THE​ ​REGULATION​ ​OF​ ​SOCIETY 

Is​ ​it​ ​our​ ​right​ ​or​ ​their​ ​right??? 
 
Winston​ ​Smith​ ​is​ ​a​ ​member​ ​of​ ​the​ ​Outer​ ​Party.​ ​He​ ​works​ ​in​ ​the​ ​Records​ ​Department​ ​in​ ​the 
Ministry​ ​of​ ​Truth,​ ​rewriting​ ​and​ ​distorting​​ ​history.​ ​To​ ​escape​ ​Big​ ​Brother's​ ​tyranny,​ ​at 
least​ ​inside​ ​his​ ​own​ ​mind,​ ​Winston​ ​begins​ ​a​ ​diary​ ​—​ ​an​ ​act​ ​punishable​ ​by​ ​death.​ ​ ​And​ ​that​ ​is 
merely​ ​the​ ​beginning… 
 
Totalitarianism.​ ​ ​In​ ​writing​ ​1984​,​ ​George​ ​Orwell’s​ ​main​ ​goal​ ​was​ ​to​ ​warn​ ​of​ ​the​ ​serious​ ​danger​ ​totalitarianism
poses​ ​to​ ​society.​ ​ ​Orwell​ ​was​ ​a​ ​Socialist​ ​and​ ​believed​ ​strongly​ ​in​ ​the​ ​potential​ ​for​ ​rebellion​ ​to​ ​advance​ ​society,
yet​ ​too​ ​often​ ​he​ ​witnessed​ ​such​ ​rebellions​ ​go​ ​wrong​ ​and​ ​develop​ ​into​ ​totalitarian​ ​rule.​ ​ ​This​ ​allegorical​ ​novel
draws​ ​connections​ ​to​ ​today’s​ ​society​ ​within​ ​the​ ​United​ ​States.​ ​ ​Are​ ​there​ ​seeds​ ​of​ ​totalitarianism​ ​in​ ​the​ ​United
States​ ​today?​ ​ ​Is​ ​that​ ​even​ ​possible​ ​in​ ​a​ ​Democratic​ ​Republic??
