“ If there is hope it lies in the proles”

All the hope was deposited in the proles, because only there in those
swarming disregarded masses, 85% of the population of oceania , could
generate to destroy the party. Winston sees the power in the proles
even though the party sees them as weak and incapable to revolt. He
thinks this because his perspective is that the proles are the ones
who have been dehumanized the least,all the maltreatment they have
received. The party found ways to distract and ensure that they were
unaware of the evils of INGSOC. Winston sees this because he observes
their individuality by signing and it can mean they can go further
with individuality. Although it appears that the proles seem less
human to the Party members, it is Winston’s perspective that they are
the ones who have been dehumanized the least. The party seems to have
total control over their lives, but in reality the proles are the
group that has maintained the most freedom because they have kept some
of their own thoughts and desires, and this is the reason why there is
still hope deposited in the proles to become something better and
actually do something for their own benefit and for others.
