Publisher's Summary

By bridging Marxism and deconstructionism, this essay proves how Orwell's 1984 parallels the modern-day complacency among Americans. Typically, most will point out the obvious similarities like constant surveillance through screens (phones, televisions, computers), the ever-increasing wage gap between the rich and poor, and the creation of new laws that interfere with our constitutional freedoms. The objective of this essay is to circumvent these themes by first deconstructing them, then using Marxism to explain how the deconstruction of the themes relates to our current times.
