If everything in the world said that something happened, then the lie would pass into history and would become the truth. Whatever the party holds to be truth, is truth. It is impossible to see reality except by looking through the eyes of the Party. This is saying that everything the Party says is the truth and that everyone should listen to it. If you don’t listen to the truth, then you can’t see the reality of what the world is. If you want to understand the world, then you must be with the Party. The world is a blur without them.
These quotes show how the Party has manipulated the truth so that the entire super state believes every word they say. By doing this everyone will do what they want. However some people are already thinking against the Party and they are the sane ones but they will be the ones that will most likely die. BP3 Orwell also challenges the audience with his dystopian society with the attitude of love. The old civilizations claimed that they were founded on love or justice. Ours is founded upon hatred. * This is saying that the entire world is based around hatred.
This can be backed up with the two minutes hate and the hatred that people have for the Party. * There will be no loyalty, except loyalty towards the Party. There will be no love, except the love of Big Brother. There will be no laughter, except the laugh of triumph over a defeated enemy. There will be no art, no literature, no science. 1984’s society has been challenged in a way that no love ever exists. People are not allowed to love another person. The only way that people are allowed to marry is so that they can produce for the Party.
They only believe in the Party and listen to what they tell people to do. Nothing exists anymore except that Party and everything that they do. “Confession is not betrayal. What you say or do doesn’t matter: only feelings matter. If they could make me stop loving you-that would be the real betrayal. ” This is saying that the only way that people in Oceania can stop loving someone is if that Party ‘brainwash’ them so that they won’t love them anymore. That is the only way that people can betray someone. Never again will you be capable of ordinary human feeling.
Everything will be dead inside you. Never again will you be capable of love, or friendship, or joy of living, or laughter, or curiosity, or courage, or integrity. You will be hollow. We shall squeeze you empty and then we shall fill you with ourselves. This quote is saying that the society of 1984 has no feeling for anything. Everyone is straight faced and just does what the Party want them to do. The line “Never again will you be capable of love” just says that the world can become a world has place of hatred for one another.
This definitely challenges the audiences on love. This novel has very little love in it and it makes us challenge what love actually is and why it is such a special thing for us as humans to have. CONCLUSION These points that have been made so that the audience of 1984 challenges their values and attitudes. The novel explores the values of truth and freedom and the attitude of love. We see that after reading the novel how much we value these things in our world and that we should be grateful for what we have in life.
