consequences make up for the lack of terror. For example, Hadi Sultani, an Afghan man who at the time was in his mid-20s was subject to the harsh reality and consequences of the Taliban rule. He was subjected to “several, unending months” in jail for not having a beard and playing music. As a self-identified Atheist, he didn’t understand or believe that he needed to have a full-grown beard, in his own words he says “it just wasn’t [his] style” . He also has a passion for poetry and art, so naturally he would want to express that and do so through his music. On one unfortunate afternoon, the armed Taliban enforcers were doing inspections through his village and stumbled upon him playing traditional Hazaragi music in his home, without a beard. He was then immediately arrested and spent months in jail. Upon his release, unlike Winston Smith, his prerogatives were not beaten out of him, but he did comply. This was because his family and friends refused to let him be selfish and ruin their lives for the sake of his personal identity. The forced creation of a collective identity takes away the individual’s ability to act and think on their own accord. Constantly having to think about the consequences of actions on one’s self and others makes it harder to justify individuality. This tactic is used in 1984 and modern societies to control and maintain order amongst citizens, and to ensure undying loyalty.>GET ANSWER
