I'm assuming a rational, coherent policy would almost certainly have to be imposed ... Could such a policy be introduced successfully? How? I suppose Labour was able to affect significant changes but these were hardly for the better and tended to increase bureaucracy which almost never raises significant opposition.
I'm beginning to wonder if "The High" actually want a coherent policy or just "controlled insanity"
. It seemed that soon after The Ministry of "Justice" was formed, we saw some huge injustices such as the extradition on almost a whim, of some British people through the European Arrest Warrant. What's next? Maybe more of Orwell's prophecies, in 1984, will come about:
Even the names of the four Ministries by which we are governed exhibits a sort of impudence in their deliberate reversal of the facts.
The Ministry of Peace concerns itself with war,
the Ministry of Truth with lies,
the Ministry of Love with torture and
the Ministry of Plenty with starvation.
These contradictions are not accidental, nor do they result from ordinary hypocrisy: they are deliberate exercises in doublethink. For it is only by reconciling contradictions that power can be retained indefinitely. In no other way could the ancient cycle be broken. If human equality is to be forever averted-if the High, as we called them, are to keep their places permanently-then the prevailing mental condition must be controlled insanity.
