Flashing lights, glowing posters, and beautiful models will litter the buildings and streets. Media is the government's most captivating and commanding instrument. The media is relied on by every citizen, but soon they begin to grow so confident in the media that they do not think for themselves. In this society, almost all the citizens rely on the media, some people even grow to rely on it so much that they believe every message, word for word. Millions of people watch the TV seeing what the government pours into their minds, they read the internet finding what the government releases, and soon after they have seen the same information so many times they would begin to believe it. Every day the media shows us circumstances and data that the public would otherwise live their whole lives without knowing. In 1984 the citizens no longer had access to the outside world and were confined to what they were hearing. Every day the government would tell the public about a war with Eastasia or Eurasia. “It was rather more of a shock to him when he discovered from some chance remark that she did not remember that Oceania, four years ago, had been at war with Eastasia and at peace with Eurasia. It was true that she regarded the whole war as a sham: but apparently she had not even noticed that the name of the enemy had changed.”(Orwell online resource). Now the public is slowly rotating towards this type of government. Society thinks that they know everything that is going on, but what they do not think about is who is controlling the flow of everything. The government is behind the scenes for everything that is published. The public needs to realize they can not rely fully on the first sentence they see printed on the internet or newspaper. The government used this propaganda to slide by the people and let the citizens minds concentrate on a different subject rather than how they are governed. In Little Brother all of the citizens were in chaos and needed someone more powerful to put their trust in. The citizens all looked to the government. Each word the government pressed or squeezed out into the media would instantly be absorbed. “I flipped around the 24-hour news network, one after another, a parade of officials telling us why we should be sacred.” (Doctorow online resource). Without using their own consciences’, the public would instantly accept that it must be true. The society today still has not learned that they need to think with their own minds and not let the government think for them. If the society continues this pattern they will grow to be ignorant and tools of the government.
