Desensitized Masses

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

I read George Orwell’s 1984 this week. As I’m sure you all know from reading it or hearing about it that there is a lot of messed up stuff in there. But the thing that stuck out the most to me was how desensitized the people were. There is a scene where the main character is walking through an area that was recently hit by a bomb and sees a hand in the middle of the street. He doesn’t freak out or even feel bad he just kicks the hand aside like it’s no big deal. I know that I don’t show a lot of emotions but I’d hope that I would still show some casual interest over a hand in the middle of the street. (By casual interest I mean freak the hell out.) Write a scene that involves a character that is desensitized to violence. How does this character interact with normal characters?
