Winston woke up from a dream where his family sacrificed themselves to save him. He realized that the idea of a family where the members loved each other was no longer possible. Then, he dreamed of the dark-haired woman he saw at the Two Minutes Hate. Upon waking, he reminisced about his childhood, the only time he remembered where there was no war. Today, Oceania was at war with Eurasia, and had supposedly always been, but Winston knew that four years ago the enemy had changed to Eurasia from Eastasia. He then thought about the idea of Doublethink - accepting contradictory ideas as true.
