Two Minutes’ Hate

“As usual, the face of Emmanuel Goldstein, the Enemy of the People, had flashed on to the screen. (…) The programmes of the Two Minutes Hate varied from day to day, but there was none in which Goldstein was not the principal figure. He was the primal traitor (…). Somewhere or other he was still alive and hatching his conspiracies: perhaps somewhere beyond the sea, under the protection of his foreign paymasters, perhaps even – so it was occasionally rumoured – in some hiding-place in Oceania itself.” — George Orwell, 1984.
