Winston calls it being conscious of complete truthfulness while telling carefully constructed lie. onsciously to induce unconsciousness. Oceania: The product of Orwell’s experience. Orwell’s setting in 1984 is inspired by the way he foresaw the Cold War – a phrase he coined in 1945 – playing out. He wrote it just a few years after watching Roosevelt, Churchill and Stalin carve up the world at the Tehran and Yalta conferences.
