Orthodoxy is Unconsciousness by Vanessa Eagles (Highly Commended)

You are a flaw.
That is what you are thinking.
You did not learn from your mistakes,
And zeal was not enough.
It must be of your own free will, because
Orthodoxy is unconsciousness.

You are a flaw,
But not a dead man yet.
Though you will be annihilated in the past as well as in the future,
You still exist in the present.
But does he exist in the same way I exist
You asked and I answered;
You do not exist.

You are a flaw.
You are here because you have failed in humility.
You would not make the act of submission.
Freedom is Slavery, Winston.
Big Brother is always watching.
But when you delude yourself into thinking that you see something,
you assume that everyone else sees the same thing as you.
But reality is not external!
Reality exists in the human mind, nowhere else.
So when I ask you how many fingers,
you will answer I don’t know.
Because two and two make five.

The Party said so.
