The Party and Airplanes

1984-E4U05K

It was not true, as was claimed by the Party history books, that the Party had invented airplanes.

If Winston knows that the Party's propaganda is made of blatant lies, why does he not question the government?

Select ALL that apply.

A

Citizens can prove nothing because there is no concrete evidence.

B

There was never any evidence left over to prove anything different.

C

Airplanes were not invented until after the Party was in charge.

D

Winston is, at best, a meek man who does not like to call attention to himself. He is fearful of the repercussions if the Party catches him going against their established word.

E

Winston likes to study history but doesn't consider himself knowledgeable enough to formally accuse the party.
