Why would the Party consider,

doing anything that suggests a taste for solitude, even to go for a walk by yourself, was always slightly dangerous and call it ownlife?

A

The Party thinks that one of its own should always want the company of others who share similar interests.

B

The Party thinks that times of solitude offer too much temptation for committing thought crimes against them.

C

The Party only allows times of solitude to members of Big Brother; it is seen as a compensation for the work they do. Taking it on your own would be like stealing from the Party… a crime.

D

The Party views solitude as a punishment of sorts so one can think about the crimes and reflect about what they would do differently.

E

The Party worries about the surrounding areas where the Proles reside; they deem them to be dangerous and not a good place to be out on your own without protection.
