"...always there will be the intoxication of power, constantly increasing and constantly growing subtler. Always, at every moment, there will be the thrill of victory, the sensation of trampling on an enemy who is helpless. If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face — forever."
- George Orwell, 1984
"Our job is basically to keep the boot on the neck of British Petroleum."
- Interior Secretary Ken Salazar
