Oceania, Eurasia and Eastasia war
I have to prepare an essay on this extract of 1984's chapter III:"Since about that time, war had been literally continuous, though strictly speaking it had not always been the same war. For several months during his childhood there had been confused street fighting in London itself, some of which he remembered vividly. But to trace out the history of the whole period, to say who was fighting whom at any given moment, would have been utterly impossible, since no written record, and no spoken word, ever made mention of any other alignment than the existing one. ..."
I already have some ideas but I don't manage to create a thesis statement
nor an outline
There is things to say about this extract but I can't divide into into different parts.
What I found was that the Party manipulates the past, the present and the future as it wants. Winston remembers that Oceania has always been in a constant state of war, whereas the Party wants people to think the other way around. There is a difference between what is true and what the Party has made true.
That is basically the ideas I found.
If you have some other ideas, ideas of thesis or outline, help me pls.
(sorry for my English, I'm French)
