A way that they used lies is when O’Brien and Mr.Charrington betrayed Winston and Julia. "Shortly after waking up from a long nap, Winston and Julia hear a voice from a hidden telescreen which suddenly commands them to stand in the middle of the room. Mr. Charrington enters with a crew of stormtroopers who beat Winston and Julia, then hurry them separately away" (Orwell 235-236). This is the first act of betrayal that is shown in the novel 1984. Another way that the party used lying as a way to control the citizens is by the ministry of truth.

The film Boyz N the Hood is a story about life in South Central Los Angeles. The film was wrote and directed by John Singleton in 1991. I chose this movie because of its relevance to the course and how it reflects pop culture in that time period. The opening line in the movie “one out of every twenty-one Black American males will be murdered in their lifetime” really catches the audience attention. This movie goes into detail and shows the life of three young males living in the hood of Los Angeles battling a life surrounded by drugs, violence, and questions of race.
The checkered past and symbolism of the Overlook Hotel in Stephen King’s novel ,The Shining, reflects the characters’ pasts and influences their actions in order to show the building as more of an antagonist (of sorts) than a setting. One example of support for the claim is when Jack Torrence is having a dream after discovering the blood and bits in the Presidential suite from a gang fight years prior, where he believes that he is killing an intruder of the hotel with a mallet, but as he threw the mallet down, “the face below him was not of the intruder but of Danny’s. It was the face of his son. Then the mallet crashed home, closing his eyes forever. Suddenly Jack awoke standing over Danny’s bed, his fists clenched tightly.” (King 402).
With the advancement of surveillance technology, many citizens feel that their privacy rights have been violated due to homeland security and the threat of terrorism. Throughout history our government has implemented domestic and international surveillance as a way to safeguard our society from other countries. Now the question that seems to arise within our society is if the government is infringing on our civil liberties? Or is this indeed protecting our nation from imminent danger? The balance between national security and the rights of American citizens was forged in 1791 with The Fourth Amendment.
The government brainwashes their citizens to get them to be unquestioningly loyal to the party. The issue of brainwashing stands out as one of the most important topics in this book as well as one that is very relevant to today. Orwell communicates through his book that brainwashing is pervasive and destructive to our sense of reality and logic as human beings, and that it has a negative impact on the citizens subjected to it. Orwell expresses this belief especially at the end when Winston is in the ministry of love. We get to see the party’s thoughts in full detail as O’Brien explains everything to Winston and simultaneously brainwashes him.

Racial Profiling sends the message that people are being “judged by the color of their skin and harms the criminal justice system by eviscerating the trust that is necessary if law enforcement is to effectively protect our communities.”(Fact Sheet) Racial Profiling addresses people directly based off of the color of their skin. This is an unethical action, this because it is unfair, injustice, shows inequality and causes corruption due to that. Racial profiling is based off of the assumption that “...any particular individual of one race or ethnicity is more likely to engage in misconduct than any particular individual of other races or ethnicities.”(Fact Sheet). Racial Profiling separates people by color, race or ethnicity, like discrimination. Within this discrimination, they are basically say that one kind is more likely to do one thing then another.
In spying on its citizens America would be enabling the abuse of citizens through controlling their actions exploiting their lives. A way this could be observed is by bugging phones to listen in on conversations. “We must not ignore the costs to liberty and privacy of intercepting phone calls and other electronic communications”, (Posner 2). Although public safety is a concern, the greater threat comes from denying citizens their rights and protecting them from tyrannical leaders. First citizens will lose their independence, then they will be stripped of their freedom by restraining their actions.

Government Surveillance violates our Bill of Right The Fourth Amendment protects the people from unreasonable searches from the police or any other government official. I agree with Christopher Soghoian, technology can in fact be a civil rights issue due to government surveillance. Invading our civil rights by government officials has been attempted more than once before. The loss of personal privacy can have a psychological impact on citizens and feel that they are controlled by the government. Although invading continues government finds this useful to protect the American people.
