(Question: How, according to O’Brien, does the The Party as an oligarchy differ from Nazism or Russian Communism? How does he define the role of the martyr, both in terms of The Party and the other totalitarian systems?).

What O’Brian tells us about the party been different form the nazis and he Russian communism is that they made their intentions clear. All the control they had was for one thing, power. He states that the nazis and Russians were very close t never recognize the real reason of doing it. Different for the nazis they don’t let anyone get up their level like they did in a limited time.
For the party if INGSOC there’s no martyr. The reason for that is by looking at the past de decades and totalitarian governments made. The first thing that happen was with the middles ages when they obligated the religion. If they were accuse of Heresy and were torture. At the end there were people that lie and end up rebelling. Later came the Russian revolution more powerful than the religion. Unfortunately he same mistake was made and the Russian communist was destroyed. What the party really tries to do is something more brainwashing. They get people to believe their truth rather than the real truth. The make them believe that two plus two is equals five and that peace is slavery.

The room above represents many things for Winston is a place were he can relax, sleep withouth being seen, do with Julia anything that he wants, and do anything that he wants because in other places there a TV’s with cameras seeing anything that you are doing and is been reported to the big brother party and you cant get in jail but in the room above he didn’t have that type of trouble. Another thing that this room meant to Winston is that is a place were you can remember real history that was not changed because of the party because this room had old pictures and old things and he could remember his past when he was children how confrotable the past was when the party was not still governing and winston in this room could remember the real past and the things that he was thinking about the past are correct is place were he can confirm his memory of the past is correct.image

“Within 200 yards of the apartment in which Orwell wrote 1984, there are now 32 security cameras.”

Orwell’s vision of a dystopian future has came true in many ways now in 2014-2015 as the following things that were in Orwell’s book of “1984”: The telescreens, DoubleThink and The memory hole. The telescreen in Orwell’ book were TV’s that were in public places and were a two-way TV’s in which they gave approved propaganda of the party and the TV’s spy the citizens. Now in 2014-2015 countries as U.S.A, London, etc. has security cameras on public places as parks, various streets and various places and if someone commits a infraction or a crime they can observe you through their cameras were you are or were are you going or they record you.

The DoubleThink in Orwell’s book was an act in which you accept two contradictions. This is happening now in various countries around the world for example in Honduras they wanted to create a law which was called ‘Ley Mostaza’ in which media can’t public too much things about crime to not stress people too much but in this same law media can’t public things that are happening inside the gorvernment only authorized things that the government accept so we can see that the government were wanting people to think that they wanted to control the media to them to not exagerate with the news and live in a less stressfull place but at the same time this law was to the government hide what there doing and people to not know what their doing.

For last we have the memory hole, in Orwell’s book the memory hole is a machine to dissapear incriminating or embarrasing documents. Now we have a machine very similar to that called the ‘Paper Shredders’ in which you can destroy any paper that you want and U.S.A president has one of this in his office in which he destroy every day a paper. In computers we can wipe its hard drive to erase any information or very important information that we don’t want to people know and in every country in the world the governments use computers.

With this quotation what Winston it’s trying to say is that the hope of a country is in the proles because the proles were the only people that could destroy the big brother party and the proles were the 85% of oceania and with the 85% of the proles being against the party oceania could return again to their normal lives withouth being controlled by somebody, and having full liberty, withouth news being changed or thing being changed to favor ther party and not living in a false world instead they would live in a real world.

The dream of Winston was to live in a real world and not in a false world so the dream of winston was that the big brother party came down and dissapear and he saw that the only people that could destroy the party were the proles because the proles were not with the party and they were very united and had humanity but as winston saw the proles had to wake up and stop being affraid of the big brother party and do something about the situation and Winston had hope that one day the proles will wake up and bring down the party.

So as we saw the only way to accomplish Winston ‘s dream of bringing the party down is that the imageproles could see the strength they have and they could wake up and attack the big brother’s party. The proles being the 85% of oceania population if they could wake up they have a 99% of winning and bringing the party down. If the party comes down oceania could live again as in their past being all of them free and having liberty and living in a true world and not in a false world but the proles have to wake up. “If there is hope it lies on the proles”.

1984 is a presentation of Orwell’s definition of dystopia and was meant as a warning to those of the modern era. What specifically is Orwell warning us against, and how does he archive this?

First we should know what dystopia is, it is, the total contrary of utopia, a place in which the government, laws, and social conditions are perfect, so a dystopia would be a place where people are unhappy and usually afraid, because they are not treated fairly. George Orwell, warns us, the people from the modern era, to be aware with the injustice that a truant or dictator wants to impose on us. Sometime, we may be fooled by the media, and the government may have an eye on you all the time, and may threaten you to death if you complain of the form of government, and you still do nothing about it

He achieves this, by making the reader disagree with the form of government s dictator imposes into a society, making the reader see how unfair that is by making the main character live the consequences of an unfair life that the reader wouldn’t want to live. It’s kind of propaganda in literature, the reader will have to take one side on the story, and Orwell tries to make that side be the one that does not imposes an unfair way of living to a society.
