Existence of freedom

            Living in a society where the government takes all the power over its people and with limited freedom of expression is detestable. A totalitarian society in George Orwell's novel 1984 touches many disturbing aspects on the denial of a person's rights. People's lives, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness are all controlled by the Inner Party, which governs the people of a province called Oceania in order to keep them from rebelling. 1984 is a compelling novel; for it represents an important guide to life for all human beings. It also teaches us that living in a totalitarian government is dangerous because it's like living in a world of monstrous machines and terrifying weapons. Futhermore, it gives us the warning to the government systems and individuals regarding how society should not be controlled by any single supreme power. .
             In the beginning of the story the main character, Winston Smith, everywhere he goes he is watched by the telescreens, and everywhere he looks he sees the face of the Party's omniscient leader, the figure is known as Big Brother. The Party controls everything, even the people's history and language. The Party is currently forcing the implementation of an invented language called Newspeak, which prevents the possibility for political rebellion by eliminating all words related to it. To me, a person's right should never be defied; therefore it frightens me that a government could ever control the people in such a way. Perhaps the method "Doublethink- that Big Brother designs has brainwashed people, Doublethink means the power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one's mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them. Therefore, privacy does not exist in this society because all the thoughts and actions are recorded by telescreens at all times. .
             Winston is a man who works in the Ministry of Truth, the department of the State concerning itself with the rewriting of history so that all historical facts agree with the present state of Oceania.
