"Doublethink lies at the very heart of Ingsoc,
since the essential act of the Party is to use conscious
deception while retaining the firmness of purpose that goes

"We shall abolish the orgasm. Our neurologist are
at work upon it now. There will be no loyalty, except
loyalty towards the Party. There will be no love,

more need of science. . . If you
want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human
face -- for ever."1f
