    What is the aspect of 1984 that you have chosen as inspiration for your political cartoon? Why did you choose this aspect? What is your purpose or call to action? I chose to focus on the phrase “Proles and animals are free.” By lowering proles to the same level as animals, the Party alienates its members from the proles, controlling both groups. The Party members are unable to rebel without the help of proles, according to Winston, and the proles lack the organization and motivation to do so. Additionally, I focused on the Party slogan “Freedom is slavery.” When combined to the previous phrase, there is an apparent irony. Not only is the statement itself an oxymoron, but when applied to the previous statement, it implies that the proles are…

    Little Brother, Big Issue Big Brother. Defined by Merriam Webster as “An all-powerful government or organization monitoring and directing people's actions,” Big Brother exerts its dominance in George Orwell’s 1984 and completely shapes the dynamic of the society. Unfortunately, this is not just some fairytale power. Big Brother still exists in the modern world today, though it may not be as apparent or extreme as it is depicted in the novel. Around the world totalitarian governments still…

They are just cogs in the inner party’s machine. An exemplary prole would be the women singing that Winston brings…

    So there's this girl I often see after "classes" and she's even in the same troop with me. I don't know why, but recently every time I see her I get this feeling. I don't know to describe it except for a pain in my chest and somewhere a lower. She's nothing special: brown hair in a ponytail low on her head, round face, average height and build, hazel eyes, not exceptionally large or small chest but, large enough that it's noticeable. I hate her. It was drilled into us since we reached of age…

    claustrophobic surroundings become much more inviting. Right as the light reaches its apex, however, it suddenly extinguishes, as though it were never there. This light is an excellent allegory for the symbolic use of the prole woman in 1984. Throughout 1984, the Prole Woman, whom Winston and Julia view outside of the antique shop, represents hope with her happiness and joy in her difficult and challenging life, freedom with her beautiful singing, that by the standards of her society is…
