In how many of us can say

In life there are many situations where rebellion is required for change and improvement. Some are simple, like growing up and learning not to do certain things and others are more complex like when a group of people stand up for what they believe, for example, women’s rights and black’s rights. However, the way that society today is being mined controlled, distracted, and influenced into being afraid of defying high authority is taking a huge toll into the way we live & view the government. Therefore, I do not believe that modern proletariat will ever rebel against the government. For that reason, this paper with examine the ways of how mind control, distraction, and fear affect the chances of modern proletariat challenging against the government.
In my opinion, distraction is one of the main ways that the government makes sure we as the “future of the world” don’t challenge them. For example, everyone knows who the Kardashians are, their stories are all over the Internet. It’s almost impossible to open a search page anywhere that doesn’t have one or more daily updates on what at least one of the Kardashian clan is doing. But how many of us can say that we know about the new “Zero Tolerance” law put into order at the border where the separation of nearly 3,000 children from their parents occurred in just a week? Well that’s because we’re always too busy on our phones and focusing on when the next major celebrity scandal will happen to even notice actual world- wide problems. But is it really our fault? Do we really have control over what we see in our tv screens ; cellphones? We may believe we do but, the government can control anything at any time and place with us not even noticing and we fall for it.
In addition, to distraction “mind control” I believe also plays a big part in why modern proletariat will not rebel against the government. Not because we are weak minded but because we either don’t want to face reality or we’re simply just don’t care. For Instance, in George Orwell’s novel “1984” he emphasizes on how the party controls what anyone thinks and says. Except for Winston who is a rebel against the party and by writing in the diary he is letting people know what the actual truth is, which is why the party would punish him if they found the diary. Simply because the party wants to regulate anything that is being written so that they can control what citizens believe happened in the past.
