"1984"

What happens if the world you knew just collapsed? Everything you learned is told to be false, you have nothing else to base your life upon. What do you do? You were told 2+2=4, but now 2+2 could equal 5 or even 3, it doesn't matter. Would you conform?
Being conformed means in Greek "to conform one's self (i.e. one's mind and character) to another's pattern, (fashion one's self according to)." In the english dictionary it says "to act in accord with the prevailing standards, attitudes, practices, etc., of society or a group"

So knowing these definitions would you conform? Or would you stay, apart from "the prevailing standards, attitudes, practices, etc." of the world?
You might say that it depends on if they "prove" any different, but its not even that, they try to make you believe that 2+2 could equal anything. It sounds dumb, but is it possible to breakdown the human brain and conform it to anything you want it to be? change history as much as you want and still accept it? How much torture can you withhold before breaking down to conformity?
This might sound extreme, but think about it. How much pressure are you willing to withhold before rejecting Jesus Christ? Are you willing to go through any type of torture for the names' sake of Jesus? Don't comment on this so you could show that your willing to go through anything, just think about it. This took me awhile to come to grips with, so I don't think many people could come to grips with this in a minute unless you've thought of this question already. So think of the worst type of torture, not something that lasts for only a moment but enduring it for long periods of time.

Would you fight or would you conform?
