The Period 5 Discussion Continues Over Pages 167-224
Let the discussion continue!! Here are some questions to ponder:
Would you rather be a party member or a prole? (Living Conditions vs. Freedom)
Would society as it stands in the book be able to function without war?
Is it possible for the Brotherhood to exist? How would they get around the prying eyes of the party?
Who do you think Winston can trust? Who shouldn't he trust?
Could Winston and Julia really make a difference in bringing down the party?
These questions tie back to the Fishbowl:
How long do you think the telescreen was present in the room? If it had been there long, why didn't the Party arrest Julia and Winston earlier, rather than waiting for multiple months?
Do you think the Mr. Charrington that Winston saw when he was being arrested was the 'real' Mr. Charrington?
