The Dictator

Displease and die

" Our job to report the news, not fabricate it. That's the government's job."

Evey heard this from Dascomb, head of the propaganda branch of the government. He said it as they were watching a live news cast. She was telling him how the news caster did not believe the story she was reporting. It was obvious to everyone there that the story had been made up. The media will announce anything that the government tells them to. Dystopian leaders will do whatever it takes, even lie about things, to keep the people on their side.

Writing

In language arts we must write in MLA.

Must create the perfect piece of prose.

Writing at least once every day,

Pieces of literature become my foes.

Wasting time trying to brainstorm.

The allotted time is very small,

But coherent thoughts will not form.

Need to finish before the end call.

When citing you must use the last name,

To plagiarize is wrong,

But paraphrasing is not the same.

Do this instead and an essay won't take long.

Free writing is best,

But it is never used as a test.

Slipknot All Hope Is Gone

Lyrics to ALL HOPE IS GONE by slipknot

The state of the nation violation
A broken promise is as good as a lie
The hell is humongous
The Devil's among us
And we will burn 'cause we won't unite

What are we conceding for our freedom?
Why does anybody think we need 'em?
Well I would rather fight than let another die
We're the problem but we're also the solution

ALL HOPE IS GONE

If you want it come and take it from me
If you think you can you still don't know me
Let me tell you man I said it, I meant it
And I will always have the right to defend it

50 seconds, 100 murders
The bill of rights is a bill of sale
What will you do when your war is over?
What will you do when your system fails?

We have made the present obsolete
What do you want? What do you need?
We'll find a way
WHEN ALL HOPE IS GONE

We've seen the fall of the elite
Bury your life, take your disease
We'll end the world
WHEN ALL HOPE IS GONE

We have made the present obsolete
What do you want? What do you need?
We'll find a way
WHEN ALL HOPE IS GONE

We've seen the fall of the elite
Bury your life, take your disease
We'll end the world
WHEN ALL HOPE IS GONE

The wretched are the wounded
The hungry starve to death
In a place where no-one goes
The air itself is a final breath

So discontinue
The Antiseptic Care Charade
As a cry of justice comes
A malignant fire fades

I am the reason your future suffers
I am the hatred you won't embrace
I am the worm of a pure gestation
I am the remedy spit in my face

All your laws and rules are outdated
All your subjects are killing the kings
I could rattle off a million other reasons why
But does it matter when the only thing we love will die?

We have made the present obsolete
What do you want? What do you need?
We'll find a way
WHEN ALL HOPE IS GONE

We've seen the fall of the elite
Bury your life, take your disease
We'll end the world
WHEN ALL HOPE IS GONE

We have made the present obsolete
What do you want? What do you need?
We'll find a way (we'll find a way)
WHEN ALL HOPE IS GONE

We've seen the fall of the elite
Bury your life, take your disease
We'll end the world (we'll end the world)
WHEN ALL HOPE IS GONE
WHEN ALL HOPE IS GONE
WHEN ALL HOPE IS GONE
WHEN ALL HOPE IS GONE


All Hope Is Gone- 1984 Theme Song

The song “All hope is gone" by slipknot is a good theme song for 1984 because the lyrics resemble points in the story. For example, when it says "we will burn 'cause we won't unite" it's the same as the proles in 1984 and how they keep suffering because they won't unite to overthrow the party. Another example is how it says " the state of the nation violation", it's like Oceania and how messed up it is. The 11nth stanza is practically describing the relationship between Winston and the big brother and what he represents. Also the chorus line " we'll end the world, WHEN ALL HOPE IS GONE" it's like how if there is no more hope, no one else to oppose the party they will end the world as they knew it and create another in their image.

Football as a dystopia

Football is clearly a dystopian trend. It is dystopian because football fans gather outside the stadium during a football game just to tailgate. They look down on anyone that doesn't like their team. They are quick to anger when it comes to rival fans bad- mouthing their team. They purchase hundreds of dollars’ worth of team apparel.
