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.**
*Quoted from George Orwell’s 1984.
**Quoted from the US Declaration of Independence
