Alternatively, he may.
To limit the ability of thinking and to isolate the inhabitants of Oceania from the outer world, Newspeak as the official language of the state does not develop at all.
The state believes that people should only know the words which can be used in routine or daily conversations because some words will rouse thoughts which are dangerous to the state and thus should be removed.
To express ideas related to freedom or to communicate thoughts which awaken people against the totalitarian system, people need certain words and expressions. The existence of such lexis certainly endanger the reign of the state. To avoid this risk, the government excludes them in the dictionary of the Newspeak.
This act saves the government because people cannot express disgust and hatred against it since words to express such feelings are totally absent from the language imposed by the state. Though Winston speaks out his heart and utters what he thinks to be true, power does not shift between them. Winston is badly punished whenever his answers do not comply with the wishes of the government.
To show how language is http: After he was arrested, Winston was tortured inexorably and in fact the physical torture is enough to compel the prisoners to confess, to humiliate them and destroy their power of arguing and reasoning; but the party agents are not satisfied with this; therefore, they use their ultimate weapon which is the merciless questioning that went on and on, hour after hour to damage their morale and ruin their guts.
Your especial fear is that it will be your backbone. You have a vivid mental picture of the vertebrate snapping apart and the spinal fluid dripping out of them. That is what you are thinking, is it not, Winston? Winston did not answer. The wave of pain receded almost as quickly as it had come. Will you please remember, throughout our conversation, that I have it in my power to inflict pain on you at any moment and to what-ever degree I choose?
If you tell me any lies, or attempt to prevaricate in any way, or even fall below your usual level of intelligence, you will cry out with pain, instantly.
Do you understand that? Orwell, This dialogue occurs after Winston was tortured and the electric current passed through his body for a moment. The pain is strange and Winston was really frightened. The illocutionary act attached to the statement is a threat and the perlocutionary act behind it is to frighten Winston and compel him to cooperate.
The party can control the opponents physically by putting them into jails, but it can occupy their mind only through altering their thoughts which may be carried out through constant and boring investigations. We convert him, we capture his inner mind, we reshape him.
We burn all evil and all illusion out of him; we bring him over to our side, not in ap-perance, but genuinely, heart and soul…. The investigation does not end here. It is a dream. It is impossible. It would never endure. It would disintegrate. It would commit suicide. You are under the impression that hatred is more exhausting than love. Why should it be? And if it were, what difference would that make?
Suppose that we choose to wear ourselves out faster. Suppose that we quicken the tempo of human life till men are senile at thirty.
Still what difference would it make? Can you not understand that the death of the individual is not death? The party is im-mortal. And yet he could not keep silent.
Somehow you will fail. Some-thing will defeat you. Life will defeat you. You are imag-ining that there is something called human nature which will be outraged by what we do and will turn against us. But we create human nature. Men are infinitely malleable.
Or perhaps you have returned to your old idea that the prole-tarians or the slaves will arise and overthrow us. Put it out of your mind. They are helpless, like the animals. Humanity is the party. The others are outside-irrelevant. In the end they will beat you. Sooner or later they will see you for what you are, and then they will tear you to pieces.
Or any reason why it should? I believe it. I KNOW that you will fail. The spirit of Man. Your kind is extinct; we are the inheritors. You are outside history, you are non-existent.
Black Winston is not sure what that something is, and when he says life he himself feels that something is not practical and must be replaced with a more concrete word. Winston mostly uses future simple because he is not certain about what he says, whether the government will collapse or not.
He begins with a conditional sentence if you are a man, …. Winston cannot take power, but he resists and he does not yield easily. Both of them use language as the ultimate weapon to attack, defend and perform counter-attacks. On the contrary, Winston speaks calmly and avoids using rude words because he knows that he will face physical torture.
This conversation takes place in Room The final stage of the interrogation is carried out in this inexplicable room. Something strange and horrific will happen to the prisoners in it; therefore, only mentioning its name is enough to crumple the opponents of the party.
This dialogue shows how Winston is defeated and obliged even to betray his beloved, Julia, without inflicting physical torture on him.
But at this moment the meaning of the mask-like attachment in front of it suddenly sank into him. His bowels seemed to turn to water. There was a wall of blackness in front of you, and a roaring sound in your ears. There was something terrible on the other side of the wall. You knew that you knew what it was, but you dared not drag it into the open.
It was the rats that were on the other side of the wall.
What is it that you want me to do? When he spoke it was in the schoolmasterish manner that he sometimes affected. There are occasions when a human being will stand out against pain, even to the point of death. But for everyone there is something unendurable — something that cannot be contemplated. Courage and cowardice are not involved. If you are falling from a height it is not cowardly to clutch at a rope. If you have come up from deep water it is not cowardly to fill your lungs with air.
It is merely an instinct which cannot be destroyed.
It is the same with the rats. For you, they are unendurable. They are a form of pressure that you cannot withstand, even if you wished to.
You will do what is required of you. He already knows that Winston has musophobia phobic fear of mice and rats. For instance, he says …. This utterance is related to the first part of the sentence in your case. If he simply says is rats , it may mean Winston is afraid of rats and it is a fact, but he says happens to be which surely means that using rats is among the methods that the party intends to exploit against Winston.
A sense of complete helplessness had descended upon him. To begin with, he did not know with any certainty that this was It must be round about that date, since he was fairly sure that his age was thirty-nine, and he believed that he had been born in or ; but it was never possible nowadays to pin down any date within a year or two.
