House of Cards-POWER

Upon finishing Season 4 of House of Cards, I  was reminded of a line in the book Nineteen Eighty-Four, which explains the rationale for the dystopian system. The main character Winston Smith is told, “the Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power. Not wealth or luxury or long life or happiness: only power, pure power”.

Season 5 to be released May 30th.

 Justin Borden discusses the series’ theme of power, how it plays out in season 4, and what it could mean for season 5.
