“1984” is about a guy named Winston who lives in a world where the government controls everything. There’s no privacy, no free thinking, and no freedom. People are constantly watched and punished if they say or do something the government doesn’t like.
Winston works for the government and isn’t happy with his life. He meets a woman named Julia who helps him rebel against the government. They have a secret relationship and try to hide their thoughts and feelings.
But the government finds out what they’re doing and captures them. Winston is tortured and forced to think and say what the government wants. In the end, he gives up and accepts the government as unbeatable.
The book shows how dangerous it can be when the government has too much power and how important it is to protect freedom and privacy.
That Robert Habeck writes a foreword for it in the new edition is a disaster in my opinion.https://github.com/EmojiTwo/emojitwo
