William Sargant, Orwell and Rewriting the History of World War II

This article begins with a discussion about the revisionist rewriting of World War II, specifically the role of capitalists in supporting Hitler. But then it shifts gears and analyzes the reasons why people don’t read about the true history of World War II. The author leads us through a journey of mind control that includes the work of Sargant and Orwell. She closes by arguing that the control of people’s collective memories is the reason why there is not more opposition to the current  rewriting of history.
