A review of george orwells 1984

In addition, Orwell was wise to set his dystopia in a recognizable location and in a near future that might hit close to home for readers. Because of demand the promoters have threatened to add even more shows Orwell had no feel for the future, and the displacement of the story is much more geographical than temporal.

Living standards[ edit ] The society of Airstrip One and, according to "The Book", almost the whole world, lives in poverty: Remember the occasional person singing off key is not me oh sure.

Consequently, the system of oppression by two-way television simply will not work. Ruined cities and towns are common: The great Orwellian contribution to future technology is that the television set is two-way, and that the people who are forced to hear and see the television screen can themselves be heard and seen at all times and are under constant supervision even while sleeping or in the bathroom.
