In the novel 1984, the population is forced to watch a video of the opposition and express their hatred for “Two Minutes Hate”. As shown in the past during WWII and even in the US election this year, propaganda and hatred is often used unify a group of people.
The government and its effect on society is always a controversial and frequently discussed topic amongst today’s people. Whether it is how politicians swindle peoples’ money or the various ways that the government abuses its power, people always have criticism for what they believe to be flawed. In the novel 1984 by George Orwell, the author conveys his belief that limiting the privacy of the individual is the government’s ultimate means of controlling its citizens through the wall mounted devices called telescreens as well as the brutal, and ever present though police.

The way someone sees another may reflect upon themself more than anything; showing the hidden through judgements of peers. One’s own dilemmas within their lives can be shadowed by misguided hatred for others, thus creating unwanted problems for all parties involved. This can be seen in real life as well as in novels, but specifically between Abigail Williams and Elizabeth Proctor. In the play titled “The Crucible,” Abigail and Elizabeth illustrate that contrasting personalities can reveal who a person truly is; essentially removing the mask of perception. Abigail’s perception of herself and those around her fuels her power hungry state that ruins many people’s lives.

Miller uses the analogy “since the enemy is an idea whose proponents are not in uniform but are disguised as ordinary citizens”.
A society can greatly affect a person from expressing themself. Everyone, in different ways can contrast with one another. From their actions, their ideas and to how they speak, people can foil one another. Therefore in stories, these people are referred to foil characters.

Alienation is a feeling of emotional isolation or exclusion from others and can be in the form of physical and mental and it is most often a combination of these forms.

As the book 1984 describes it, a society based on hate is a society based on power and fear. If one has the power, he or she can institute fear through forced cruelty and suffering. In 1984, the Party was able to use its power to take away happiness, love, and friendship and leave behind, fear, hatred, and cruelty. However, in a realistic world this type of society can never be able to exist for a decent amount of time. The society would either end up destroying itself, or being destroyed by others.
The people in George Orwell’s 1984 are dehumanized using many ways by the inner party. They have a hard life because they don’t know simple everyday things that we take for granted.

The levels of difficulty on each person; stability/instability could cast some intersections (race/class/religion) as unstable.
