When we first started to discuss 1984 in class we brought up a few topics that I believe can make you think and try to predict what will happen in the novel. There were many good points thrown into our conversation, among them was the question on how did the Party take over so easily? Even though I couldn't think of an answer for this question i was able to relate it. Hitler took over a large area of land and "created" a super power or super race of people. He told everyone what was right and what was wrong, in his opinion. How can somebody just take over a large area of land and so many people just by saying what they believe is right or wrong? I know that there is a lot more to it then this but I'm just trying to relate it to something that everyone can somewhat understand. It just seems to be inconceivable that one person or one group can take a whole race of people over and its easy to see that in 1984 that this is similar.
