Then the voice asks, “why not?”

Based on this passage from George Orwell’s book, 1984.

Winston Adams is being questioned by O’Brien.

‘You could not create such a world as you have just described. It is a

‘Why?’

‘It is impossible to found a civilization on fear and hatred and cruelty.
It would never endure.’

‘Why not?’

‘It would have no vitality. It would disintegrate. It would commit
suicide.’

‘Nonsense.

Why should it be?

And if it were, what difference would that make?
