Goldstein

1984-YLVCUL

Which description does NOT best reflect the image of Goldstein that the Party most desires their citizens to view?

A

"Goldstein had fled and was hiding, no one knew where…" Goldstein is a coward; he is weak because he would rather run than stand up and face the Party for his wrong-doings.

B

"…he 'Goldstein' was advocating freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of assembly, freedom of thought…" The Party views Goldstein as a threat to their power; he is one who may actually have the power to start a rebellion against the Party and win causing chaos in Oceania for all of the citizens.

C

"The dull, rhythmic tramp of soldiers' boots formed the background to Goldstein's bleating voice…" The Party displays to their citizens how it is easy to block out Goldstein's attempts to corrupt their minds with his senseless talk of a revolution.

D

"The program of the Two Minutes Hate varied from day to day, but there was none in which Goldstein was not the principal figure… the primal traitor… earliest defiler of the Party's purity." The Party consistently presents Goldstein as one who is guilty of the obstruction of justice according to the Party and creates a sense of weariness at the mention of his name.

E

All of the images presented are those the Party most desires their citizens to think at the mention of Goldstein.
