No, They Are Not Communists (10 person items)

"George Orwell was not a Socialist, no matter what the Trotskyites try to tell you. He was just that, a Trotskyite that preached non stop hate. A real nutcase of one at that. If you read anything Orwell writes, it's nothing but fear and paranoia drenched and swallowed up in hatred for all things he disagrees with between poorly written dialogue and cliche catchphrases that people like using to tell you "Communism is bad yo!". Orwell references go far and beyond Anti-Communism, let alone get used "

My Inspirations (8 person items)

" People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf. In a time of universal deceit - telling the truth is a revolutionary act.Freedom is the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.Political language... is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind.If you want a vision of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face - forever.War is peace. Freedom is"

"In a town like London there are always plenty of not quite certifiable lunatics walking the streets, and they tend to gravitate towards bookshops, because a bookshop is one of the few places where you can hang about for a long time without spending any money. "

It resembles my own mind except that you happen to be insane.” “The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power. We are different from all the oligarchies of the past in that we know what we are doing. All the others were cowards and hypocrites. They neve"
