My Reflection

"A 1984 Quote"

The Quote that I am Reflecting on...

"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, Chapter 3

The Reflection

The people of the Outer Party and the Proles are convinced that everything that the Inner Party does is for their own good. The truth of the matter is that, what they are doing isn't for the good of any of the other party factions. The things they do are solely for the Inner Party and no one else. The things they do aren't for the Spies, the Thought Police, the Outer Party or the Proles, it's only for their greed for power. From birth, the Inner Party make it so people don't have feeling and they don't and can't think for themselves. They do this by any means just so they can feed their greed for power. They even are willing to rewrite history, kill people and fight in an ever lasting war just for the power they want.
