Various methods of brainwashing distract individuals from the oppressive nature of authoritative figures, similar to communist and fascist establishments prevalent within Eastern Europe. In addition, administering fear in the minds of citizens induces increased loyalty and trust for oppressive governments, which societies of Orwell’s time epitomized through mass murder. The destruction of the individual, along with the concepts of free thinking, creativity, and emotion, ultimately occur as a result of the absolute power held over citizens, which Orwell aspired to avoid in writing 1984. The impact of Orwell’s novel still resonates with readers presently, as the future remains uncertain and the society extensively detailed in 1984 mirrors aspects of one’s life today. Perhaps such an abhorrent anti-utopia did not exist in the year 1984, but the possibility of ultimate totalitarianism never ceases to

Throughout the novel, the Great Gatsby, Fitzgerald presents Tom Buchanan as a very controlling person who believes he is entitled to many things because of his wealth. Similar to the quote, Tom’s constant need for wealth and power leads to a need and want for everything in sight. If a reader were to read this book through the Marxist lens, they would see an obvious struggle between the powerful and powerless and how that directly coincides with how much money the person with power has. The main character with power and wealth in the novel is Tom Buchanan, and he uses his control to gain power over others.

This example explains the power of the walls and how technology affects the future. Television in Fahrenheit 451 became an obsessive and fascinating experience for everyone, especially Mildred and her friends who obsess over the white cartoon clowns. In actuality the walls symbolize the government brainwashing society. The government uses the walls to hide the truth on the importance of books. Novels contain information about the past and people form different opinions and thoughts from the novels.
It is their biggest adversary, sexual lust that must constantly be tamed because they know that“ Sexual deprivation induced hysteria, which was desirable because it could be transformed into war - fever and leader worship” (139). Winston and Julia by committing the greatest act of rebellion against Big Brother break the frames of individualism and establish the bond that ultimately leads to their undoing. Yet their relationship is not based upon love but the succumbing to a banned human instinct. This act is what propels them in finding a shared sanctuary above the junk shop in the poles neighbourhood, because “The room was a world, a pocket of the past where extinct animals could walk”(157). The only ones that have not renounced to those emotions or that prehistoric behaviour are the proles, the outcasts of Oceania.“ The proles had stayed human.
George Orwell’s 1984 expresses the great power words hold and the impact that double meanings and limited vocabulary can have on oppressing a society. Words hold immense power, both in modern society and in Orwell’s dystopian future. Humans are surrounded by words, from the conversations they have, to the books and ads they read, and even in their everyday thoughts; the people portrayed in 1984 are no different. Posters loom over the citizens with the warning “Big Brother is Watching You” (Orwell 2) as an everyday reminder of their great leader. Speaker systems and telescreens play announcements to the masses with the, mostly untrue, accomplishments of The Party to keep morale up.

At the end when Bing stands up on the stage to give a heart-breaking speech, he ends up making a controversial decision. It can be related to hive mentality.

Members chime in, options are weighed, and eventually a single proposal for action is approved by consensus. The committee, of course, is the densely knit society of neurons in your head.
Indeed, Haspeslagh and Jemison (1991) state that value and synergies are created during the integration phase, but when it is possible to create synergies and value it is very likely that value destruction happens during the integration phase as well. Post-merger integration is the integration required after two separate entities come together to form a new organization (Epstein, 2004). In order to achieve the expected synergies, the merging companies have to integrate effectively, hence the integration phase is responsible for the merger success or failure (Haspeslagh & Jemison, 1991). According to Birkinshaw et al. (2000), the integration challenge is twofold, as it involves the two parallel processes of task integration and sociocultural integration.
