George Orwells novel 1984 is about a distopian future in which the government the Party controls every aspect of its peoples lives The government brainwashes its people into believing anything it says In todays world there are governments that try to control all the aspects of its people lives Even in free democratic countries the government invades peoples privacy and spreads propaganda Many of the techniques that the Party uses to control its people are used by many governments today because of this the dangers that Orwell warns of are very relevant today As time continues our society becomes more technologically advanced and this makes it easier and easier for our privacy to be invaded In todays world there are many ways in which we are being watched by Big Brother There are now cameras that can be disguised to look like clocks smoke alarms buttons and mirrors At work companies monitor what web sites their employees go on Police use wires to go undercover and record confessions Also peoples credit card bank and phone records are cataloged by their respective companies All of these things are not currently used by the government to keep a watch on us but they easily could be In 1984 people were given identity numbers and were referred to by this number That is like the social security numbers that are currently in use today in America In a sense these numbers have become our identity numbers Any time you buy a house or car apply for a job apply to a school or go to a doctor you must use your social security number Also this number is needed when we buy guns open bank accounts apply for credit cards and open bank accounts Almost every move we make is tracked by this number and it is basically who we are In 1984 there were no countries just three super powers and disputed territory
