There will also be no crime in this world because everyone has been brainwashed into getting behind the government and the thought police can arrest someone for thinking of a crime so no one can commit one because you must think of a crime to commit it.The book “1984” is based in a dystopian world in 1984.“It was a bright cold day in April”, this puts forward the idea that that in the time of rebirth (spring, dawn of a new year) there is a war between weather and a strong contrast.Ignorance can be seen as strength because it is something that protects the people from other wars and is what the government uses to drive the people.The main feature of this book that makes it such a dystopian world is the three statements on the ministry of ...

The Thought Police, which is a symbol of the government’s authority and control over the people of Oceania, create violence or war by killing or torturing those in rebellion against the Party.In summary, the paradoxical slogan “Freedom is Slavery” contains a degree of truth as in order for the Party to have freedom from rebellion and enjoy their spoils, they must force the people of Oceania into slavery.The establishment of war and violence brings peace to the Party as the people are reminded of their ruler, their savior, Big Brother, and the Party gains their further support.They do so by using the war as an excuse to utilize and consume all the wealth that the society could hold.In doing so, they do not come to “realize that the privil...

Winston constantly struggled for individuality in a society were there is no “I” there is only ‘we”, individuality and freedom of expression is forbidden, punishable by death.Fahrenheit explores more the emotional changes in Montag that convinces him to relinquish his part in destroying freedom of expression enforced by the fireman and the state and to embrace his curiosity and his humanity.However 1984 is an extreme version of this prediction of the future.The telescreen in 1984, shared the same idea but consisted of other more sinister uses such as spying on those suspected of thoughtcrime, revolutionary thoughts against the party, overhearing conversations and playing militaristic key speeches and propaganda techniques seen in Nazi Ge...

Through this we can see both Orwell’s shared perspective on the detrimental impact of dictatorship rule and the intertextual connection to political reform as he makes a statement against the dictatorship of Nazi Germany during World War 2.In Orwell’s ‘1984’ the dystopic totalitarianism society is suppressed into worshipping Big Brother and dares not to step away from the control of the organisation.Even though Maria’s rebellious nature is far more peaceful than Julia’s, she still epitomises the contextual connections of the empowerment of women as a result of refusing to give up the power they had acquired during World War 1.Both texts were composed around the context of pre and post World War 2 which is clearly evident through their se...

Though American government isn’t as austere as the fictitious one in 1984, there are definite parallels between Orwell’s writings and today’s society.Though the media uses it as a positive tool, the government puts many warning out there about celibacy and that pre-marital sex will surely lead to disease and death.To utter the wrong word, to form the wrong facial expression, to simply breathe the wrong way is illegal and therefore cause for punishment, nothing short of death of course.In 1984, The Party is in control of every source of information, including historical events occurring in the past and the present.In these ways, both the government of Oceania and the American government follow the same path.

However, one can also compare the child’s predicament to those drafted and required to go to war, which are required to sacrifice their lives for the people of its land as the child sacrificed its freedom for the citizens of Omelas.The story portrays a utopia where the citizens of Omelas enjoy freedom and pleasures much like Americans do today because of the sacrifice soldiers give everyday for the citizens of the United States.As human beings, we strive for freedom, and as we see in both our world and the one in the story, no one is truly free.There are no slaves in this utopia, as described by the narrator, but in actuality, the child’s freedom is taken from it, similar to slavery.Conversely, the narrator shows the reader that a perfec...

Though 1984 is a fictious story written over 50 years ago, its message is still relevant today.It is the principle on which Ingsoc (the society of 1984) is founded.The term was characterized by Hannah Arendt, the German-American political theorist who wrote The Origins of Totalitarianism, inspired by Hitler and Stalin of the just-finished World War II and just-starting Cold War.We assume that we have the right to freedom of speech, and that our language cannot be corrupted, yet Orwell says, “Political language- and with variations this is ture of all political parties, from Conservatives to Anarchists- is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind,” (“Politics and the E...
