1984 Invasion of Privacy
Transcript of 1984 Invasion of Privacy
Invasion of Privacy
By: Mathew Tovar, Kiana Cenizal, Jiggy Atienza, and David Essex
Winston can't move around without the telescreen watching him. They are watching and listening to everything you say and do. There are only a few places in Oceania that isn't being watched but you have to be careful not to be followed or get caught. In Winston's room, the telescreen can see everything but the little desk in the corner, where he hides the diary. When Julia and Winston wanted to meet up, they had to meet up outside the country where they wouldn't get caught. You still could get caught because Big Brother had some kids as spies, spying for him around Oceania.
1984 Invasion of Privacy
"It was terribly dangerous to let your thoughts wander when you were in any public place or within range of a telescreen. The smallest thing could give you away. A nervous tic, an unconscious look of anxiety, a habit of muttering to yourself--anything that carried with it the suggestion of abnormality, of having something to hide. In any case, to wear an improper expression on your face...; was itself a punishable offense” (Orwell 55)
"Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two makes four. If that is granted, all else follows." (Orwell 84)
Privacy is the state or condition of being free from being observed or disturbed by other people or the state of being free from public attention. In real life, you actually have a lot of privacy from the people around you. There are many places you can go and be alone without being watched, but there are also many places that people are in your business. It can be very annoying when people invade your privacy, your definition of invasion of privacy is something like your little or older siblings going into your room without permission or your parents going through your phone.
, by George Orwell, is about a citizen named Winston Smith that lives in a dystopian society that openly spies on it's citizens named Oceania. When the dictator of Oceania (Big Brother) discovers that one of his citizens is working against him. He captures, tortures, and eventually beats them into submission and ends up making them love Big Brother. They think that they have made their own decision when it comes to liking Big Brother, when in actuality, they have made no decision of their own and have been brainwashed to liking Big Brother.
The article has similarities to George Orwell's book
because in America today, the government has been caught spying on it's citizens via listening in on phone calls. In Orwell's book, the government of Oceania spies on it's citizens in similar ways to determine if they are loyal to the country. The article explains how the government is spying on our phone calls to see if they kind find anything that seems like it would harm or put people in danger. Both the book and article explain how people are watching us but, they do it for similar reasons, to see if they're loyal or if they're going to rebel.
"Do it to Julia! Do it to Julia! Not me! Julia! I don't care what you do to her. Tear her face off, strip her to the bones. Not me! Julia! Not me!" (Orwell 289)
This kind of thing is happening today in several places, one of those places is America. Although The Barack Obama administration may not be kidnapping less than loyal citizens and beating them into mental submission, they are doing some of the less brutal things Big Brother was doing in
, for instance, spying on them. The NSA, in affiliation with,The Obama Administration has been caught spying on several Verizon phone calls to see if American citizens are doing any secret illegal acts. In
the reason for the government to spy on us is for the same reason, however, they spy on them openly and through not-so-hidden cameras. The result is also much different as in Oceania the criminals are beaten into mental-submission, while in America any enamies of the state would be put to death or jailed

"In the far distance a helecopter skimmed down between the roofs, hovered for an instant like a blue bottle, and darted away with a curving flight. It was the police potrol, snooping into people's windows." (Orwell 2)
"The Obama Administration ha been caught spying on the Verizon phone calls of tens of millions of Americans. The spying effort specifically targeted Americans living on U.S. soil." (Washington 1)
