Winston is pretty good at this. Winston knows that people disappear if they say the wrong things, do the wrong things or for simply no reason at all.He sees people like Syme, developer of the Newspeak dictionary, and knows he is a dead man. Winston knows that Syme is way too intelligent and enthusiastic about his job for his own good. Sure enough, one day Syme is "un-personed".
