Julia simply does not care about what the Party is saying to the public. She doesn’t know whether or not it’s true or false, and can’t even remember what is said half the time. For example, Winston asks to recall 4 years ago, when Oceania was fighting with Eastasia, not Eurasia, despite Party insistence that it had always been the other way around. At first, Julia tells Winston that she never paid much attention to Party propaganda, because she didn’t care who was fighting the war. It is only after several minutes of arguing with Winston that Julia can actually remember the difference. Since Julia is so far removed from a cause to rebel, she has no desire to.

Supporting Protesting Thomas Jefferson would most certainly reinforce the action of protest now in the modern day. To begin with, Thomas Jefferson would encourage protesting because of what is written in the Declaration of Independence, which he signed and wrote. For instance, this significant document states, “any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it.” Jefferson would assist these protests because he considers that people should speak up if they don’t agree to it. The people of the states should fix a problem that would do harm to their state or country. Jefferson’s statement is that all people should speak their mind and that is why he would help out the protests. His
In 1892 in St Louis, Missouri The People’s Party, or more commonly known the Populist Party was formed. The main purpose of the Populist party was to represent the labor leaders, farmers, and reformers, which focused on bank regulation, graduated income tax, and government owned railroad. Bank regulation was enforced to limit things such as restrictions and requirements, which led to better money regulation with the formation of the party. With graduated income tax, there would not be as big of a difference between the rich and the poor. Because of this the poor would not be paying as much income tax as the rich, which would eventually equal things out. Among many other things, one main goal of the populist party was to form an alliance with
Internal pleasures and emotions such as parenthood, love and sex are dangerous for the Party because “the lack of these essentials in people’s lives result in hysteria which can be transformed into war-fever and leader-worship.”(page 139) Julia creates a world of her own which can’t be altered by the Party while enjoying the simple pleasures of life. She doesn’t love the Party and sacrifice her life for the Party like she should; she develops an indifferent attitude instead. Unlike her partner Winston, she doesn’t question how the Party exists or why the party keeps all the power, she also shows no interest in the Brotherhood or engaging in anarchy acts against the party. She only finds pleasure in small acts of rebellion against the system like sneaking food or having sex and she tries to dodge the Thought Police with her enthusiastic disguise. She is an easier case to cure compared to Winston because she is somewhat integrated to the lifestyle of an average Party member except for her unorthodox leisures and has learned to survive in this system with her cunning personality and is more inclined to apply doublethink to her life unlike Winston. She is more of a survivalist, so she would be prone to give up easier compared to Winston while being cured in Room
I think that this outside quote from a comic book is a very close representation of what Julia is thinking of when asked the question of rebellion. To Julia rebellion might mean almost nothing because to her the political power that is in place is already too much of a joke to take serious.
Violently protesting the presidential election does bring notice to the protesters, but not at all in a positive way. Politicly speaking, there are many effective ways of sharing opinions and spreading your ideas peacefully. Citizens that choose to violently protest are not taken seriously and because instead of
Between the years of 1900 and 1945, America went through rough times at the start of the century. This was the time of the great depression, WWI, WWII, The Labor Movement, Women’s rights, and the start of the civil rights movement. It was very hard time to be an American if you were not a white male because of all the obstacles you had to face during this period. I feel that in times of turmoil American’s should have the right to protest peacefully as it states in the 1st amendment. The 1st amendment says “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the
The Declaration of Independence is a masterful example of protestation. It's points are made crisply and cleanly, without sounding petty or mean. The establishment of a platform to speak from is done early in the paper, convincing the reader of the rights of all humans. Having a starting point, the offenses committed by the King of Great Britain are listed. An appeal to the world of men wraps it up, pleading for acknowledgement of our new government.
the only one going against the party’s ideal beliefs, his lover Julia is also against the party. The
At first, I thought that they had the potential to rebel but everything turned upside down. I realized that they cannot oppose the Party. The Party’s effective way of oppression affects their attitudes and keeps them away from the idea of rebellion. The proles are happy under the conditions of Big Brother and they are obedient to him. If a rebellion were to happen, they would need a leader to take them to a revolution because they are not smart enough to think for themselves and make a plan against Big Brother. They are good at obeying orders, so if there would be a great leader, that person could tell them what to do. The Party is aware of this situation that's why they take all the intelligent people into the Party. So, there would be no
In the recent events of Donald Trump's campaign, there have been riots that occur at each destination. With such riots, this causes the competition to be heavily monitored as the attacks may escalate very quickly. The Democrats however, do not see such riots and are enjoying the peaceful protests that
Zetkins is a remarkable figure in history. The summary of Zetkin political accomplishments is impressive. She partook in establishing of the Second International, rose to prominence in the German Social-Demicratic Party (SPD) ran its Women Movement, edited the German socialist movement, Gleichhiet (equality) which was the only women’s paper in the Pre World War 1, and for the International Socialist Women’s Movement she was the moving spirit behind it (Quataert, 1975). Zetkin was generally recognized for her hierarchical work among working class women in Germany and socialist women throughout the world as a leading figure in the powerful German Social Democratic party. Zetkin was able to apply an effective effect on the formation of the socialist party on the women’s question and additionally to shape the mentalities of working class women in Germany and abroad toward the socialist development.
Massive protests are taking place in Hamburg, Germany as the G20 summit of some of the world's leading economies gets underway.
