1984 reflection

Tina Riddick

"Never again will you be capable of love, or friendship, or joy of living, or laughter, or curiosity, or courage, or integrity. You will be hollow. We shall squeeze you empty, and then we shall fill you with ourselves" (256) Book Ch.2


In 1984 people endured many tragic things that they will never recover from. They will stripped people from being an individuals. They turned people "hollow", people were not able to feel anything after what they encountered. They will changed them, they will never be able to be a "normal" human again. Their thoughts, dreams, and beliefs will mean nothing to them unless they are what they believe. They will torture their people and beat them down until there are empty and think nothing. They stripped their people from being an individual. They will never be able to feel any emotion ever again.
