It seems that research has discovered that if a politician talks in platitudes he has a better chance of getting himself or herself elected. Being specific seems to detrimental because too many questions are asked. Bill Hillsman, a media expert said that, “obviously, a candidate seeking votes is going to emphasize shared concerns and issues that are popular. But all too often political leadership simply means finding out what the people want and telling them you’ll give it to them” (Benson A3).
Referendums offer the general public a choice, they are not only good for helping the public feel more involved but they are good for deciding important decisions such as changes to the constitution.

Why would a group of people want to consciously and purposely create such a fearful aura? On page 68 of the book, “The Social Psychology of Politics”, Ottati and Isbell offer their insight on moods and how they play an important role in politics. These insights provide a plausible answer to these questions. The authors explain the importance of mood when forming opinions and beliefs about certain situations. They suggest that a happy person tends to pay less attention to details and information for fear that over-analysing the information may affect their happy state (Ottati and Isbell, 68).
The point can be further validated because there are present examples of totalitarian behavior although the extremes are not present currently but as history continually repeats itself and governments slowly gain more power each day; the reader can make a connect to the potential problem that can arise. Orwell also gives a direct example of how the party will use total control of its citizens because of this is given mass power and importance but in a very negative way that supports the problem.
