328 Words2 Pages
George Orwell based his book, 1984, based off of the Soviet Union’s rule. Starting from the strong totalitarian rule, all the way to the lack of freedom. Orwell also mimicked a “utopian” society with complete equality, but it turns out to be the opposite. The government of Oceania also known as the Party deprived their citizens of their ability to express themselves and show true emotion, took away their basic human rights and gave them no freedom or individuality. In 1984, George Orwell displays a totalitarian government and proves that a society that is state-driven is dehumanizing and gives their citizens a negative way of life. From the beginning to the end of the book, expression, emotion and use of language are controlled by the Party.
