This is our eighth episode in our longer series on Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell. Winston goes for a walk and attempts an amateur historical interview on a muddle-brained ole prole. Sociological research takes time, the aggregation of many interviews, freedom to compile the evidence. Winston’s not going to be able to fight the Party by going out and furtively talking to one prole here and there. Winston caves and goes back to the junk shop where he bought the diary. Dystopia and having to look over your shoulder all the time are not congenial to being human.
