1984 Quote Reflection

"The party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power" (263) Book 3 Ch. 3

This quote shows to be true throughout the whole book. We see that the party only wants power so they do whatever they can to limit their citizens. Only members of the inner party were able to receive real rood and full rations as well as more privileges. For example, only the inner party had access to real chocolate and real gin. The party's main goal was to make the people believe what they wanted them to believe. To make them powerless under the parties rule.
