Things may have been normal for any person belonging to the party but
strange for me. The first thing I see at the beginning of the book is
that while doing my morning exercise I thinks of the relationship of
Oceania with Eurasia and Eastasia. I realize that the party History
tells that Oceania had been always enemies with Eurasia and in
alliance with Eastasia but that’s not true. Another strange thing i
thought since been in the party was the fact that Big Brother appear
in 1930 even though he was not ever heard since 1960. Also Winston
starts remembering the time were he caught the party lying in the
1960s. Some things might be strange and we don’t understand it but as
well as everyone said the book was a type of warning for us. A warning
to take action and to do something about it even though there are many
manipulations in the world that might damage us.
I most certainly agree with Winston. As long the human spirit is alive there is absolutely no regime that can stop us from being who we are. But the ultimate goal of the party is to eliminate this flame inside our souls. This is why they are successful in staying in power, because there are no martyrs to idolize. This belief is certainly applicable today. I think this principle is alive every single day when people around the world say no to abuses of all kinds. This belief is what has kept humanity in constant evolution. Without this spirit we would all be machine like bodies, as in 1984, that aim for nothing more than what they are supposed to be. This spirit is what makes us achieve greatness. Malala Yousafzai is the living example of this. Her beliefs alone have marked a complete generation. She stood up for her thoughts and defeated the bariors of oppression. So Winston is correct, no matter how harsh or extreme the regimes might be, as long as the human spirit remains intact, there is always a way to defeat them.
