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.

George Orwell

1984. Part 3, Chapter 3. O’Brien to Winston. Power means control and the Party is interested in complete control and domination of mankind.
