Language, Argument, Information, History, Past, Future under control

If you control the Language, you control the Argument.
If you control the Argument, you control Information.
If you control Information, you control History.
If you control History, you control the Past.
He who controls the Past controls the Future.
(Big Brother, 1984 / George Orwell)
