Orwell’s
1984 novel, illustrates a ‘perfect’ society where humanity can roam safe under the
legislations of political authorities. Orwell had witnessed the dangers of
absolute political authority in the age of an advanced society. Based on a
negative utopian or dystopian genre, the novel remains one of the most powerful
warnings against pre-mediated uprisings, ever issued under the threats of
totalitarianism. Theorist Guy Debord, explores the many ways society deviates
itself from a rational one to a society where the production of visual material
‘turns the material life of everyone into a universe of speculation’ thesis 19
(Debord, G. and Knabb, K. (1994). Unlike every conventional utopian novel, best
describing the attributes in a perfect society, this does the exact opposite; convincing
readers to avoid towards paths that can restrict emancipation or social
degradation. In opposition Orwell’s vision of a post-atomic dictatorship, was
to be monitored ceaselessly by the telescreen. In retrospect, humanity feels at
threat, the outcome of the novel, foreshadows the dawn of the nuclear age,
where the fixation of televisions in family homes, emerge into what we
currently enforce, a knowledge based economy. Information circulates our lives each
day in forms of digital media. Image is all we are shown and all we know. Orwell
has postulated such a society mere thirty-five years
