1984 Quote

"Never Again"

"Never again will you be capable of love, or friendship, or joy of living, or laughter, or curiosity, or courage, or integrity. You will be hollow. We shall squeeze you empty, and then we shall fill you with ourselves" (256). ~ book 3, Ch.2

I feel that this quote is significant to what is happening in the world now. ISIS wants to strike fear in to the citizen of Europe and the Middle East. ISIS took away the joy of living for many people. They destroyed the lives of thousands of people. They left people hollow with the memories of terror. The freedom people had is now gone. In 1984 the freedom of many people was taken. Their privacy and was gone, they could not act like themselves. Instead they had to act like robots, everyone had to think the same thing and look the same way. Like ISIS the people were robbed of their joy and their humanity. In 1984 humanity was frowned upon, many people started to think how the government wanted them to think. Their natural human emotions were gone. Like big brother, ISIS never again wanted people to live joyfully, they wanted to control the way people think and their actions. They stuck fear into everyone around the world.
