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. :-)
