"War is Peace"

Warfare in 1984

My thoughts on warfare in 1984 is that they want to keep there society the way it is without change because this way they have total control over the proles while there at A constant war which in return keeps there minds on the fighting more so than A rebellion against the party and as well as keeping them in poverty.


"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
