The source of the power is the Party. The Party's only interest is perpetual power. They achieve this by early indoctrination into the party and brainwashing. They control people with constant surveillance and manipulation. Fear and conformity become the constant motif of the lives of the Outer Party. The Party does not engage with Proles in the same way. The Proles live a life separate from the Outer Party. Proles are afforded freedoms simply because the Party feels that they are too ignorant to be any kind of threat to the Party.
