A world of fear and treachery and torment, a world of trampling and being trampled upon, a world which will grow not less but more merciless as it refines itself. The fictional state of Oceania becomes an eternal omnipotent power that is essentially immune to revolution especially by the proletarians who make up nearly eighty-five percent of the population.
If you have ever cherished any dreams of violent insurrection, you must abandon them. There is no way in which the Party can be overthrown. The words he utters to Winston evidently reflects the conspiracy he has committed with the Party. When Newspeak dominates the way the population thinks, feels, and acts by instilling Doublethink, people will no longer have a sense of personhood or identity. Procreation will be an annual formality like the renewal of a ration card.
There will be no loyalty, except loyalty toward the Party. There will be no love, except the love of Big Brother. Revolutions uprising will be a movement of the past with little or no hope to come.
The perpetual existence of Oceania is dependent upon the fabrication of language as a way to dominate the individual mind. With absolute eternal power over the individual, the timeless idea of identity and self breakdown and are vanquished. The Party is truly powerful in that it can influence the present, the past and the future. Thirdly, in order to stay in power, one must appear to be compassionate.
Compassions implies a connectionwith the people and empathy for their situation. If the ruler does not appear compassionate, people would be unlikely to support him, because they would perceive that the ruler would not have their best interests at heart and would be out of touch with what their lives are like. Even if it is not a compassionate system, the appearance of compassion renders the Party powerful. All in all, one must be confident, influential, and compassionate in order to be powerful.
In the story a party known as the inner circle uses a few slogans and sayings to control everything. Foreshadowing is often used to predict death or fortune and can be valuable for the reader 's comprehension. In the novel , George Orwell depicts a utopian society and a totalitarian government.
Society is at constant war and freedom is crumbling. Death is everywhere along with poverty, and censorship. It shows the future of a government bleeding with brute force and propaganda. This story begins and ends in the continent of Oceania one of the three supercontinents of the world These three super-states are constantly at war with each other, regularly forming different alliances First I will talk about the similarities and then I will finish off with the differences, all of which will be based on factual information that I have gathered both, from the book and the mainstream media.
Then I will finish by coming to a conclusion to an opinion I have and whether the government systems are more similar or different Freedom Is Slavery. Ignorance Is Strength.
The party slogan of Ingsoc illustrates the sense of contradiction which characterizes the novel That the book was taken by many as a condemnation of socialism would have troubled Orwell greatly, had he lived to see the aftermath of his work. Socialist idealism in had turned to a total loss of individual freedom in exchange for false security and obedience to a totalitarian government, a dysutopia It kills the imagination dead. It clogs and clutters up the mind. It makes a child so dull and blind.
He can no longer understand a fantasy, A fairyland. His brain becomes as soft as cheese. His powers of thinking rust and freeze. The trusted compatriot when turned into the adversary of the protagonist creates not only an element of deception, but also the purest yet most inadequate form of humanity. Whether it is a teenager with protective parents or an adult in the workplace with an ever-watching boss the feeling of continuously being watched is unnerving. Throughout history the levels of government supervision have fluctuated from lows to extremes but sometimes the future seems to hold even more watchful governments.
These were the feelings when George Orwell wrote the novel George Orwell showed a world without the freedoms that citizens in the United States live with every day Imagine a world of lifeless shells of humans.
In such a distraught society it's no surprise that people will loss their humanity. For those characters that still had sanity, the impact of this world would twist their minds to the limit. To be human is to be able think and learn without any restraints Winston from stood his grounds throughout the book, but the society standards and rules created by Big Brother soon consume him.
Similarly, the entire Kingdom of Denmark bombarded Hamlet with betrayal amongst his own family and loved ones such that drove him into madness. There is no conventional freedom, there is no real individual in this world, there is a sense of coldness in The main character Winston is trying to figure out his past and what is real and what is propaganda in this world One of the unique notes about Orwell's , is the views that Orwell presents on humanity, and human nature I think this book really shows us what would happen if the government gets too powerful.
It was written long ago and set in the future, but I feel like the message is still very relevant today.

Logic does not rule here; pure instinct, the drive for survival, is what reigns supreme in this realm. However, there are those chosen few who are allowed in, and it is they who are most dangerous; they alone know how to best maul, injure, and in the end, betray. Orwell created such a relationship in between Winston and Julia The government that is created in the novel is ruled by Big Brother and that consist of three branches.
The Ministry of Peace, which concerned itself with war. The Ministry of Love, which maintained law and order. And the Ministry of Plenty, which is responsible for economic affairs. Both Casablanca, the classic s film, and , a piece of classic literature by George Orwell, revolve around a world in chaos, where it is impossible to trust anyone, and a war wages on within and without. In , the protagonist, Winston, hides from a totalitarian, thought controlling government, that is out to stomp out all aggression against the Party.
In Casablanca, the lead character, Rick, dealt with a world rocked by the impacts of World War II, where everyone was a spy, and even the spies were spied on. Both wish for hope and courage in their mutually exclusive worl The humans that inhabit it do not live, they are simply expected to exist for the good of the sinister Party, a totalitarian government, while their leader gazes down at them from every wall, watching their every move.
