As it is said, history is written by the victors.

I think I just noted that is not always the case? But I think your comment is mostly correct.

That saying is just a short cut way of communicating that all too often the history someone learns does not reflect what really happened but the reality that those in power want you to believe. Just like news (next years history) is often spun in ways to further the agenda, profit or protect those who are in currently in power.

The book 1984 was intended to be a warning, not an instruction manual for those currently in power.

The book makes me think of what life must be like in North Korea.
