Big Brother uses technology to spy on them in particular situations throughout the day. As in our regular life style being observed by cameras is fairly common. Every store has cameras that are mainly for safety, but yet we are not fully safe. Those cameras could be used to spy and kidnap people. The telescreens are more than just cameras explained by Winston, He explains how, “ ... your breathing could be control … but you could not controlled the beating of your heart, and the telescreen was quite delicate enough to pick it up” (Orwell, page 79).
An article written in the year 1984 published in the New York Times stated that George Orwell 's "1984" was "A simple warning to mankind". George Orwell wrote "1984" to warn mankind about governments controlling the media and by controlling the media controlling one 's perception of reality. I believe that the tools of media control and the control of one 's perception of reality can be used in present times today. Media control is a form of censorship that being on any kind or source of media, books, magazines, newspapers, or television. Control of one 's perception of reality is when someone or something controls how a person perceives reality meaning if one were to have control over ones perceptions of reality then they
Surveillance is used as the eye over the population. In 1984 it is Big Brother who sees and hears every step you take, while in America it is the National Security Agency (NSA). By governing the people with lies and limitations, a government can do as it pleases. If the people do not know what is right and wrong, they can easily be fooled. The first point is doublethink, in 1984 the party uses the idea of continuous war as an act of doublethink.

In a society controlled by fear and ignorance, citizens believe everything the government tells them because they do not know how to think. Many novels have a theme of government manipulation, especially in dystopian novels such as George Orwell’s 1984. In the novel, leaders clearly skew the information that they give to the public in order for them to be too ignorant to speak out. In 1984, the first sentence is especially unnerving because the government changes history and the symbols behind the number thirteen and the season of spring. The leaders of the society changed the basic principle of time and other basic truths in order to keep their power.
The society in George Orwell’s 1984 serves as a grave reminder of what happens when such destruction occurs. The people are unable to think for themselves, have no idea what is actually going on, and will believe anything the government tells them. One must always be aware of what is happening and not succumb to government nonsense, if not, then perhaps, one day, all of humanity will say that two plus two equals
Big Brother Is Watching In George Orwell 's classic dystopian novel “Nineteen Eighty-Four”, the world is in a state of unending war between three superstates, and the story is set in one of them, a totalitarian society built on ubiquitous mass surveillance, official deceit, manipulation of documented history, abolition of independent thinking and persecution of individualism.

The whole purpose of this event to have the capacity to share a common nemesis with the people living in the 1984 society controlled by a party system and a figure labeled as Big Brother. Within the society of George Orwell’s book, the people are flashed with eerie images and subliminal messages of the common nemesis whom they do not know how or why they feel repulsion towards them as the quote states,“The horrible thing about the Two Minutes Hate was not that one was obliged to act a part, but, on the contrary, that it was impossible to avoid joining in.”(page 14) It is a form of propaganda that is used to influence the ideals of the people and their behavior. Nevertheless, most
The novel 1984 makes us ruminate our society and the technology given to us today by making us second guess the power that the government can have over us. Who is behind the camera? Winston Smith, the main character in the novel has lost all his freedom to the totalitarian “Big Brother.” Winston Smith lives in a world of duplicity where everyone 's being watched at every waking moment, this terrifies Winston because he is not able to think or speak wrong opinions without having the Thought Police take him away.
