Written in 1948, 1984 was George Orwell 's chilling prophecy about the future.

While 1984 has come and gone, Orwell 's narrative is more timely than ever. 1984 presents a " negative utopia ", that is at once a startling and haunting vision of the world — so powerful that it 's completely convincing from start to finish. No one can deny the power of this trilogy, its hold on the imaginations of entire generations of readers, or the resiliency of its admonitions — a legacy that seems to grow, not lessen, with the passage of time.

Despite being published back in 1948, I have yet to find a more chilling, nightmarish locale than Orwell 's iconic world of BIG BROTHER and INGSOC.

Looking back on it, I have NO IDEA why on Earth we were reading this nove at that age but I do recall we spent quite a bit of time discussing it.

I have always thought that one of the best and most important characteristic of science fiction is that it frees the author to take the controversial, politically charged issues and trends of the mont and create a possible future based on exaggerations of such trends and in so doing present a compelling and critical argument for change.

He came to realize that ideology in an authoritarian state is nothing but a distraction, a shiny thing made for the public to stare at.

He came to realize that the point of control was more control, the point of torture was more torture, that the point of all their " alternative facts " was to fashion a world where people would no longer possess even a word for truth.If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face — forever.

A Stalinist?), for while we try to discern his “ ideological goals, ” the enemy is busy pulling on his oots, and his oots are made with hobnails, with heel irons, and equipped with toecaps of steel.Finally, it does not matter who heads up the authoritarian state: a bully boy like Mussolini, a strutting coprophiliac like Hitler, a Napoleonic pig like Stalin, or a brainless dancing bear like Trump.

The television also plays on his fears of the unknown by exaggerating stereotypes of minorities and homosexuals, under the guise of celebrating " diversity ", but even these images of being ghetto-fabulous and a lisping interior designer actually exist solely to promote racism and prejudice, which also prove to be efficient distractions.For some reason, Winston gets tired of eating recycled Pop Tarts and eating happy pills and pretending to be interested in sports and manufactured news items.

WAR IS PEACE.FREEDOM IS SLAVERY.IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH.Those words keep sounding in my head since I read this memoi.

The " ruth " is what the state says it is.

That way, you 'll be indestructible and immortal.Ignorance is strength, means the division on high, middle, low classes in society will never be changed.

Afterwards, a new middle class arises, all will change except the low.
