Democracy is not just the freedom to spread ideas, but to do so without your opponent knowing the plan. Without the fundamental right to privacy not just free ideas - then there is no possibility of democracy.
The warrior is always trying to improve.
Allowing for the book, after all, being a parody, something like 1984 could actually happen. This is the direction the world is going in at the present time. In our world, there will be no emotions except fear, rage, triumph, and self-abasement. The sex instinct will be eradicated. We shall abolish the orgasm. There will be no loyalty except loyalty to the Party. But always there will be the intoxication of power. Always, at every moment, there will be the thrill of victory, the sensation of trampling on an enemy who’s helpless. If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face, forever. The moral to be drawn from this dangerous nightmare situation is a simple one: don’t let it happen. It depends on you.
"A people that elect corrupt politicians, imposters, thieves and traitors are not victims, but accomplices."
“The whole secret lies in confusing the enemy, so that he cannot fathom our real intent.”
