Compare the way in which surveillance andinformers are used and impact this has on people’s lives in 1984 and stasiland

In both Nighteen Eighty four and Stasiland, surveillance andinformers are used by the regime to monitor their citizen, in effect thatturning the ordinary people into enemy, in both text, the imagination of orwell’sworld allows for a more comprehensive system of surveillance than in real worldof GDR. The telescreen and seemingly omniscient thought police are able tomornitor Winston and Julia even when they think they have evaded observation. Discoveringher life has been observed without constant surveillance similarlypsychologically devastating for stasiland Julia, but the real humanlimitationof the stasi mean that they are liable to make mistakes. The networkof informer are crucial for both the thought police or stasi members. Differentlythe 1984 are using the technology surveillance by official agent of the secretpolice force, whereas the stasiland are using the informer(real person) tomonitor people’s life . the Nighteen eighty four shows the impact of this kindof betrayal on families, stasiland largely examine the informers network fromthe perspective of stasithemselves, Ultimately , the text aare similar in showinghow constant surveillance and informer impact on society by eliminating thetrust in friend and family and causing psychological damage, but orwellfictional text amplified these effect beyond what occurred in the GDR.

The uses of the telescreen an other technology, in combination witha secret police force that appear to be infallible, means that the character inNineteen Eighty four are deprived of all hope of ever escaping from their grimdystopia. “it was conceivable that they watched everybody all the times, but atany rate they could plug in your wire whenever they want to. You had tolive,did live from habit that become instinct-in the assumption that everysound you made was over heard , and, except in darkness every movementscrutinised.” It shows the constant surveillance for their citizens, it haspsychologically damage if they are constantly watching people, there are scaredof anytime at anywhere. Differently, in Stasiland, they are using the informerto watch people, it was more relax than the 1984, they are using the people towatch around you whereas 1984 they are using the machine to watching you overthe period. In Stasiland, you have more freedom than the 1984, it is theinformer who is going to watching you. You could have your own thought.

The human fallibility of the stasi means that although theirsurveillance also has a severe psychological impact, it can’t be quite asoverwhelming as that shown in Nineteen eighty four and stasiland. In stasilandJulia is under a constant surveillance because of she had an Italian boy friend,they are under a constant surveillance when they get in touch, Julia has beingconstant worried about her life. Because of her Italian boyfriend that causesher have no job and no school at all, they think that she is a betrayaler.
