I believe that fear plays a huge role regarding the Party. Big Brother has a way in which it manipulates the minds and actions of all citizens in Oceania. By making so many laws and rules, it terrifies everyone in Oceania to a point that they are so scared to get vaporized so they keep to themselves and try their best not to cause trouble. Since The Party has so much power over all the people by monitoring everyone and each action or thought they make, no one does anything in order to maintain their safety.

The feud that Gatsby has with Tom throughout the entire novel shows that regret can lead to one making rash decisions. In the book, Fitzgerald writes, “‘I know your wife,’ continued Gatsby almost aggressively,”(102). This quote comes whenever the two are talking at a party and Gatsby almost just blurts it out. This is the start to the two taking shots at each other in the novel trying to prove to the other that they love Daisy the most as Gatsby regrets having lost her once already.

But it is a whore's vengeance, and you must see it now.” (110) Analysis of Quote: John Proctor desperately tried to expose Abigail Williams as a fraud without leaking the news of their affair. When Abigail and the girls deny Mary Warren’s testimony in order to have Elizabeth hang, John Proctor leapt up at Abigail and told the court, “She thinks to dance with me on my wife’s grave!” (110). He continued to ridicule Abigail by accusing her actions of being a whore’s vengeance.
Some evidence to support this argument would be this quote. " Romeo 's friends, who wish to see him lifted above his melancholy, urge him to stop philosophizing about his lost love and to seek another young lady as a new object of his affections." (Dupler 1). This quote is basically describing what is going on before Lord Capulet 's party starts. Essentially what is going on during this time is that Mercutio and Benvolio are forcing Romeo to go to a party so he can invest his time in a new girl instead of moping about Rosaline, who is the girl Romeo loved before.

For example, Winston strongly believes in the Brotherhood, but Julia believes the Party invented it and it is not real. Even though she claims to hate the Party, she never critiques it. The only way she defies the Party is by having sex. Winston even scolds her by saying, “you’re only a rebel from the waist downwards”(156). When Winston gets invited to O’Brien’s home, Julia goes with him.
Faber live in fear of getting his house burnt down and the people that read books become so guilty, they govern themselves. Faber did this to himself too, “That was all there was to it, really. An hour of monologue, a poem, a comment, and then without even acknowledging the fact that Montag was a fireman, Faber with a certain trembling, wrote his address on a slip of paper. ’ For your file,’ he said, ‘in case you decide to be angry with me. ’"(Bradbury, page 71).
