Description:

This is my first ever KDE "enhancement". I made it as a promotion item for my website dergrossebruder.org, which focusses on privacy.

No, this is not a fan item for Leninists, but Lenin is - for us and the website - a symbol for surveillance and control, something we don't like (to put it mildly ...)

As Lenin said: "Trust is good, but control is better."

Thomas, you should have mentioned somewhere what "dergroßebruder" means.

English speaking people could think you were a Lenin fan. Maybe this is what Scaramanga thought.

So, now, for the English speakers: "dergrossebruder" means "big brother" and Thomas´ web site is _not_ a communist or Lenin or Stalin fan site, but a community for people who don´t want to live in a 1984-like state. And Lenin may just be a perfect symbol for such tyranny. Hopefully it´s a bit clearer now.

Yes, you are right. We chose Lenin as our 'mascot', because Orwell himself has stated, that he has meant the USSR in '1984'. And the terror and surveillance didn't start with Stalin, but with Lenin, Stalin just took the existing system and took it one step further. But even some Germans just look at Lenin and think we are Leninists, which is kind of funny, anyway.
