Download and read online Nineteen Eighty four in PDF and EPUB View our feature on George Orwell s "1984." Written in 1948, "1984" was George Orwell's chilling prophecy about the future. And while 1984 has come and gone, Orwell's narrative is more timely that ever. "1984" presents a "negative utopia," that is at once a startling and haunting vision of the world so powerful that it is completely convincing from start to finish. No one can deny the power of this novel, its hold on the imaginations of entire generations of readers, or the resiliency of its admonitions a legacy that seems to grow, not lessen, with the passage of time."

George Orwell In einer Radioansprache der BBC im Jahre 1941 spricht George Orwell diese eindringliche Warnung vor der totalitaren Regierungsform aus. Zu einer Zeit, in der sowohl in der UdSSR als auch Deutschland totalitare Diktaturen herrschen, um sich greifen und damit uber ihre Grenzen hinaus Schrecken verbreiten. Als Zeitzeuge im nahegelegenen, vom Totalitarismus bedrohten Britannien erlebt der sich politisch zum demokratischen Sozialismus bekennende Orwell mit, wie die Volker unter Stalin und Hitler nach und nach Rechte und Freiheiten verlieren, belogen, entmundigt, unterdruckt, gefoltert und sogar getotet werden. Auch, wenn er sich in seiner Radiorede auf die drohende Frage des Uberlebens oder Sterbens der Literatur bezieht, so klingt trotzdem die Sorge aus diesen Worten, dass der Fall der freien Literatur nur ein Anfang sein kann. Ein Anfang, der ohne Widerstand einen vernichtenden Verlauf nehmen und in einem menschenverachtenden, totalitaren Staatssystem gipfeln kann, wie es Orwell in seiner Dystopie 1984 entworfen hat. Er vollendet den Roman 1948 und lasst darin seinen Hauptprotagonisten Winston Smith 36 Jahre spater, 1984, in einer unheilvollen Zukunft das perfektionierte, pervertierte totalitare Regime des Big Brother hinterfragen. Dass als real-historische Vorbilder dieses Staates Oceania" unter anderem die Diktaturen Stalins bzw. Hitlers dienten, ist naheliegend und wird auch von der Forschung klar dargelegt. So schreibt zum Beispiel John Atkins in seiner literarischen Studie George Owell" The rulers of 1984"

Genetic integrity, eugenic advancement, and a strong genetic pool designed to eliminate illness and suffering have been the benchmarks of the "Genetic Movement" and the challenge of Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four. If the quality of life can in some way be either im proved or advanced by use of the law, then this policy must be developed and pursued. No longer does the Dostoyevskian quest to give life meaning through suf fering become an inescapable given. By and through the development and application of new scientific advances in the field of genetics (and especially genetic engi neering), the real potential exists to prevent, to a very vii Preface viii real extent, most human suffering before it ever mani fests itself in or through life. Freedom to undertake re search in the exciting and fertile frontiers of the "New Biology" and to master the Genetic Code must be nur tured and maintained. The search for the truth inevi tably prevents intellectual, social, and economic stag nation, as well as-ideally-frees all from anxiety and fright. Yet, there is a very real potential for this quest to confuse and confound.

Download and read online Das ist bei uns nicht m glich in PDF and EPUB Sinclair Lewis’ Roman aus dem Jahr 1935 führt einen Antihelden vor, der mit seinen Hetzreden die Begeisterung unzufriedener Wähler entfacht. Durch seine Lügen und eine Rhetorik des Populismus und der Ressentiments wird er Präsident der Vereinigten Staaten. Das klingt vertraut? „Eine unheimliche Vorwegnahme der aktuellen Ereignisse.“ The Guardian „Ein Populist im Weißen Haus? Literaturnobelpreisträger Sinclair Lewis hat es vor 80 Jahren durchgespielt.“ DIE ZEIT „Sinclair Lewis ist wieder aktuell.“ der Freitag „Ein Meister des absoluten Realismus." Bob Dylan 1935 in den USA ein aufsehenerregender Bestseller, heute wieder eine Sensation und aktuell wie selten zuvor. In der Übersetzung des bekannten Exilautors und Kleist-Preis-Trägers Hans Meisel – mit einem Nachwort von Jan Brandt. Sinclair Lewis wusste durch seine Frau Dorothy Thompson, Auslandskorrespondentin in Berlin, über den Aufstieg der Nazis Bescheid. In den USA beobachtete er, wie die Populisten nach Wirtschaftskrise und Sozialreformen des New Deal immer weiter an Einfluss gewannen. Der radikale Senator Huey Long versuchte Präsident Roosevelt aus dem Amt zu drängen, bevor Long 1935 einem Attentat zum Opfer fiel. Lewis diente er als Vorbild für den fanatischen Verführer Buzz Windrip in seinem Roman. Buzz Windrip, für seine Gegner ein „ungebildeter Lügner mit idiotischer Weltanschauung“ und ein gefährlicher Populist, will Präsidentschaftskandidat werden. Er gibt vor, sich für die kleinen Leute einzusetzen, und verspricht, „aus Amerika wieder ein stolzes Land zu machen“. Trotz völlig unglaubwürdiger Versprechen laufen ihm die Wähler zu, und er zieht ins Weiße Haus ein. Sogleich regiert er wie ein absolutistischer Herrscher, beschneidet die Freiheiten der Minderheiten, legt sich mit Mexiko an und lässt seine Kritiker rabiat verfolgen. Einer davon ist der liberale Zeitungsherausgeber Doremus Jessup, der sich nicht mundtot machen lassen will.

Download and read online Cloud Connectivity and Embedded Sensory Systems in PDF and EPUB Sensor networks are meant to create awareness in space and time. They may be measuring the presence of an object or a condition, characterizing an object stream or a situational pattern, or even detect abnormalities that are to occur. This book provides new theory on the design of wireless sensor networks, based on concepts developed for large-scale, distributed computing environments known as “cloud computing.” It provides a single-source entry into the world of intelligent sensory networks, with a step-by-step discussion of building case studies that capture the requirements, taking into account practical limitations of creating ambient intelligence. The reader will not only achieve a better understanding of sensory clouds, swarms and flocks but is also guided by examples of how to design such networks taking the typical characteristics of diverse application areas into account.

While the totalitarian system that provoked him into writing it has since passed into oblivion, his harrowing cautionary tale of a man trapped in a political nightmare has had the opposite fate: its relevance and power to disturb our complacency seem to grow decade by decade. In Winston Smith's desperate struggle to free himself from an all-encompassing, malevolent state, Orwell zeroed in on tendencies apparent in every modern society, and made vivid the universal predicament of the individual.

Download and read online George Orwell s Theory of Language in PDF and EPUB There is not a single book that gives a systematic description of George Orwell’s views on language. Andrei Reznikov’s work is the first attempt to fill this gap. Reznikov puts together the pieces of Orwell’s language puzzle, scattered throughout his essays, diaries, letters, radio talks and fiction, and proposes the Newspeak model as Orwell’s way to formulate his theory. The theory is then tested with illustrative examples from three languages—modern English, Nazi German, and Soviet Russian. Finally, the author describes bias-free language as an implementation of Orwell’s ideas.
