Kalyn Stricklett 1984 by George Orwell is not relevant in today's society because the society that 1984 portrays is controlled by communism. -"Winston loathed this exercise, which sent shooting pains all the way from his heals to his buttocks and often ended by bringing on another coughing fit," (1984,40) One of the examples that shows communism is when Winston is forced to exercise every morning against his will. "Communism doesn't work because people like to own stuff" (Frank Zappa) "Communism is like Prohibition, it's a good idea but it won't work."-Will Rogers -There is no relevance to the book in today's society because
people today have free will and the characters didn't in 1984. "The Thought Police would get him just the same. He had committed-the essential crime that contained all others in itself. Thoughtcrime, they called it" (1984, 22) In the novel 1984 the people didn't have free will like we have today in 2012. In 1984 every aspect of people's lives were controlled by Big Brother. Today the government can't control our thoughts or most of our actions unless the actions have the potential to be harmful.
