What is the greatest threat in 1984 - George Orwell?

The greatest threat depends on your perspective. From that of the everyday Joe, like poor Winston, the greatest threat is a total annihilation of personal freedoms, of which there are few left. This means to him a lack of emotion.

For the government, the greatest threat is freedom from the government. The ability to fend for oneself is terrifying to a group so much concerned with power.

Also, you really should read the book. There's sex and violence and hive-minded oppression. It's quite good.

What is INGSOC from the book 1984?

"Ingsoc" : "English Socialism" .

Addendum:

During the time of Orwell's writing, it was quiet common for political organizations to create portmanteau abbrieviations. For example, the Communist International was generally known as the Commintern, Soviet agitation and propaganda was often rendered agitprop, etc. Orwell proposed in 1984 that this trend would spread throughout the language - hence he developed the political language of Newspeak which is full of such things. In the appendix to 1984 Orwell makes comments about these abbrieviations resulting in reduced thought, allowing one to say words as just a series of sounds rather than having to dwell on what the words truly mean. If he was writing today, he might have criticized the more modern trend towards using initial letters (FBI, CIA, POTUS, etc).

Why did George Orwell write 1984?

George Orwell wrote 1984 as a warning after World War II, with the intention of describing a society that he would never want to live the day to see. Unfortunatly, he knew that it was more of a precaution to say this is how life for some was like in Germany or the Soviet Union. Both of these places having been in power during his time he wrote this to show the rest of the world how it was too late for them, and coming nearer for everyone else. During the war, Orwell worked for the British Broadcasting Company, where he got the idea for newspeak.
