The government uses this as a tactic to keep the cycle going. “In the Clockwork Orange, the anarchy quality of the society, indicates that pelagian liberals are in power.”(Novels). The Pelagian liberals control the people the whole time. Taking away their free-will the government brain washes the people. They brainwash the criminals to keep the population regulated and it instills the fear into the people, keeping the civilians always in fear not rebelling.
Big Brother controls every aspect of society including political, social, and economic activities as well as every aspect of the individual including both physical and mental behavior. Big Brother is able to manipulate its citizens to suite its own needs. Using science and technology as well as fear and intimidation, Big Brother eliminates all forms of individualism, independent thinking, and free choice. This leaves the government with the freedom to continuously shape and reshape all thoughts and activities of its citizens. In effect, Big Brother creates a utopian society by constantly monitoring, brainwashing, and if necessary destroying its citizens.
They, however, also fought wars with the other western countries. Furthermore, “The Red Army was successful in perpetuating a brutal totalitarian system at home and in Eastern Europe” (“Red Army” 1). Clearly, Stalin became obsessed with power and wanted to rule as long as he could; anyone who tried to overthrow him was shot dead immediately because he did not want a revolution to happen and cause another civil war. Additionally, Stalin achieved that by creating the Red Army he could kill anyone who even thinks about overthrowing him and the government. By creating the Red Army, Stalin was able to become a brutal dictator that ruled for so long, and he was also able to completely suppress the people so he can carry on the communist ideology.
Through thoughts, emotions, and actions and Any Rand’s Anthem shows that dictators must control every part of a man to ultimately defeat him. It is nothing but laws, leaders, and society that destroy the man. The laws are established to support the destruction, the leaders enforce it, and the society allows it. How can we allow the enslavement of an individual? How can we allow the obliteration of a mind and body?
These modern weapons of mass destruction are one of the most humiliating things humans have created. Their sole intention is to systematically and cheaply kill as many people as possible. Drones, chemical weapons, and nuclear weapons all disregard human rights because they kill many innocent people and children, put people through extreme amounts of suffering, and cause wide scale destruction that ruins homes, cities, and countries. More action should be taken to prevent the use of such weapons, such as international bans on drones, more enforcement on preventing the use of chemical weapons, and more safety precautions in the construction and maintenance of nuclear weapons. If humans wish to keep peace between all people, no matter where they’re from or what they believe, these weapons should never be used, no matter what because of the damage they do.
The media has shown how he is killing his own people for power. The struggle for power is killing the people of Iraq, but it is not their own government who is fighting for this power, it is the only remaining world super power, the United States of America, fighting constantly to hold on to its domination. It is a ritual of the United States to stop any country from taking our power. The government will destroy any way of life that may take away from the policy of democratic promotion, for the US is the model of such a way of life. If that role was threatened then their power would be threatened.
Can a society based on hate survive? Thesis: A society based on hate can survive as long as its leader is able to alter history, manipulate language, and physically control its constituents. With history being rewritten constantly, memories become unreliable and citizens are forced to believe in everything their ruler says. In the novel 1984, George Orwell depicts a totalitarian society where every bit of information released by the government is fabricated. The seemingly omnipotent Party rewrites the content of all books, newspapers, articles, and documents for its own ends.
Very similar to the Thought Police in 1984, the “Peacekeepers” roam around with specific commands from President Snow to torture and kill anyone who openly rebels against Capitol orders. The leaders of Panem definitely have a tendency to manipulate children and force them to commit murder for only a reminder to the districts that a rebellion would fail to succeed. Although each novel portrays very different scenarios, they both have very similar core characteristics. Both 1984 and The Hunger Games uphold the same dystopian principles such as controlling governments and strict social structure. Most profoundly, they utilize child manipulation and overbearing enforcers in almost the same way.
The Hunger Games are one of the most emotional, viscous and cruel books I’ve read before. But both heroes Katniss and Peeta have survived to live the next day. They are both winners and Katniss lives to feed her family once more. It was a fantastic book of amazing features, characters, themes and creativity.
Throughout history dictators such as Hitler, Mussolini and Kim Jong-Iland have used fear to manipulate thousands, if not millions, of people. Anthem by Ayn Rand explores a dystopian world where man is completely controlled. He complies to every order and demand without hesitation and is wholly satisfied with the way life is because it is all he knows. It is said to fully dominate a man, dictators must not only enslave his body but also destroy his mind. The manipulation in Anthem is far past fear alone; the leaders in Anthem also strip individuals of their identities, turn people into “robots” and leave the population naïve.
