By the end of part one of 1984 Winston has been through a lot, and he has shared his curiosity and anticipation of a rebellion against Big Brother.
Winston lives a harsh and limited life: he is watched at every turn, and forced to submit to the Party in almost every aspect of his existence. In Oceania, those who do not submit to the Party suffer the wrath of the Thought Police. The Party maintains control over its citizens through the use of telescreens that transmit constant streams of propaganda while observing the citizens. Mandatory organized propaganda events such as the Two Minutes Hate and Hate Week are controlled and observed by the telescreens. The Party controls its citizens and maintains its power through the use of extensive psychological manipulation, commonly known as brain washing.
Winston views the regularities of his world - the face of Big Brother, the telescreens, the rundown apartments, and the sad existence of his neighbour and her Party-worshipping children - with sadness and disdain. He has deep reservations about the Party and believes there must be hope for a brighter future, in which personal freedoms are permitted. However, his neighbour's children's powerful loyalty to the Party scares Winston. He sees how young minds can be moulded into loyalty for the Party through organizations such as the Spies and the Youth League, which encourage children to report anyone they believe to be a thought criminal - even their parents - to the Party. It’s easier now for the Party to promote loyal supporters, because Winston mentions that in 20 years, nobody who lived through the revolution will be alive. This means that children born into the Party will thrive in being their spies, they have never known any different.
When we meet Winston, these rebellious notions have clearly been happening for quite some time. Now, in writing his diary, he is taking the first actual step towards any sort of rebellion. In putting his pen to paper, Winston knows he is committing thoughtcrime. He is now a criminal, and knows that his eventual arrest is inevitable. But still he does it, every time his pen scrapes his pen across a page he hopes. Even though there is still nothing inspiring in the future to hope for. One part it states: ‘Thought, write, act’ He thinks about a rebellion, he writes about a rebellion and he acts every time he meets Julia.
Winston is a unique citizen of Oceania. Although he was raised from an early age in the loyalty to the Party, he carries a strong sense of individual freedom, while those around him thrive in Party propaganda and find no fault with the Party's constant and...
