O'Brien's responds to the quotation with a reference to Nazi Germany
(or whatever distasteful regime you want) poses the conflict quite
well: On the one hand, there is the push for individuals to give up
individuality for the good of teh group, and the good of teh group
presumbably aslo serves the good of teh individual ; on the other hand, there
is the problem of knowing, collectively, when the good of the group stops
serving the good of the individual so that change can take place.
