Nineteen Eighty-Four

This is done partly by the invention of new words, but chiefly by eliminating undesirable words by stripping such words as remained of unorthodox meanings whatever.

Airstrip One, for instance, had not been so called in those days: Your name was removed from the registers, every record of everything you had ever done was wiped out, your one-time existence was denied and then forgotten. Back in the flat he stepped quickly past the telescreen and sat down at the table again, still rubbing his neck.

Chapter 5 In the low-ceilinged canteen, deep underground, the lunch queue jerked slowly forward. They were in the saloon of a sinking ship, looking up at him through the darkening water. He had committed--would still have committed, even if he had never set pen to paper--the essential crime that contained all others in itself.

The Theory and Practice of Oligarchical Collectivism, by Emmanuel Goldstein, explains that each state is so strong it cannot be defeated, even with the combined forces of two superstates, despite changing alliances. He raised his head for a moment: The other three were routine matters, though the second one would probably mean some tedious wading through lists of figures.

A similar thing also happened during the French Revolution in which many of the original leaders of the Revolution were later put to death, for example Danton who was put to death by Robespierreand then later Robespierre himself met the same fate.

The sting of the catapult bullet had worn off. With its grace and carelessness it seemed to annihilate a whole culture, a whole system of thought, as though Big Brother and the Party and the Thought Police could all be swept into nothingness by a single splendid movement of the arm.


Winston is horrified by he sees. Newspeak is Ingsoc and Ingsoc is Newspeak,' he added with a sort of mystical satisfaction. The only degradation that Winston has not been through, is that he has not betrayed Julia.

There was a link of understanding between them, more important than affection or partisanship. The diary would be reduced to ashes and himself to vapour. Books, also, were recalled and rewritten again and again, and were invariably reissued without any admission that any alteration had been made.

The mysterious, powerful, God-like figure who sees and knows everything - but never appears in person. War is the economic basis of a hierarchical society. Day by day and almost minute by minute the past was brought up to date. And someone sitting to one side of him had said as he passed: The proles, it seems, though possessing more evidential freedom are actually as enslaved by the party as the rest of Oceania.

Always, at every moment, there will be the thrill of victory, the sensation of trampling on an enemy who is helpless.

Even to understand the word 'doublethink' involved the use of doublethink. To their astonishment O'Brien switches off the telescreen in the room. A person growing up with Newspeak as his sole language will no more know that equal had once had the secondary meaning of "politically equal" also free, To know and not to know, to be conscious of complete truthfulness while telling carefully constructed lies, to hold simultaneously two opinions which cancelled out, knowing them to be contradictory and believing in both of them, to use logic against logic, to repudiate morality while laying claim to it, to believe that democracy was impossible and that the Party was the guardian of democracy, to forget whatever it was necessary to forget, then to draw it back into memory again at the moment when it was needed, and then promptly to forget it again: Mrs Parsons' eyes flitted nervously from Winston to the children, and back again.
