    It's been awhile since I read 1984 but I 'think' the impression a reader is supposed to get is thta Winston's job was mundane and ordinary and not 'important' at all in the great scheme of things. Just a thought. Now read for yourself and see what YOU think.

    Winston Smith is a civil servant, but his job is important because he is an editor responsible for the revisionist history which is the Party's official version of the past. Smith is in effect a censor, he rewrites records and alters photos and incinerates original documents.
