The society in George Orwell’s 1984 serves as a grave reminder of what happens when such destruction occurs. The people are unable to think for themselves, have no idea what is actually going on, and will believe anything the government tells them. One must always be aware of what is happening and not succumb to government nonsense, if not, then perhaps, one day, all of humanity will say that two plus two equals

Ishiguro shapes the world in which his characters are feared and thus, marginalized from the human society while, society itself, rejects the idea of them existing, twisting their moral compass and stripping the clones from basic rights; allowing them to live in exclusion from their surroundings for the purpose of living for someone
The use of God as a shield works on believers, but not on nonbelievers. The question “why bad things happening to good people” still cannot be answered for the nonbelievers, a common critique of religion itself. Regardless of the problem of theodicy, however, religion has worked really well to create and maintain the reality.

Frequently, Winston questioned the motives of the government and often engaged in thoughtcrime (thoughts that oppose the ruling party). Winston could recognize that the people do not think for themselves, instead they simply believed and thought what Big Brother told them to. “Prodded by his natural need for reflection and critical analysis, Winston finds it hard not to make use of his inborn talents. He starts questioning the wisdom of Big Brother and moves hopefully toward his own liberation” (Nytimes.com). Due to his personality and own freedom of thought, he had the unique ability to recognize the injustice and lack of freedom around him.

Avatar Thesis In the movie Avatar the main theme of it was about the military going in and disrupting the land of the native Omaticaya people because they found precious unobtanium which was extremely rare and expensive. They values the money they would get from the unobtanium rather the lives of the Na’vi. They sent in scientist in to befriend the Omaticaya people and give them schools, roads, and education, but they wanted to be left alone. Also the scientist were sent in to essentially move the Omaticaya people so that they could “peacefully” tear down all of their civilization if they dint comply with the military people and retrieve this unobtanium they so badly needed because of the worth of it.
Montag’s search for justice is him looking for knowledge that the government is trying to destroy and replace with simpler forms of entertainment such as TV. "’ So now do you see why books are hated and feared? They show the pores in the face of life. The comfortable people want only wax moon faces, poreless, hairless, expressionless (85).’ " People have gotten so politically correct that they would rather get rid of all different ideas than learn to understand and accept them.
Living as a “normal” citizen of his time, and the growing feelings of uneasiness this brought allowed him to realize the wrongs of his society’s ways and begin to seek life anew. Throughout his search, Montag also comes to know the importance of self-understanding, an essential element to a truly fulfilled life. Although it is common practice for individuals to go through life under the false conviction that “ignorance is bliss,” Ray Bradbury reveals that this notion is far from reality.

The irony in Room 101 lies in the fact that the Party wants everyone to conform to society. They want everyone to worship Big Brother, hate Emmanuel Goldstein, believe in doublethink, and eventually they want everyone to only speak in Newspeak. Newspeak limits the ideas you can express and therefore limits the thoughts you can have. This essentially gives the Party mind control and perfect submissive citizens with no individuality. But, in Room 101 it uses your own individual fears against you.
