The second branch is called “The Ministry of Love” where people were punished, tortured and were taught to hate each other. The third branch is called “The Ministry of Plenty” where economic affairs were handled, they decided who got how much of something almost always being too little of a ration. The last branch is called “The Ministry of Peace” which handled all the war affairs such as where the next bomb they launched would hit and who they needed to destroy next. Big Brother had a slogan that read “WAR IS PEACE”, “FREEDOM IS SLAVERY” and “IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH”.

Katharine is Winston’s wife though he hasn’t seen her for three years. Eastasia and Eurasia are the two other states fighting for power with Oceania. The proles are the only people who are not controlled so much by Big Brother, they act as we do and can have their own believes, thoughts, feelings or anything they feel like. Emmanuel Goldstein is the boss of an underground brotherhood that wants to destroy Big Brother.

Climax- The climax of this story is when Winston and Julia join this secret brotherhood commanded by Emmanuel Goldstein who’s sole purpose is to destroy Big Brother by opening the eyes of people by a secret book that didn’t have a name, it was just called “the book” which contained the beliefs of Emmanuel as to what Big Brother was doing.
Falling Action- The falling action here is when after Winston and Julia have sex in their own little hiding place which was a room who they rented from Mr. Charrington (who was really O\'Brien in disguise) in a place where the proles lived, the Thought Police, commanded by O’Brien catch them and takes them to the Ministry of love where they are punished, humiliated and are made to confess everything and anything that they ever knew while being tortured by O’Brien. Winston betrays everything he loved by punishment and is made to betray everyone and everything he believed in by facing his greatest terror which is rats.
Conclusion- The conclusion is that after a few months or years of rehabilitation, Winston is taught to obey Big Brother and love him even though his mind tells him otherwise and he also has to learn how to control his mind to suit whatever Big Brother says is true or not such as 2+2 being 5 and not 4, and he knew it was 5 because Big Brother said so and there was no proof of it being
