** One of the 3 super states in the book is the superstate of Eurasia, which practices the ideology of "Neo-Bolshevism" which as per the themes of the book, is a totalitarian ideology disguising itself as a populist one. [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Bolshevism As of now, there is an ACTUAL movement in Russia called National Bolshevism]] which not only sounds similar, but seeks to create a Eurasian super state led by Russia while maintaining a pseudo Communist government. They've been disowned by Marxists and Nationalists alike.

* FunnyMoments: There is actually one in the film. During the Two Minute Hate, Julia goes so berserk with rage, throwing her shoe at th screen, O'Brien stares at her in incredulity. Knowing what we learn later in the story, it's downright hilarious.
