The Party demands absolute conformity in both action and thought from all inhabitants, on threat of vaporization.

The struggle between O'Brien and Winston at the end. O'Brien is attempting to condition Winston into loving big brother but Winston's resistance lies in the fact that big brother may be able to control people but they cannot control his thoughts.

While being tortured and destroyed both mentally and physically, Winston discusses the fundamental ideals of the Party and how they remain in power for so long.
