Stalin wanted complete control as did “big Brother” in 1984, Joseph Stalin focus was “centered on government control of the economy and included the forced collectivization of Soviet agriculture, in which the government took control of farms. Millions of farmers refused to cooperate with Stalin’s orders and were shot or exiled as punishment. The forced collectivization also ... ... middle of paper ... ... far worse rules that could arise in the future if we leaves dictators unchecked. As like in his book shows us how those totalitarian societies take control of all and creates a horrific government of lies and countless murders to retain power. His inspiration of creating this government came from the horrors of world war two when leaders like Stalin and Hitler, killed millions of people to try to gain power over there people.
The Hunger Games- “a futuristic dystopian society [Panem] where an overpowering government controls the lives and resources in twelve different districts” (The Hunger Games). The overpowering government lives in the Capitol of Panem and from there controls the citizens of the twelve districts through propaganda and other means. The Capitol has all of the economic and political power in Panem; they have complete control. The leader of the capitol is the harsh, dictator-like figure, President Snow. President Snow’s methods for keeping order in the districts are through Peacekeepers and the annual Hunger Games.
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 stories of both Winston Smith and Katniss Everdeen in 1984 and The Hunger Games follow the characters through their struggles set in a futuristic dystopian society. In both of the novels, the governments of the societies have an iron grip on their citizens. The people in the countries are afraid to even do so much as think bad thoughts about the system they are governed by, for fear of having their tongues cut off, or worse. There is a clear and defined hierarchy system in both of the dystopian societies, and at the top of each society is a single male dictator who has an immense totalitarian power over the citizens. There is also a large fear inflicting police force in each novel that sides with the dictator and keeps the people under
These large corporations have done many unethical acts such as taking out life insurance policies on employees and infiltrating the government to pass their agenda. Moore also goes onto talk about how FDR wanted to create a new bill of rights to protect the working American citizen. To get his point across, Moore goes to the affected people to tell the story about corporations taking life insurance policies on their employees. Large corporations take out life insurance policies on employees that have an increase chance of death. Now the problem with this is instead of a family member being the beneficiary, the company is.
The inner party controls the thoughts of people by telling individuals of historic conditions before the revolution, conditions of oppression and extreme poverty worse than anything people could imagine. From birth to death no one had enough to eat, everyone slept ten to a room and Capitalists owned everything in sight. The party did this to eliminate any possibility of rebellion of the people. Historical data no longer existed; every ounce of history was wiped and rewritten by the party for the necessary precautions of rebellion, (Orwell 76). The lies written by propaganda within the... ... middle of paper ... ...government operates especially if it is one that rules and does not allow contact with the outside world.
Hence, in each narrative, the author illustrates the individual’s role in effecting social change and the conditions under which such change becomes possible. In “1984,” Orwell uses Winston to portray a single individual’s attempt to take action against a powerful government, culminating in his failure and subjugation. His individual efforts failed tremendously due to the overarching power of the Party to control every aspect of social life in Oceania. Orwell uses Winston’s deeply seated hatred of the Party to portray his views on power and social change. Winston’s actions show that even in the direst of situations ... ... middle of paper ... ...ahlquist’s sacrifice highlights Heinlein’s belief, that the same self-sacrificing impulse that Winston had, might facilitate positive social change.
All people they eliminate love the "Party" when they are finally killed. For example: Winston is captured and brought to the "Ministry of Love," he then is brainwashed and released to society when he truly liked the "Party." Once he lived in the community for a while longer he is shot in the back of the head. The trains of thought, government, and society of the year 1984 versus George Orwell's 1984 are clearly different. After looking at the differences I stated, the reason why most people who have read the book feel sorry for Winston should be more apparent than ever.
1984 by George Orwell is an extremely negative outlook on a futuristic, seemingly utopian society. People inhabiting the land of Oceania are enslaved to the government, most without even realizing it. The Party uses its many members to enforce its methods of control on the population. While a bit extreme, Orwell was attempting to warn people about the dangers of totalitarianism. The story focuses largely on the tactics of the Party?s manipulation.
For example in the book Katniss has put her name down for the reaping as everyone else do too. ‘The rules of the Hunger Games are simple. In punishment for the uprising, each 12 districts must provide a boy and a girl, called tributes, to participate.’ This quote from the book shows how the Capitol has made a law that they punish the districts because they were all smothered to bits and district 13 has been fully destroyed by the Capitols army. Although this book shows how Katniss resists the kinds of power against the capitol for example. How she salutes into the air in the games and everybody sees or when Rue dies and Katniss cover her with flowers.
