And sales have surged too in countries known as stable democracies. Orwell effectively explores the themes of mass media control, government surveillance, totalitarianism and how a dictator can manipulate and control history, thoughts, and lives in such a way that no one can escape it.

His sympathies for the Burmese, however, end in an unforeseen personal tragedy.
