“the Times of the nineteenth of December had published the official forecasts of the output of various classes of consumption goods in the fourth quarter of 1983, which was also the sixth quarter of the Ninth Three-Year Plan.

Winston’s job was to rectify the original figures by making them agree with the later ones.”…George Orwell, “1984″
