In Oceania, brainwashing is an effective method to dominate the society. Almost all of them have been brainwashed even children. Those children have been turned into spies. They have been taught and brainwashed to adore Big Brother, the party, or anything connected to it, such as the yelling of slogans, the songs, or whatever.
