Winston was being called a traitor by a young boy. For the people of Oceania, outburst of treason coming from young children is not uncommon. Young children are being taught to spy on their parents and other adults to find out if they are resisting the Party. Children found holding such a responsibility only made their love for the Party grow stronger. Children were being trained as spies so when they became adults the need for resistance would be obsolete.
had overheard some compromising remark and denounced his parents to the Thought Police” (24). By using the children of Oceania the Party is able to simultaneously find more people who could possibly try to rebel and create a new generation of citizens where the only alliance they feel is that towards Big Brother and the Party. The government has suppressed all basic human connections: “The terrible thing that the Party had done was to persuade you that mere impulses, mere feelings, were of no account, while at the same time robbing you of all power over the material world” (136). The government knows that human nature can overcome the influence of the Party, therefore they encourage the suppression of feelings so they have better control of the population. The bond Winston and Julia create evolves their disdain towards the regime gives them courage to fight against the government: “They can’t get inside you.
The party’s slogan, “WAR IS PEACE. FREEDOM IS SLAVERY. IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH.”(Orwell 4) is to convince the residents that what they want is what they already ha... ... middle of paper ... ...used in order to keep track of their parents, “The children, on the other hand, were systematically turned against their parents and taught to spy on them and report their deviations” (Orwell 76). With extreme surveillance, residents may not express their individual ideas towards the negative side of the Party, and even all thoughts are controlled due to the Party “reeducating” people for an incorrect facial expression. By using language as a tool of control as well as the evidence for sentences, Orwell makes a world where language, a word or a sentence, may determine one’s life.
The political party of Oceania is INGSOC, which is also known as English Socialism. The government monitors the lives of the citizens through technological means to insure loyalty through surveillance, propaganda and brainwashing. The Party, as the government is known, goes so far as to control the people's thoughts and ideas. They have even replaced English with Newspeak, the language of the party. By removing meaning and suggestion from the vocabulary, they hope to obliterate anti-social thinking before it has a chance to enter a person's mind.
His argument is very reasoning to his defence and he eats so many reason to why the work works in its evil ways of discrimination. He wants everyone to that, it's very easy to not be very discriminated by the way you look but the way your skin color. Mr. King is very descriptive of his words and his meaning for them.

The society squashes the people, who fear the self-determination involved with secrets, but Equality carries out his plan to show his glass box to the World Council of Scholars and defies the Council through symbolism, which greatly influences the overall theme and moral outcome of the novelette. To begin with, Equality experiences a realization that "the secrets of this earth are not for all men to see, but only for those who will seek them" (52). However, his fellow society members show apprehension towards the steps that they must take in order to achieve these secrets. Consequently, Equality steals multiple items from the community in order to further his learning, including equipment from various Houses.With the aforementioned equipment, he sets up a laboratory in the sewer and studies many sciences and other topics.

This essay with compare and contrast the message and tone of each novel as well as consider whether the utopia is a positive or negative one. In 1984, George Orwell explores the many facets of a negative utopia. Orwell seems to focus on the measures that the government takes to maintain a public of plebeians who have no personality or identity and believe that they are not unique individuals, but instead are part of a greater senseless mob of people who constantly work for a hostile and oppressive government which is involved in incessant wars. These people are taught to love. They then learn to fear their government because they believe all of the propaganda that is constantly instilled into their minds.
He thinks that even this simple act of attempting to keep track of time and history could get him vaporized. This scene portrays the strong grip the government has on its patrons. A person either obeys them, or is killed, or put into a forced labor camp. After Winston starts an illegal affair with a younger woman he gets careless and "the party" finds out that he has committed what they call "thought crimes". A thought crime is the intent to do something illegal but not actually doing it.
The propaganda used on children to brainwash them to “instill a love” upon the Nazi regime, is a direct correlation to the novel, in that, there were junior spies who were also children, but children that were trained to catch anyone that committed a thought crime (Grobman). In the novel, the Parson’s family, consisted of a typical household: husband, wife, and two children; however, there is one distinct contrast to the typical family in today’s society. The children are as aforementioned junior spies, and they spy on everyone, even their own parents. Unfortunately for Winston, the children shriek, “Traitor!” and “Thought-criminal!” as they are spying on him, which would later be his ultimate demise (Orwell 23). Similarly, young children at the time of the Nazi regime, were around all kinds of propaganda filled arts such as music, radio, theatre, films, and more to instill the love of the Nazi Party to the point where it was second nature to them.
Thought crime occurs when someone does not fully agree and follow what the Party has said. People who commit crimes become unpersons; therefore, they stop existing, and any record of their existence is erased or they can be sent to the ministry of truth, where The Party will try to break them, and force them to love Big Brother. This is very relevant because in order to serve justice which according to them is having everyone love the Party and nothing else, everyone else must be eliminated or brainwashed. The use of technology in this novel is very important because it is the main way in which justice is carried out. Telescreens, microphones and cameras cover the whole nation.
