The Inner party’s propaganda campaigns have prevented their members from forming meaningful relationships, thus allowing the party to have complete control. The party distracts the general public by preying on their fear, which prevents them from creating resistance against the party. The Outer party is incapable of opposing the Inner party, as they allowed the rise of the Inner party, and are now forced to turn a blind eye, out of fear. Winston also thinks: “If there was hope, it must lie in the proles, because only there, in those swarming disregarded masses, eighty-five percent of the population of Oceania, could the force to destroy the party ever be generated”(69). The proles only worry about their simple life, and not their government.
In Ray Bradbury's award-winning novel, Fahrenheit 451, society feels the true weight of those who are powerful, the government, but the beauty of it is that the people do not realize it. The government works to destroy all books and knowledgeable material, and essentially eradicate all the individualism, the personal opinions of the people. Guy Montag, the main character and protagonist, makes an effort to resist the oppressiveness of the government, yet soon realizes that his sole efforts will never be sufficient to bring awareness to the oblivious people, as the government had removed all judgment and personal opinion, destroyed any evidence of their existence. The people had been lost to the power of the government. Hence, Fahrenheit society falls victim to the government because the people allow their minds to be overtaken and their individualism to be destroyed.
In the end we shall make thought-crime literally impossible, because there will be no words in which to express it” (Orwell, 46). One can detect from this quotation that the people of Oceania, as a group, have been brainwashed by the Inner Party to use only Newspeak. Syme, for one, understands the purpose of it, and he still complies with the system because he has been trained to do so. North America in 2001 is much different from Orwell’s 1984 because freedom of expression is a dominating factor in our culture’s communication. In conversation as well as newspapers and magazines, a variety of views and opinions are openly expressed.

These rulers are incapable of properly ruling because they cannot trample on the liberty of their subjects, or they will become considered “foul oligarchs” (Porter 84) and this further generates anarchy through the lack of rules and punishments the rulers can place on the city. It is the people who elevate “one man as their champion above all others” (Porter 86) and at first it is a good society because he does not claim to be a ruler but “freed people from debt and redistributed the land to the people” (Porter 86-87).

It is much more realistic because Plato’s view is a society that is not acceptable by the people, especially not allowing the guardians to keep their own children, to eliminate the idea of inheriting rights, and our basic principals of society have transformed since his time from hierarchy, harmony, and mutual obligation to equality, competition, and self-interest. Hobbes is also not appropriate because his cynical attitude towards men is not appealing to society and the sovereign aspect is not suitable in a democratic nation.

This is a personification, giving it a figure of a monster. Justice is merely subjective and it’s represented with different perspectives in the novel, it depends on the context of the society and willingness of the citizens of Oceania to make their own justice against the laws set by the government. In 1984 by Orwell, he tries to warn the audience of what the world would be like if there was a totalitarian government. He depicts justice being served as something bad, because justice in this novel refers to the following of the laws and not moral justice.
They don’t get to think anything that the Party does not approve of. They are forced to love the Party/Big Brother and if they don’t, then they will be put in prison and tortured. This is dehumanizing because humans are supposed to be thinking their own thoughts and having their own ideas. One of the biggest qualities of being human is being able to think on one’s own, so if this is not possible, then people in Oceania won’t be able to be considered as human. O’Brien says to Winston, “’You hate him.
First the government use firemen to get rid of books because they are afraid people will rebel, they use preventative measures like censorship to hide from the public the truth, the government promotes ignorance to make it easier for them to control their citizens. Because the government makes books illegal, they make people suppress feelings and also makes them miserable without them knowing.

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.
To emphasize the irony behind it all the Ministry of Truth 's moto was: War Is Peace Freedom Is Slavery Ignorance Is Strength. As a part of teaching to hate freedom and many other things that wouldn 't be allowed in their "perfect" society they would have Hate Week; which is where they group all Ocianians together and have a rally against the enemies of "justice". The Dystopian element is very obvious in 1984 as you have a Totalitarian leader and a mind washed population, because it shows that the government wasn 't concerned with the psychological effects that this kind of a society can have on people. It shows how a government may go great lengths to try to ensure that someone will follow a new
