Emanuel Goldstein
John Boswall

Emanuel Goldstein is the Nineteen Eighty-Four equivalent of a combined Saddam Hussein and Al-qaeda: a scary bogey-man brought out as the sole arch enemy that everyone should be afraid of; a flimsy justification for complete draconian control of every aspect of society, under the ridiculous premise that a single man constantly threatens the very existence of a paranoid global military-industrial superpower with unlimited resources.

We never see him in person, instead he appears regularly in staged on-screen appearances, carefully scripted to show ‘The Party’ in the best possible light, and as a continual reminder the people that they must be afraid, very afraid, and also extremely grateful to ‘The Party’ for deliverance from this monster. This takes place in the “Two Minutes Hate” – a daily broadcast to reinforce the message.

Nineteen Eighty-FourQuotes

Does this sound familiar?

O’Brien: There are thought criminals who maintain that the resistance is not real. Believe me, Winston, it is very real. Perhaps you are not familiar with how it operates.

Winston Smith: I am attentive to the news.

O’Brien: Indeed. Then perhaps you imagine a huge network of conspirators prepared to commit any atrocity to weaken and demoralize the order of our society. The reality is infinitely more subtle. If Goldstein himself fell into the hands of the Thought Police, he could not give them a list of his agents. Such a list does not exist. They are not an organization in the sense we know. Nothing holds it together but an idea. Individually, they cheat, forge, blackmail, corrupt children, spread disease and prostitution, in the name of spreading knowledge from generation to generation, until… in a thousand years…

Winston reads from Goldstein’s book:

Winston Smith: “In accordance to the principles of Doublethink, it does not matter if the war is not real, or when it is, that victory is not possible. The war is not meant to be won. It is meant to be continuous. The essential act of modern warfare is the destruction of the produce of human labor. A hierarchical society is only possible on the basis of poverty and ignorance. In principle, the war effort is always planned to keep society on the brink of starvation. The war is waged by the ruling group against its own subjects. And its object is not victory over Eurasia or Eastasia, but to keep the very structure of society intact.”
