NORTH KOREA VS 1984
EVERYDAY ACTIVITIES THAT ARE ILLEGAL IN NORTH KOREA
Similarily to the North Korean government, the concept of propaganda is demonstrated in the novel
1984
"WAR IS PEACE, FREEDOM IS SLAVERY, IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH.
" (Orwell, 29)
This quotation in the novel is the party slogan and is posted on every book, banner, and poster. The head of Big Brother is on their coin
In 1984, propaganda is used in such a way to promote hate towards Goldstein and create love towards Big Brother
Propaganda is displayed throughout in the novel
PROPAGANDA
: Information, ideas, or rumors deliberately spread widely to help or harm a person, group, or place
North Korea spreads propaganda through media. All messages are controlled by Kim Jong Un. The media is only displaying one sided thoughts which causes a very biased opinion that is being distributed throughout North Korea
Majority of the propaganda is to manipulate and convince as many people as possible to join the military
PROPAGANDA: NORTH KOREA

North Korea's government is a dictatorship. This type of government involves political authority that is manipulated by a person or political entity. Kim Jong Un is a person of authority that makes harsh laws for the people of North Korea and uses the method of propaganda, harsh punishment and the lack of freedom to maintain control.

NORTH KOREA: PROPAGANDA MACHINE
1984 PROPAGANDA CAMPAIGN
Oppressing
Kim Jong Un under the party called Supreme People’s Assembly (SPA)

Oppressed
The citizens of North Korea are denied the most basic human rights
North Korea is controlled by a dictator. The leader of this country is Kim Jong Un who inherited his father's position in 2011
1984 is set in near future Oceania. During this time, this country is in a constant state of war. The living conditions are poor, wages are low and everywhere is dilapidated. One cannot expect any privacy anywhere during this period, as there are monitors watching all the time causing everyone to feel trapped.
“If you want to picture the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face-forever.” (Orwell, 39)
Where is North Korea?
east Asia
shares border with 3 countries: China, Russia, South Korea
borders Pacific Ocean

Split of North and South Korea
after WWII, Korea struggled through a Cold War
agreement was reached: Russians controlled North, Americans controlled South
Russia is communist, America is democracy
Kim Jong Un uses oppression so that he can maintain absolute power in the country he rules
He demands full cooperation by all his citizens, and anyone who does not comply will be severely punished
Another reason as to why he is so strict when it comes to the countries rules is so he can try to prove to his people that he can fill his father’s footsteps and “successfully operate” North Korea
1984
Must only love Oceania and not any other nation
Propaganda are only about the love for Big Brother and the idolization of political parties and the hate against Goldstein
Completely oblivious to the outside world as it monitored 24/7
It's okay to show support to another country
Some propaganda will show others how North Korea is the "best" country
They know what is going on in other countries but are told to hate them
Promotes hate towards other nations/people
Must praise the people that are in power
Anyone who rebels is persecuted and tortured
Government brainwashes young children into idolizing the corrupt government
The leader is always on top of the political pyramid and both use propaganda to spread the word of their message
1984
SIMILARITIES
NORTH KOREA
It is evident in both the novel
1984
and in North Korea's government that oppression is similarily demonstrated by the figure of Big Brother and by dictator Kim Jong Un through the use of propaganda, harsh punishment and the lack of freedom.
THESIS
1984: CHARACTERS
LACK OF FREEDOM: NORTH KOREA
Alcohol and Sex
North Korean citizens can only drink on holidays and students are forbidden to consume alcohol
Speech
Criticism of the regime or the leadership in North Korea, if reported, is enough to make you and your family ‘disappear’ from society and end up in a political prison camp
Religion
Organized religion is seen as a potential threat to the regime and therefore nothing apart from token churches built as a facade of religious freedom for foreign visitors are allowed

PUNISHMENTS: NORTH KOREA
Public Executions
The North Korean regime publicly executes citizens who have been accused of a variety of crimes, including petty theft

Political Prison Camps
Many people imprisoned in these camps were not guilty of any crime, but were related to someone who supposedly committed a political crime
Often they have no idea what that crime was, and even children who are born in the camps are raised as prisoners because their ‘blood is guilty’
LACK OF FREEDOM:1984
Alcohol and Sex
Sex is only used to procreate which causes marriage to be based on just procreation in order to benefit the Party instead of having a loving relationship
"Victory Gin" is given as a way to numb and manipulate people into believing that the Party is giving them the rights they want. This alcohol is limited
Speech
"If you want a picture of the future imagine a boot stamping on a human face - forever." (Orwell, 39)
The people of Oceania are patrolled by the Thought Police
The expression of feelings are forbidden because thinking can lead to going against Big Brother
Religion
"Do you believe in God, Winston?”
“No.”
“Then what is it, this principle that will defeat us?”
“I don’t know. The spirit of Man.”
“Do you consider yourself a man?”
“Yes.”
“If you are a man, Winston, you are the last man. Your kind is extinct; we are the inheritors. Do you understand that you are alone? You are outside history, you are nonexistent.”
