What if one were to tell state that two plus two equals five or that war is peace? One would probably say that the speaker is wrong or completely crazy. This is the case in the world of George Orwell’s novel, 1984, here these statements are the complete truth. In 1984, Orwell presents his readers with a dystopian world that is under the tyrannical control of Big Brother and the Inner Party. The Party brainwashes the citizens of this society by completely changing the history of the world to show themselves as the greatest thing in the world.
Winston feels ambushed by the regulations that have been enforced by the party through their assets being the thought police and technology which would be referring to the telescreens both of these tools used to keep the people under surveillance in conclusion Winston doesn’t follow the parties ways and he attends hate week which is a session that happens once a week where people express their feelings towards the party, towards big brother. This phrase was spoken by Winston showing the audience enforced by orwell his hate for the corruption “DOWN WITH BIG BROTHER”-(pg.21). To conclude the fictional text of George Orwell as one with deviating aspects
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.
Societies and the people that constitute them vary widely across the globe and throughout history. But how do these societies impact the people that are a part of it, and vice versa? Authors George Orwell and William Golding each addressed this question in their respective books, 1984 and Lord of the Flies. In 1984, a man named Winston struggles with an oppressive, totalitarian government called the Party, which represents itself through a symbolic figurehead known as Big Brother. The Party wants complete control over every aspect of their citizens’ lives, and to achieve this, it surveils them constantly.
The two control methods are related as they contribute to one purpose the totalitarian control over the people of Oceania. The people are physiologically manipulated as discussed by the mental control measures, and physically forced into loving Big Brother. This is one of the methods the government uses to control people’s minds, by placing fear into them. The fear in 1984 limits the people into even thinking of challenging the government. The emotional trauma the people suffer is the fear they have when the government catches them not abiding to the laws.
In the novel they tell us about the government from Oceania, and how they control every single second of the citizens’ lives. Do you think it is fair that the government has that kind of control? In my opinion, I believe that the government doesn't need to know our every movement. They don't need to know where we are located at, or what we are doing, and what we are thinking about to talking about. Just how in the book Nineteen-Eighty four the government form Oceania controls every single moment of the citizens there big brother controls the future and the past “Who controls the past
The worst feeling is not being alone, it is feeling forgotten by someone you would never forget.

In the novel 1984, George Orwell describes an ideal totalitarian state that is able to have ultimate control control over its party members. This state successfully governs the members by means of internal and external control of the people’s daily activities. The state leaves very little room for rebellion because the people of Oceania live in fear of being caught for not following the states ideologies. The following essay will examine both internal and external modes of control and how these relate to each other. Furthermore, the possibility of rebellion and liberation will be discussed.
According to The Merriam Webster Dictionary, the definition of totalitarianism is “a system of government in which the ruler has unlimited power (Merriam-Webster).” The unscrupulous, deceitful government portrayed in George Orwell’s 1984 is an example of this kind of regime.. During his lifetime during the early 20th century, Orwell lived to see the rise of many all-powerful governments. The influential writer devoted himself and dedicated his work to the cause of socialism. In his most persuasive work, George Orwell uses a totalitarian government in that may be compared to numerous existing and inactive governments to alert individuals about the dangers of total conformity. Born on June 25, 1903 in Motihari, India, Orwell was quickly thrusted
Aldous Huxley once said, “One believes things because one has been conditioned to believe them.”(Brave) The protagonist of the novel, Winston sees conditioned belief happen in front of his eyes and even ends up becoming a victim of it throughout the story. In 1984, big brother keeps their population oppressed, brainwashed, and ignorant in many ways (Orwell 34). Newspeak is one of the main ways that big brother subjugates the citizens of Oceania. Most people fail to realize that newspeak is still in our society even in the 21st century. This modernized form of newspeak is what we call political correctness today.
Winston shows that everyone is intimidated by the telescreen’s omnipresent, incredibly powerful eye. It denounces criminals daily, and Winston lives in fear that the telescreen will pick up on even the slightest flicker of dissent report him. The telescreen is a very effective way of maintaining control because of its ubiquity. People are not given any privacy to think freely. Citizens live with the fear that someone is always watching them through the telescreen, analyzing every word and motion.
