The Quintessential Negative Utopia in George Orwell's 1984 1984 is George Orwell's arguably his most famous novel, and it remains one of the most powerful warnings ever made against the dangers of a totalitarian society.

The Party controls everything from history to language. The Party is currently forcing the implementation of an invented language named Newspeak, which attempts to stop political rebellion by removing all words associated with it.
