When Winston asks O’Brian when they got him. “They got me long ago” (Orwell 220). O’Brian helps torture Winston and try’s to get him to love big brother. Winston realizes that he lied to him and Winston is very hurt. O’Brian is so complex because at one point he may have rebelled against the party.
Winston’s problems arise as he realizes he is not like most people around him, he does not like the society he is living in and wants to take down Big Brother. Winston soon meets a girl named Julia who dislikes Big Brother as well, and soon they begin to commit a wide variety of crimes together. They begin a forbidden love affair, but worry constantly about being caught. As Winston’s love for Julia grows, so does his hatred for Big Brother. Winston soon receives word that a man named O’Brien wants to see him, which excites him because Winston believes that O’Brien is a member of a secret party called The Brotherhood.
Winston Smith is a third-nine years old man who is a member of the 'outer-party'--the lower of the two classes. Winston works for the government in one of the four main government buildings called the ministry of Truth where his job is to rewrite history books in order for people not to learn what the past used to be like. Winston's occupation is the major factor which lets him to realize that Big Brother is restricting people's freedom. However, Winston keeps his complains about Big Brother and the party for his own secret because the party will not allow anyone keeping a rebellious thought. The tension between them gets serious when Big Brother becomes suspicious of Winston.
Being trapped without the ability of free words of speech, sex and the expression of individuality kills him. This leads Winston to buy a diary to bury all of his illegal thoughts down on paper. A man from the inner party, O’Brien unites with Winston to abolish the Party and its leader Big Brother. Winston meets a dark-haired girl from work who at first thought was going to report Winston for his thought-crime but instead ends up having an illegal affair with Winston and falls deep in love. “theyll shoot me i dont care theyll shoot me in the back of the neck i dont care down with big brother they always shoot you in the back of the neck i dont care down with big brother--” (Orwell 19).
The nature of this ac is explained this way after Winston had written a shocking sentence in his new diary: Whether he wrote DOWN WITH BIG BROTHER, or wh... ... middle of paper ... ... due to his unorthodoxy, such as maintaining a secret and promiscuous relationship with Julia, and the political ramifications of the sexual act; and lastly, the deconstruction of his individualism at the hands of the Party, due to its hunger for power over the mind. It is not surprising then, that among the imposing doctrines of the government of Big Brother, the character of Winston Smith was eventually wiped out. In conclusion, a passage from Winston’s diary: To the future or to the past, to a time when thought is free, when men are different from one another, and do not live alone — to a time when truth exists and what is done cannot be undone: From the age of uniformity, from the age of solitude, from the age of Big Brother, from the age of doublething — greetings!

Findley explains how, "…an agent of Churchill’s [was]-- playing on David’s [Duke’s] drunkenness to discover how deep his treason ran." (198) The Duke has become very manipulative in his schemes and people want to know what he plans to do next. Thus, the Duke of Windsor was very manipulative and created an alliance where many secrets were kept and where the only benefit of the war and alliance was all his own. Joachim von Ribbentrop is one of Hitler’s workers and whom Hitler has much trust in. He creates his own alliance to ensure that he will dominate the world.
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.
They are taken into the Ministry and separated. Julia's story is not told, but Winston is tortured with electricity, starvation, and the threat of Room 101. O'Brien tells Winston, "Always we shall have the heretic here at our mercy, screaming with pain, broken up, contemptible-and in the end utterly penitent, saved from himself, crawling to o... ... middle of paper ... ...s immediately makes her character part of the enemy, but in truth, she is one of the most rebellious characters. As Orwell develops her personality, the reader discovers that the first impression was just a farce. Julia's outer appearance illustrates complete dedication to the party, but her true personality is really the opposite.
Winston realizes that there is something wrong with this, yet he doesn’t know what. The re-writing of history is all he has ever known. It is most likely Winston’s job that leads him to rebel against The Party. In the First section of 1984 Winston doesn’t openly rebel, he starts a journal in which he writes how he remember the history that has been re-written. This is called thought crime, because it goes against what the party tells you to know.
Big Brother is able to dominate his citizens through serious manipulation and effort, all of which is used to reach the goal of attaining all of the power. In Winston’s work at the Ministry of Truth being one of the ways I which the government attains power. The goal of the Ministry of Truth is to change history. By controlling our views regarding the past, the government is able to control how the future develops. Power is persuasive, and by using power effectively, the citizens of Oceania are persuaded that their friend yesterday is now the enemy and so on and so forth.
