Orwell’s 1984 novel, portrays the defects of a perfect society where
humanity can roam safe under political authorities, based on a negative utopian
or dystopian genre. 1984 remains one of the most powerful warnings and
pre-mediated uprisings, ever issued against the dangers of a totalitarian society.
Orwell had witnessed the dangers of absolute political authority in the age of
an advanced society. Theorist Guy Debord, explores how humanity deviates itself
from a society that is rational to a society that ‘turns the material life of
everyone into a universe of speculation’ thesis 19 (Debord, G. and Knabb, K.
(1994). Unlike every conventional utopian novel best describing the pros affiliated
in a perfect society, this does the exact opposite; convincing readers to avoid
towards paths that can restrict any sense of emancipation or social degradation.
In opposition Orwell’s vision of a post-atomic dictatorship, was to be monitored
ceaselessly by the telescreen. In retrospect, humanity feels at threat,
foreshadowing the dawn of the nuclear age and the fixtures of televisions in
family homes this proposition would so forth incline to a knowledge based
economy where the circulation of information advances each day and makes us
aware. Orwell has postulated such a society mere thirty-five years into a future
compounded by fear that ‘The spectacle is capital accumulated to the point
where it becomes image’ thesis 34 (Debord, G. and Knabb, K. (1994).
