The to no freedom. Totalitarianism is widely

The nature of motivation is a complex and dense topic, it is deep and conceptually volatile. Backtracking towards the concept of volatility, it is important to highlight that 1984 is a novel which depicts a totalitarian regime, with little to no freedom. Totalitarianism is widely known for the creation of rebellion and chaos amongst individuals who live under such authority. Furthermore on the topic of motivation, motives can’t directly be observed, they can only be inferred from the behaviour of one’s self.In 1984 the main intentive theme present throughout a variety of proportions was hate, hate was not only perpetrated by most, if not all the characters, it was also perpetrated in many ways by the government of Oceania, from the horrible authoritarian policies always being present, to the preposterous way the citizens of Oceania were treated. Hate has greatly influenced Winston, specifically the Party’s strong influence in ideology has greatly impacted Winston. A significant aspect of Winston’s intellectual consciousness is the fact of Winston’s rebellion being planted in his mind by the Party, having his thoughts and emotions being manipulated and puppeteered throughout and before the duration of the novel. Feelings of contemptible hatred are triggered, mostly by the fears instilled into his soul by the Party, and that the tools, emotions, and motives of rebellion are perpetrated by hatred, rooted from the Party.  Hate distorts Winston’s nature, causing him his personality, mental capacity, and self-discipline. The influential entity which is hate, stems from the unconscious mind in 1984. For instance, when Winston attends the Two Minutes Hate, it appears that he, himself is triggered by the Party to react to the different sounds and images of the screen, in which he cannot resist or holdback his emotions towards such ritual. Furthermore, there is some slight to the contrary. It is seen that this sort of hatred can be controlled consciously, as Winston notes, “it was even possible, at moments, to switch one’s hatred way, or that way by a voluntary act … Winston succeeded in transferring his hatred from the face of the screen to the dark-haired girl behind him”.  The Party is seen using a very particular form of mind control, which is influencing Party members on an unconscious level. Winston is a great example of an individual being molded, on a social and psychological level, typically by his environment, which in turn has altered and directed his motivations of hate. As it is known throughout the novel, manipulation of one’s cognitive consciousness isn’t an uncommon occurrence present between the Party, and the average person of Oceania. At one point there was an interrogation which occured between the Party, and significant characters, and during this interrogation, the idea of controlling memory is brought up, and O’Brien directly engages in conversation with Winston, stating he has “not controlled it. You are here because you have failed in humility, in self discipline”, continuing to say that “only the disciplined mind can see reality”, which in turn suggests that Winston’s ability to control and switch his hate in a seemingly unconscious way would be a key to the Party’s grasp on authority, control, and power. The Party, through authoritarian policy and demand, ensures the utmost full possession of power by directing unconscious emotions of hate against any object, to sustain the the feelings of hatred the Party will do whatever is necessary to create these new threads.
