"1984" by George Orwell
Some months ago, around March 2003, the U.S. invaded Iraq to topple Saddam and his government. Though many applaud President Bush for his attack on Iraq, many more believe this marked the beginning of a totalitarian state headed by President Bush. "All that was required of them was a primitive patriotism which could be appealed to whenever it was necessary to make them accept longer working hours or shorter rations" (Orwell 62). Through simple patriotism and deception, he began his totalitarian-like rule on us. By slowly destroying our rights, by tearing down our privacy, and by telling lies, he did things that we would have never wanted, such as war. And we still stood by him. In the book 1984, Orwell warns of the evils of totalitarian governments and the control that such a government future societies could have.
Orwell's life clearly made an impact in 1984. He was born as Eric Author Blair in Bengal, India on June 25, 1903. His father was Richard Walmesley Blair who was a civil servant to the British government. His mother was Ida Mabel Blair, the daughter of a French tradesman. His family was a lower-middle class family. (George Orwell - Biography and Works).
