It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a man indifferent
to the ideology of the state must be in want
of a prison sentence. For the state does not tolerate
the indifferent man. It requires that each man proclaim with
fervor his allegiance to the New Dogma. However little known
the identity or views of such a man may be
on his first entering prison, the truth of his identity
is so well fixed in the minds of the administration,
that his individuality is considered the rightful property of his
jailors. He will become the accused, the counter-revolutionary, the reprobate.
