    Type in Doctorow's Little Brother and Orwell's 1984 have given the contentwarnings, but if they are not applied to America, this nation will be doomed to a controlled future. Doctorow and Orwell cautioned about government surveillance, giving up freedom for security, following blindly, and always obeying the Government; now it is up to America to use these warnings. Hopefully, Americans can stop the government takeover before Marcus' fate, "I was a prisoner of the United States of your page here.America" becomes theirs, who knows, maybe there will be posters that read Uncle Sam is Watching You (Doctorow 19).

  3. page Security or Freedom edited Type "America will never seek a permission slip to defend the security of our people," …
    Type"America will never seek a permission slip to defend the security of our people," George W. Bush said this in 2005, four years after 9/11 (George). A statement like this of Bush is a sign that Americans value security more than freedom, which Doctorow warns against. This statement can be looked at in two ways; it shows that the government cares about protecting its citizens, on the other hand, that is all they care about. In Little Brother Marcus' father says "'I'm saying that it's perfectly reasonable for the police to conduct their investigations by starting with data mining, and then following it up with legwork where a human being actually intervenes to see why the abnormality exists. I don't think that a computer should be telling the police whom to arrest, just helping them sort through the haystack to find a needle'" (Doctorow 40). His father is saying that he is willing to give up some freedom to help a failed system. America has always been about being driven by courage, but since 9/11, Americans have begun to be driven by fearr (Fear). Those who are driven by freedom have self direction; those who only care about security have fear. In 1984, the society follows the government blindly because they fear the government. They feared their government because they knew what it did to enemy nations, “The voice from the telescreen was still pouring forth its tale of prisoners and booty and slaughter but the shouting outside died down a little", and they did not want to be the enemy (Orwell 297). In America, citizens follow and fear the government because the government is viewed as perfect and as Americans; they are supposed to obeyythe government (YouTube). It is good to obey to a degree, but when the government gets out of hand it is the job of the freedom loving people of America to keep them in line. If Americans give up security and fear the contentgovernment, their futures will be that of your page here.Little Brother or 1984.

    Type9/11 caused mass hysteria, the government freaked, their solution: The Patriot Act (9-11). The Patriot Act is built to stop terrorism but who is to say that is what the government will use it for. In Title II, Sec. 201 of the Patriot Act it states "Authority to intercept wire, oral, and electronic communications relating to terrorism" but the authorities do not have to get warrants for these tactics, like they did before(USA). Thinking about this is scary because in 1984 the contentgovernment keeps 24-7 surveillance on its people. As described by Winston "On each landing, opposite the lift shaft, the poster with the enormous face gazed from the wall. It was one of yourthose pictures which are so contrived that the eyes follow you about when you move. Big Brother is Watching You, the caption beneath it ran,"(Orwell 2). That is an uncomfortable similarity between America and Orwell's story of a government gone wrong. Another scary part of the Patriot Act is the very name of Title V: "REMOVING OBSTACLES TO INVESTIGATING TERRORISM" (USA). In sec. 444 of Title V it reads that "anyone above Assistant Attorney General can collect and withhold educational records of a suspect of terrorism", but again, they don’t have to give evidence of why the suspect is a terrorist (USA). The amount of information about a person that the government can know is shown in Little Brother when the DHS is holding Marcus captive,"' Hello, Marcus," Severe Haircut woman said. "We have some questions for you.'" the DHS knows his name because of the Patriot Act (Doctorow 19). A big fright with the Patriot Act is that the sections about how to catch a terrorist are huge but the section on how to help victims of a terrorist attack is only a page here.long. That does not seem like a good thing because what if there is a terrorist attack that is not stopped by the government's tactics? There would be victims dying and all the government would have to help them is one measly little page. It is hard to imagine that society has learned from Orwell and Doctorow's warnings when they pass legislation such as the Patriot Act

    Headlines read that the worst terrorist attack America has ever seen has occurred, the government is watching every one; is security worth the cost of freedom? In Cory Doctorow's Little Brother, there is a huge terrorist attack and the Department of Homeland Security ramps up security, so that every American is under heavy surveillance, then it is up to a boy by the name of Marcus to put a stop to this nonsense. Another book that exemplifies government control is George Orwell's 1984; this novel depicts a nation that is under total watch by the government that leads this nation. A man by the name of Winston challenges this system but fails and becomes a follower of Big Brother, the head figure of the Government. Even though the objective of the main character is not achieved, it is still a good example of what government can become. These authors have given many warnings about what America's government could become but have American's paid attention to these warning? Society has not learned from the warnings about government domination given by George Orwell’s 1984 and Cory Doctorow’s Little Brother; if humanity does not change, then they shall hold a fate similar to these novels.
