Yash Patel Mrs. Choi AP Literature October 2015 1984 Dialectal Journals for Part 2 Text Response 1. “In front of him was an enemy who was trying to kill him; in front of him, also was a human creature… He had indistinctively started forward to help her,” (Orwell 106) This quote shows that even in this time where they live in a life where they are being manipulated, Winston is still living in a time where he is experiencing hatred, but still maintains what keeps him normal or humane, which keeps him separated from everyone else. This hate is showing that people still have hate for each other and still want to kill each other but it also shows the true human he is by helping her when she was threatened.

“There was a direct, intimate connection between chastity and the political orthodoxy…” (Orwell 133) I think that in this quote, it shows that they are about to have sex or have already started, but it seems as if they have the fear of what sex will do to their lives, such as the fear of what will come out of the act of having sex. I also think it means that they weren’t that comfortable when they were going to have sex because maybe they were scared of what would happen due to the government (The Party) restricting intimacy and love.

“It’s the one thing they can’t do. They can make you say anything-anything-but they can’t make you believe in it. They can’t get inside you.” (Orwell 166) The fact that he is saying that the party can make you say something but they can’t make you believe in it shows, that was a form in which he coped with things and it was a way for him to escape the world he was living in and imagine a whole new world like the “Golden State” he had dreamed about. “They can’t get inside you,” seems contradicting with his character because he believed in so many things like the thought police and death if you were caught having your own thoughts. Although they can’t physically get inside you they get inside you through the use of terror, and although these things terrified him there was no evidence that it was real, or that the thought police would be watching you through the television screens.

I have to admit that this story really gets me excited. I’ve never been more obsessed with a fanfiction before.

I don’t know, I’ve always just liked Felix’s character and thought that he was worth being put into the Miraculous Universe instead of the Quantic one.

(Orwell 193). They want to eliminate individual freedom and thoughts for good. This essay confirms Orwell’s warnings because they have fixed their own “truths” just to abide by the government and their lies. People’s love for the Party was very strong they took back their statements and described them as mistakes, justifying the government. In Nineteen Eighty – Four Julia says “It’s always one bloody war after another, and one knows the news is all lies anyways” (Orwell
Fear is a psychological and physiological response to distressing or dangerous circumstances. Fears are often rational – the fear of death, for example, or of harm to oneself of those one cares about. Some fears are more irrational, such as phobias of certain animals or things not causing immediate danger. In any case, fear is a powerful response and causes someone to be weaker and more submissive. 1984 by George Orwell illustrates how fear, a natural human experience, can be used as a means for a person’s submission to authority, In the novel, Winston Smith, the protagonist, is a working-class citizen in a futuristic, dystopian London.

Throughout the novel, Winston constantly references the fact that ‘Today there were fear, hatred and pain’ and that in this society of Ingsoc ‘No emotion was pure, because everything was mixed up with fear and hatred’ and this is displayed in many, various ways. An example of this is when Winston writes about when he went to see a film stating that the ‘Audience were much amused by shots of a great huge fat man trying to swim away with a helicopter after him’ and that ‘there was a wonderful shot of a child’s arm going up up up right up into the air…and there was a lot of applause from the party seats’. This displays the extent to which
Throughout the book the slogans of “war is peace, freedom is slavery, [and] ignorance is strength” is a forced acceptance by all citizens (Orwell 16). These particular slogans, that exemplify doublethink, are plastered everywhere. The illogicalness of doublethink completely surrounds the citizens, constantly exposing them to it. The second characteristic of monopoly over mass media is quite evident in Winston 's life. Government employees run the internet, newspapers, and radio/tv announcements.
