Is O'Brien a Victim or a Villain
Can we hold him as a person responsible or is he a product of his society?
O'Brien in my opinion is a product of his society. He doesn't know anything else right from wrong the society he has been living in is teaching them all these things. What would you expect its either you follow the rules or face a horrible consequence. If you grew up learning one thing wouldn't you keep following that one thing? I honestly don't blame him for being so corrupt its the only thing he knows.
