It is a direct order because it is saying that they want you. Not maybe come join but more like join. This is a typical recruiting sign or poster for the army in the 1900’s.There was not much choice but to join if you were a young man.

4) Rationalization- In the novel 1984, Winston feels uncomfortable during the two minutes hate but he rationalizes it by thinking, well everyone else is doing it so I may as well. Deep down Winston knows his thoughts are wrong and should stand up to the party. Nobody else is standing up to the party though so Winston does not and thinks this is how it always has been. He feels alone and entrapped within himself. Big Brother is manipulating Oceania to follow and think as one.
