How the KKK, Anarchists, Preaks Compare to Big Brother

Many organizations today are considered bad or "evil". Groups like the Ku Klux Klan, The Anarchy Organization, Supreme White Power, which are Skinheads and Neo-Nazis, and Phreaks are a few of these groups. These groups all have one thing in common......they somehow break the law. The Ku Klux Klan "terrorized public officials in efforts to drive them from office and blacks in general to prevent them from voting and holding office." ( Microsoft Encarta 1995 Ku Klux Klan) The "Klansmen" flogged, mutilated, or murdered their victims. Supreme White Power (SWP) or "skin heads" are somewhat like the Ku Klux Klan. The skin head groups are more local rather than the Ku Klux Klan, who all have one leader. The Anarchy Organization is totally against government. Their main idea is to be free. The reason why this organization is considered "evil" is because of bombings and activities like that from certain anarchists. Phreaks are hackers, but they don't just specialize in computers. They are also into phones and electronic things that they can rip off. As you will later see, this organization and our government strongly resemble 1984's government and the Brotherhood.

The Ku Klux Klan people haven't gotten out of the idea the black people and other foreigners are evil, which they call, "alien outsiders". These "outsiders" are "all non-Protestants, aliens, liberals, trade unionists and striking workers". (Microsoft Encarta 1995) Their traditions have been pasted down from generation to generation since 1865. Lately, Klansmen have been running for office and other government jobs like that. Although the Ku Klux Klan and the Brotherhood have nothing really outstandingly in common, they are both considered evil by their society which are the U.S. government and the Party. The Ku Klux Klan is not fighting to make things better, nor are they doing anything constructive. In the Brotherhood they are out to make life better for all.

The Anarchy Organization's purpose, according to Webster's Ninth New Collegiate Dictionary, is to abolish "established order using violent ways". Basically anarchists are out to overthrow any law. In The Anarchy Organization's page they summarize what they are after and what they want. They call themselves "artists fighting infections f capital plague-machine society and the assault of free minds." (The Anarchy Organization, page one) "TAO fights now for our lives, our minds, and our planet." (The Anarchy Organization, page two.) These people are not doing anything now to fight for their cause. Like in 1984, if these people surface, government will quickly shut these people up and try and cover up. Anarchists have begun to think and have chosen to rebel against their government. Perhaps everyone else has been brainwashed into thinking that government is the best. Members of the Brotherhood think, remember, and know something is not right with their society. Just like the anarchists see all the laws being broken and rights violated. there is a new bill that simply wants to have censorship on the internet so you cannot access anything "bad". This violates the 1st Amendment which gives us the right to freedom of speech and freedom of the press, but this bill some how even made it to court. In 1984, people against The Party saw that the quantity of food distributed was becoming less. The Party stated, while talking about chocolate, something that now they'll be giving more chocolate to each family. This was obviously a lie when last week the quantity was more. In the Brotherhood they believed in truth and letting people live life as they want to live it, just like The Anarchy Organization.

Supreme White Power has over 30 different major organizations. "The members of these groups have one...
