This means that Kenya is very entertained with her phone and Khali is entertained with the news. What Kenya likes is to be on social network and be sharing things on the networks, and Khali is so entertained by the news that he really does not do social network social. For example, Khali says, “I think I saw something on Twitter, though.” as referring to as he hardly uses the internet or Twitter anymore.

I know what she means about that is really hard to be black in this country. I’ve seen police brutality on the news — the George Floyd killing for example.

I’ve been teaching now for only 4 years, but I think there is a valid point to be made about what you have said. There’s been students who do nothing but game outside of class and their work in class showed. However, the majority of the gamer students have a good balance and can keep up. I roughly estimate that less than 10% cannot find the balance.

As a teacher myself, we are trying to track students at the beginning of high school and track them into programs that translate to a four year progression to career fields. While I think there is some merit to it, its hard to tell students to make very important decisions at the age of 14 or younger.

I think if we introduce this an elective where the risk is low, a lot of parents won’t freak out. Also, allowing parents to see what their students are up to would ease their minds.

In my opinion, the most significant issue with a rural community like mine. We have students with extremely slow internet or no internet. We can bandaid some of this with mobile hotspots or vehicles providing wireless connections but those are not permanent.

I agree that there are some students who can find their passion with affinity networks and those who would not. So I think this has to be a very select voluntary students who are going to get something out of this.

In this sentence he tells Winston how taking away words could cancel out an entire generation. This would taking away moments, memorizes, emotions, perspectives and etc. in a persons writing. It would be completely ignored because it would not be understood.

A way in which the party remains powerful is by controlling the simple things in their society such as language. For example, Winston wishes to speak his mind but he can’t fully because his vocabulary is limited. He saw this as normal until Syme pointed it out. Having control over someone’s language is like having control over their thought process.

It is clear in this paragraph that Orwell is warning us of the complete transformation of language as we know it. This new version of English would eradicate all emotion in speech so that the government could limit its people’s range of thought.

Syme doesn’t consider the Proles as human beings, which entails the disrespect that is held for the group. Syme goes on to describe the benefits of Newspeak, for people will no longer be able to develop their own thoughts, but dismisses the Proles despite Newspeak and Thoughtcrime not applying to them

Here Orwell says “The Party does not like such people. One day he will disappear.” gives a sense on how much power the party has having the ability to make one disappear just because the views of the party and the person don’t align.

Orwell has a clear warning here. Totalitarianism, at least early on, is justified by ideology and led by intellectuals. However, as Orwell saw in the USSR at the time with movements such as Lysenkoism, in order to further centralize power, the intelligentsia, including those who were necessary to the Party’s earlier ideology, are viewed as a threat to control and “dealt with.”

The whole point of Newspeak is to suppress the people. Dialect among peers can spur ideas and more importantly rebellion. Without communication, people are isolated and have no choice but to obey a higher order.

Like you said many dystopian stories have a theme of the destruction of art and literature. I think the sentence you commented on highlights that and sort of foreshadows it. This theme of destruction of art and literature is clearly evident in the book Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury where the plot revolves around a world where books are banished and essential illegal burning any surface of books.

Control of language is key to Oceania’s control of people. You can not think in a language you do not know. If you control the language people think in, you can control their thoughts themselves. It’s like the lyric of a Pixies song, “all my thoughts are all I am” and by controlling language you are able to control the frame through which people think.

Destroying words and cutting the language down is a great example of the authoritarian power that destroys individualism in the book. Taking away the individual freedom of the beauty of language is absolute authoritarianism.

Controlling the vocabulary that people have access to controls the way they think, because of this thoughtcrime will be impossible because you wouldn’t have the vocabulary to even think against them.

She states that she is not afraid of the moonlight and/or the darkness that comes with it. However higher in the passage she seems quite afraid of spirits. Whats the dynamic?

This is a theme among many dystopian stories. Orwell is worried that censorship could grow to become mass destruction, which would prevent people from reading about others’ experiences, perspectives, and emotions in stories.

I don’t think that thoughts can ever truly be oppressed. I think that Orwell is calling us to acknowledge basic privileges so as to bring us to understand that under alternative circumstances they could be very different. He is calling us to appreciate our freedom of thought.

When Newspeak simplifies language to one word, the party is taking humanity out of the way we communicate. Newspeak would turn people into emotionless, dull robots with no complex feelings or emotions. By destroying words, they are destroying the intelligence, to make the Party the superior beings, able to control their citizens effortlessly.
