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.

In the way they report news on serial killers , it promotes fear and anxiety to their viewers. Movies even have more effect than we realize as well .

The government has built these watchdogs that watch everyone’s every move to see if they are breaking the society’s laws. Montag is really disturbed because he is a different person and he is scared that the dog is suspicious of him. The dog is very good at hunting down and killing, which is a huge example of a dystopian society that has no privacy. Another example in Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 would be when the captain says "Come
The privacy violations Americans experience today are similar to the privacy violations in 1984 because of surveillance, tracking, and the technology. Nineteen-eighty four uses surveillance to keep an eye on the people of Oceania at all times. For example, Orwell writes “any sound that Winston made, above the level of a low whisper, could be picked up by the telescreen… he could be seen as well as heard” (Orwell, pg. 3). This shows that the people of Oceania don’t get to have a private life because of telescreens and also other technology that is being used to invade in people’s lives.

Nowadays, many people in the United States spend too much time discussing the balance between security and liberty. They criticize the government and condemn the security measures. However, they don't want to admit that many terrorist attacks were prevented by wiretapping, monitoring the internet, and so on. Professor Levinson states that it is “spying”. I would call it “a desire to defend the people, to protect their lives and health from the terrorist
Power razes all of its enemies to the ground, and its enemies are ignorant of its presence.Power negatively affects others by turning someone with power on their allies, making the owner paranoid, and diminishing common sense.In Antigone, King Creon turned on his own niece in order to preserve his self-serving law. Power turns the holder onto their allies. Creon created fear in the hearts of his own sentries who selflessly worked hours keeping him safe. After gambling for the right to deliver the news, a lone sentry brazenly travels to tell Creon the news and after being berated says, “you have seen the last of me here…” and briskly walks off (scene I lines 160-163). Creon has disrupted the feeling of trust by misplacing fear in the hearts of the sentry because he wanted his edict to be all-powerful.
There’s a question Americans constantly ask themselves, is the government trustable? Many citizens would answer no because they believe that the government is constantly watching them. The privacy of American citizens is being violated by the GPS trackers in our phones that the government can see and monitor, how the government listens to our calls and how they store all our information. In the novel, 1984 by George Orwell, Winston explains how Big Brother is constantly watching them. According to 1984, “...so as long as he remained within the field of vision which the metal plaque commanded, he could be seen as well as heard” (Orwell, pg.3).
