He is also a nonconformist. They are interested only in perpetual oppressive power for the Party.

1984 characters

Oceania, Eurasia and Eastasia are not countries in the traditional sense of the world, they are conglomerates of power in which infallible and all-powerful Big Brothers rule. This is the future. The example essays in Kibin's library were written by real students for real classes.

He betrays Julia while being tortured and comes out feeling nothing but benevolent love for Big Brother.

We wonder what the Party would be so worried about people learning that they'd go to this length to cover their tracks, but then again, freedom of the press isn't exactly the norm in a dystopian society. Winston represents the struggle between good and bad forces, and there is no mistaking where the lines are drawn. Why, indeed, would European countries agree to have nuclear missiles placed on their soil, knowing very well that the Soviet Union would retaliate; why did Japan agree to ''voluntary'' reductions in exports and liberalization of its import regulations, knowing that these measures would hurt their own economy? And, yes! They are interested only in perpetual oppressive power for the Party. Even before he begins an affair with Julia, he develops a rapport with the seemingly harmless Mr Charrington, who sells him a diary and a distinctive coral ornament. To become a world government, the Security Council of the United Nations must be transformed in an executive body that can call on the armed forces of its member states to impose its will, deter the nations from violence, and return the national borders as they were before the conflict. Did we not hear recently that more and better weapons mean a more secure world peace? Kibin does not guarantee the accuracy, timeliness, or completeness of the essays in the library; essay content should not be construed as advice. It was almost as in his dream. Et Tu, O'Brien? He represents the feelings in every human being, and it is for this reason that a reader hopes that things will change. It does not resemble Oceania in which Winston lived. He starts questioning the wisdom of Big Brother and moves hopefully toward his own liberation. They seem to divide the world into three zones of influence.

Since he keeps a written journal of his dislike for Big Brother, he believes that The Party officials already know his secret and it is only a matter of time before the Thought Police come breaking into his door.

When he finally is ''converted'' to believe in and to love Big Brother, another slave is born, another cog is placed in the machinery of the State, the last man in Europe is dead.

But the free countries know very well that, in the end, limits are placed on their freedom. It's shocking, but effective. Believing they have met a kindred spirit, Winston and Julia join the Brotherhood.

Winston smith age

In our , Big Brother will not conquer the world. World order and peace cannot be established if the nations of the world are not willing to solve their conflicts without the use of violence; if the world powers are not willing to abandon their expansionist aims to reduce simultaneously their nuclear arsenal, and reverse the buildup of conventional weapons; if the industrial nations are not willing to transfer some of their technological know-how to underdeveloped countries, if the people and their leaders are not willing to moderate their religious, ethnic, cultural and national fervor for the well-being of the others and the peaceful coexistence of all the peoples of the world. It is mentioned that he has a wife, from whom it seems he has become estranged. Winston meets a mysterious woman named Julia , a fellow member of the Outer Party who also bears resentment toward the party's ways; the two become lovers. However, the warnings of George Orwell are more than ever relevant. When he finally is ''converted'' to believe in and to love Big Brother, another slave is born, another cog is placed in the machinery of the State, the last man in Europe is dead. Keeping a diary or any literary material is forbidden, because The Party understands the repercussions of having intellectuals around. Winston is an Outer Party member, which is basically this story's version of a middle class.

And, yes! So, like a bag of chips stuck in a vending machine, Orwell comes back around to ruin our day Week?
