One love. Sexual desires and love is one

One major theme in which is a constant recurrence throughout the book is sexuality and love. Sexual desires and love is one of the uncontrollable feelings and instinct in which the Party makes multiple efforts to undermine those feelings. “The aim of the Party was not merely to prevent men and women from forming loyalties which it might not be able to control. Its real, undeclared purpose was to remove all pleasure from the sexual act” (Orwell 83). Many of these efforts are held by the Junior Anti-Sex League, committed to ban sexual intercourse and teach the younger generations about chastity and relationships. The only time in which the Party allowed sexual intercourse and relationship was with the porpoise of making children to serve the Party. One uses of chastity in which the Party used was to use those bottled down sexual instinct and use them as a driving force. “There was a direct intimate connection between chastity and political orthodoxy. 168 1984 For how could the fear, the hatred, and the lunatic credulity which the Party needed in its members be kept at the right pitch, except by bottling down some powerful instinct and using it as a driving force” (Orwell 167).Language is another major theme in which focuses on the control of vocabulary and thinking of the citizens. Newspeak the language in which every citizen has to adopt, also using it as an efficient form of mind control. It is the use of English vocabulary but the amount of words have been limited and reduced. For example, “Take ‘good’, for instance. If you have a word like ‘good’, what need is there for a word like ‘bad’? ‘Ungood’ will do just as well” (Orwell 66). The whole aim of “Newspeak is to narrow the range of thought” (Orwell 67). Making it harder to commit though crime. Thought crime being any independent actions or thinking that disobeyed the Party’s orthodoxy. The Party is very efficient using language as a form of mind control.
