Why is it that Winston never tries to group together proles to have a larger group of people against the government? Everybody knows the proles either don't care or don't realize how corrupt and destroying the Big Brother government is. Why is this? Are they just too ignorant to care or is it possible that the older generations that were alive before Big Brother might have actually been brainwashed by a machine? Looking back, when Winston asked proles about life before Big Brother, no one actually answered his questions. So could this lead to show the prole section is actually supervised but isn't show off because Big Brother wants people to think they're safe to talk there? And if this is possible, than could room 101 be a room where memories could be lost and identities changed?
