What if this happens to you? November 16, 2012

Posted by proeconomia in Main, News on Greece, On the crisis, Opinion.

I thought that you may find the following, in the wake of recent events in Greece, of potential interest (and it ain’t mine alright!)

“The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power, pure power. What pure power means you will understand presently. We are different from 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…One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship…Now you begin to understand me.” from George Orwell’s 1984.

It has, of course, multiple interpretations…pick the one you consider most suitable!
