Rereading Nineteen Eighty Four – Part III Chap 3 (12)

The World of Nineteen Eighty Four is;  “A world of fear and treachery a world of trampling and being trampled upon, a world which will grow not less but more merciless as it refines itself.”

” Progress in our world will be progress towards more pain. The old civilizations claimed that they were founded on love or justice. Ours is founded upon hatred.”

” In our world there will be no emotions except fear, rage, triumph, and self-abasement.  Already we are breaking down the habits of thought which have survived from before the Revolution.”

” We have cut the links between child and parent, and between man and man, and between man and woman. No one dares trust a wife or a child or a friend any longer. But in the future there will be no wives and no friends.

Children will be taken from their mothers at birth, as one takes eggs from a hen. “

“The sex instinct will be eradicated. Procreation will be an annual formality like the renewal of a ration card. We shall abolish the orgasm. Our neurologists are at work upon it now.”
