This is the citizen waking up from the brain-washing. Unfortunately for the citizen, the thought police found out and transformed the citizen back into a follower. And they ask for someone brave and all the qualities of a leader.

New ending to chapter 7 of part 1
Winston picked up the children's history book and gazed upon the mesmerizing face of big brother on the front cover. The soft eyes gazed into his own. It was as if some force was rubbing your back comfortingly, taking away your worries, giving you all the knowledge you desire. The party knows best, and we all are wise enough to listen. Big Brother is our leader and we must follow him. Some choose to defy him, but they do not understand Big Brother's logic. Big Brother knows all, he is all powerful, he has knowledge of everything in both the mortal and immortal worlds. O'Brien is similar, he knows so much! Everyone enjoys O'Brien's company, he's comforting to his comrades. Big Brother is our savior, and continues to save us from the terrors of the world and tells us right from wrong. He watches us to keep us safe. And our two minutes of hate is much cheaper than going to a therapist. Big Brother is our everything.
