E71: 1984 Part 2, Chapter 5 – Propaganda

This is our thirteenth episode in our longer series onĀ Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell. We look at the meaning of propaganda, how different people respond to it, how young people and old people resist propaganda differently, history as a means to resist propaganda, and the scary thing about propaganda: it works. There’s a look at how love transforms Winston’s life. It takes superhuman effort merely to remain human.
