How, according to O’Brien, does the The Party as an oligarchy differ from Nazism or Russian Communism? How does he define the role of the martyr, both in terms of The Party and the other totalitarian systems?

O’Brien have a different way of thinking within the difference between the oligarchy from Nazism or Russian Communism. The party does not tolerate the idea of having different beliefs from others. Specially when we talk about religion. In Fact, Nazism and Russian Communism had exposed the persons in public trials and in that way they could destroy their dignity. They hava a complete system of mind control. However, all confessions made are true; the party makes them true by altering its reality. The party destroys any evidence or trace of what really happened by controlling the media and the citizen’s minds. O’Brien defines the role of the martyrs not just like the rebels but like the open minded, the ones that know that the life they are living is unacceptable, and they are not in agreement with it. In the Ministry of Love however, the martyrs enter in a reconditioning systems. People begin loving Big brother with their minds, bodies and souls because of pain and pear.O’Brien describes the everlasting success of the Party as being dependent upon the fact that there aren’t any martyrs, that everyone declares loyalty fully and when they least expect it before they can change their minds about their beliefs they are killed.
