1984 and 2009.

1984

Quote

The phrase "two plus two equals five" ("2 + 2 = 5") is a slogan used in George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four as an example of an obviously false dogma one must believe, similar to other obviously false slogans by the Party in the novel. It is contrasted with the phrase "two plus two makes four", the obvious—but politically inexpedient—truth. Orwell's protagonist, Winston Smith, uses the phrase to wonder if the State might declare "two plus two equals five" as a fact; he ponders whether, if everybody believes it, does that make it true? The Inner Party interrogator of thought-criminals, O'Brien, says of the mathematically false statement that control over physical reality is unimportant; so long as one controls their own perceptions to what the Party wills, then any corporeal act is possible, in accordance with the principles of doublethink ("Sometimes they are five. Sometimes they are three. Sometimes they are all of them at once"). wikipedia


2009

Quote

In presidential debates prior to 2009 Iranian presidential elections reformist candidate Mir Hossein Mousavi accused his interlocutor, president Ahmadinejad, of being illogical and said: "If you ask (the president) what two by two makes he would answer five." In the following days one of the slogans chanted by Mousavi's supporters was "two by two makes five!" wikipedia

Thank you Alfie. In the meanwhile I found it on the IMDB, and it has its own official Website, too. Original English title is Two & Two. Director: Babak Anvari, Iranian living in London.

  • Even crazier after all these years
When I was teaching English at a government school in 2008, I would deliberately misspeak to encourage the students to challenge me.  The powers that be apparently never figured out that there was a rabble-rouser in their midsts.  Raising free-thinkers is the foundation of any truly free form of government.

Then, 2+2=5 is also possible. For example...
