also i always wondered if Emmanuel Goldstein was a made up character created by Big Brother to further exploit the masses
He is a very real threat that exists, he consistently denies The Party's ideals. He is a constant threat that commits murder, acts of treason, and disturbs the peace that exists in the glorious nation of Oceania.
No, but in all seriousness, I wondered about that too. They probably just created him as an excuse to focus all the hatred onto someone that can always be there (As opposed to Eurasia and Eastasia). He's about as existent as Big Brother.
