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
Eleven people were killed and the radicals were given a huge propaganda boost by referring to the event as ‘Peterloo’, in a grim analogy with the Duke of Wellington's famous victory over Napoleon at Waterloo four years earlier. This shows that the government did think Britain was on the verge of a revolution if they had to have authorities to disperse the crowd by force.

The crisis was averted.
In his speech, Obama uses many language techniques to convince Americans to stand up to their representatives to tighten gun laws. Both Moore and Obama use a range of techniques to position their audiences to believe the reality they share. One of the people Michael Moore chooses to interview is James Nicholas, brother of Terry Nicholas who blew up the Oklahoma city council centre.

Moore emphasises this by selecting a part of the interview a part where he follows James into his room to see the under his pillow, he places subtitles for this scene to show the audience the conversation they have as James puts the gun to his head as a joke.
(Orwell, 36) Also, “‘Steamer!’ he yelled. ‘Look out, guv’nor! Bang over’ead! Lay down quick!’” (Orwell, 87) describes the critical state of how the citizens can live like this (The steamer in the 2nd quote means bomb).

He ended up getting attacked by an angry mob within one minute of starting his speech. Very interesting ideas about free speech they have down there.

The first mention of this absence of privacy is contained in the caption below the poster of Big Brother that reads “Big Brother is Watching You” (5).

These camera are recording our every move, are they really used for our protection or are they used against us? Now days, television which have inbuilt spy-camera that are strikingly similar to the ones shown in 1984 by Gorge Orwell are being sold around the world.
