Interesting Times

Times Article from Minitrue:
Crimethinkers opposed the Party, a doubleplus ungood act.  Read and distributed Oldspeak texts.  Thought freedom was happiness.  Taught selfthink.   Followed ownlife.

An extended stay at Miniluv restored their loyalty.  A Party member heard them say, “War is peace.  Freedom is slavery.  Ignorance is strength.”*

Original Oldspeak article sent to memory hole:
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.**
