    Because of this I've always had this question: why would anyone with a triple digit IQ join the party? Why not just go through life pretending to be a dumb a$$? I can honestly say life as a Prole is better than that of a member of the Outer Party. Maybe that extra chocolate ration draws people to the party, I don't know. Someone PLEASE ENLIGHTMENT ME! Tell me why I'm wrong.

    I'm part of the Prole class so the Ministry of Truth gives two #@$#! what I have to think 2 + 2 equals. The elites view the Proles as animals.
    You would know this if you actually read the book, but instead you respond with memes.
