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?
"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."
"It was not true, for example, as was claimed in the Party history books, that the Party had invented the airplane."
"…even the things that one accepted without question, was pure fantasy… everything existed for their benefit…"
"…the past not only changed, but changed continuously… the immediate advantages of falsifying the past were obvious..."
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.
