He works in the Ministry of Truth, a place where history and the truth is rewritten to fit the party’s beliefs.Winston is aware of the untruths, because he makes them true.
Stalin "purged the people who did not agree with him when he came to power. They killed Winston's parents and many others.
Also Stalin exiled his primary political rival, Trotsky, just as "BIG BROTHER" got rid of Emanuel Goldstein.
This is the gem in Orwell’s collection of novels against totalitarianism.
This paper will show how George Orwell wrote 1984 as a political statement against totalitarianism.
So as you can see Stalin's "Soviet Union" was much like "Oceania" The monitoring for Big Brother is achieved by telescreens, the Thought Police, other Party member, and even your own family.
Another way both Stalin and Big Brother tried to gain power was by changing language.
The terrors of a totalitarian government presented in George Orwell’s 1984 apply not only to the Party, but also to the Stalinist Russia of the 1930’s.
Frightening similarities exist between these two bodies which both started out as forms of government, and then mutated into life-controlling political organizations which “subordinated all institutions and classes under one supreme power” (Buckler 924).
Although unlimited control could not be achieved in 1930’s Russia, Orwell gives Big Brother this power to demonstrate how, if ever attained, it would lead to the complete destruction of individual freedom.
Tangible similarities between the two leaders, Stalin and Big Brother, are also daunting.
