    To the future or to the past, to a time when thought is free, when men are different from one another and do not live alon- to a time when truth exists and what is done cannot be undone; From the age of uniformity, from the age of solitude, from the age of Big Brother, from the age of doublethink- greetings.

    In reality there was no escape. Even the one plan that was practiacable, suicide, they had no intention of carrying out. To hang on from day to day and from week to week, spinning out a present that had no future, seemed an unconquerable instinct, just as one's lungs will always draw the next breath so long as there is air available.

    The terrible thing that the Party had done as to persuade you that mere impulses, mere feelings, were of no account, while at the same time robbing you of all power over the material world. When once you were in the grip of the Party, what you felt or did not feel, what you did or refrained from doing, made literally no difference. Whatever happened you vanished, and neither you nor your actions were ever heard of again. You were lifted clean out of the stream of history. And yet to the people of only two generations ago this would not have seemed all-importation, because they were not attempting to alter history. They were governed by private loyalties which they did not question. What mattered were individual relationships, and a completely helpless gesture, an embrace, a tear, a wrod spoken to a dying man, could have value in itself.

    We control life, Winston, at all its levels/ You are imagining 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 inifinitely malleable.
