However, after that grace period, a project needs to move to a more sustainable, long-term arrangement. Often, the project leaders will make sure that things run smoothly, so it is paramount that the right project leaders are chosen. Faculty and staff appointments, who often have other obligations, are expected to work on growing and developing the project, publishing about it, presenting it at various meetings, and ensuring that enough community support is received (Skinner & Drummond, 2022).

“Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book has been 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.
This documentary is important because his insights into human society are relevant to current world political affairs. He was a man of strong opinions who wrote about major topics related to the political views and historical movements of the 20th century. His views are still very relevant to our times, the first quarter of the 21st century and it is also a warning.
His best-known novels are “Animal Farm” and “Nineteen Eighty-Four”. Both novels have been turned into films and have enjoyed immense popularity.

The New York Times ranked Orwell second on a list of “The 50 greatest British writers of the 20th century and in 2016, his statue was installed in front of the BBC in London.
Some of his famous quotes:
In a time of deceit telling the truth is a revolutionary act.
-The most effective way to destroy people is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history.
-Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past.
-Doublethink means the power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one’s mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them.
- If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.
- In the face of pain, there are no heroes.
-Power is in tearing human minds to pieces and putting them together again in new shapes of your own choosing.
- We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it.
-To see what is in front of one’s nose needs a constant struggle.
