Orwell get the point; freedom (the attractor of free will) *is* 2+2=4. And this can be real relief ... if you have the chance to be able to say that 2+2=4 in your neighborhood. I am living in a society who has always defended my right to say that 2+2=4, until I said so. Oh no! I was not supposed to say it. "2+2=4" is the liberating power making it possible for birds and humans to fly. "2+2=5" or any BS of that style is what makes it possible to be tortured by your pairs, as Orwell illustrated quite well.


2+2=5 for very large values of 2.  :-)
