In a way they make sense. To get peace there will be war, I don't agree with the other two statements though. I'm not sure who will benefit from these. If you wanted to control an entire country you might tell these to the people.
Yeah, I suppose in the long run war could lead to peace
Sometimes people are sheep and follow who designated themselves as the shepherd.
I think that these statements make a little sense.
They dont really make sense. The only one that I could see being true is that war sometimes leads to peace but even that's a long stretch. The only people who could benifit are the ones that are trying to control others for example the government.
I agree, these are definitely something a controlling person would tell others.
I can see how War becoming peace makes sense, but it depends on who benefits from that the most in the end.
I used the government as well.
Yeah, wars eventually have to end which is peace. But peace doesn’t tend to last if it came from war.
The paradox meaning for these statements are meant as a kind of simplistic explanation where people don’t question whether or not they are true. They don’t make sense when you understand the depths of each kind of power the words hold in the world. The government that enforces these words benefit the most because it makes controlling people easier.
I like the way you stated your view.
I completely agree.
I like the way you worded this.
I think that they do make sense because it depends on how you view each of those individual items.
Well written, Aimee.
From a straight forward point of view, these slogans don't make any sense at all, but based on the story they sort of do. The people in control use these statements to justify to the people what's going on, and assure them that what they're doing is right.
These statements do not make any sense. They are complete opposites. Dictators could use these slogans as propaganda to encourage war, ignorance, and slavery.
That is one way to look at it
I agree that they don’t make sense.
I think I depends on how you view the statements. Some people may agree and think they make sense and others may not. It all depends on ones perspective.
In a way they make sense, but it don’t agree with them. People that would benefit would be a government trying to control people or someone who is trying to take over.
The first one makes the most sense, but even then it's not much.
It depends. They don’t really make sense but I’m a way they do
They do but don’t
These slogans don’t make sense at all. They’re all the complete opposite of what really happens. More so war usually causes mayhem, slavery is not freedom in any means, and strength has no ignorance to it. I don’t think that anyone benefits from these particular slogans.
In a way it’s like an oxymoron but it contradicts itself. It doesn’t make much sense. People that might use this would be those who are trying to be controlling.
Even the people who are controlling don’t really benefit from them though. They all cause more problems than they do to fix them.
War can lead to peace but the other two statements do not make sense. The people that would benefit from these slogans are the people trying to control the population.
I think war can lead to peace but most of these don’t make sense unless you look at them individually.
Yeah some of them make sense becomes wood could lead to a piece some times.
These statements completely contradict themselves and so they don’t make much sense, but that’s probably the point. The society in which they are used within the book, is probably full of lazy people who don’t have the time to thoroughly think through the meaning of this slogan. They probably think that the meaning is so complex that it would take too long to understands and so they blindly follow the standards and values set by their society.
In all reality these words make no sense but in the book 1984 they make perfect sense. These slogans would maybe benefit a person in a high government position who is trying to take power.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
