Makt er ikke et middel, men et mål.
1984 (1984), del 3. kap. 3.
Power is not a means; it is an end.
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.
Levde: 1903 - 1950
