From the Paper:

"Clearly, this echoes Stalin's purges of the 1930s where perhaps millions of individuals were arrested, imprisoned and forced to confess to crimes that they may or may not have committed. Soviet citizens were watched constantly and the smallest accusation could result in being put on trial. The only thing that the Soviet Union wasn't capable of doing was actually seeing inside people's heads. As it was, the government simply assumed that the people were guilty of crimes against the state. The purges were driven by Stalin's paranoia and fear of dissension. The same could be said of Oceania where any small disturbance could become larger and threaten the integrity of the state. Everything had to be under the control of the central government."
