In 1984, the setting is Oceania at a time where the government has taken over and nobody has any freedom.
WAR IS PEACE IGNORANCE IS STREGNTH AND FREEDOM IS SLAVERY
This is one of the main quotes throughout the novel that I remember the most. Each line could mean different things by people looking at them differently.
“Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past.”
This quote is basically talking about how big brother controls everything. Big Brother can do whatever he wants in the past to affect the future.
