„War, it will be seen, is now a purely internal affair.“
„The war is waged by each ruling group against its own subjects (people), and the object of the war is not to make or prevent conquests of territory, but to keep the structure of society intact.“
„A peace that was truly permanent would be the same as a permanent war.
This – although the vast majority of Party members understand it only in a shallower sense – is the inner meaning of the Party slogan: WAR IS PEACE.“
After many years I skim-read the book once again and came across the phrase „war is waged against it’s own people“ (here described as „subjects“) which is happening right now all over the world – due to heavy brainwashing.
Also you can find the terms „war is peace“ and „freedom is slavery“ (you also can read them vice-versa).
