Hero?

'You are the last man,' said O'Brien. 'You are the guardian of the human spirit.(O’Brien) What O’Brien means by this statement is that Winston is the only person to realize that the party is wrong to rewrite the past, control the people and to restrict people from thinking in what they believe in. Winston is the person or only man in considering in destroying the party. Society is so fearful of the party that they believe in anything that the party says. This is the reason Winston is humanity; he believes that there is still a chance to restore what was once lost, being human. When O’Brien says “you are the guardian of the human spirit” he means that Winston is the guide to enlighten society and break the party.

For generations we have been taught to obey an order from a person of authority, it’s your decision to obey that order, you control what you do. So why do we choose to obey authority; fear, consequences? Mingrims experiment is an example of how we are so obedient to obey an order from “a person of authority” not even to realize what they are doing is wrong. Stanford prison experiment was an experiment on how good people turn into bad people simply because they have a taste of authority, Abu Ghraib prison; USA military tortured prisoners because they were told to do so. The Mingrim's experiment, Stanford Prison experiment and Abu Ghraib all relate to 1984, they all have to do with humanity; each one these examples had two options obey the authority or choose to be human and think for yourself.
