George Orwell’s 1948 novel 1984 (Dean, 2003) tells the terrifying story of Big Brother watching everything from a telescreen. Winston is a person unhappy with this life that somebody monitors his move every second, somebody decides what he must do, what he should eat, or when he can sleep, he is at their disposal. He meets Julia who also hates the Party and wishes to rebel against it as he does. They fall in love against the party rules. They get in trouble with O’Brien who is spying for the government.
Biff, on the other hand, had it worse because his father sold him lies about his importance in the business industry, which forced Biff to admire Willy and strive to be like him one day. Willy’s consistent stroking of Biff’s ego misled Biff into thinking that he could get away with anything simply because he was “popular” and “well-liked”. However, when Biff accidentally stumbles upon his father’s adultery, his world crashes in on itself as he loses his sense of identity. He quotes, “I realized what a ridiculous lie my whole life has been” (Act II). Willy wasn’t much better with his “friends”.
Edmund’s hatred was continued by the reminder that he was only the bastard son of Gloucester driving him to lie to both of them ultimately ruining his father’s eyesight and his brother’s identity.

Winston however quickly finds himself uncomfortable in Mrs. Parson’s home. Not because of Mrs. Parson or even because of her telescreen, but rather her children who were much more dangerous than perhaps even the telescreen. They were members of a party led group called the Junior Spies, these “spies” are sent out by Big Brother to catch adults in committing thought crime. He has some fears that he has been caught, and duly writes these things in his journal. The next morning his dreams awake him before the alarm from the telescreen, it was time for his exercises and as he exercised he thought about history.
However, "if there is hope, it lies in the proles" (Orwell 72). George Orwell introduces the readers to Winston Smith, a member of the Outer Party. Winston is different from his comrades, for he is not truly a Big Brother adherent. Winston has realized that the world is full of manipulation, conspiracy and brainwashing, so he tries to escape, even if it means breaking the rules. "Big Brother is watching you" (Orwell 3).
He is the One to protect humanity and secure its future. Winston, on the other hand, did not receive any of the answers that he was looking for. He wanted to know if he was the only one in possession of a memory, and he wanted to know if this was all there is to life. But the Party convicts him of thoughtcrime and changes everything he ever believed in. The Party made him learn about Big Brother, they made him accept him, and ultimately, they made him love Big Brother and the principles of Ingsoc, and Winston did.
For Inner Party members, Big Brother is a leader, a bogeyman they can use to scare the people, and their authorization for doing whatever they want. If anybody asks, they can say they are under orders from Big Brother. For the unthinking proles, Big Brother is a distant authority figure. For Winston, Big Brother is an inspiration. Big Brother excites and energizes Winston, who hates him.
