The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power. Not wealth or luxury or long life or happiness: only power, pure power. What pure power means you will understand presently. We are different from all the oligarchies of the past, in that we know what we are doing. All the others, even those who resembled ourselves, were cowards and hypocrites. 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 round the corner there lay a paradise where human beings would be free and equal. We are not like that. We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means; it is an end. 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

The above statement is taken from Orwell’s 1984, and I reproduce it here to remind everyone that this wonderful Freedom-loving Government of ours is planning to outsource the infamous Total Internet Database, where everyone’s texts, calls, e-mails and web-page visits will be stored and referenced for use by the Security Services, Council Bin-men and anti-terror sections of the police.

 

Are your worries relieved by the Home Secretary’s statement that suggests tough legal penalties would be imposed if the data is misused! Are you happy that your calls will be logged by a private company in the knowledge that they ‘know what they are doing? Are you just complacent in the knowledge that if you have done nothing wrong, you have nothing to fear? If you have answered “Yes” to any one of these queries, you deserve everything you get from this bunch of thugs! If you have replied in the negative, why don’t you log on to this bunch, write your M.P. and lambast this bunch of hypocritical scum with your invective?
