George Orwell was an English novelist, essayist, and critic most famous for his novels Animal Farm (1945) and Nineteen Eighty-four (1949).
He’s real name is Eric Arthur Blair, he born in Motihari, Bengal, India, in 1903, George Orwell created some of the sharpest satirical fiction of the 20th century with such works as Animal Farm and Nineteen Eighty-Four. He was a man of strong opinions who addressed some of the major political movements of his times, including imperialism, totalitarianism, fascism and communism.
Chapter I: starts with the story of Winston's life, how cold the world was, how people were guided, how the BIG BROTHER found himself at every corner with the caption "THE BIG BROTHER ITS WATCHING YOU." Winston hears what is said through the TV and goes to his room to write in his diary. Between Winston and O’Brien there is a connection about his displeasure against the party. The brotherhood is spoken for the first time.
Chapter 2: Winston meets Mrs. Parsons at home, and her children who totally adore the big brother and the party, blinded and guided by violence. For them it was like an excellent game making their parents fears them. Winston fears O'Brien's intentions by telling him to find himself in a place where there is no obscurity, a riddle that he could not quite decipher.
Chapter 3: Winston has a dream with his sister and his mother. He remembers that his mother had died in a sad and cruel way. Winston remembers from when he began to listen to the party. Of how it began to take on importance and how everything that was then a reality ended, returning to be only a dream.
Chapter 4: He talks about Winston's routine in his work, the ministry of truth, which was to recreate the truth, changing existing articles by new ones that supported the reality of the party. Winston rewrites a Big Brother speech.
Chapter 5: Winston lives with Syme in a party where they discuss about the “Neolengua” that consists in the destruction of existing words. Winston is uncomfortable not being able to expose his disagreement. That's when he notices the existence of Julia who is watching him insistently. He ends up very disturbed of the mind.
In the first chapter of 1984 we can see the context of the society we can see evidently a totalitarism movement “THE BIG BROTHER ITS WATCHING YOU” in the book seed that the people had to have the TV on all day that is also a signal of totalitarism we have to remember that totalitarism is a political system in which the state recognizes no limits to its authority and strives to regulate every aspect of public and private life wherever feasible, we can see that in this political movement that is occurring in this case in England is just totalitarism in its splendor.
This book is comparable whit an interesting topic that call me the attention the Nazi Germany, if we can see during the history there are some facts that Characterizes the Nazi Germany during the dictatorship of one of the most important person in the history of Germany Adolf Hitler is the totalitarism we have to know that the totalitarisim include also the religion, in the book we can see explicit that the people that do not accomplish the rules of the government of “BIG BROTHER” that people is actually tacked out of the city and exploded in work without any benefit of love or talk whit someone have sex and all that necessities of the people were forbidden their and if they they did not obey that rules they were directly sended to a common graves .
In the Nazi Germany it was a great collective hate directed to the jews, this hate was caused by many reasons:
-Hitler said that the jews were stealing the money of the German people, that they were owning all the employees, and that they must be expulsed of German society.
-Hitler used a religious argument for foment the anti-Semitism saying that the jews were the people who made that Jesus Christ was killed by the roman empire.
-He used a racial argument saying that the purity of the Arial race must not be mixed with the impurity of the jewish people.

But Hitler s totalitarism was not only a theme of jewish people, he also foment the hate of the German people to communists, homosexuals, and other minorities.
He had a secret police called GESTAPO that pursues any person that was a danger to the German power in all countries that they had invaded.
Hitler invaded many nations in Europe, imposing the racist and totalitarian rules of its regime, reason why the jews, communists, homosexuals, etc of many other countries suffer the persecution of German authorities all around Europe.
Many people that didn’t Fits in to the hitlerian ideal of a perfect regime was pursuit, captured, and deported to concentration camps, many of them in eastern Europe, and in some cases, they were killed in death camps like Auschwitz.

The totalitarism was not seen only in the Nazi regime, it was also seen in other regimes like the soviet one. Many people tend to say that Hitler is the worst governor of the story because he killed 6000000 but the Stalin one killed 118000000 people. He had a very huge internal repression, in this regime the Peasants were sent to work in industries and many of them usually died, the soviet version of Nazi camps were the Gulags, camps of forced work on the north of Siberia. They had a secret police called the KGB that pursuit the citizens that were not agree with the soviet regime, after they tortured the and sometimes they killed them.

Here in South America we have some examples of terrible totalitarian regimes, of them, for me the most important of them are the Videla’s argentine dictatorship, and Pinochet s Chilean dictatorship. The repression of these two regimes is also seen by the secret police. In Argentina it was a punishment called “los vuelos de la muerte” in which the people that was captured, interrogated, and tortured was also Thrown from planes in mid-flight. Sometimes pregnant woman were arrested and tortured, many of them gave birth in Argentine Jail and gave their children in clandestine adoption. They were following a USA plan of contention of communism all around America.

Other important example of totalitarism here inamerica is the case of Cuban dictatorship. It was a communist dictatorship, in which te people that wasn’t agree with the Cuban regime was arrested and tortured. This is the longest dictatorship here in America.

In this essay I didn’t spek about all the cases of totalitarism in the human history, but I speak abot some important cases. Its is an important conclusion that we can take of all this: Its doasnt matter the historical period, no matter the place, no matter the social order. The human being tends to the totalitarism, all people usually want that all others accept that they have the reason, that they are the ones who are right, and are their rules the ones that must be followed. For this reason all the wars of the human history had take place, for this all many people had died, many violence had taken place, many people had seen themselves obligated to abandoned their home places, but how Gabriel García Marquez said:
“On a day like today, my master William Faulkner said, "I decline to accept the end of man". I would fall unworthy of standing in this place that was his, if I were not fully aware that the colossal tragedy he refused to recognize thirty-two years ago is now, for the first time since the beginning of humanity, nothing more than a simple scientific possibility. Faced with this awesome reality that must have seemed a mere utopia through all of human time, we, the inventors of tales, who will believe anything, feel entitled to believe that it is not yet too late to engage in the creation of the opposite utopia. A new and sweeping utopia of life, where no one will be able to decide for others how they die, where love will prove true and happiness be possible, and where the races condemned to one hundred years of solitude will have, at last and forever, a second opportunity on earth.”

As an essay, it is disorganized: Your main idea "Human beings tend to totalitarianism" is not stated but until the end as a means of conclusion but it cannot be observed to be expressed before as a means of main idea itself. The historical introductions are good.

You need to be careful about your spelling, and with redaction.

your final grade is a 6
