Nineteen Eighty-Four ( mostly written 1984) is a 1948 dystopian fiction written by George Orwell about a society ruled by an oligarchical dictatorship. The Oceanian province of Airstrip One is a world of perpetual war, pervasive government surveillance, and incessant public mind control. Oceania is ruled by a political party called simply The Party. The individual is always subordinated to the state, and it is in part this philosophy which allows the Party to manipulate and control humanity. In the Ministry of Truth, protagonist Winston Smith is a civil servant responsible for perpetuating the Party 's propaganda by revising historical records to render the Party omniscient and always correct, yet his meager existence disillusions him to the point of seeking rebellion against Big Brother.

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 ay and create a possible future based on exaggerations of such trends and in so doing present a compelling and critical argument for change.

The television also plays on his ears 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 discrimination, 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 essa.

The " truths " 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.

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 novel 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.

He came to realize that ideology in an oppressiv 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 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.

1984 is not a particularly good boo, but it is a very good ssay.
