George Orwell’s 1984 is a book for people who don’t quite care too much about the government that they are governed by. The book exemplifies the events of people getting too much control. I believe a very important aspect of this book to be focused on is the proletariat class of people, or proles, as they were called. They showed no care towards the fact they had nothing, because of the fact they had never seen anybody with more. There was not a prole who questioned authority or unfairness. The government had absolute control over everybody, and the most any of the proles cared about was the lottery, which was in reality was not winnable, or other small things that made no difference. They did not even care about how little privacy they had. The proles represent many U.S. citizens nowadays, uncaring. Though there are many people who care, there’s not enough. If enough care is not taken, our government could take more control than anyone actually wants, and there would be no end to it after that. That is what 1984 was written for, to warn about totalitarian governments and how they come to be. Not knowing or caring about the most important things like government is the most important part of this book in my opinion. Whether you knew this from the start, or didn’t care before, 1984 represents lots of great lessons for life, most importantly this one.
