He ends up suggesting that she should endure the punishment instead, which was the one thing he swore to never do. The abuse that he endured at the hands of the party finally forced him to go against the on thing he loved the most. The Party also broke WInston’s spirit to the point where he finally believed the one thing he was adamantly against. Throughout the entire book, Winston claimed his hatred toward big brother and acted out in direct rebellion. By the time he was released from torture, he stated that, “He had won the victory over himself.
O’Brien said to Winston after one of his torturing session, “We do not destroy the heretic because he resists us…We burn all evil and illusion out of him; we bring him over to our side, not in appearance, but genuinely, heart and soul. We make him ourselves before we kill him.” (PG 255, Orwell). Meaning anyone who doesn’t believe or feel the same way they do will be broken as a person and ultimately killed.

In life, perception and reality rarely parallel; similarly, this idea is true for Winston in George Orwell’s dystopian novel 1984. Winston 's unyielding beliefs that a rebellion - due to Big Brother’s “ all seeing manifestation” (“1984” 15) - is crucial is fostered by two men Winston believed to be trustworthy: O’Brien and Charrington. However, in the end they betray him as they expose Winston as a traitor to the Party and Big Brother.

George Orwell’s novel, 1984 and The Time Machine by H.G. Wells, both share fear as a common theme. Fear as a tool can control, change, and force people to do things that do not seem acceptable, such as make people turn on others, become violent, and forgo their belief system. Fear can be used in many different ways, such as controlling a population of people to gain power or wealth. In The Time Machine, a group of people called the Eloi, had direct power over another group called the Morlocks. In 1984, one small group of people called the “brother hood” had complete control of society.

The world of today is much different than that of 1984 because the world today is filled with human connection that comes as a direct result of our freedom to show expression. In 1984, the Party restricts the general population from showing their true emotions, which in turn limits the presence of human connection. At the beginning of the novel, Winston explains that facecrime is the act of wearing an improper expression on your face, and it is punishable by death (Orwell 62). This limits people’s ability to connect with one another.
Throughout the course of the move, 1984, by George Orwell, the concept of an ominous and omniscient protector conflicted Winston Smith, the protagonist.
