“The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power, pure power. What pure power means you will understand presently. We are different from the oligarchies of the past in that we know what we are doing. The German Nazis and the Russian Communists came very close to us in their methods, but they never had the courage to recognize their own motives. They pretended, perhaps they even believed, that they had seized power unwillingly and for a limited time, and that just around the corner there lay a paradise where human beings would be free and equal. We know what no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Those who control the present, control the past and those who control the past control the future. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power. Now you begin to understand me. Always there will be the intoxication of power, constantly increasing and constantly growing subtler. Always, at every moment, there will be the thrill of victory, the sensation of trampling on an enemy who is helpless. If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face - for ever. Power is in tearing human minds to pieces and putting them together again in new shapes of your own choosing. Always eyes watching you and the voice enveloping you. Asleep or awake, - no escape. Nothing was your own except the few cubic centimeters inside your skull. You believe that reality is something objective, external, existing in its own right. You also believe that the nature of reality is self-evident. When you delude yourself into thinking that you see something, you assume that everyone else sees the same thing as you. Reality exists in the human mind, and nowhere else. Not in the individual mind, which can make mistakes, and in any case soon perishes: only in the mind of the Paty, which is collective and immortal. If both the past and the external world exist only in the mind, and if the mind itself is controllable - what then? Being in a minority, even in a minority of one, did not make you mad. There was truth and there was untruth, and if you clung to the truth even against the whole world, you were not mad.”
― George Orwell, 1984
"But if all these laws and government programs are as bad as you libertarians say, why isn’t it all over the news?!"
Well, this is why.
This is the same William Colby who supposedly got up one night, leaving his food on the table and his tv on, to go out for a canoe and drowned out in the middle of nowhere and wasn’t found for days, not too long after his getting involved in the investigation of the Franklin Child Prostitution Ring Allegations.
Figuratively operation Jabberjay. “Jabberjays are a type mutation that consist of all birds that were created in the Capitol labs to spy on enemies and rebels of the Capitol.”
