The book Dealing in Hate by Michael Connors examines anti-German hate campaigns in both world wars. The film's portrayal of Gandhi as a pacifist is incorrect. Perpetual civil war also seems to prevail in various multi-racial societies. I know all about your contempt, your hatred, your disgust. This is the girl who wanted to kill me. Right in front of me.
That, compared to the world we live in is so ridiculous and unimaginable. Winston is in the worst possible position, he is in the Outer Party. Winston is in the worst possible position, he is in the Outer Party. To conclude my stance on whether Winston Smith should be considered a hero is he is not a hero at all, just the ordinary citizen living in a dystopian society. Winston was subjected to intense treatment as he went against the party and realised that nothing is more powerful than physical pain.

A landscape I've seen sometimes in a dream. O'Brien, a member of the inner Party, pretends to Smith that he is part of the Goldstein conspiracy against Big Brother. Another theory I've heard is that Goldstein is inspierd from the anarchist Emma Goldman. They want to live their lives as rebels and be unorthodox because that is how they are happy. It also acts as a metaphor for Winston's ultimately hopeless attempts at rebellion, as it is the only outward act of rebellion the character carries out during the early chapters of the book. Orwell's parallels to totalitarian regimes of the early twentieth century such as Nazi Germany and Stalin's Soviet Union, and the degree of control they maintained over their citizens, are clear.
The words first come to him in a dream and he ponders them for the remainder of the novel. When we meet Winston, these rebellious notions have clearly been festering for quite some time. Orwell insists that Winston's fate could happen to anyone, and it is for this reason that Orwell destroys Winston in the end, so that the reader may understand Orwell's warning and see that the society of 1984 never come to pass. I personally would not be willing to kill myself as to not betray the brotherhood. As a result, it keeps Winston constantly devoted to the Party, never knowing when he'll be erased by the Party, but knowing for sure that someday they will.

Book One: Chapter I Summary: Chapter I On a cold day in April of 1984, a man named Winston Smith returns to his home, a dilapidated apartment building called Victory Mansions. Winston fitted a nib into the penholder and sucked it to get the grease off. The brunette kisses Winston, and tells him that her name is Julia.

From the table drawer he took out a penholder, a bottle of ink, and a thick, quarto-sized blank book with a red back and a marbled cover. Was that a signal that I would be arrested again?
