Brave New World
Independent Study Project
George Orwell?s Nineteen Eighty-Four and Aldous Huxley?s Brave New World are two novels that portray totalitarianism. Hitler used this kind of power to rule Germany during the 1930?s and 1940?s. Brave New World and Nineteen Eighty-Four are very similar to the totalitarianism used during this regime. Government control is an important topic because if society doesn?t change its ways, we risk becoming a fascist state. The authors of these novels are trying to portray to their readers warning signals of the potential dangers of totalitarianism.
Totalitarianism, is a centralized dictatorial form of government requiring complete subservience to the state, a person advocating such a system. In Nineteen Eighty-Four, Big Brother was the ” Friend of the People” , the Inner Party Leader. His face was projected all day long through numerous forms of media.”On each landing opposite the lift shaft, the poster with the enormous face gazed from the wall.” His slogan “Big Brother is Watching You” was posted everywhere. The citizens of Oceania were not allowed to think, if they did so it was called Double Think. Double Think
