The lesson to be learned from George Orwell\'s 1984 is that an "ideal" of having a
Utopian society will never really work. George Orwell may have written 1984, in order
to show us that every society has it\'s ups and downs and that no matter how hard you
work to keep the society perfect there will always be flaws. In the book 1984, the society
in which the people lived was completely opposite to what most people would see as
As defined by the New Scholastic Dictionary the word "Utopia" means: a place
where everything is perfect and everyone is happy. This is far from the life that the
people lived in 1984. There was a lot of hate throughout the book, and with hate comes
unhappiness an example of this would be: "The Hate had started.... The Enemy of the
people had flashed onto the screen. There were hisses among the audience" (Orwell, 13.)
Then there were the three slogans from the Party: "War is Peace; Freedom is Slavery;
Ignorance is Strength" (Orwell, 17) That doesn\'t really seem like a happy society.
Throughout the book, Orwell pointed to reasons for this being the complete
opposite of a Utopian Society. Winston, the main character, defied the odds and went
against the rules, in order to show, that you can\'t follow any set of strict rules in a society,
especially one where everyone is supposedly created equal. George Orwell tried to teach
his readers a very important lesson, that a Utopian society will never work.
