"Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past."

This quote directly relates to the purposeful revision of history. A government can easily control its citizenry if it controls what they think. Changing the past gives them a direct hold on the present, and the power to revise enables them to dictate and manipulate the future.
