Winston isn't actually referring to things we would consider corrupt. He lives in a world where children and other family members turn each other in..... if they were "corrupt to their bones" in the way Winston means it..... families would turn on one another. The family unit would be the priority. Think of this in the exact opposite context of what you iniitially surmised.
