A fascinating question.
Those conversations reveal that ambitious sweep of the philosophy. By reworking language, they hope and plan to make it impossible for people to think independently, or, indeed, to think in any way that does not support their goals. Syme's other comments indicate how much the Party is driven by hatred, and how much class antagonism there is in the Party (look at how he says the proles aren't really people).
