The citizens of Oceania are made to feel the decay of the society in their own body. Winston describes having a “varicose ulcer above his right ankle”. This image explains to us how human nature is being blocked from people of Oceania causing pain and suffering. It gave us a clear image of how much power Big Brother and the Inner Party have over the society. The diction establishes the menacing nature of this society.
Through an accumulation of violent images, ‘slashed’, ‘smashed’, ‘terror’ and ‘slugging’, the lack of justice and ethicality through power exploitation is exemplified. Whilst Steinbeck depicts injustice in his contextual society due to the abuse of stature, Salles similarly presents this issue through the Chilean
The destruction caused by protesting labor workers gave the industry a bad name in society. Anger and resentment brought out violent acts among the protesters struck fear in the general public. Although the strike was ended with a grim view of railroad workers, it called attention to labor activism into the public consciousness (Schultz, 2012). Reference Schultz, K. M. (2012).

However, as the film continues the altercations in the plot become progressively more dramatic and bring out the realization of the truth that dominates society. During the final conflict when Radio Rakhim is killed by NYPD and Sal’s pizzeria is destroyed, the unrealistic cinematography that was prevalent throughout the film disappears and the harsh reality of racial conflict settles into the viewer’s emotions. This brings out feelings of disgust and sadness because the final confrontation arises over a radio and a picture on the wall. The causes of racial based disputes throughout the film are caused by trivial issues like scuffed shoes, music and pictures on the wall. Spike Lee presents the roots of the various conflicts as minor and insignificant in order to parallel the issue of racism, which is fueled by culture, background and skin colour.
Just as the scientists do, these people fid ways to trap there people into lacking a lot of things a good person would have. The violence in Winston’s world I caused by very controlling people who likes power and turns it into evil. The war with Eurasia and the killing of the people, the banishment of the population once things are being done wrong or someone doing something against regulations. This act is like a flip in the script, once the people in the population does something out of bound, it’s like they are being evil, when it’s really the other way
Miller uses the setting of the Salem Witch hunts as a contextual allegory for the McCarthy era communism paranoia. Miller explores the detrimental effect of a society in which people are forced to belong, often resulting in the isolation of people who do not conform through characters such as Proctor. Proctor, however chooses not to belong as he converses with Parris “There is a party in this church…” proctor then replies, “well I must find it and join it.” (Pg. 35 Act 1) the audience can witness the criticism conveyed to Parris, and Proctors adamant trait to uphold his own values and
He openly glorifies Cordus and laughs at those who physically accused him as well as the person who was behind the accusations. More importantly, he compares the principate to tyranny, and this is where it is imperative to take Tacitus’ background into consideration. A large amount of Tacitus' real life was during the time that Domitian, the last emperor of the Flavian Dynasty, was in control. Domitian’s administration as emperor is overwhelmingly characterized with tyranny and corruption. This negative depiction of tyranny during Tacitus’ real life influences and can explain his bitter attitude toward signs of tyranny before his day, including this trial and death of Cordus which he holds as “cause célèbre” (L&R II,
Stanley Cohen termed moral panic as a process, pointing to groups of people which are seen as threaten to the society, the version of this view stresses for breakdown of family life, threatening aggression, alcohol and drug abuse, lack of respect for others and so on, also amplified by the media and politicians, leading for stronger laws and radical changes in the contemporary society. All of those situations are pointed by Cohen as irrational as it is out of the real proportion of the actual behaviour, which is reinforced by the way in which those groups are presented by media, this presentation causes fear, labelling people as folk-devil give a sense of distinct evil rather then a normal people which does things to live as everyone does. Also there are other factors that can be considered to explain disorderly behaviour such as low intelligence, some people are inherent violent and anti-social, susceptibility or weakness, inequality. Those natural implications can be a grateful factor for how people
This quote sums up the general objective of Big Brother’s regime, ultimate control and unfaltering devotion. If citizens had their own memories, or disagreed with what they were told, they would realize how corrupt a society they were living in was and rebel against it. This is the case in Winston’s situation, he recognizes how corrupt the government is and can no longer stand to live monotonously in his society. The Party frequently changed the past to see who would
I find it disturbing, to not say disgusting, this newly found need of self-entitlement people have now. Because people find something offensive, inappropriate, stupid, demeaning or whatever it is they think of, they start rallying against whomever or whatever it is that “fulfill” these characteristics. Media outlets have fallen prey to this, but media outlets are the main cause for this uprise of self-entitled naysayers. The internet is the worst culprit of all. The internet has become the home for these naysayers, those who sit in front of a screen to simply criticize, insult, and put down whatever they see just because.
