Winston's view of the world
At the end of chapter 1 Winston can clearly see problems with the world he lives in. Big Brother controls everything and Winston has thoughts about how life wasn't always like this. Winston tries to remember a time when you were free to do and think what you wanted but in 1984 big brother is all knowing and all controlling. "You had to live - did live, from habit that became instinct - in the assumption that every sound you made was overheard, and, except in the darkness, every movement scrutinised." Winston's every move and words are recorded through the telescreen and so with being restricted for this long Winston starts to desire freedom and solitude from Big Brother. Winston sees that the world is not right since Big Brother changes the laws, the past, the present and anything else in the world as they see fit. In the world of nineteen eight- four one is not allowed to have thoughts, one must do as told by Big Brother, Winston cannot live this life anymore and so he starts a diary something frowned upon by the party. Winston feels he must let his thoughts out in some way. Winston realizes that by writing the diary he is breaking the law and if he is found out he will be killed. "They'll shoot me in the back of the neck I don't care down with Big Brother". Winston see's how Big Brother uses the two minutes of hate to divert people's anger and complaints towards Goldstein and the Brotherhood, blaming them for anything wrong or bad that happens in the world all the while trying to make themselves look better. At the end of the first chapter Winston comes to realize his hatred towards Big Brother, he feels he must do something to at least fracture Big Brothers power over the world.
