Smore #2 V For Vendetta.
In the fictional 2005 film V for Vendetta James Mcteigue argues in his BTN speech that, “there is something terribly wrong with this country” (Paragraph 1). Mcteigue primarily points out how the government oppresses the English citizens by saying “Systems of surveillance coercing your conformity and soliciting your submission” (Paragraph 1), Mcteigue also states the people are responsible for allowing government oppression by saying “If you’re looking for the guilty, you need only look into a mirror” (Paragraph 2), and he concludes his speech with a call to action “If you see what I see, if you feel as I feel, and if you seek as I seek, than I ask you to stand by beside me a year from tonight” (Paragraph 5). Mcteigue longs for people, in order to advance society, he states this by saying “Remind the world that fairness, justice, and freedom are more than words” (Paragraph 4). Mcteigue not only targets the people of England, he targets society as well; he began his speech with a calm apology, evolves to an inspiring call to action on his speech.
Somre #3 Macbeth as flaw or hero?
Part I: Macbeth.
I believe Macbeth was a flawed hero, because he wasn't trying to be a hero nor a good guy. He saw that there was something wrong with Duncan's monarchy, so he decided to kill him to put an end to his dystopia ruling. Macbeth had too much confidence on the witches prophecies and he truly believed he was almost immortal. His flaw was his ambition to be in power, Macbeth would do whatever it took him to be in power. He died in battle when Malcolm and his army raided the palace Malcolm decapitated Macbeth. Macbeth's death symbolized how he went mad do to his anxiety.
Part II: Divergent (Triss).
In the movie Divergent our main character Triss was our "flaw hero". She didn't question her society, until her childhood colony Amnigation was massacred by her new Dauntless colony. The "monsters" were the government who sent to kill all divergent people like Triss. Triss did not go down without a fight she built a civil army and won the war sadly this cost her, her life.
Smore #4 Winston as an archetype.
Is he the reason the party will be defeated?
Winston very may well be the spirit the people needed to defeat the party. This would be but he never expressed himself to anyone else but Julia. The only way this would be true is if he breaks free of being brain washed and escaping the thought police. So he could have been the idea the people needed but it could be too late to show it now.
O'Brien telling Winston he is last human.
When O’Brien tells Winston that he is the last human it is very deep. He does not mean physically he means mentally. This is because Winston is still thinking and trying to believe in other things he has control of his mind. Other people however do not they are somewhat brainwashed to believe and continue believing in what the party wants. That is why killing Winston was not enough they had to make him believe as well
Smore #5 O'Brien Victim or villain?
I guess we could say that O'Brien is nether or both. From my view point O'Brien is a product of society and he just does what he's told. What i have learned from previous experiments i have witness, is that people are not really evil they are just caught up in the moment. He could have been a normal human been before the so called 'revolution'. O'Brien is truly fascinating to me he sees the world the exact way this distopian society wants you to see the world. in my opinion he's more of a victim than a villain, it has been proven normal sane humans. will do incredibly brutal things to others if instructed to due so by an authority figure. this can be what Orwell was trying to show his audience. He wanted to us to see how much harm a regular human like you and i can cause so much pain in another person when told to so and the worse part is that O'Brien did all of this without second guessing himself.
Smore #6 Superbowl ad.
On February 2, 2014 in Super Bowl 48 Budweiser created an ad named Hero’s Welcome, Budweiser asserts that it supports our troops. Budweiser illustrated in the ad a U.S. soldier coming home, receiving a warm welcoming by his girlfriend, and once they get to their home town Budweiser had sponsored a parade for him where the entire town celebrated his return. Budweiser showed how they don’t only sell bear but hope, in order to advertise their product, the carriage the soldier was riding on had the Budweiser logo and almost in every camera shot the logo appeared. Budweiser targeted the people over 21 years old to purchase a Budweiser beer if you support our troops, the tone of the ad was warm, very cheerful, and joyful.
