards a political party in preference. Double speak reminds me of politically correct speech. One department spent all its time faking photographers. I wonder if they used Adobe Photoshop.
