From the two minutes of hate to the annual Hate week event in Orwell's 1984, what is their historical connection? I don't believe the Third Reich or the stalinist government did either of them...was it just another ingenuous invention by orwell for people to channel their anger at a common enemy and not the government or has closer ties to stalin and hitler than i believe it does.
I know North korea does something relatively similiar to the two minutes of hate on their television channels and does the morning exercises that Winston smith does but the North Korean government didnt even come into being until the Korean War which was over a decade after the first book of 1984 came out.
Can some one help me and explain what the purpose of the Two minutes of Hate is and the historical ties to a certain event or person?
thanks!! answer back
