Peer review – Week 8- George Orwell by mahdihussain94

The way I look at a figure who is representing an authority like this poor policeman, is like an empty bucket, with an open tap on the bottom. The Rules and regulations are poured in from the top, from his superiors, and they flow out of him from the tap at the bottom. It leaves no room for his own opinions or feelings. He is but a funnel, a means by which the powers can communicate with the people. It sad that he is not able to form an opinion for himself, or to express that opinion. He also has to be the peacekeeper. He has to appease his superiors, but placate also those whom he is policing, for fear of revolt. our own dear Captain and then Governor Bligh is a good example of a man who could not get that balance right.
