This excerpt is giving a sturdy explanation on the topic of tyranny,and how it gave us a clarification on how tyranny is being stopped by overpowering the king.Critics also argued that the king or queen could create laws that applied to only some people and not others, and that unelected officials could make decisions that negatively affected citizens.The people were exhausted and started to realize that they wanted to overthrow the king themselves. Critics of the monarch read and discussed what tyranny meant in order to argue for their notion of the rule of law. Two of the most important people who wrote about tyranny were the ancient Greek philosophers, Plato and Aristotle. At the time of the American Revolution, critics of tyranny discussed and circulated many of Plato and Aristotle’s writings to explain their opposition to tyranny,and how Aristotle had a better view on how the government should ran, the founding fathers took a very good attraction towards the idea of having the rule of law that Aristotle
However as the book progresses we witness a growing hatred that Kevin has for the soldiers. This is expressed through emotive language: Let them walk in and take everything they want, everything our parents have worked for. This highlights how honestly Kevin speaks of the soldiers as he is annoyed and livid by the fact that people of a random country had suddenly decided to take over and ruin the possessions that belonged to him, his ancestors and his country in which they had put their blood, sweat and tears into building. His detestation is also been exposed by the tone and repetition interweaved within the following words : I hate them. This is used to emphasise on how Kevin feels about the soldiers ‘ I don’t know why you’re all being so understanding.
I strongly agree with Robert’s claim. McCarthyism resulted in Americans turning against each other because of politicians greed for power, paranoia, and the fear of communist infiltration. Clearly, Senator McCarthy’s greed for political power led to American citizens’ unrest. In Arthur Miller’s “The Crucible”, John Proctor dealt with the corruption of power in his town when Abigail Williams and many other girls accused those, who were innocent, of witchcraft. Similarly, americans were being blacklisted by McCarthy because they believed these people may have
The people cannot think far enough understand that their own government is inauspicious and destroying their own people. When two people realized their strengths and tried to rebel, the Handicapper General came in with a double-barreled shotgun and shot both them both, warning the rest of the people that if they follow in their path they will end up dead just like the two who realized they were worth so much more. By the way that Kurt Vonnegut describes the government forcing equality on the people and the irony of the people not actually meeting the equality, one can see the mockery of a communist
Upon the eve of the Revolution, the colonists had spent several years growing tiresome of British rule and preparing themselves to revolt. They had become united under the goal of attaining freedom and had developed their own personality, which was different from any found in Europe. Additionally, Britain treated the colonies with disrespect, thus increasing their desire to separate themselves. In the years leading up to the American Revolution, the colonists united through their desire for freedom and developed into their own people seeking freedom from an oppressive British rule. The main reason the colonists wanted to rebel was because Britain was treating them poorly and abusing them.
We will never stop until we win back what we deserve.” This obviously shows that Germans disliked the treaty when he describes the treaty “disgraceful” and they were really angry. Count Brockdorff-Rantzau, leader of the German delegation at Versailles said Article 231- the war-guilt clause - was: "a lie". Germany officially denied the war-guilt clause in 1927. He also stated “Those who sign this treaty, will sign the death sentence of many millions of German men, women and children.”-He is trying to portray that treaty of Versailles will make the German people suffer. The Germans also hated the loss of territory.
Big Brother, the Party, and the Thought Police establish incomprehensive oppression of their people where the people begin to reject their own individuality and intellectual reasoning to be more agreeable with the party’s ideals. Big Brother wields total power over the inhabitants of the totalitarian state. He monitors every citizen twenty-four hours a day which restricts any form of privacy. The Party is the upper class of the government who can make laws and are two percent of the population. Finally, the Thought Police are the secret police who uncover and punish thought crimes, unexpressed opposition or uncertainty in the ruling party.
The cultural clash of ideologies is not only horizontal. The conflict in America also reaches vertically, similarly to the situation in Bury the Dead. In clarification, the goals of the mass population is unaligned with the goals of, to use a Victorian concept, the ruling class. In Shaw’s Bury the Dead, the Generals are human representations of this ruling class. They display the apathy, ignorance, recklessness and equal hopelessness in the face of war that an anti-war writer would testify is fundamentally characteristic, at least from the view of the mass population.
More specifically, the ultimate ruler that goes as “Big Brother” stands as the embodiment of totalitarianism. The phrase “BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING YOU” gives the sense of fright to the citizens. Thus, the Party truly does not care for the well-being of the citizens as much as they enjoy the suffering that the people
This is showing the rest of society to just believe what the government tells them because the beating and abuse of the Ministry of Love is very harsh. Do to the government scarring the people of society through the abuse and torture in the Ministry of Love helps the totalitarian government keep their power over the
Winston Smith, the main character in the novel, faced many emotional challenges throughout the book. The problems that he encountered were primarily a result of his strong opposition toward the government of Oceania, which was more commonly known as “the Party”. The Party controlled every aspect of people’s lives, to the point where one wrong thought or physical action could cause brutal punishment. Although Winston was a minor member of the Party, he still secretly despised the way it had inflicted a totalitarian society upon him and the rest of the nation. All citizens were brainwashed to live in complete orthodoxy, and any act, no matter how trivial, that was displeasing to the Party was looked upon as a serious crime.
