“The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power….Power is not a means; it is an end….not power over things, but over men….In our world there will be no emotions except fear, rage, triumph, and self-abasement….There will be no loyalty, except loyalty toward the Party. There will be no love, except the love of Big Brother….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—forever.” ~ George Orwell
Nineteen Eighty-Four, 1949
Pro Max was installed by the Party because he was clever enough to appear fair while being biased. Our system was not designed to be fair but to make it impossible to prove it was unfair. Pro Max was installed because The Party thought he had good Party survival instincts and not have to depend on clandestine phone calls to understand what is the next step. That is the skill The Party requires for the position. If Pro Max no longer has that skill or is unwilling to bend beyond breaking point he will have to go.
The Party’s confidence in Pro Max is all that matters and the public’s lack of confidence is just a minor irritant. Anyone in The Party will be disposed off if they jeopardize the Party’s power. The Party Members’ fear of disposal and the common hate towards enemies are the glues which The Party needs to keep members together. If the glues ever get weak The Party will fall apart and The Party will do whatever it takes to bond for Power. If a boot has to stamp on the people’s face for The Party to survive it will be stamped. Power to The Party; to hell with the people. That is our system of Government.
note: Please feel free to substitute the name of your favorite, or least favorite political party for The Party. Please also feel free to substitute the name of any person appointed by The Party for Pro Max. It really doesn’t mater.That is our system of Government.
