Through the use of this power, the Party eradicates any and all individuality including the freedom to intervene in governmental development.

The Party instills fear in the citizens of Oceania through the abuse of power, and thought control as well as the promotion of big brother.
In Oceania during an ice age when sea levels were exposed land bridges between the islands and narrowed sea crossings thus enabling migrations through the Indonesian archipelago. Australia was reached first then the Solomon Islands. In Oceania the population started to grow so people moved east spreading to islands. With their destination of the islands the climate was very tropical which enabled them to grow many things. With the increase in agriculture the economy grew culture spread and social classes developed. As you can see in some ways the people of Oceania and the Americas followed exactly what the people in Africa and Eurasia did.
Throughout history, Africa and the Middle East have been colonized by many different countries around the world. Imperialism and colonialism have had great impacts on the occupied country, economically, socially, and culturally.
Winston knew, from his own knowledge, that Oceania had once been in a mutual agreement with Eurasia however the Party stated that Oceania was never in good terms with Eurasia. This shows how easily the Party can alter the past and create a false history, yet they are also capable

Present day Haiti, once the French colony of Saint Domingue, previously bolstered the status of the wealthiest colony in the world based primarily on slave labor and cash crop production. Its economy was based off of the refining of sugar/sugar cane which proved to be the most profitable of their cash crops.

This made the Haitian Revolution the first successful slave revolt in the world, and established Haiti as the first Black Republic in the Western World.

Researchers argue that the genes point to contact between Native Americans and Easter Islanders before 1500 C.E. (Lawler 2017). Native American genetic patterns were about 8% of the genomes of the Rapa Nui islanders. (Lawler 2017). The genes appeared to be before islanders were enslaved by Europeans to work in South America.
