Analysis Of The Book ' Nineteen Eighty Four '

- Nineteen Eighty-Four showed us a world of cruelty and darkness, ruled by a totalitarian government only known as the Party, and it is no surprise to say that one of the relevant themes in this book is hopelessness. From room 101 to the party’s grip over the people, there are always symbols of oppression and signs of hopelessness throughout the book, but rather than just discussing the theme of hopelessness in this book, I want to expand on how hope is deprived from the people and how there can never be any hope of true freedom in Oceania....   [tags: Nineteen Eighty-Four, George Orwell, Big Brother]

Buddhism : The Four Truths And The Eightfold Path

This ideology has become one of the main fundamental principles in Buddhism in that there is no one “right” way to attain spiritual enlightenment.

Religion of Buddhism is less of orthodoxy or strict grouping of beliefs which is to be accepted in its totality, and more of a philosophy in which each person learns and uses in the manner in which they are comfortable....   [tags: Buddhism, Gautama Buddha, Four Noble Truths]

He saw how basic human rights and the idea of freedom could have been taken away by a controlling machine like government. Every action could be monitored and every sound heard. Being caught for nearly anything was punishable by either death or a multi decade prison sentence where you would be stripped of your personal identity even further.

Analysis Of George Orwell 's Nineteen Eighty Four

- As Walter Anderson philosophized, “[w]e’re never so vulnerable than when we trust someone—bust paradoxically, if we cannot trust, neither can we find love or joy”. According to this quotation, trust is vital in allowing others into one’s life and creates an individuality that is brought with private relationships. At the same time though, it is at the peak of trusting others when one is the most vulnerable to betrayal and deceit. In Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell, the ruling government, known as the Party, viciously suppresses any trust in others; however, it pushes the trust in Big Brother, the figurehead of the government....   [tags: Nineteen Eighty-Four, George Orwell, Big Brother]
