Government Controling Ways In the Novel 1984 by George Orwell, Orwell depicts the theme of psycological control. Some examples in the novel of psycological control was doublethink, two minute hate, and room 101. First, one of the examples of the theme psycological control was that people were not allowed to doublethink. Doublethink is when one hold two different ideas on ones mind. "Doublethink means the power of holding two contradictory beliefs in ones mind by holding two contradictory beliefs in ones mind simutaneously, and accepting both of them"(214). This means that his memories must be altered and his mind is playing tricks to reality. This would have to be concious and unconcious. By doublethinking one can erase their knowledge. So the Party can continue for thousands of years to arrest history and change it. Another example of the pyscological control was the Two Minute Hate. The Two Minute Hate was everyday and party members of the society of Oceania must watch the party members enemies and they have to show their hate for them. "In it's second minute the hate rose to a frenzy. People were leaping up and down in their places and shouting at the top of their voices in an effort to drown the maddening bleating voice that comes from the screen"(4). But people got very angry and mad. Basically, "The program of the Two Minute Hate varied from day to day, but there was none in which Goldstein was not the principle figure"(12). Goldstein was a traitor and he has crimes against the party and he did some sabotage. This shows that Also room 101 is an another example of Pyscological Control. It was a room where they put people in and inside will be their personal fears. It was a really bad place to be in and its not good. Lots of people would rather do other stuff that are very horrible and it seems like its worse then room 101, but that room is more worse, for example "Do anything to me, You've been starving me for weeks. Finish it off and let me die.
Warning, Love George Orwell.
George Orwell once said that “writing a novel is agony”; however as excruciating as it may have been for him to write it (probably since he was so ill at the time), 1984 stands to be one of the greatest examples of dystopian literature read today. It is a strong novel that draws on concepts like totalitarianism, class and caste systems, rebellion and many other concepts that seem far off from the society that exists today. On the contrary, Orwell himself states that….
Fear, confusion and intimidation are not just feelings. If they are used in the right way they can be used for control and power. A dictator in a totalitarian regime will use these emotions to control his people.

The language Newspeak is being implemented by the government to limit the possibility of political rebellion by eliminating….
