Authority and Power 1984 explores power through, manipulation of language and children. The fact the party has the ability through propaganda to influence the children to the point they are more loyal to Big Brother than their own parents shows the power of the party’s propaganda. The manipulation of language by Ingsoc and BB also displays the party’s power. They seek to completely eradicate the people’s ability to even think against the party, making ‘thoughtcrime’ impossible all together. Syme states “the revolution will be complete when the language is perfect” This statement is ironic evidence of big brothers plan of total power and control over the people.
The Party ensures absolute loyalty to Big Brother by managing the family dynamics in Oceania. They accomplish this through the elimination of attachment, the never ending feeling of sexual frustration and by turning children against their parents. These methods of achieving control can be compared and analyzed to real life situations. For example, in North Korea, it would be blasphemy if the citizens were not loyal to the eternal leader Kim Il-Sung. Through the loyalty of the people, totalitarian regimes can and will exercise the full extent of their power through psychological manipulation as proven by history.
The Nazis conquered countries by making people believe in what the Nazis believed in. Hitler had his Nazis attack their enemies with full power during the Great Depression. Echelons of Nazis tanks were put into battle, conquering countries. He did this during the Great Depression because with all of his enemies weak, it would be easier to eliminate/kill them. “Adolf Hitler demonstrated his political skill in taking advantage of the opportunity provided by the depression.

Complete government control and government spying is a fear that has been among people ever since technology has begun to advance. Totalitarian governments started to take shape in the 1930’s when there were obvious parallels between Hitler and Stalin (Gleason 150). In the 1940 's, George Orwell was one of those people in fear of rising totalitarian police states. Orwell wrote 1984 with the purpose of hoping to warn people of the dangers of the totalitarian form of government. Orwell tells the story through the life of Winston Smith and the daily oppression he goes through living in this form of government.
I would have to agree with Timasheff’s idea wholeheartedly being that Stalin created a dicatorship in which he held all the power and repressed workers because he believed it was necessary for the "good of the state". He also reinforced and revised his early work, Foundations of Leninism (1924) to create a revamped view of Leninism that would support his twisted policy which painted a pleasant picture of collectivism and industrialism, which is reality was the exact opposite. Stalin also believed that the class struggle intensified after the revolution, which is shown in The Great Purge through how the Communist Party (mostly Stalin) sought out enemies and dissenters in its own ranks as well as in society and had them executed/exiled/sent to

This shows how people react and behave to an authority figure and shows that the forming of the Nazi organization in world war two could have happened to any country. What happened to Germans by Adolf Hitler during that time is basically a large and extreme scale of what Milgram was doing to these test subjects during his experiment. Knowing that Americans were just as susceptible to becoming Nazi 's as much as Germans were, gives us all more of an understanding towards why everyone followed Hitler and helps us empathize with them instead of judging them. Most of the time deception is justified with the results that are made with the experiment.

Government control has been viewed many times in history, like Hitler and Stalin, and as far back as to the Rome Empire and Julius Caesar. But in Brave New World the government that controls the world has such a tight grit on society, it almost seems nothing can break it. The World State controls everything and all because of their conditioning at birth, making the grip on a human unbreakable. The director tells a class of students about the conditioning process,“We condition the masses to hate the country,” concluded the Director. “But simultaneously we condition them to love all country sports.
