Democratic Illusion or Totalitarian Actuality In the classic novel Nineteen Eighty-four George Orwell describes a totalitarian society in which the government has complete control over its people through means such as the widespread use of propaganda and the unfathomable power of their leaders In the context of this discussion our world will refer to North America Our world is not far from becoming a totalitarian society because of the circumstances that make our realm similar to 1984 In both worlds our channels of information are controlled our day-to-day activities are monitored and our rights and freedoms are restricted Nineteen Eighty-fours government named Big Brother controls all forms of information much like how our channels of information are controlled By doing this our dominators hold more power over society There are media barons that exist in our world who are very similar to Big Brother and this small group of people control what the rest of us get to hear read or watch These few individuals have an incalculable influence in many lives The purpose of controlling the flow of information is to gain power over the population Knowing that political leaders seek control over us should not surprise us for governments this is an evolutionary thing and it has only one direction to evolve towards more control Slave 1999 By deluding the populace into hearing what they want to believe the masters are able to maintain their control over us Some examples of this would be to allow persons to believe that they have the freedom to express themselves or that they live in a democratic society where everyone is equal to everyone else These ideals are an illusion created so as to provide a domain stable enough to rule Nineteen Eighty-fours Big Brother also feeds their own ideals to their society to control their nation named Oceania They deliver thoughts of hate and anti-sexuality to also create stability in their country
