Decent Essays
A society based on hate will not survive, nor will it flourish and the book 1984 by George Orwell is a prime example of it. I think Winston was right in the argument he had with O’Brien because like he said in his diary, “I understand HOW: I don’t understand WHY”(Orwell 80). I think what he meant by that is he can see how people think a society can survive off of hate, but he wants to why would anybody, that have their own emotions and life would wanna live in a society of hate? When O’Brien says “only power, pure power”(Orwell 272), he really thinks power itself will rule anything, but if more people like Winston and Julia, people that think for themselves start realizing that they can make a change and if that happens it won’t be a society
