(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.

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”.

In what ways can you compare Big Brother to Hitler? (Part 1)

Hitler believed in a totalitarian government, as did Big Brother. Hitler wanted to show executions on TV and Big Brother wanted to torture people with their worst fears in room 101. Hitler was the face of Germany and Big Brother was the face of Oceania. You see, Hitler wanted people to see his enemies face the consequences of disobedience while Big Brother did not want to make any martyrs. A better example from 1984 may have been the public hangings that Parsons is unable to take his children to. The slogans of the party and compare them to Hitler’s state of mind. War is peace, and its idea of a constant state of war is comparable to Hitler making an enemy of the Jewish people, so that the Germans are united against the Jewish. The other party slogans can fit in.
