Dangers Of Torture In 1984

Satisfactory Essays
This shows how even the most rebellious people in Oceania can fall victim to torture and brainwashing at the hands of this inhumane government. Prolonged torture can influence anyone to do unthinkable acts. Eventually, just the threat of torture is sufficient enough to make Winston desert his once defiant thoughts. It is a truly horrible moment for the citizens when Winston succumbs to the Party’s torture, and is ultimately eliminated by the Party. Taking a little ounce of hope of freedom for Oceania with him. Granted, it brings the story full circle in warning the reader about how far a government is willing to go in order to maintain power over its citizens.
