Orwell opposed Hitler and Stalin although, ironically, he looked like Hitler. His book 1984 is the story of Winston, a low-ranking Party Member, and his adventures to overthrow the Party. The citizens of Oceania are constantly monitored and must obey the government and Big Brother. It is a totalitarian state that is feared among the readers although, if one would closely examine the story, it is not that different from today 's world in some countries. Like some governments today, the Party restricts the citizens of Oceania by observing their demeanor through telescreens, employing doublethink to control the past, and resorting to the Thought Police to monitor Thought Crime.
Jefferson is unhappy with how Adams is running the country, so, he decides to run against him in the next election. This is the point where things begin to heat up and rhetoric comes into play. Angry that Jefferson has decided to run against him, Adams uses the newspaper to start a smear campaign against Jefferson. He does this with help from ethos, the "persuasion through the audience 's perception of the speaker", (Austin 664) and pathos, the “appeals to emotion.” (Austin 177) Because Adams is president people respect him and what he says, they take him on his word. Adams uses his credibility as president to manipulate the public into thinking terrible things about Jefferson.

In George Orwell’s 1984, he utilizes motif, imagery, and irony to display the negative effects of a totalitarian government can have on society. To begin, Orwell uses motif, more specifically the recurring theme of manipulation and authority, to convey his purpose. In Part I Chapter IV, Winston explains his job and what he does at the Ministry of Truth: “Every prediction made by the Party could be shown be documentary evidence to have been correct [...] Everything faded away into a shadow-world in which, finally, even the date of the year had become uncertain” (Orwell 40, 41). As Winston explains what he does for a living, readers begin to realize that Winston takes false predictions made by Big Brother and rewrites them to be true. The government literally rewrites history to make it seem like the ominous “Big Brother” is always correct.

This shows that some of the citizens have a pre-disposition for violent behavior.
In many situations all across the world there happens to be cases of governments becoming corrupt and gaining too much power. This situation occurred multiple times in author, George Orwell’s life.
