"War is Peace"
Warfare in 1984
"The primary aim of modern warfare (in accordance with the principles of doublethink, this aim is simultaneously recognized and not recognized by the directing brains of the inner party) is to use up the products of the machine without raising the general standard of living" - Goldstein
"Secondly, there is no longer, in a material sense, anything to fight about. With the establishment of self-contained economies, in which production and consumption are geared to one another, the scramble for markets which was A main cause of previous wars has come to an end, while the competition for raw materials is no longer a matter of life and death" - Goldstein
