Which of the following quotes about the Party's governing style is indicative of a Totalitarian government, one who controls all aspects of the citizens and the community in which they live?

A

"If the Party could ever thrust its hand into the past and say of this or that event, it never happened-that, surely, was more terrifying than mere torture and death."

B

"It was not true, for example, as was claimed in the Party history books, that the Party had invented the airplane."

C

"…even the things that one accepted without question, was pure fantasy… everything existed for their benefit…"

D

"…the past not only changed, but changed continuously… the immediate advantages of falsifying the past were obvious..."

E

All of the choices provide evidence of the Party being a totalitarian form in the sense that they take total control over past, present, and future events.
