Whenever there is political corruption, power and control are involved. Although there are a few similarities between Castro’s dictatorship and Big Brother’s totalitarian from 1984, not many parallels can be seen. As someone who controls Oceania, Big Brother is known to be very powerful. He has the ability to manipulate his party members into thinking that he is superior.
The novel 1984, by George Orwell, presented an eerily realistic society brainwashed and controlled by their government. The main character, Winston Smith, was not easily manipulated, and documented his rebellious thoughts in a journal. He also rebelled physically, and was eventually caught. He was taken to the Ministry of Love to be tortured, and submitted to the control of the government. Throughout the novel, Orwell accurately depicted many aspects of Nazi Germany in the fictional nation of Oceania.
When positivity and acceptance is a part of this world, a feeling of slight happiness and calmness. Acceptance creates a type of satisfactory feeling makes you proud and confident within yourself. This boosts the emotions to a happier state causing someone to either recover from stressful situations, communicating or just having a better all moods, especially when it comes to love. However, fortunate cannot exist without the unfortunate. For instance love and enmity will always be complete opposites.
The party 's tactics of mind control has resulted in the party having absolute control over the human mind. The party has oppressed its people by brainwashing, taking away individuality, attempting to alter the past, and limiting privacy as well as rights. Although the party has done everything in their power to limit the risks of being overthrown, I believe that human emotions, and instincts can never be oppressed completely. There will always be those who resist the party. As long as humans can feel love, compassion, lust, sadness, hatred, anger, happiness, and most importantly hope, the party will eventually fall.
1) “In the end the Party would announce that two and two made five, and you would have to believe it. It was inevitable that they should make that claim sooner or later: the logic of their position demanded it. Not merely the validity of experience, but the very existence of external reality was tacitly denied by their philosophy” This is at the time when Winston was looking at marvels as well as a children’s history book at the Party’s control of the mind. This quote explains one of the main themes of the story;manipulation.
Donald Trump Should Be Impeached Donald Trump is the 45th president of the United States however is not known to be a not a great president. Trump has said many ignorant and racist remarks, and has no regrets for anyone. Donald has not only offended America, but has offended various countries as well. Trump has been considered the worst president in history, therefore he should be impeached. (Thesis) Donald Trump has been called out for his ridiculous statements, overconfidence and prejudice beliefs.
When Winston states, “The proles are human beings. We are not human,” he means that while the proles experience the human condition on a genuine level, members of the Party reside on mechanical action and reactions, for the Party conditions its own into becoming hollowed-out, babbling puppets with a stark lacking of profound sensibilities and loyalties. To be fully human, I believe a person must relinquish the state of being all for himself and allow himself to integrate his emotions and perception with that of other people and the natural world, as well as his own spirituality. The ability to value sentiment and emphasize with the plights of others, alongside the ability to derive humor, beauty, and his own conclusions from all of life’s moment
Applying D. E. Eichholz’s interpretation of Virgil’s Aeneid to George Orwell’s 1984 would be difficult in the sense that Virgil’s language seems to imply a more significant meaning. George Orwell’s style, throughout 1984, is a collection of manipulation and small amounts of very meaningful symbols. Eichholz argues that there are passages that present varieties of interpretations throughout The Aeneid. “War is Peace Freedom is Slavery and Ignorance is Strength” (Orwell, pg. 6). This slogan is the most popular reference from 1984 and acts as the most meaningful symbolism in the novel.
The electronic devices that society carries in this modern age have a bigger purpose than communicating with others. This society continues to advance in technology through phones, computers, televisions, cameras, and more— only to bring the world closer to Oceania, a society where a totalitarian government watches and listens to everyone’s moves in order to control their minds and actions. For instance, there are thought police who monitor people of Oceania to catch thought crime, which means having thoughts or plans that are considered rebellious against the government. In the novel, 1984, George Orwell discusses Big Brother’s capabilities of “all seeing,” also known as “panopticon” (Maass, Rajagopalan, 14). Despite this, it was never clarified whether Big Brother is a real person or a creation of the Party— similar to ‘Uncle Sam.”
A state, country, or world can be either a dystopian or utopian society. One thing that a person desires the most is the power over people or objects. However, today it will be having power over people. A dystopian society is a dehumanizing and a manipulation of a society. A utopian society is exact opposite- it describes a society that is perfect and peaceful.
