Winston and Julia obligate secret sexual undertakings without permission of the Party: “Winston’s crimes against the Party escalate in intention and scope. He starts an illicit affair with Julia, a dark-haired woman who works in the Fiction Department at the Ministry of Truth. These two heroes bring different motivations to their rebellious sexual relationship” (“Heroism” McLaughlin 1). This passage aids the subject matter because any form of sexual relationship is significantly incorrect in the eyes of the Party. Conceiving children is the key purpose of intercourse according to the Party, but Winston and Julia utilize sex as a rebellion against the Party’s guidelines.
Eventually, Winston and Julia go to O’Brien to confess they are rebels and hope that he is a member of the Brotherhood like they thought.

How Does 1984 Conform to, or Deviate From, the Conventions of Dystopia, and For What Purpose? 1984 was written by George Orwell in 1948 and it is a dystopian novel. The novel takes place in a futuristic time period in a section of the world called “Oceania”. Oceania is led by the Party, whose leader is Big Brother, and they control everything that happens in Oceania. The Party and Big Brother are constantly watching their citizens through telescreens, which are large screens that are placed throughout Oceania like modern day surveillance cameras.
Orwell immediately introduces his audience to the “Two Minutes of Hate”, The Party’s manifestation of these tactics. In the novel, Winston describes the event as “A hideous ecstasy of fear and vindictiveness, a desire to kill, to torture, to smash faces in with a sledge hammer” (15). The “Two Minutes of Hate” is specifically designed to have its viewers associate their murderous rage with Emmanuel Goldstein, a party defector and scapegoat for every, single problem that besieges the nation-state. The source of this rage is sexual privation or the citizens’ repressed sexual desires.Winston gives his rebellious promiscuous love interest, Julia’s explanation, “Sexual privation induced hysteria, which was desirable because it could be transformed into war fever and leader worship” (Orwell 126). The party uses the repressed sexual desires of its citizens and funnels it into a nationalistic fervor.

The Party has brainwashed their citizens to believe that they should not feel anything except hate, do anything except for their jobs, and support Big Brother. Big Brother is teaching the small rebels to go against the one thing they should love the most, their parents, and go with Big Brother. In Wall-E they are only communicating through technology, and they only teach the kids the alphabet by ads! The advantages and development of technology are facilitating the government control their citizens.

Macbeth sends some men to kill Macduff's family because Lennox tells Macbeth that “`Tis two or three, my lord, that bring you word Macduff is fled to England” (4.1.141). Macduff fleds to England to seek for help because Macbeth is basically destroying Scotland and killing everybody. He becomes once again stubborn and seeks for more information from the witches and so they tell him three prophecies and he becomes over confident. Macbeth is now in search for more information and he is received that information. The second apparition consist of being “Be bloody, bold, and resolute; laugh to scorn/The power of man, none of woman born/Shall harm Macbeth.”(4.1.79-81).
