The novel 1984, by George Orwell is about resisting the majority and reveals that when one takes a stand, they can strive for the betterment of society. In the beginning of this novel, Winston develops a hatred towards The Party ( the government of Oceania) after he realizes the oppression everyone in Oceania is blinding going through. The Party controls the past by rewriting all documents, controls the citizens of Oceania by watching everyone all the time, and change the language in order to stop the citizens from thinking as much. At first Winston takes small, private actions to rebel against the society he lives in such as writing in a diary. That journal is the first act of rebellion in his journey. Winston later falls in love with a Julia, who like him also wants to defy The Party. Their relationship is a way to disobey The Party (148 words). “‘Ours is founded upon hatred. In our world there will be no emotions except fear, rage, triumph, and self-abasement. Everything else we shall destroy- everything. Already we are breaking down the habits of thought which have survived from before the Revolution. We have cut links between child and parent, and between man and man, and between man and women. No one dares trust a wife or a child or a friend any longer'” (Orwell, 267). All around me are familiar faces. Worn out places, worn out faces. Bright and early for their daily races. Going nowhere, going nowhere. Their tears are filling up their glasses. No expression, no expression. Hide my head, I want to drown my sorrow. No tomorrow, no tomorrow. (Roland Orzabal) In this passage Winston has been captured and taken to the Ministry of Love, where O’brien is physically and mentally torturing Winston until he believes and obeys the laws of The Party. O’brien is describing the vision he sees for the world if The Party continues to rule Oceania.This is the very reason Winston wanted to repair the civilization, it was because the citizens would no longer be capable of feeling love. The citizens would not been free, nor would they want to be free, as they would be mindless slaves, surrendering to Big Brother and the inner party. The song, Mad World depicts a world in the perspective of someone who is depressed and sees the world as a dark and heartbreaking place. Both of these pieces of writing describe a place where humanity is non existent. Humans need love and that is absent in both
