They are torturing him mercilessly to put nothing else, but pain and fear in his mind so he would eventually wind up as everyone else. For example, if anyone ended up at the Ministry of Love and being tortured, sooner or later the people are going to be too afraid to stand up against the government. They will just have to comply without action or questioning. In conclusion, the government of Oceania uses the slogan "Ignorance is Strength" to keep their people obedient and to keep their power above all, by limiting their knowledge, no contact with one another, and torture upon anyone who disobeys orders or breaks a law.

1984 is the book that brings new meaning to the saying, “You are being watched.” George Orwell writes about a fictional negative utopian government that is all-knowing and all-powerful and takes place in London, England around 1984. The totalitarian government in 1984 reflects the author’s knowledge of the non-fictional government in Nazi Germany under the rule of Adolf Hitler and the Soviet Union under the rule of Joseph Stalin. Totalitarian government is a form of government where political authority possesses complete control of all aspects of life. This government restricts individuals from having any basic human rights, such as the right to freedom of speech, religion, and privacy.
Gru shows that he’s not a good person, he doesn’t do what is morally right, and he also will just come and tell you he’s a villain.

You want to live up to our silly reputation even if you do have to beat and starve men and drive me mad to do it.”

Smith has ideas that challenge the government’s policies but he has no one to share his thoughts with, because he fears that everyone is a secret agent of the thought police who are looking for rebellious thinkers like himself. He decides to write down his emotionally filled ideas in a diary which is a huge risk certainly punishable by death. Smith is always under watch by a telescreen in his room and he says “There was of course no way of knowing whether you were being watched at any given moment.

Author, George Orwell, conveys a dark and rocky relationship in his famous book 1984. In the scene I inspected specifically, the narrator describes a tension-filled room, their main purpose- to show the horrific effect of Room 101 and how it emotionally ruins the people involved in it. This scene engages readers with its twists and turns in the setting and it's downright “doomsday” mentality. It takes an ominous turn of course, ending on a pessimistic note. 1984 takes the small amount of optimism left and throws it out the window.
