21. 1984 by George Orwell *spoilers*

Post  samurailynn on Thu Nov 12, 2009 12:22 am

This one was interesting.

I really didn't like the end though. I don't feel like a person could really be changed the way the main character was. I guess the premise is that the whole society was sort of brainwashed, and that no one has any way to keep any evidence of anything contrary to what the government says.

There's also the issue of the proletarians (proles). I think they represent the lower working class of most societies. But the lower working class of most societies aren't as slow and dumb as the proles are made out to be. I've known a lot of lower class people who are still interested in what's going on in the government and that still do what they can to change things or keep things working.

Or maybe not enough of one.

Also, an interesting note. That is an episode of Star Trek TNG that parallels the last portion of 1984. Bonus points to anyone who's seen it.
