“Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.” – George Orwell, 1984

What could you do with 8 million dollars? Buy a new car? Make some home improvements? Pick up that cool watch you’ve had your eye on for some time? All of the above?

“The Party,” the government, sure knows what to do with it. They are altering history.

Eight million dollars is real money. Hell, the US purchased the entire land mass that is now the state of Alaska for less than that. Granted, that was a few years ago, but still.
