A New Ending For Chapter/Section 2 (1984)

Winston stood in the corridor of the ministry in which he worked. He was getting suspicious vibes from paranoia that was antagonizing him. This paranoia had originated from the possession of his diary, He was intending to pursue thought-crime in his new diary, and he knew from the get-go, thought crime is not a possibility of death, it is death. He counted himself a dead-man, as his fate had seemed to already be entailed. Big Brother is everywhere, and his inevitable doom had attempted to come sooner than expected. The ongoing surveillance found Winston breaking the law by purchasing the diary. His face was not found on camera, rather his defining features had given him away. The thought-police knocked on Winston's door, and forcefully searched his living area, as they were still not sure if Winston was the culprit in the situation. Winston did not say anything, for there was the possibility of self-incrimination. They never did find the diary, for Winston hid it in a passageway. This passageway would break the brainwashing that was drawn upon Winston in the future. It was a small light in a dark room. Winston promptly picked up his journal from the inner-ground passageway to where he had found his journal, and recalled a dream of his, to where he would meet a strange man who would show him the suspected corruption that Winston had suspected in this society. Winston had a strange feeling that this passageway would be the way to this moment, for it would lead to this place. Maybe, just maybe he could find out the truth about so many things, like his parents for example. He took his diary, and did not attempt to right in it, yet. He wasn't brave enough yet.

Ideals Of Freedoms (1984)

Freedom, a bold word that exhibits humane culture throughout the world. Freedom promotes several characteristics that gives humanity it's true spirit. Examples of true freedom are everywhere, however some would argue this statement. Democracy, authority, individualism, free speech and press, as well as privacy are basic entities, that, realistically should define freedom at its best, but are the so called examples of freedoms under these guidelines. In the United States, as well as most all first-world, second-world, and third-world countries, sacrifice freedom in return for authority. Allegations of NSA surveillance in the United States has sparked mass controversy among its inhabitants. The NSA is alleged to "spy" on users of the internet to monitor terrorism as of 9/11 (one of their more prominent reasons for surveillance). If one were to look at a more broad and casual basis, they would find that freedom is restricted by the common authority. There is not much debate about the common authority, for they are a necessity for the common good and the overall safety for the people, but they are still a restriction on freedom. Although this is digging in deep, societies in which the common authority is enforced with minimal corruption and a credible base, do promote a place to where one could express individualism, just one ideal of freedom. Among all the rights awarded from the Bill of Rights of the Constitution. Freedom, is widely promoted among countries like the United States and other well established countries, however another part of the world is dictated by a harsh regime of authority that restricts freedom as an entity. The most extreme example of these type of countries and societies is North Korea, the closest country to a dystopian society. North Korea, in effect, is an anti-freedom society, free speech is not tolerated among every ideal of freedom, including, individualism, democracy, freedom of press, and privacy are all restricted to an extent. Comparing 1984 to reality, it is easy to comprehend that "1984" may not just be fiction, it can be non-fiction in some instances, due to the pollution of the dystopian-esk societies of the worlds. No matter how you flip the coin, one would understand that pure freedom is restricted on a spectrum of two extremes, whilst still widely apparent or dissipated among the world's different societies.
