Thematic Statement

Manipulation through warfare is ultimately needed to keep classism, and mainly, power. In the book the party uses warfare to control and regulate supplies and the people.


"That was before the war, of course"

"Which war was that?" said Winston

"Its all wars," Said the old man vaguely. (1.8.35-37)

Warfare is so it becomes hard to recognize who they're at war with. This is the manipulation of warfare of the party.
