10. Big Brother's Rulers

"The oligarchs - and a few lawyers and priests and so forth who lived on them - are the lords of the earth. Everything exists for their benefit. The ordinary people, the workers - are their slaves. They could do what they liked with you. They could ship you off to Canada like cattle. They could sleep with your daughters if they chose. They could order you to be flogged with something called a cat-o'-nine tails. You had to take your cap off when you passed them. Every oligarch went about with a gang of lackeys. Salvation Army, Roman Catholics, Jews, Indians - and other sorts - were lackeys, parasites, flunkies of the ruling class."

A member of the Inner Party enjoys the luxury of a large, well-appointed flat, better textures of his clothes, the better quality of his food and drink and tobacco, his two or three servants, his private motor-car or helicopter. This sets him in a different world from a member of the Outer Party, and the members of the Outer Party have a similar advantage in comparison with the submerged masses known as "the proles." The social atmosphere is that of a besieged city, where the possession of a lump of horseflesh makes the difference between wealth and poverty.

In principle, membership of these three groups is not hereditary. The child of Inner Party parents is in theory not born into the Inner Party. Admission to either branch of the Party is by examination, taken at the age of sixteen. Nor is there any racial discrimination, or any marked domination of one province by another. Jews, Negroes, South Americans of pure Indian blood are to be found in the highest ranks of the Party, and the administrators of any area are always drawn from the inhabitants of that area. In no part of Oceania do the inhabitants have the feeling that they are a colonial population ruled from a distant capital. Oceania has no capital, and its titular head is a person whose whereabouts nobody knows. Except that English is its chief lingua franca and Newspeak its official language, it is not centralized in any way. Its rulers are not held together by blood-ties but by adherence to a common doctrine. It is true that our society is stratified, and very rigidly stratified, on what at first sight appear to be hereditary lines.

In the crucial years, the fact that the Party was not a hereditary body did a great deal to neutralize opposition. The older kind of Socialist, who had been trained to fight against something called "class privilege", assumed that what is not hereditary cannot be permanent. He did not see that the continuity of an oligarchy need not be physical, nor did he pause to reflect that hereditary aristocracies have always been shortlived, whereas adoptive organizations such as the Catholic Church have sometimes lasted for hundred or thousands of years. The essence of oligarchical rule is not father-to-son inheritance, but the persistence of a certain world-view and a certain way of life, imposed by the dead upon the living. A ruling group is a ruling group so long as it can nominate its successors. The Party is not concerned with perpetuating its blood but with perpetuating itself. Who wields power is not important, provided that the hierarchical structure remains always the same.

Saudi, Norway gov'ts give millions to Bill Clinton, AP News, Jan 1, 2010
WASHINGTON (AP) - Foreign countries including Saudi Arabia and Norway gave millions of dollars to former President Bill Clinton's charity as Hillary Rodham Clinton served her first year as President Barack Obama's secretary of state. A donor list released on New Year's Day by the William J. Clinton Foundation shows that Saudi Arabia and Norway each donated somewhere between $10 million to $25 million to the former president's charity. The biggest donors included the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which gave more than $25 million. The Clintons agreed to annually disclose the names of donors to the former president's foundation to address concerns about potential conflicts of interest between his fundraising abroad and his wife's role in helping direct administration foreign policy. "I am deeply grateful to the many generous contributors who made it possible for my foundation to accomplish so much in 2009, including increasing the number of people on lifesaving HIV/AIDS treatment, helping cities reduce their greenhouse gas emissions, and inspiring millions of children to lead healthier lives," Bill Clinton said in a written statement. In releasing the 2009 list Friday, the foundation didn't identify individual contributors' employers, nationalities or any other details. It gave only ranges rather than precise donations, and didn't provide a fundraising total. The foundation said that more than 90 percent of the gifts it received last year were in donations of $250 or less. The Clintons were under no legal obligation to identify foundation donors. Presidents typically do not disclose the names of those who give to their foundations, even when the givers include foreign governments. Former President George W. Bush hasn't said who is contributing to construction of his presidential library in Texas, for example. The William J. Clinton Foundation works in the United States and around the world on such issues as health care, particularly HIV/AIDS; climate change; and economic development. It also runs the Clinton Presidential Center in Little Rock, Ark., which includes Clinton's presidential library. The Clintons released the first foundation donor list in December 2008. They also agreed that new donations from foreign governments would be examined by government ethics officers. An Obama spokesman said at the time that the agreement would meet the incoming president's transparency promise and help to avoid potential conflicts of interest. In addition to Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates' foundation, Canadian mining tycoon and Radcliffe Foundation chief executive Frank Giustra, the Children's Investment Fund Foundation and UNITAID each gave more than $25 million. Bill Clinton joined Giustra on a 2005 trip to Kazakhstan, whose human-rights record Hillary Rodham Clinton had criticized, and within days after the pair met with Kazakhstan's president, Giustra's business lined up preliminary agreements giving it rights to buy into uranium projects controlled by a Kazakhstan state-owned enterprise. Bill Clinton has said he had nothing to do with the arrangement. In UNITAID's case, almost all of the money simply passed through the foundation to buy commodities, the foundation said. Besides Norway and Saudi Arabia, those giving $10 million to $25 million included AUSAID, the Australian government's overseas aid program; longtime Democratic Party donors and fundraisers Stephen Bing and Fred Eychaner; and COPRESIDA, a Dominican Republic government agency formed to fight AIDS, whose donation passed through the foundation for commodity procurement.
