During Two Minutes Hate, there is a huge screen displaying pictures of Goldstein that the members scream at and express their hatred for him. The worst part of Two Minutes Hate was that no one was obligated to actually take part in it, but it was almost impossible to avoid joining in. Within thirty seconds “a desire to kill, to torture, to smash” (16) overwhelmed and flowed through the entire group of people. Orwell explained that the rage that Winston and the people felt was an abstract, undirected emotion. Big brother used the propaganda of Two Minutes Hate to make the people of Oceania believe that it was wrong to go against Big Brother and they should hate anyone who does.
This is exhibited as the behaviors of all the citizens are monitored, and taken into account. If anyone acts in rebellion of the Party or Big Brother, they are taken into Room 101 (basement torture chamber in the Ministry of Love), where they are tortured until they submit to Big Brother and comply with the rules and regulations of the Party. The citizens are continuously reminded of the control over reality the Party has, primarily by the omnipresent signs reading “BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING YOU,” (3) implementing a sense of reverence and fear, shown through the very apparent government propaganda. Authorities are perpetually shown scrutinizing the civilians by watching their every move, demonstrated by the telescreens feeding constant
Big Brother is the Government in this book who has complete control of everyone. Big Brother in the book is taking people and manipulating them to their advantage. The first example of the complete power Big brother has is that they want to show the people that they are being watched at all times and any moment. For example they want to endorse to the people that they have no type of freedom. On page 1 “On each landing, opposite the lift shaft, the poster with the enormous face gazed from the wall.
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.
Even though Nineteen Eighty-four and One Flew Over The Cuckoo 's Nest differ in their dystopian society, the two novels carry out their rules in a similar fashion. In the novel Nineteen Eighty-four by George Orwell a dysopian society controlled by a totitalitarianism regime called the Big Brother monitors every aspect of the citizens which reside in Oceania. Below Big Brother are the inner party who limits the freedom of speech, communication, personal belief and individuality and controlls thought, action and speech in various ways. Newspeak is a language the inner party implemented by means of controlling the citizens to prevent them from obtaining individual thought. Newspeak are words and sentenences that are being shortened and some are excluded and thus is a more advanced way of communicating according to the inner party.
John Tyler did great with his domestic and foreign affairs despite him being and forcing himself to be the first Vise President to become an President. He struggled to do many things with his obnoxious administration going against him every day. Tyler 's domestic affairs along with his greatest success was when he fought Congressional attempts at usurpation to establish the precedent that a Vice President becomes a full president with all a president’s powers on the death of the incumbent President. His greatest failure was being a slave owner and serving in the Confederate States Congress during the Civil War. Tyler 's major foreign policy achievement was the Webster-Ashburton Treaty with Great Britain.
Powerful Governments A government is to be in charge of the economic affairs, policy, and actions of a country. There are various types of governments, with laws and restrictions that citizens are to follow. These laws and restrictions can easily be taken to extremes as portrayed in George Orwell’s 1984. 1984 follows a man named Winston Smith who resides in Oceania, a country ran by a totalitarian government called INGSOC. The government controls almost every aspect of peoples’ lives and going against the government results in elimination or torture.
In Kurt Vonnegut’s short story, “Harrison Bergeron”, Vonnegut uses Harrison’s facial handicaps to symbolize the flaws of complete equality that are hidden from society. Vonnegut’s first use of handicaps to symbolize the government’s attempt to secure their power is when the news anchor shows a picture of Harrison in his handicaps. Based on the image shown on the television, “he wore ... spectacles with thick wavy lenses. (F) The spectacles were intended to make him not only half blind, but to give him whanging headaches” (4). This quotation exhibits the unbelievable amount of control that the government is able to dictate over the people.
