# <center>1984 Orwell and the reality of Venezuela (part I)</center>

#

<div class="text-justify">

English literature has given the world one of the most important anticipatory novels of our time: **_1984_**. Surely you, dear reader, are thinking of other English works such as **_The Time Machine_** by **H.G. Wells** or A **_Happy World_** by **Aldous Huxley**, which are also science fiction novels in which a future is envisioned in which technology dominates man, and I do not take away his reason; these works are also as important as the one written by **George Orwell**. But what is it about the novel 1984 that makes it fundamental and valid above all other novels at this time?

Indisputably, beyond the devastating pessimism about the future, its pages maintain, unlike the other two novels mentioned, the premonition of the present that many of us are living and the intuition of a world increasingly governed by the irrational use of technology. That is to say, its history is not that of a future that has not yet arrived, but that of the devastating present that we suffer.

#
This book, published on June 8, 1949, shows us how citizens can be controlled by an omniscient being who, through a television screen, observes everything that surrounds him and in which everyone spies on everyone; in the same way, it shows us how totalitarian regimes work and how they can do the indescribable to remain in power.

#
But what is the similarity between the **_1984_** fiction and our contemporary reality? In a series of posts I want to write for @adsactly, I wish we could make an analogy between some of the related events in the novel and the events taking place in one of the countries with the worst political and economic crisis at the moment: Venezuela. To this end, we will review passages from the novel and compare them with some specific events of the current Venezuelan reality. Let us begin:

#

#
When we look at the situation in Venezuela we have the impression of entering the dystopian history written by **Orwell**: we live under a totalitarian government; we have a leader and a single messianic party that personalizes power and controls everything; we suffer the indoctrination that imposes not only thought, but also reality; we observe the artifice of the ministries that try to control everything; we live the conception of an arbitrary language and the serious problem of the absence of freedom, persecution and misery. In this first part we will deal with the manipulation of memory as a form of citizen control.

#
The country where the history of **_1984_** is developed is called Landing Track Number One. In this sense, the Party has had to reconstitute everything on the basis of a brainwashing that is done to the population, in order to disconnect the present with the past of the nation. This mechanism, by all means arbitrary, seeks to leave citizens without memory, so that they not only doubt history but also the existence of themselves.

#
>More frightening than the torments and death itself was the fact that the Party had the power to seize the past and affirm that such and such an event had never happened ... For it is their understanding that would not take long to be annulled anyway. And if everyone agrees to accept the falsehoods imposed by the Party as true and all the evidence is used to support them, then the lie becomes history and becomes true. "Whoever owns the past," said the Party's motto, "dominates the future, whoever owns the present dominates the past. 42 

#
As far as we can see, the control of memory is a fundamental and determining factor for the domination of people. When a government erases the past of a people, in one way or another it is leaving it orphaned and adrift. This makes it an easy target for lies and inventions.

#
The same thing is happening in Venezuela. Since the Bolivarian Government, led first by Hugo Chávez and then by Nicolás Maduro, came to power, there are many passages of history and even patriotic symbols that have been reconstructed or refounded, leaving the youngest citizens with uncertainty and total ignorance of the country's historical past. A clear example of this maneuver is the change in the name of our country, which used to be called the Republic of Venezuela, becoming now the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela. The same change took place in emblematic streets and squares that were refounded with other names overnight. A similar variation was experienced by the national dates, which until then were commemorated in the country and then fell into disuse, to then begin to promote and celebrate others that violated all previous history. Not to mention the alteration they made to the National Coat of Arms, the Flag, money and even the face of the country's greatest hero: Simón Bolívar.

# 
In the search to eradicate memory, in the novel **_1984_** all means are used to establish history, to make it credible and truthful before the eyes of all: 

#
>In the old days, the paragraph said, before the glorious Revolution, London was not the beautiful city we know today, but a miserable, dirty and sordid population where almost no one ate enough and there were hundreds of thousands of poor people without shoes or even a roof under which to shelter. (78)

#
Even later, he tells us more clearly how the books have been responsible for transmitting part of the country's historical memory:

#
>I would like to know your opinion on this. The history texts affirm that life before the Revolution was totally different from what it is now. There was the most atrocious slavery and injustice and misery beyond all one can imagine. (94)

#  
As we see in this passage of the novel, books, like newspapers, can be carriers of information. Hence they are used to create a favorable line of opinion for any government. Perhaps because of this, any regime with totalitarian tendencies is going to look for ways to control not only the editorials, but also the press and any means of communication. In this case the aim is to show how unfavorable any time before the current government was, the hardships that the citizens of a country could have experienced, all this in order to establish the idea of messianism, so that the citizens feel grateful and indebted to the government.

#


#
Venezuela is an oil-producing country, so it could be economically more solvent than other countries, but that's not the case. When Hugo Chávez, former president of Venezuela, comes to power, the discourse he uses is precisely that of a savior, that of someone who comes to improve the conditions of the most underprivileged, to give them a voice, to listen to them. Obviously, many people who until that moment had felt despised by previous governments believed in the proposal. They saw in the words of the former president, the opportunity to have a better economic position and a better quality of life. To reaffirm the image that the Chavista government wanted to establish in the minds of Venezuelans, all the means of communication were used to transmit messages that not only spoke of the positive aspects of the revolution, but also of how bad the previous governments had been.

#
 
>The ideal sustained by the party was something dazzling, gigantic and overwhelming: a world of steel and concrete, of monstrous machines and terrifying weapons; a people of warriors and fanatics advancing towards their destinies with perfect cohesion, animated by identical thoughts and all chanting the same chorus... But the reality was another: sordid and decaying cities, where malnourished people wore shoes with holes in the soles and lived in houses built in the nineteenth century that smelled of boiled cabbages and toilets in poor condition of conservation, (79)

#

Apparently, one idea is what they want to see and another very different idea is what they really are. Like **_1984_**, in Venezuela there is still the greatest fallacy that the country is on the right path, that we were never as happy as we are now, that there has never been as much prosperity and abundance as there is in this revolution. In fact, it has been seen outside our borders that the Venezuelan is one of the world's citizens with the best quality of life at the moment. Not to mention, that the government, whenever it can, threatens to declare war on other countries, starting from a power that does not exist, because if one thing is clear is that Venezuelans are suffering from terrible malnutrition and lack appropriate clothing that can cover their bones.

# 

>Day and night the telepanel broke one's eardrums with statistics to show that today the people ate more, dressed better, had more comfortable housing and better means of entertainment; that men lived longer and worked less; that they were more robust, educated and blissful than the poor people of fifty years ago... Thus, for example, the Party affirmed that today 40% of the plebeians knew how to read and write, while before the Revolution they did not exceed
 15%. (80)

<div class="text-justify">

With respect to the above quotation from **Orwell's** story, it has been said that Venezuela's current regime is one of the most mediatic in this country. The number of official transmissions that have been broadcast in these 20 years exceeds by far the number that previous governments could have done. Many of these transmissions, of endless hours, are used to talk about the goodness of the current government and to rant the previous governments, as well as those who oppose it.

</div>

In short, the historical impositions and the repeated maneuvers to eliminate Venezuela's past with a single stroke are an example of the maneuver of the government to disorientate and to that extent to keep a people submissive. We know that without memory, without the myth of foundation, there is no full national identity. The construction of our identity is subject to the necessary remembrance of our past, to the solid foundations it gives to the present and the future. A person who has lost his past is a docile and submissive person. Many governments, as well as that of the history of 1984 and of Venezuela, play at having an amnesic population in order to achieve control and the distortion of history. Let us remember the motto of the only Party: **_"Whoever owns the past, dominates the future; whoever owns the present, dominates the past"_**. He who makes history official owns everything.</div>

I sincerely recommend you to read "1984" by George Orwell, it's a book at the end of the fiction, but quite real, and you'll find, as I've already shown, many similarities between this scheme and the Big Brother diet. "Big Brother" they are watching you!

The government doesn't have much right to treat the citizens in any way since the citizens are the ones who voted them in power, in other words, gave them the power they feel they have. They are supposed to work and listen to the citizens for the betterment of the country but nowadays, reverse is the case. 
Most times, we the citizens are the cause. We're been blindfolded with money and words instead of actions, be wise brothers.
I feel for the Venezuelans and I pray that God will put an end to this which they are facing.

@nancybriti ·
Thank you very much for your words, @lilkeszi. You are absolutely right: we are guilty of choosing infamous people as rulers. There is a saying that goes: People deserve the governments they have. Like a disease, there are governments that not only seek to control, but also to destroy everything. Greetings

That is very sad, but things are even worse than this when you realize a lot of people support this dictatorship here on South America. I'm talking about Luis Lula Inácio da Silva formerly EX president of Brasil and their voting party, the FARC that is WITH Lula and practically most of the Latin America leaders.

The main stream mídia Will NEVER tell you this couse they make part on it too.

There is a way to try to slow it down it's not letting LULA party win the election here.

If they do soon we will have the first NARCOSOCIALISM!!!

Certainly there were many governments in the world supporting the current regime in Venezuela, but thank God, many have awakened and started to take off and take another position. Lula was one of Chávez's closest presidents! Thank you for commenting.

George Orwell portrayed the senseless and merciless duel of the individual and the system, where the first is doomed to ruin. The authoritarian state denies the human right to individuality, and this means that everything that is dear to us will be violated if the power of the state over society is absolute. The writer warned us against the collectivism of thought and against the permissiveness of the dictatorship under any slogans that we most certainly cannot believe. For me, the meaning of the work “1984” is to present the world, which has dialectically evolved according to the laws of today to the state of tyranny, and to show its poverty, its total discrepancy to our values ​​and ideas. The author has taken the radical ideas of contemporary politicians to him to the extreme and got no fiction, no, but a real forecast for the future, to which we, unwittingly, are approaching the present. Any dystopia exaggerates to make humanity think about what will happen next, if you allow the arbitrariness of today.

Very well said, @aydogdy. !984 is a clear and evident anticipation of the whole society we were going to have. This reality could be aggravated if we do not assume that there are egomaniacal governments (presidents) seeking to control the world. Right now there are many examples to fear. Greetings!

Venezuela is a great case to relate to the 1984 book. I would only say one thing, it does not seem that the regime in Venezuela is so rigid. They are definitely a totalitarian government, but it is obviously not designed to last very long.  The Venezuelan government will continue to only destroy itself.
