Jones, Aaronson, and Rutherford were among the last of the original
leaders of the Revolution in which Big Brother's rule was established.
After Big Brother had achieved his position of ultimate power, those
prominent in the Revolution were systematically wiped out. Like the
others before them, Jones, Aaronson, and Rutherford were arrested, then
they vanished for a year or more. After this interval, they reappeared
to incriminate themselves, confessing to a variety of crimes including
sharing intelligence with the enemy, embezzlement, murder, and acts of
sabotage. I hoped this helped you!
