What techniques are in the quotes below (they are from 1984 Ch4)

"Simply at tracking down and deleting from the Press the names of people who had been vaporized and were therefore considered never to
have existed."

"Statistics were just as much fantasy in their original version as in their rectified version.’"

would contrasting/juxtaposition/antithesis of statistics and fantasy be a legit technique
Yes, but you use techniques to accompany your argument, so it really depends on what you're trying to get across

antithesis would as it is two contrasting ideas, not contrast or juxtaposition - contrast is not a legit technique

juxtaposition is more of a visual technique not really a contrasting effect between two seperate ideas

What why? Contrast is a decent technique when coupled with an adjective/adverb

my teacher said it doesn't have the same affect as juxtaposition and antithesis. And both these techniques already cover most instances where you need these types of techniques

Its about how the party manipulates facts to further their own agenda and so control the perception of the population regarding their own human experiences

1st qt: Synechdoce, aligning one's existence to their identity/place in INGSOC.

2nd: Irony/paradox, how can you 'rectify' something that was originally a fantasy?
