Heather Winston has been turned into the perfect, compliant party member of the party. He now loves Big Brother. Orwell wants the audience to realize how Winston is forever altered, and rather than the rebellious, curious man he was before, his personality has been erased. He spends his days drinking and playing checkers in the corner of the bar, rather than discussing his beliefs with Julia is his hidden apartment. The individual in him has disappeared, and he now both physically and mentally belongs to the party. Like Winston, all rebellious citizens who oppose the party have been vaporized, or sent to the ministry of love and converted. As Winston claims in one long winded speech to Julia, “Nothing was you own except the few cubic centimeters inside your skull” (27). Now that he has been converted the Party has won, and they can do with him as they please, whether that means putting a bullet in his head, or leaving him on his own. If Winston were to die still opposing the party he would have won, but without that opposition he can be rid of.
