2 + 2 = 5 2 + 2 = 5

2+2=5 taken from george Orwell’s 1984

2+2=5 inspired by the Radiohead song of the same name. Taken from George Orwell’s novel Nineteen Eighty-Four. The ‘Thought Police’ in the novel coerce self-aware citizens into admitting that two plus two equals five to prove the point that even though two plus two does not logically equal five, logic does not matter when no one else is willing to agree that two plus two equals anything else, under threat of pain or death.

Yeah, I know it’s pretentious—but I like it.
