What are the similarities between the 3 superpowers in 1984?
The governments of the three superpowers are alike in essence, even though their forms of government have different names. Identify these similarities and explain why they exist?
We are given very little information about the other Superstates, Eastasia and Eurasia; however, Goldstein's book which is included in the body of the novel gives us a few clues. In the chapter entitled "War is Peace," Goldstein claims that all three Superstates are self-sustained economies that do not need one another to survive. Each possesses enough land and resources to survive independently and has no reliance what-so-ever on the other Superstates for resources or finances. He also states that the people within Eastasia and Eurasia are exactly like the people in Oceania due to their similarly ran governments.
