This Space for Rent

1984, or 2004?

The consequences of being at war, and therefore in danger, makes the handing-over of power to a small caste seem the natural, unavoidable condition of survivalů

It does not matter whether the war is actually happening, and, since no decisive victory is possible, it does not matter whether the war is going well or badly. All that is needed is that a state of war should exist.

--George Orwell
