The human race has not learned from 1984 and Little Brother is to question their governments. Congresses pass laws and bills all the time. Many citizens pledge their support for or dislike of a bill without truly knowing what it contains. As it was stated in1984 in Emmanuel Goldstein's book "All rulers in all ages have tried to impose a false view of the world upon their followers (Orwell, 197)." Rulers across the ages have tried to coerce and seduce their followers into swearing blind allegiance through acts of propaganda and through false promises.The Nazis used propaganda to convince Germans that Jews and other races were inferior and the cause of all of Germany's problems, inspiring excessive national pride (Ein). Following blindly is what many Americans did in the 2008 presidential election. They saw Sarah Palin or Barack Obama as beacons of hope. Many simply decided on a candidate by their political affiliation, rather than their actual policies. People follow political figures blindly, and that may, in the end, lead to the downfall of mankind.
