V's Speech

In James McTeigue’s movie (V for Vendetta) script “V’s Speech” (2005), V, the main character, asserts that “… there is something terribly wrong with this country…” (2) and his speech argues how and why the country is not right and what the citizens of London have to do for fixing this problem. V develops his ideas by exposing government (“… the truncheon may be used in lieu of conversation…”), blaming people (“… if you’re looking for the guilty, you need only look into a mirror.”), and calling to action (“… I ask you to stand beside me…”). Using an example from the day (November the fifth), he encourages the London citizens in order to stand up to government (“… and together we shall give them the fifth of November that shall never, ever be forgot”) and to change the society (“… a great citizen… his hope was to remind the world that fairness, justice, and freedom are more than words, they are perspectives.”) The target audience of V’s speech is the citizens of London and the society (“Good morning, London”) and bringing to get them encourage in serious and calm tones with using the words apologize, important, suggest, and remind.

Winston Archetype

O'Brien says that Winston is the last human because Winston knows what is wrong with his society which should be defeated; as Winston said, expressions make proles human beings and he expressed what he thought and felt while O'Brien tortured him. Winston said that two plus two is four but O'Brien and Big Brother said two plus two makes five; they believed that controlling people's mind can change and control everything. Big Brother did not let them have free wills what every people must have. Winston thought that one day people will defeat destroy them by their lives.

O'Brien as a Victim

People who read a book would believe that O'Brien is a betrayer because he was really a Inner Party member not a member of Brotherhood; however, O'Brien is a victim in some ways. O'Brien spent his time for Winston; he said, "... you are in my keeping. For seven years I have watched over you. Now the turning-point has come." (201) On the evidence of this, O'Brien wasted his time for waiting to contact with Winston as a member of Brotherhood because he did not try to contact before. There are other ways to assert power but O'Brien believed that only way to assert his power is by making people suffer; he said, "Power is in inflicting pain and humiliation." (220) This way can lead proles against Big Brother.
