What happen in the 1900 century, during the time of George Orwell vision for an governed democracy. In 1917-1920 a wide spread fear of Bolshevism and anarchism existed calling it the (First Red Scare). In 1918 a great war was being fought for a moral cause and for postwar peace in Europe, also Japanese civilians and sholdies, along with Russian white Army patician forces with the Red Army.Oceania in a world of perpetual war, Omnipresent government, surveillance and public manipulation dicated by a political system euphemistically named English Socialism, or Ingsoc in the government's invented language, New Speak) under the control of a privileged inner party elite, that persecutes individualism and independant thinking.The tyranny is epitomised by( Big
Brother), which is known as the term symbolic figurehead.He is claimed to be the leader of Oceania, a totalitarian state where in the ruling party weilds total power.George Orwell talks about this where every citizen is under constant surveillance by the authorities, using the phrase "Big Brother is watching you".

George Orwells talks and writes about.
Moore over the question to be ask is not how precise its predictions are, but to what extent approximates a direction, and how germane its vision of totalitarian power is to our century. In my research I've discover, that Today's government has arrived into the predicted writings of George Oerwell after 30years ago. We still have wars of government branches in America as well as other countries. George Orwell used the the wars was built on clothes, shoes, food and total control power over the people. There are no change since of his writings from the 1900 century until the 20th century. The difference is we useed modern forces to convey our evil wicked system.

Moore over, the question to ask is not how precise its predictions are, but to what extent it approximates a direction, and how germane its vision of totalitarian power is to our century. In this enlightened of Orwell’s life and work, acquaintance’s and contemporary events we will define the details in his two landmarks novels of social revolution and progress of 1984 Animal Farm, and also examines the lesser known but no less , views of man and society according to the short story in shooting a elephant
“He wears a mask, and his face grows to fit it.
The short story, “Shooting an Elephant”, begins with a troubled man, George Orwell, trying to fit into a society where his occupation and ethnicity are looked down upon. Orwell seemingly hates his occupation, as a British imperial police-man, more than the people around him. However, early one morning he received a call about an escaped elephant terrorizing the bazaar. He decides to go see what the fuss is about, taking with him an old 44 Winchester only. While searching for the elephant, he comes upon a dead man that the elephant had trampled. This caused him to send an orderly to retrieve for an elephant rifle, likely out of fear for his own safety. When the orderly returned he came with the rifle and information about the elephant’s whereabouts. When Orwell went to seek out the elephant, a large crowd followed him made him nervous. Once he had located the elephant, he took time to get a good position to shoot the elephant. Nonetheless, he felt the crowd was silently forcing him to shoot the ravaging animal, which he did. The animal laid gasping for air after receiving three shots to the head. Orwell tried to end its life quickly but to no avail. Afterwards he has discussions with British colonies after the shootings. He even mentions how he was glad the man had been trampled which justified him shooting the animal, even if it was just him not wanting to look like a fool. This was a defining moment in Orwell’s life which again lead him into his life style of” Why I write”
In our culture today, we still have the same constructions of government, which is why in George Orwell writing, clearly states (Don’t let it happen), in others words, fight for your rights, take a stand, speak against the horror, of a control democracy, that has planned to destroy the freedom of humans. The argument was that the British wanted to enforce the wickedness of political powers while Orwell was against it, although his employment as a police officer was a part of it. This is why he hated his job. People should not live under oppression, while power and control of the wrong leaders, can developed in a Government revolution, which obviously brings for slavery in one’s mind and way. Orwell knew that the past was dangerous and alluring. “Why I write” (George Orwell) Two questions dominated political thinking in this century. Why did a phenomenon like Hitler happen? Why did the Russian revolution fail? Animal Farm is concerned with the second question. From 1917-1940s Russia had been the loadstar for politically minded individuals who placed their hopes for social justice in radicalism and revolution .Animal Farm ask this question, why did the Russians revolution failed? The answer is whether a morally successful revolution is ever possible. Animal Farm will be Orwell’s lasting achievement. It is the fable for the 20th century political activists.
In accordance with the rule of school grammar written language is fundamental to civilization Orwell has developed his skill in manipulation of language to use it as accurately as possible, it allows communication between members at a great distance. Orwell wrote a book in 1984 called the English people to describe the new language, it was used in totalitarian states, This is built on the lesson of history, ….now it is clear that language must have the political and economics clauses to form a new world order gov’t require proper language usage.
Finally, in the term defining moments we all have them. George Orwell defining moments before his death was( Don’t let it happen) Governments change a people, Nation ,Country, or even your own life to being under the control of any mask wearing to cause you to become mentally oppressed “Why I write”.
