The Patriot Act is justified tremendously by 9/11 because it has helped track down terrorists, it has given more freedom for communication throughout the government branches, and it has enhanced citizens’ liberties. For starters, the Patriot Act has helped to find terrorists and high stake criminals by using investigative tools to assist law enforcement officials. Nevertheless, this act has helped intercept a money courier, known as Florez-Gomez, who stole over “$1.3 million per month for the Colombian leftist rebel group ‘FARC’” (Ridge). As stated by the same article, “Thanks to Special Agent Norman Bright, an alert ICE agent who used his knowledge of key new elements of the Patriot Act in the investigation and interrogation, Florez-Gomez got arrested and charged with being an unlicensed money transmitter” (Ridge).

By looking deeper into the novel and analyzing specific details Orwell included it can be seen how Orwell used the setting of the story, the city itself as well as the workplace of Winston as a few examples, and also the characters themselves, such as the Parsons, to get readers to see the message he was trying to warn of. The idea of conformity was enforced throughout the story, as shown above, in the ways that all citizens are made to essentially be the same as all others around them, with deadly consequences if they refuse. The theme of dehumanization is also deeply explored as all personal feelings and emotions are outlawed by the Party in an attempt to create people who all are the same. As well the setting is used to present the theme of the dangers of totalitarianism as Winston’s job is to change and “fix” any document that is critical in anyway of the government or expresses free speech. This use of literary devices effectively delivers the theme Orwell was trying to
Surveillance is used as the eye over the population. In 1984 it is Big Brother who sees and hears every step you take, while in America it is the National Security Agency (NSA). By governing the people with lies and limitations, a government can do as it pleases. If the people do not know what is right and wrong, they can easily be fooled. The first point is doublethink, in 1984 the party uses the idea of continuous war as an act of doublethink.

His daughter, an honor student, and your “perfect citizen” type character, is Caroline Wakefield played by Erika Christensen.
The technology has been advanced and transformed which has changed the concept of privacy in today’s world. As far as our thinking capacity allows us, we consider privacy as protecting our life and personal information from government although such attempts are made by them to keep an eye and to control our behavior. The privacy issue has spread to such an extent that can clearly be observed by the given statement of Edward Snowden few months ago. He stated about his access to such documents about the revelation of various U.S and British programs through using internet, web, television and such mediums that completely destroys our privacy. Edward claimed about the revelation of the American’s government compelling Verizon mobile phone and programs like ‘Prism’ through which National Security Agency-NSA are able to get direct access to information and phone records of millions of Americans through internet and websites like Google, Apple, Facebook etc which is completely against ethics and ultimately ensures no privacy to the phone and computer or web users.

In Orwell‚Äôs novel, the character Winston struggles with a moral dilemma as he works his government job changing historical documents, and changing the past. In today‚Äôs world where ‚Äúfake news‚Äù runs rampant and every tweet from the the President of the United States needs to be fact-checked, manipulation of the past seems eerily familiar. In the words of Winston, ‚Äúwhen memory failed and written records were falsified...the claim of the [government] to have improved the conditions of human life had...to be accepted‚Äù (Orwell 93). With the claim that internet surveillance will improve society, whether through prevention of terrorism or hate speech, who is to say that this is not just an Orwellian manipulation of information to create the illusion of good? In reality, by monitoring the activities of people online, companies such as Facebook, Google, and Twitter are able to find what makes their sites addicting, and then correlate those factors with advertisements, and news releases.
