Example text

To take but one critical example : truth as such in its logico-empirical sense or in WINSTON SMITH IN AFRICA 27 the sense of twelve good men and true has become nearly meaningless. A party boss-indeed anyone in a position of authority-when trying to elucidate a question will label the information supplied to him correct or incorrect, not true or false even when the latter would appear to be appropriate adjectives. The implicit reference is not to individual judgment but to Party dogma. People whose knowledge of the lingua franca may be very limited but who must use it to get by, contextually grasp meanings of "correct" and "incorrect" that hover around pleasing and displeasing one's masters.

Unlike the original Winston Smith-and one might add some workers' movements in contemporary Eastern Europe-he is not interested in the improvement of the system from within but in its overthrow from outside. He has thus no time for heretics : his hopes squarely lie with the unfaithful. Imperfect isolation far from explains why this should be so. Perhaps the shallowness of African Marxist practice and belief is related to the preexistent shallowness of monotheism and of literacy. Even if not, those light foundations are reflected on and compounded by the attitude of Winston Smith and, more importantly, of many other loyal "outer party" members toward the regime.

The middle stratum of any Marxist or non-Marxist society harbors people like Winston Smith-or, for that matter, Eric Blair-who cannot accept the established values in which they have been reared and yet are unable to reject them. In open societies such difficulties largely remain private. Where doubts are justiciable and dissent has to find expression in rebellion, Winston Smith may appear. ) In Marxist Africa, how does the epigone differ from the original? He is not inspired by any Goldstein. The African Winston Smith is neither cut off from the prerevolutionary past nor isolated from the outside-and plural-world.
