You are a parrot. I am a parrot. Everyone is a parrot until one thinks, starts being selfish, self-preocupied and cares for himself; not for a bureaucrat. A bureaucrat can be the boss, not a leader, which means he orders and we execute. We are the ones that damage society by being, parrots and believe everything the bureaucrats tell us. That system can be easily identified in George Orwell’s astonishing book, 1984. Orwell speaks out his mind about the future. He believed that in 1984 would be like that. Who would have imagined that his book is not just a prediction of the year 1984 but in fact, his book reflects the society in which we live nowadays? Many of his predictions in 1984 don’t just appear in that year, but also in 2016. Since 1984…show more content…
George Orwell was right to predict a future as he does in 1984. It’s a future full of terror, hate, lies that hunts not those who are in power, but to the hardworking people in the country.

How was he able to control kids and receive love? The answer is, according to George Orwell’s book 1984, that “Power is in tearing human minds to pieces and putting them together again in new shapes of your own choosing.” This quote reflects the way in which Big Brother controls you by building new people, making them believe all of what you say. How does this compare to the actual year? There are no dairies anymore, know we tweet, blog, post something on Facebook, share something on Instagram. Now we use all of these open social medias to show what happens in our lives instead of maintining it privetely. The social media today is almost the same as Big Brother’s surveilance.
