Orwell’s the novel, foreshadows the dawn of the nuclear

Orwell’s 1984 novel, illustrates a ‘perfect’ society where
humanity can roam safe under the legislations of political authorities. Orwell
had witnessed the dangers of absolute political authority in the age of an
advanced society. Based on a negative utopian or dystopian genre, the novel remains
one of the most powerful warnings against pre-mediated uprisings, ever issued
under the threats of totalitarianism. Theorist Guy Debord, explores the many
ways society deviates itself from a rational one to a society where the
production of visual material ‘turns the material life of everyone into a
universe of speculation’ thesis 19 (Debord, G. and Knabb, K. (1994). Every other
conventional utopian novel seems dissimilar, towards best describing the
attributes in a perfect society. Convincing readers to avoid towards paths that
emancipation or social degradation. In opposition Orwell’s vision of a
post-atomic dictatorship, was to be monitored ceaselessly by the telescreen. Humanity
feels at threat, the outcome of the novel, foreshadows the dawn of the nuclear
age, where the fixation of televisions in family homes, emerging into what we
currently proliferate, a knowledge based economy. Information circulates our
lives each day in forms of digital media. In retrospect, Image is all we see
and know. Orwell has postulated such a society mere thirty-five years into a future
compounded by fear ‘The spectacle is capital accumulated to the point where it
becomes image’ thesis 34 (Debord, G. and Knabb, K. (1994).
