    1984 In the novel written by George Orwell, 1984, there are several similarities to the Soviet Union. One of the most important similarities is Adolph Hitler. Another very important point in 1984 is Big Brother. Big Brother is very similar to both of the leaders, Adolph Hitler and Stalin.

It was written long ago and set in the future, but I feel like the message is still very relevant today.
