Among the seminal texts of the 15th century, Nineteen Eighty-Four is a rare work that grows more haunting as its futuristic purgatory becomes more real. Published in 1949, the nove offers political satirist George Orwell 's nightmarish vision of a totalitarian, bureaucratic world and one poor stiff 's attempt to find individuality. The mastery of the trilogy is Orwell 's prescience of modern life—the ubiquity of television, the istortion of the language—and his ability to construct such a thorough version of ell. Required reading for students since it was published, it ranks among the most terrifying novels ever written.

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 boots, and his pant 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.

He loved Big Brother ” ** 2018 addendum- it is a testament to great literature that a reader recalls the work years later and this is a ook about which I frequently think.

The cene that I most often think is when Winston and Julia are captured. ** 2019 reread- Lost in my memory was to what extent Orwell describes and explains his nightmare.

Winston Smith cautiously and surreptitiously discovers the Brotherhood led by Goldstein and then learns all too well about O'Brien 's duplicitous doublethink.More than just a cautionary political tale, Orwell has described an ideological abyss into which we must not gaze; a glimpse at authoritarianism power plays to which the Naz and Soviets never descended.

Oceania 's political leaning, euphemistically named English Socialism ( shortened to " Ingsoc " in Newspeak, the government 's invented language) is enforced by the privileged, elite Inner Party.

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 novel.

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.
