Winston is very frustrated. The old man only talks about fighting, drinking, and gambling in the old days. Winston can't get any real political history out of him. The man simply does not answer Winston as to whether life was better before or after the Revolution. He feels disheartened that the Proles will never be able to do anything to begin change.
