Here's an email:
Given that more and more underlings and cards less than the ace of spades are caught, but Saddam and bin Laden somehow keep being missed begs the question: are they not being caught for the same reason that Goldstein was never caught and never would be? Is it because, otherwise Big Brother has to start talking about when and how we'll be "getting back to normal" and giving up those extraordinary powers needed during this time of crisis?
...and my response:
Yes, you've figured out the trick correctly. Big Brother has the aces up his sleeve. Goldstein owns all the world's casinos. Life's one big crooked card game to the gangsters.
