Well, that's the intention, but V's whole deal is being very effective at that challenging that kind of thing.Zontar said:But a problem is that the Proles don't organize, and in fact can't given how the system is set up. That's the whole reason they aren't monitored to a noteworthy level: they aren't a threat to the Party. They're too busy trying to get by day-to-day and maybe get their hands on one of life's small pleasures outside of basic necessities to even have the idea cross their minds.

It's not like their no longer taking part in the system would be missed, their labour is mostly wasted intentionally on things which will create no value. For all we know Prole uprisings are common but are dealt with with efficiency through quarantine and starvation.
