13 Common Traits of Dystonian Fiction
“His voice, made metallic by the amplifiers, boomed forth an endless catalogue of atrocities, massacres, deportations, lootings, rapings, torture of prisoners, bombing of civilians, lying propaganda, unjust aggressions, broken treaties. It was almost impossible to listen to him without being first convinced and then maddened” (Orwell, 229)
“The program of the Two Minutes Hate varied from day to day, but there was none in which Goldstein was not the principal figure. He was the primal traitor, the earliest defiler of the Party’s purity. All subsequent crime against the Party, treacheries, acts of sabotage, heresies, deviations, sprang directly out of his teachings. Somewhere or other he was still alive and hatching his conspiracies: perhaps somewhere beyond the sea, or under the protection of his foreign paymasters” (Orwell, 14)
“We have beaten you, Winston. We have broken you up. You have seen what your body is like. Your mind is in the same state. I do not think there can be much pride left in you. You have been kicked and flogged and insulted, you have screamed with pain, you have rolled on the floor in your own blood and vomit.” (Orwell, 344)
“On the contrary, war hysteria is continuous and universal in all countries, and such acts as raping, looting, the slaughter of children, the reduction of whole populations to slavery, and reprisals against prisoners which extend even to boiling and burying alive, are looked upon as normal” (Orwell, 153)
““It’s coffee,” he murmured, “real coffee.”
“It’s Inner Party coffee. There’s a whole kilo here,” she said.
“How did you manage to get hold get hold of all these things?”
“It’s all Inner Party stuff. There’s nothing those swine don’t have, nothing.” (Orwell, 117)
“Thus at one moment Winston's hatred was not turned against Goldstein at all, but, on the contrary, against Big Brother, the party, and the Thought Police; and at such moments his heart went out the lonely, derided heretic on the screen, sole guardian of truth and sanity in a world of lies.” (Orwell, 14)
“The telescreen received and transmitted simultaneously. Any sound that Winston made, above the level of a very low whisper, would be picked up by it; moreover, so long as he remained within the field of vision which the metal plaque commanded, he could be seen as well as heard.” (Orwell, 6)
