It’s Hate Week. In the midst of “celebrating”, the war switches from Eurasia to Eastaisa with the explanation that it was Goldstein sabotage. Five year’s worth of corrections must be made by Winston’s department, but when the work is done, no evidence remains and the war is transferred. No questions asked.
Have you ever told your kids the plan for the day and then switched it, pretending nothing’s changed?
Mom: Children, we’re going to run some errands and end the day by going out for pizza.
Children: Yea! We’re going out for pizza. We’re going out for pizza.
Mom: Children, you are absolutely correct. We’re going to run some errands and end the day by going out for fried chicken.
Children: crickets. What?! Mom, you said we’re going out for pizza! I heard you! She said, “pizza,” didn’t she?! You heard her. Mom said pizza and now she’s switching it to chicken. Mom, you can’t switch it. You promised!
Oceania doesn’t even blink.
