RE: Help me with 1984 assigment
- Why do you think the Party discourages love and emotional interaction between humans? Where do we see moments of true human emotion in the novel, and why do they seem significant? Similarly, where do we see moments of callousness (even from Winston)?
- Would you rather live under a totalitarian government that ensures everyone’s life will be peaceful and free from crime and inequality, or under a democratic government whose freedoms may encourage violence, inequality, and crimes?
2. I would prefer to live in a democratic society. In a totalitarian society, everything is controlled and limited. I enjoy the freedoms of a democratic society even if it can lead to crime and violence. No form of government is perfect which is why I would prefer a democratic government where I have freedom and some crime than a totalitarian where I have no freedom and no crime.
