Winston Smith is the central character of Nineteen Eighty-Four. He represents the thoroughly oppressed and psychologically imprisoned citizen of a regime that allows no dissent, even within one’s own thoughts. He is tortured by self-doubt, and the conflict that boils within him as he is unable to express the growing realisation that something is terribly wrong.

Nineteen Eighty-Four – Winston Smith Quotes

Winston Smith: [voice-over] Thoughtcrime is death. Thoughtcrime does not entail death. Thoughtcrime IS death. I have committed even before setting pen to paper the essential crime that contains all others unto itself.

Winston Smith: We are the dead.

Winston Smith: Freedom is the freedom to say two plus two equals four. If that is granted all else will follow.

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.”

Winston Smith: Julia? Are you awake? There is truth, and there is untruth. To be in a minority of one doesn’t make you mad.
