                        The Cold War 
                            Orwell himself coined the phrase "Cold War" in an essay "You and the Atom Bomb" published in the Tribune magazine on 19 October 1945





                            "The effect was to convince the ruling groups of all countries that a few more atomic bombs would mean the end of organised society, and hence of their own power. Thereafter, although no formal agreement was ever made or hinted at, no more bombs were dropped. All three powers merely continue to produce atomic bombs and store them" from 1984

                                3. "Because of its desire for ideological unity among all citizens, the North Korean government has an iron grip over the daily lives of its citizens." (paragraph 6)

                                Discuss in your group your ideas on these questions
                                  • Why do the North Korean citizens not rise up and overthrow their government? 
                                  • How does the North Korean government resist change ?
                                  • The goal of communism in theory is to create a state that is so equal,  that it does not require a government. Why do you think the Kim dynasty, and other communist countries, fail to achieve and pursue this goal?
