* The proles' brainwashed life is actually made sweet by how utterly carefree they are, and how they don't have to worry as much as Winston does. Except for the National Lottery, which is really, ''really'' SeriousBusiness. Winston eventually comes to the conclusion that the proles are morally better than Party members:
-->They were not loyal to a party or a country or an idea, they were loyal to one another. For the first time in his life he did not despise the proles or think of them merely as an inert force which would one day spring to life and regenerate the world. The proles had stayed human. They had not become hardened inside.

* The Appendix. Whether it's In-Universe or not, its existence, which is written in the ''past tense'', is one of the only shreds of hope in this book that Big Brother's tyranny was overthrown somehow. Bear in mind that this particular world is considered to be ''the'' CrapsackWorld of all crap worlds in Fictional History.
