The protagonist, Winston Smith, quickly comes to realize the authoritarian ways of the government.

There's no war, but there's no capacity to think as well. Propaganda and doublespeak confuse the public into believing everything the higher order says. There’s no creativity, for without hardship, there's no purpose for innovative solutions, thus no potential for individuals to progress or allow society to evolve.
