Gosh, presumably the most unpleasant also terrifying book I’ve at any point perused. 1984 ought to likewise be remembered for the repulsiveness type.
1984 depicts an Utopia. Not Thomas More’s rendition of Utopia, however this is one is the absolute opposite, for example Oppressed world. Envision living in a nation, whose pioneers apply an authoritarian framework in managing their resident, in the most outrageous ways, which make Hitler, Mao, Stalin and that old chap in V for Vendetta look like sissies.
Working, eating, drinking, resting, talking, thinking, procreating…in short living, all are constrained by the state. Any trace of dutifulness or abhorrence can be recognized by different state device, for example, the Thought Police, telescreen, or even your kids, who won’t stop for a second to deceive you to the specialists. Indeed, even language is altered in such ways that you can’t communicate, since independence is a wrongdoing.
The past is controlled, changed into something that will reinforce the occupant ruler. Who controls the past, controls what’s to come. Who controls the present, controls the past. There is no genuine truth. The “fact of the matter” is the thing that the state says it is. Dark is white, 2+2=5, if the state says as much.
The world in 1984 is partitioned into three states, started from the remains from World War II: Oceania (British Isles, the Americas, Pacific, Australia), Eurasia (Europe and Russia), and Eastasia (its remainder). Consistent fighting between those three (who hold comparative philosophies) is required to maintain the general public’s control and harmony. Si vis pacem para bellum. That is depicts the main trademark.
The subsequent motto, opportunity is bondage, implies the best way to be free is by letting you lose yourself and to be incorporated inside the Party. That way, you’ll be indestructible and undying.
Numbness is quality, implies the division on high, center, low classes in the public arena will never be changed. The center needs to be the high and they’ll act “for the low” to depose the high. A while later, another white collar class emerges, all will change aside from the low. The high and center make and maintain the law, the low (lowly) is simply too idiotic to even think about revolting. The state keeps up its structure by torment, terrorizing, savagery, and conditioning.
Blimey, Orwell’s Animal Farm is as of now discouraging, yet 1984 gives “melancholy” another importance, at any rate for me.
