No one can control this loss of freedom. People are born and rights and freedoms are instantly lost. Even though Aldous Huxley’s story, Brave New World and George Orwell’s story 1984 portrayed different predictions of what society could be in the future both stories shared a common loss of freedom of their people because of restrictions, the governments overstepping power, and brainwashing techniques. In both stories there was evidence of restrictions that lead to the loss of freedom of the people in their societies. One of the main pieces of evidence in George Orwell’s novel 1984 was the use of constant surveillance of their people with telescreens and spies.
However the government is corrupt, they are constantly being watched, consistent fights are happening between factions and the people are being told how to live.

Possibly the greatest vulnerability was 'the weakness within' - the constitution gave the President, the states and the military too much control, whilst proportional voting meant that the Reichstag was separated and weak. There was no single party in complete control and parties had to join together to form a government. However, each party had different goals which caused in-fighting and instability making it difficult for the Reichstag, with its many changes in power, to govern effectively. This was reflected in 376 political assassinations up to 1923. From the start there was economic instability because of the cost of World War One and there was widespread disillusion within the German people.
Big Brother is the example of all the ideals of the totalitarian party. In compare to Big Brother, Winston Smith keeps the idea of democracy underlines freedom; he has to hide his own thought because the Big Brother's party will punish him by death if the party finds it out. George Orwell evaluates of Big Brother's society by describing it as a dark and a gloomy place. It warns that people might believe that everyone must become slaves to the government in order to have an orderly society, but at the expense of the freedom of the people The super-country of Oceania is in a constant state of war in which the novel 1984 is set in, and bomb explosions are omnipresent.

nality theor Personality Theory PSY/405 25 June, 2012 Jeffery Larsen Personality Theory Personality theory is a group of assumptions about personality thrown together. Personality is like a fingerprint, in the sense that everyone has a fingerprint, but you will never find any two that are the same. Each individual has different influences in their lives to affect the personality that defines them.

No matter the study conducted the outcome will always vary because everyone is different.
A dystopian government is defined as being an aggressive and oppressive government that maintains order through control of all aspects of its citizen’s lives; this includes eliminating their rights to privacy. This is how the communist party of Oceania worked in George Orwell’s 1984. In 1984 the main character Winston often expresses displeasure and sometimes paranoia about the fact that he can’t say what he wants due to the dystopian dynamics of the party; “you had to live … in the assumption that every sound you made was overheard, every movement scrutinized” in comparison people in a western country like Denmark where you can do what you want in your home and the rights of privacy are accepted. Because of this people see it as a basic human right, thus when said people read dystopian novels like 1984 that is as they find that it is a privilege and that they are lucky. Other than allowing people to appreciate various privileges, dystopian art and expression bear marks of a long and interesting history as it derives from the dream of creating a perfect world, also known as a utopia.
Whereas a dystopian society in which everything is unpleasant or bad, and consists of totalitarian leadership. In the novel 1984 by George Orwell, we consider it to be a dystopian novel, based on a few things. Because in dystopia, life consists of human’s misery, poverty, and violence and so on, it is controlled by a government that can do no wrong. If any one individual tries to degrade or go against the ruler, they will be punished and the people of the society know this. In this case, Winston Smith is described as ‘thin’ and ‘frail’ which shows us that he really is powerless, both physically “Winston stopped writing, partly because he was suffering from cramp” and mentally “Winston kept his back turned to the telescreen.
D-503 has the same reaction to this idea that many of the citizens would most likely have, which is a dread of anything that might sacrifice their comfort and safety, even with the possible gain of a truly free existence. The revolutionaries in We failed to instigate an uprising against the Benefactor because he had already lulled them into a false sense of security and comfort, leaving them helpless to any inhumane law the One State might force upon them. The society in We, the One State, is run mainly by the Table of Hours. The Table is almost worshipped by the citizens, “[...] I feel like making up poems or prayers (the same thing). Ah, if only I were a poet, I would rightly exalt you, O Table [...]” (12).
So, when the Party portrays the past a hellish world full of poverty, destruction and slavery - the people will begin to believed the Party has rescued them from this, especially when the party feeds them more lies about all the things they have done to help the people. Memory is also a powerful tool. The people who lived before the revolution would know of the world before and so in turn know the Party has done very little for them. This is why the Party keeps a strict control of things like history textbooks and personal mementos. By destroying records of the past, they're also limiting the memories of those people
This wherein lies the inception of The Walking Dead. As stated before, Reality TV is very shallow in the realm of story telling because these type of shows try to present a false sense of “reality” by making up plot-lines with the show’s “stars” to make the subject matter interesting. Reality TV is highly impersonal, sure we could relate to some of the people that appear on the shows, but we wouldn’t care much about learning more about their background, their history. This is where The Walking Dead shines so brightly and captivate audiences. The story revolves around a group of survivors after a viral outbreak kills a great bulk of the country’s population, reanimating them into “walkers,” ferocious zombies
