The Ministry of Truth is one of four Ministries used by INGSOC to govern Oceania


The Ministry of Truth is in charge of propaganda; following the principle of doublethink, its name means the precise opposite of what it actually does, as "Minitrue" (its Newspeak name) concerns itself with spreading lies.

The Ministry makes sure all information available to the population of Oceania conforms with current party lines. They are also in charge of changing accounts of the past and destroying any evidence that will prove the Party false.

Another main function was the construction of the Newspeak language.
