386 Words2 Pages
In Orwell’s novel, 1984, he illustrates the commotion going on during the Hate Week. Big Brother wired the minds of people from Oceania to control their thoughts. In mid-sentence, the speaker switched the names around so that instead of being at war with Eurasia, Oceania was at war with Eastasia and the listeners did not notice the sudden change, showing how their minds are controlled. In this writing, Orwell emphasizes how corrupted the government is in some scenes during the Hate Week. Orwell acknowledges Hate week as being very rowdy, with citizens shouting, kicking, or with pure uproar coming from them, all caused by the same hatred towards Eurasia. Willing to kill any Eurasian soldiers and already having them hanged in public squares.
