Finally, it helped Americans come together and realize that every person in America was affected by the attack. To begin with, the leader of Al Qaudea, Osama Bin Laden, sent terrorists to bomb the Twin Towers to try and tear our nation apart, but all he did was make us closer and even more powerful. He sent his people to take flying lessons in Florida in order to fly the plane into the towers and the Pentagon. Their plan was to bomb the Twin Towers, Pentagon, and White House, but they failed to complete their mission. Instead they only succeeded in the Twin Tower destruction, because the Pentagon was still standing, and the last plane crashed in a field in Pensylvannia.
Cassidy Moss Romaguera English IV: E 13 October 2013 The Exploitation of Love and Technology In the Dystopian novels 1984 and Brave New World, George Orwell and Aldous Huxley create atmospheres that consist of their prediction of the future. “1984” and Brave New World contain totalitarian governments that encompass distorted views on the way societies should behave. Although the two leaders in the novels, Big Brother and His Fordship, carry out their regulations differently, the idea of how to control a society remains consistent. The key to maintain and establish a successful totalitarian society is through controlling the ideology toward personal relations and correctly using the advancement of technology for the “common good”. In 1984, Big Brother advocates a totalitarian society through controlling love and relationships.
Tom Parsons appears in the cell. His daughter has told the police that her father is guilty of thoughtcrime.

In 1984 history is used as a way for the Party to maintain its power and make the Party look really good. Also history is “forgotten” because if the citizens realize that the Party lies and is weak the Party will be overthrown. The way history makes the Party look good is by altering past newspapers so it seems that the Party can predict the future and is very powerful. Not only that they also make it seem like anything that is new and is good was created by the Party and anything that is old and not good is from pre-Party. In Brave New World history is no longer necessary unless you are a world controller.
Hannah Gantt Ms. Dairo English 4 HL – 2nd pd 22 January 2014 1984 Socratic Seminar 1. Why does the Party implement Newspeak?  The Party adapts the new language Newspeak because they want to restrict the people and take away their freedom of speech. Newspeak has words of opposite meanings than in English, so the people are being taught this and soon enough believe it. The words that are taken out no longer exist, and have no meaning and are meant to be forgotten.
In Orwell’s “1984” we see that a totalitarian society has taken over present day England to form a utopia for its citizens, but in reality this society is anything but a utopia; it is a negative utopia. The novel also displays the science fiction characteristic of how a society’s perception of reality can actually be altered and even controlled by a higher power; in this case the Party. One the government or the Party controls reality is the use of “doublethink”. By using this psychological manipulation technique it breaks down the individual’s ability to think for oneself ending the idea of individualism, it also suppresses any thought that the individual might have against the party. We can see this when Winston is looking in a children’s

George Orwell uses these allusions to help paint a picture of the totalitarian government that “The Party,” associated with “Big Brother,” imposed upon all the citizens of Oceana, including Winston Smith. According to Britannica Online, Totalitarianism is characterized by “strong central rule that attempts to control and direct all aspects of individual life through coercion and repression.” People of Oceana were under many forms of oppression. The most apparent and present form of this oppression is “Big Brother.” The phrase “Big Brother is watching” is stated throughout the novel to instill fear within Winston and the other citizens of Oceana. “The Party” implements a wide array of tactics to domesticate the average human. These forms of brainwashing included the mental bombardment of propaganda through the two way televisions, as well as posters of Big Brother with the message “Big Brother is watching.” These constant

Slavery has its hand in starting wars, such as the American Civil War. The twentieth-century saw another devastating oppression, and indeed war, in the form of the Holocaust.
