Winston knows that he is breaking the law of the Party and is afraid, but he still does it. “Whether he wrote DOWN WITH BIG BROTHER, or whether he refrained…He had committed—would still have committed…Thoughtcrime they called it. (19)” Thoughtcrime is a fear the Party is able to put in the individuals mine. This crime is another hinderer of the Party to keep individuals minds locked in the state they want them to be in, to keep the truth in their identity and the environment around them in a locked state and the Party and Big Brother are the only ones with the key. The Party operates society into thinking they need the Party because they need to get into what the Party has for them, which is nothing but control, and since the Party is the suppose to be the key society must come through them.
Through his compliance to Big Brother, Winston forms a hate for its manipulation of the past and society. As Winston slowly becomes aware to his lack of identity and how the Party is manipulating the past, he finds himself to be one of the monsters helping Big Brother. Orwell illuminates the oppressiveness of the city through the regime with a motif of isolation, from Winston wondering if anyone felt the way he did. The Party’s total control and ever watching eye creates a hopeless that Winston can ever find another person that feels that way he does toward the dictatorship. The motif of isolation connects with the metaphors of Winston being an unimaginable monster lost in a sea bottom forest because of the culture of fear the regime has created.
He should truly love only the Big Brother – an icon and the dictator of the totalitarian Oceania. He finds a place where he believes he can secretly commit his crime of independent creative thinking. He needs to take this precaution because everyone is under a complete surveillance by the authorities through “telescreens” in their households. The phrase “Big Brother is watching you” constantly reminds the people of this through the propaganda system in this state. Winston’s rebellion continues when he falls in love with Julia, a woman he actually used to loathe.
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.
Through tactical approaches that target the lifestyles of the population, totalitarian governments break down an individual’s willpower, which leads to a sense of constant helplessness. The helpless population serves as fuel for making the government stronger because once people feel helpless, they are at the mercy of their government and thus cannot formulate their own thoughts and opinions to question authority Blind nationalism is an effective tool to control society because they are susceptible to conformity. Failure to conform to social norms may result in one's vaporization, as noted in 1984 when someone displays any irrelevant thoughts in front of a telescreen. They are constantly watched and expected to act angry during the Two Minutes Hate and to act neutral during any other meaningful social interaction. As people gather in a herd around a telescreen, Winston observes that “The horrible thing about the two Minutes Hate was not that one was obliged to act a part, but that it was impossible to avoid joining in” (Orwell 16).
Hyde”, he becomes two different people. Hyde ends up wreaking havoc in society and brings attention to Dr. Jekyll, who seems to never be around. People are curious and concerned why Jekyll wants to take care of Hyde and leads to an investigation from Mr. Utterson. The effects of Jekyll’s creation become worse as he can no longer control how often he turns into Mr. Hyde and has a decision to make. Jekyll’s conscience ultimately comes into play and knows that he cannot let Mr. Hyde be a permanent character in society as it is too dangerous.
Together, they meet secretly and devise plans on how to ruin the Party's rule. In the end, however, they fail, and the Party wins. Rules in Nineteen Eighty-Four are very harsh. Every law... ... middle of paper ... ...the presence of two controversial thoughts at the same time. The mind is even ready to agree with statements such as "War is Peace", "Freedom is Slavery", and "Ignorance is Strength" (Orwell 6).
Their forced ignorant perception of the world, including hatred for a plethora of other countries due to the fabricated past that they are taught, and common emotions make it possible for their society to survive on leader devotion, false victory, and hatred. In the world of 1984, written by George Orwell, indifference and hate toward others is what the government, the Party, thrives on. The rebel force, the Brotherhood, would like to annihilate the Party but not to change the outlook on life or on people. The main goal of the Brotherhood is put the people into different hands but with the same hatred and control. As an interview is being held for admittance into the rebellion the questions were gruesome.
El Patron is a cruel, selfish, heartless man who clawed his way to power in his youth and rules people with fear, though he is powerful, he is always nagged by the fact that he may lose everything. There is no way on earth he would let that happen. El Patron believes he is doing the clones a favor by allowing them to be smart, but in the end he uses them just like all the other clones in the world - for his own personal use. Esperanza, a fierce No Drug activist, once wrote that a more evil, vicious, and self-serving man (than El Patron) could hardly be imagined (Farmer 170). Though the practice of murdering clones is widely accepted in the book, it is morally wrong, and most people would at least have second thoughts about killing someone.
