Fascism should more appropriately be called Corporatism because it is a merger of state and corporate powerBenito Mussolini
The first truth is that the liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to a point where it becomes stronger than their democratic state itself. That, in its essence, is fascism ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or by any other controlling private power.... Among us today a concentration of private power without equal in history is growing.Ben Franklin
The keystone of the Fascist doctrine is its conception of the State, of its essence, its functions, and its aims. For Fascism the State is absolute, individuals and groups relative.Benito Mussolini
All that is needed to set us definitely on the road to a Fascist society is war. It will of course be a modified form of Fascism at first.John T. Flynn

Gary Lawrence, a planner for the city of Seattle, and advisor to the President's Council on Sustainable Development
Land, because of its unique nature and the crucial role it plays in human settlements, cannot be treated as an ordinary asset, controlled by individuals and subject to the pressures and inefficiencies of the market. Private land ownership is also a principal instrument of accumulation and concentration of wealth and therefore contributes to social injustice; if unchecked, it may become a major obstacle in the planning and implementation of development schemes. Social justice, urban renewal and development, the provision of decent dwellings-and healthy conditions for the people can only be achieved if land is used in the interests of society as a whole.United Nations Conference on Human Settlements - 11 June 1976
Agenda 21 is a global plan to inventory and control all land, all water, all minerals, all plants, all animals, all construction, all means of production, all energy, all education, all information, and all human beings in the world. Inventory and control.Rosa Koire

There's a war out there old friend, a world war, and it's not about who's got the most bullets. It's about who controls the information: about how we think, how we see and hear, how we work. It's all about information.Sneakers, MCA Universal Pictures, 1992
A lie told often enough becomes the truth.Vladimir Lenin
Terrorism: A system of government that seeks to rule by intimidation. Unlawful acts of violence committed in an organised attempt to overthrow government.Funk & Wagnalls New Comprehensive English Dictionary
The statesmen will invent cheap lies, putting the blame upon the nation that is attacked, and every man will be glad of those conscience soothing falsities, and will diligently study them, and refuse to examine any refutations of them, and thus he will by and by convince himself that the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep he enjoys after this process of grotesque self-deception. Mark Twain

Now I will tell you the answer to my question. It is this. 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. All the others, even those who resembled ourselves, were cowards and hypocrites. The German Nazis and the Russian Communists came very close to us in their methods, but they never had the courage to recognize their own motives. They pretended, perhaps they even believed, that they had seized power unwillingly and for a limited time, and that just around the corner there lay a paradise where human beings would be free and equal. We are not like that. We know what no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means, it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution, one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power. Now you begin to understand me.George Orwell, 1984
The crux of the biscuit is the apostrophe.Frank Zappa
Until and unless you discover that money is the root of all good, you ask for your own destruction. When money ceases to become the means by which men deal with one another, then men become the tools of other men. Blood, whips and guns or dollars. Take your choice, there is no other.Ayn Rand
Anyone who doesn't take truth seriously in small matters cannot be trusted in large ones either.Albert Einstein
Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth.Buddha
Belief is a virus, and once it gets into you, its first order of business is to preserve itself, and the way it preserves itself is to keep you from having any doubts, and the way it keeps you from doubting is to blind you to the way things really are. Evidence contrary to the belief can be staring you straight in the face, and you won't see it... True believers just don't see...Unknown
Belief is the greatest sin!Heron Stone
Doublethink means the power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one's mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them.George Orwell, 1984
The choice for mankind lies between freedom and happiness and for the great bulk of mankind, happiness is better.George Orwell, 1984

The threat posed by Bank of America isn't just financial it's a full blown assault on the American dream.

If this is what winning in our system looks like, who doesn't want to be a loser?Matt Taibbi
Marriage, laws, the police, armies and navies are the mark of human incompetence.Dora Russell

The mindset that prevents organization of the masses, is the same one that extolls the virtues of singular individualism.anti_theocon

The bold effort the present bank has made to control the Government, the distress it has wantonly produced ... are but premonitions of the fate that awaits the American People should they be deluded into a perpetuation of this institution (The Bank of the United States), or the establishment of another like it.Andrew Jackson (December 2, 1834)
When Plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men, they create for themselves, in the course of time, a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it.Frederic Bastiat

Some people object to libertarian ideas because there are too many irresponsible people in the world, people who will cause trouble if the government doesn't restrain them.Harry Browne
If you analyze it I believe the very heart and soul of conservatism is libertarianism. I think conservatism is really a misnomer just as liberalism is a misnomer for the liberals — if we were back in the days of the Revolution, so-called conservatives today would be the Liberals and the liberals would be the Tories. The basis of conservatism is a desire for less government interference or less centralized authority or more individual freedom and this is a pretty general description also of what libertarianism is.Ronald Reagan
The real division is not between conservatives and revolutionaries but between authoritarians and libertarians.George Orwell
People are naturally born as Libertarians till governments and oppressive societies force them to adopt their ideologies and their ways.Hany Ghoraba
Anarchy is True Libertarianism. The people have no need for the state, the state cannot exist without the people. Voluntary interaction between people in all aspects of life and society is Freedom, anything else is government by Force and Coercion.Grimnir
Anarchism is not a romantic fable but the hardheaded realization, based on five thousand years of experience, that we cannot entrust the management of our lives to kings, priests, politicians, generals, and county commissioners.Edward Abbey
Anarchism is founded on the observation that since few men are wise enough to rule themselves, even fewer are wise enough to rule others.Edward Abbey
Anarchy is a state of society where the only government is reason.Michael Schwab
Anarchists have a 'bad name' in the media, not because they can point to one indiscriminate massacre by anarchists there have been none, but because the one thing holders of power fear is that they personally should be held responsible for their own actionsStuart Christie
An anarchist is someone who doesn't need a cop to make him behave.Ammon Hennacy
The important question is, therefore, not whether anarchy is possible or not, but whether we can so enlarge the scope and influence of libertarian methods that they become the normal way in which human beings organise their society.Colin Ward
Anarchism has but one infallible, unchangeable motto, Freedom. Freedom to discover any truth, freedom to develop, to live naturally and fully.Lucy Parsons
Patriots always talk of dying for their country but never of killing for their country.Bertrand Russell

Insanity in individuals is something rare but in groups, parties, nations and epochs, it is the rule.Friedrich Nietzsche

Insanity a perfectly rational adjustment to an insane world.R. D. Laing
There is no great genius without a mixture of madness.Aristotle
A person needs a little madness, or else they never dare cut the rope and be free.B Nikos Kazantzakis
Once the government becomes the supplier of people's needs, there is no limit to the needs that will be claimed as a basic right.Lawrence Auster

A welfare state is frightened of every poor person who tries to get in and every rich person who tries to get out.Harry Browne
The sovereignty fetish is still so strong in the public mind, that there would appear to be little chance of winning popular assent to American membership in anything approaching a super state organization. Much will depend on the kind of approach which is used in further popular education. Council on Foreign Relations
The more subsidized it is, the less free it is. What is known as free education is the least free of all, for it is a state owned institution, it is socialized education just like socialized medicine or the socialized post office and cannot possibly be separated from political control.Frank Chodorov
Wherever is found what is called a paternal government, there is found state education. It has been discovered that the best way to insure implicit obedience is to commence tyranny in the nursery.Benjamin Disraeli

The one pervading evil of democracy is the tyranny of the majority, or rather of that party, not always the majority, that succeeds, by force or fraud, in carrying elections.Lord Acton

Once again, the puppets on Capitol Hill are about to slam the Muppets on Main Street. The country still hasn't recovered from the Wall Street, induced financial cataclysm of 2008, yet Congress is preparing to enact the Orwellian 'JOBS Act'Eliot Spitzer
There was no imminent threat. This was made up in Texas, announced in January to the Republican leadership that war was going to take place and was going to be good politically. This whole thing was a fraud. a bill that should in fact be called the 'Return Fraud to Wall Street in One Easy Step Act.'Edward Kennedy
War is wretched beyond description, and only a fool or a fraud could sentimentalize its cruel reality.John McCain
John McCain... looks like a fraud to me.Young Jeezy

There was never a good war, or a bad peace.Benjamin Franklin
There is no instance of a nation benefitting from prolonged warfare.Sun Tzu

There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable.There is another theory which states that this has already happened.Douglas Adams
Justifying conscription to promote the cause of liberty is one of the most bizarre notions ever conceived by man! Forced servitude, with the risk of death and serious injury as a price to live free, makes no sense.Ron Paul

One day humanity will play with law just as children play with disused objects, not in order to restore them to their canonical use but to free them from it for good.Giorgio Agamben
...there is no head of state in the world today who is not in virtuality a criminal. Those who shoulder the dreary mantle of sovereignty know that their turn may come to be branded a criminal by their colleagues. We certainly will not be the ones to complain. For the sovereign, who freely consented to donning the executioner's clothes, is now finally manifesting his originary kinship with the criminal.Giorgio Agamben

Humans are 98% language monkeys.Heron Stone
Intellectual property has the shelf life of a banana.Bill Gates
The world is not sliding, but galloping into a new transnational dystopia. This development has not been properly recognized outside of national security circles. It has been hidden by secrecy, complexity and scale. The internet, our greatest tool of emancipation, has been transformed into the most dangerous facilitator of totalitarianism we have ever seen. The internet is a threat to human civilization.Julian Assange
For those who believe executive branch officials will voluntarily interpret their surveillance authorities with restraint, I believe it is more likely that I will achieve my life-long dream of playing in the NBA. Ron Wyden

There is no better illustration of that crisis than the fact that the president is openly violating our nation's laws by authorizing the NSA to engage in warrantless surveillance of U.S. citizens.John Conyers (January 20, 2006 talking about G.W. Bush)

All over the world copyright holders are trying to limit consumers' rights. We cannot have that.Jon Johansen

Only one thing is impossible for God: To find any sense in any copyright law on the planet.Mark Twain

Anywhere, anytime ordinary people are given the chance to choose, the choice is the same: freedom, not tyranny, democracy, not dictatorship, the rule of law, not the rule of the secret police.Tony Blair
After a shooting spree, they always want to take the guns away from the people who didn't do it. I sure as hell wouldn't want to live in a society where the only people allowed guns are the police and the military.William S. Burroughs
Let me be clear about this. I don't have a drug problem. I have a police problem.Keith Richards
The two principles referred to are Authority and Liberty, and the names of the two schools of Socialistic thought which fully and unreservedly represent one or the other of them are, respectively, State Socialism and Anarchism.Benjamin Tucker
In the matter of the maintenance and rearing of children the Anarchists would neither institute the communistic nursery which the State Socialists favor nor keep the communistic school system which now prevails.Benjamin Tucker
This brings us to Anarchism, which may be described as the doctrine that all the affairs of men should be managed by individuals or voluntary associations, and that the State should be abolished.Benjamin Tucker
The Anarchists answer that the abolition of the State will leave in existence a defensive association, resting no longer on a compulsory but on a voluntary basis, which will restrain invaders by any means that may prove necessary.Benjamin Tucker
Aggression is simply another name for government.Benjamin Tucker
And this is the Anarchistic definition of the State: the embodiment of the principle of invasion in an individual, or a band of individuals, assuming to act as representatives or masters of the entire people within a given area.Benjamin Tucker
We are here, on earth. Not one of us has any right to the earth.Benjamin Tucker
High frequency trading on steroids. Nanex spotted the trading activity when 4% of the traffic volume were for orders by a computer algorithm where none of them ended in a single trade. Quite clearly the intention was to move the market in a certain direction. It's just another example that the whole financial system is rotten to the core.Carlos Murphy
The stock market is rigged. Lots of people think so. They think the market exists for the benefit of insiders. This is an old complaint, but it seems to hang particularly thick in the air these days.Chris Mayer
When the policy making group met last month, it announced Quantitative Easing Forever an open ended, money-printing operation that was supposed to thrill Wall Street. That didn't happen.John Crudele

The greatest crime since World War II has been U.S. foreign policy.Ramsey Clark
If they turn on the radars we're going to blow up their goddamn SAMs (surface-to-air missiles). They know we own their country. We own their airspace... We dictate the way they live and talk. And that's what's great about America right now. It's a good thing, especially when there's a lot of oil out there we need.U.S. Brig. General William Looney
I will never apologize for the United States of America, I don't care what the facts are.President George Bush 1988
It's really not a number I'm terribly interested in.General Colin Powell (When asked about the number of Iraqi people who were slaughtered by Americans in the 1991 Desert Storm terror campaign (200,000 people!))
Even Orwell didn't go so far as to write: We've always been at war with (REDACTED).Josh in CharlotteNC

The object in life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane.Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius
The article provided background and spin on the defeat of the recent Paul motion to cut aid to Egypt and included (Senator Lindsey) Graham read aloud a letter from the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) opposing Pauls amendment...(Senator John) McCain needled Paul. The question here is whether the senator from Kentucky knows whats better for Israel, or Israel.Random Info
Those in power must spend a lot of their time laughing at us.Alice Walker
A ruling intelligentsia, whether in Europe, Asia or Africa, treats the masses as raw material to be experimented on, processed, and wasted at will.Eric Hoffer
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 ... A ruling group is a ruling group so long as it can nominate its successors ... Who wields power is not important, provided that the hierarchical structure remains always the sameGeorge Orwell
Representative government is artifice, a political myth, designed to conceal from the masses the dominance of a self-selected, self-perpetuating, and self-serving traditional ruling class.Giuseppe Prezzolini

After all, to get the whole universe totally wrong in the face of clear evidence for over 75 years merits monumental embarrassment and should induce a modicum of humility.Halton Arp
War is just a racket. A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of people. Only a small inside group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few at the expense of the masses.Smedley Butler
Out of war nations acquire additional territory, if they are victorious. They just take it. This newly acquired territory promptly is exploited by the few the selfsame few who wrung dollars out of blood in the war. The general public shoulders the bill.Smedley Butler
I helped purify Nicaragua for the international banking house of Brown Brothers in 1909, 1912. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for American sugar interests in 1916. In China I helped to see to it that Standard Oil went its way unmolested.Smedley Butler

War is just a racket... I believe in adequate defense at the coastline and nothing else.Smedley Butler
My mental faculties remained in suspended animation while I obeyed the orders of the higher-ups. This is typical with everyone in the military.Smedley Butler

Corporations are like protean bacteria, you hit them with accountability and they mutate and change their names.Doug Anderson
He had learned that close-held secrets could often be cracked by going all the way to the top and there making himself unbearably unpleasant. He knew that such twisting of the tiger's tail was dangerous, for he understood the psychopathology of great power.Robert A. Heinlein Stranger in a Strange Land
The great enemy of clear language is insincerity. When there is a gap between one's real and one's declared aims, one turns as it were instinctively to long words and exhausted idioms, like a cuttlefish spurting out ink.George Orwell A Collection of Essays
A body of men holding themselves accountable to nobody ought not to be trusted by anybody.Thomas Paine
There was no military reason to drop atomic bombs on Japan. They were used as terrorist weapons killing innocent people to influence other people.Harry Browne
It is well known that in war, the first casualty is truth that during any war truth is forsaken for propaganda.Harry Browne
Government is force, pure and simple. There's no way to sugar-coat that. And because government is force, it will attract the worst elements of society people who want to use government to avoid having to earn their living and to avoid having to persuade others to accept their ideas voluntarily.Harry Browne
But, actually, it is only Americans who say that our freedoms and prosperity are the reason foreigners hate us. If you ask the foreigners, they make it clear that it's America's bullying foreign policy they detest.Harry Browne
The important thing is to concentrate upon what you can do by yourself, upon your own initiative.Harry Browne
Forcing people to be generous isn't humanitarian, effective, compassionate or moral. Only acts that are truly voluntary for all concerned can be truly compassionate.Harry Browne

Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country.Hermann Göring
Wars, conflict, it's all business. One murder makes a villain, millions a hero.Charles Chaplin
I remain just one thing, and one thing only and that is a clown. It places me on a far higher plane than any politician.Charles Chaplin
My prodigious sin was, and still is, being a non-conformist. Although I am not a Communist I refused to fall in line by hating them.Charles Chaplin
I am not a political man and I have no political convictions. I am an individual and a believer in liberty. That is all the politics I have. On the other hand I am not a super-patriot. Super-patriotism leads to Hitlerism — and we've had our lesson there.Charles Chaplin
I am at peace with God, my conflict is with man.Charles Chaplin
Everything the state says is a lie and everything it has is stolen.Nietzsche
Unbind your mind there is no time to lick your stamps and paste them in. dis-corporate, and we'll begin?Frank Zappa
When words lose their meaning, people lose their liberty.Confucius
Why of course the people don't want war. Why should some poor slob on a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best he can get out of it is to come back to his farm in one piece? Naturally the common people don't want war: neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country.Hermann Goering
A liar will not be believed, even when he speaks the truth.Aesop
Popular culture tells you that schools and parents don't know what's going on, the police are dogs, politicians are all liars and scum, and any crime that's not committed by the Mafia is done by the CIA.Stanley Crouch
Our government has kept us in a perpetual state of fear kept us in a continuous stampede of patriotic fervor with the cry of grave national emergency. Always there has been some terrible evil at home or some monstrous foreign power that was going to gobble us up if we did not blindly rally behind it by furnishing the exorbitant fundsdemanded. Yet, in retrospect, these disasters seem never to have happened, seem never to have been quite real.General Douglas MacArthur
All governments are run by liars and nothing they say should be believed.I. F. Stone, Polemics and Prophecies
I can't really make fun of zombies. They're not liars. They're not cheats.George A. Romero
Every war results from the struggle for markets and spheres of influence, and every war is sold to the public by professional liars and totally sincere religious maniacs, as a Holy Crusade to save God and Goodness from Satan and Evil.Robert Anton Wilson
He who does not bellow the truth when he knows the truth makes himself the accomplice of liars and forgers.Charles Peguy
The American people are tired of liars and people who pretend to be something they're not.Hillary Clinton

Everybody has to move, run and grab as many hilltops as they can to enlarge the settlements because everything we take now will stay ours... Everything we don't grab will go to them.Ariel Sharon

How can we return the occupied territories? There is nobody to return them to.Golda Meir
If every single Jew born anywhere in the world has the right to become an Israeli citizen, then all the Palestinians who were chucked out of Palestine by the Zionist Government should have the same right, very simple.Tariq Ali
We are benefiting from one thing, and that is the attacks on the twin towers and the pentagon and the American struggle in Iraq. These events swung American public opinion in our favor.Benjamin Netanyahu
The first right of every human being is the right of self-defense. Without that right, all other rights are meaningless. The right of self-defense is not something the government bestows upon its citizens. It is an inalienable right, older than the Constitution itself. It existed prior to government and prior to the social contract of our Constitution.Larry Craig Senator (R-Idaho)
In fact, if law were restricted to protecting all persons, all liberties, and all properties, if law were nothing more than the organized combination of the individual's right to self-defense, if law were the obstacle, the check, the punisher of all oppression and plunder is it likely that we citizens would then argue much about the extent of the franchise?Frederic Bastiat, The Law
Law is solely the organization of the individual right of self-defense which existed before law was formalized. Law is justice. Frederic Bastiat, The Law
Most gun control arguments miss the point. If all control boils fundamentally to force, how can one resist aggression without equal force? How can a truly free state exist if the individual citizen is enslaved to the forceful will of individual or organized aggressors? It cannot.Tiffany Madison
The Second Amendment is timeless for our Founders grasped that self-defense is three-fold: every free individual must protect themselves against the evil will of the man, the mob and the state.Tiffany Madison
Every war when it comes, or before it comes, is represented not as a war but as an act of self-defense against a homicidal maniac.George Orwell
Legitimate use of violence can only be that which is required in self-defense.Ron Paul
We did not find it difficult to deal with Bush and his administration, because it is similar to regimes in our countries both types include many who are full of arrogance and greed.Osama bin Laden
Enough is enough. Enough of the waste. Enough of the spending. Enough of the debt. Enough of the arrogance in Washington, D.C.Dan Benishek
He knows nothing, and he thinks he knows everything. That points clearly to a political career.George Bernard Shaw
Obamacare represents a shocking display of political arrogance. It's about time Washington started listening to Americans' common sense voices.Fred Upton
Americans must outgrow the unbecoming arrogance that leads us to assert that America somehow owns a monopoly on goodness and truth a belief that leads some to view the world as but a stage on which to play out the great historical drama: the United States of America versus the Powers of Evil.Feisal Abdul Rauf
Bush promised a foreign policy of humility and a domestic policy of compassion. He has given us a foreign policy of arrogance and a domestic policy that is cynical, myopic and cruel.Joe Klein
This nuclear option is ultimately an example of the arrogance of power.Joe Biden
All too often arrogance accompanies strength, and we must never assume that justice is on the side of the strong. The use of power must always be accompanied by moral choice.Theodore Bikel
He who dictates and formulates the words and phrases we use, he who is master of the press and radio, is master of the mind. Repeat mechanically your assumptions and suggestions, diminish the opportunity for communicating dissent and opposition. This is the formula for political conditioning of the masses.Joost Meerloo
As long as enough people can be frightened, then all people can be ruled. That is how it works in a democratic system and mass fear becomes the ticket to destroy rights across the board.James Bovard
Just a simple choice, right now, between fear and love. The eyes of fear want you to put bigger locks on your doors, buy guns, close yourself off. The eyes of love instead see all of us as one.Bill Hicks
I think it's too easy often to find a villain out of the headlines and to then repeat that villainy again and again and again. You know, traditionally, America has always looked to scapegoat someone as the boogie man.Edward Zwick
I heard the tongues of angels and the tongues of men and it all sounded no different to me.Bob Dylan
It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning.Henry Ford
History is hard to know, because of all the hired bullshit, but even without being sure of history it seems entirely reasonable to think that every now and then the energy of a whole generation comes to a head in a long fine flash, for reasons that nobody really understands at the time and which never explain, in retrospect, what actually happened.Hunter S Thompson
Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn't go awayPhilip K. Dick
Chicago is known for good steaks, expensive stores and beautiful architecture. Unfortunately, the Windy City also enjoys a reputation for corrupt politics, violent crime, and some of the strictest gun control laws anywhere in the country.Bob Barr
Skeptical scrutiny is the means, in both science and religion, by which deep thoughts can be winnowed from deep nonsense.Carl Sagan
When you make the finding yourself even if you're the last person on Earth to see the light you'll never forget it.Carl Sagan
But the fact that some geniuses were laughed at does not imply that all who are laughed at are geniuses. They laughed at Columbus, they laughed at Fulton, they laughed at the Wright Brothers. But they also laughed at Bozo the Clown.Carl Sagan
If you wish to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first invent the universe.Carl Sagan
It is far better to grasp the universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring.Carl Sagan
Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.Carl Sagan
We live in a society exquisitely dependent on science and technology, in which hardly anyone knows anything about science and technology.Carl Sagan
Those who deny me the freedom to carry a firearm with which to protect my family and myself, are as complicit and guilty as the perpetrator should we be harmed or murdered by an act of violence.Charles F. Chuck Bearden
Those gun control activists advocating exchanging a liberty for safety should recall that the safest place on earth is solitary confinement at Leavenworth.Rand T. Lennox
Keeping and bearing arms is not only a fundamental right, it is a fundamental duty upon which all liberty and sovereignty is based.Donald L. Cline
Anybody who's in favor of gun control is a fucking moron.Jackie Mason
Most gun control arguments miss the point. If all control boils fundamentally to force, how can one resist aggression without equal force? How can a truly free state exist if the individual citizen is enslaved to the forceful will of individual or organized aggressors? It cannot.Tiffany Madison
Gun control means control. It means control for the government and the government starts controlling the people.Luke Scott
Only a free and unrestrained press can effectively expose deception in government.Hugo L. Black
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.First Amendment to the United States Constitution (1791)
Keeping and bearing arms is not only a fundamental right, it is a fundamental duty upon which all liberty and sovereignty is based.Donald L. Cline
The press is the enemy.Richard M. Nixon
The press should be not only a collective propagandist and a collective agitator, but also a collective organizer of the masses.Vladimir Lenin (The controllers behind the U.S. Government have this exact philosophy)
A free press can, of course, be good or bad, but, most certainly without freedom, the press will never be anything but bad.Albert Camus
Where the press is free and every man able to read, all is safe.Thomas Jefferson
Since the State necessarily lives by the compulsory confiscation of private capital, and since its expansion necessarily involves ever-greater incursions on private individuals and private enterprise, we must assert that the state is profoundly and inherently anti-capitalist.Murray Rothbard
It is clearly absurd to limit the term 'education' to a person's formal schooling.Murray Rothbard
The libertarian creed, finally, offers the fulfillment of the best of the American past along with the promise of a far better future. Even more than conservatives... libertarians are squarely in the great classical liberal tradition that built the United States and bestowed on us the American heritage of individual liberty, a peaceful foreign policy, minimal government, and a free-market economy.Murray Rothbard
If a man has the right to self-ownership, to the control of his life, then in the real world he must also have the right to sustain his life by grappling with and transforming resources, he must be able to own the ground and the resources on which he stands and which he must use. In short, to sustain his 'human right.'Murray Rothbard
This, by the way, is the welfare state in action: Its a whole bunch of special interest groups screwing consumers and taxpayers, and making them think they're really benefiting.Murray Rothbard
Behind the honeyed but patently absurd pleas for equality is a ruthless drive for placing themselves (the elites) at the top of a new hierarchy of power.Murray Rothbard
I define anarchist society as one where there is no legal possibility for coercive aggression against the person or property of any individual. Anarchists oppose the State because it has its very being in such aggression, namely, the expropriation of private property through taxation, the coercive exclusion of other providers of defense service from its territory, and all of the other depredations and coercions that are built upon these twin foci of invasions of individual rights.Murray Rothbard
its job is to fight propaganda not with counterpropaganda but with truth. Unfortunately, this is not something democracies are good at.Jean-Francois Revel
The only escape from the miseries of life are music and cats...Albert Einstein
The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion.Albert Camus
When you see a phrase like cracking down being used by any government, anywhere, about anything, you know they are a tyrannyBarMan
With the NDAA, his failure to close Guantanamo Bay and the ramping use of drones, President Obama looks suspiciously like President Bush, a man on a quest for American Empire.Justin Sane
This empire, unlike any other in the history of the world, has been built primarily through economic manipulation, through cheating, through fraud, through seducing people into our way of life, through the economic hit men. I was very much a part of that.John Perkins
You know, when I was a girl, the idea that the British Empire could ever end was absolutely inconceivable. And it just disappeared, like all the other empires.Doris Lessing
On 16 September 1985, when the Commerce Department announced that the United States had become a debtor nation, the American Empire died.Gore Vidal
The government, which was designed for the people, has got into the hands of the bosses and their employers, the special interests. An invisible empire has been set up above the forms of democracy.Woodrow Wilson
The Roman Empire was very, very much like us. They lost their moral core, their sense of values in terms of who they were. And after all of those things converged together, they just went right down the tubes very quickly.Benjamin Carson
An empire founded by war has to maintain itself by war.Charles de Montesquieu
To measure prices by a currency that is called by the same names as gold, but that is really inferior in value to gold, and then because those prices are nominally higher than gold prices to say that they are inflated, relatively to gold, is a perfect absurdity.Lysander Spooner
In reality there is no such thing as an inflation of prices, relatively to gold. There is such a thing as a depreciated paper currency.Lysander Spooner
A weak currency is the sign of a weak economy, and a weak economy leads to a weak nation.Ross Perot
Mischief springs from the power which the moneyed interest derives from a paper currency which they are able to control, from the multitude of corporations with exclusive privileges... which are employed altogether for their benefit.Andrew Jackson
Believe me, the next step is a currency crisis because there will be a rejection of the dollar, the rejection of the dollar is a big, big event, and then your personal liberties are going to be severely threatened.Ron Paul
The best way to destroy the capitalist system is to debauch the currency.Vladimir Lenin
The first panacea for a mismanaged nation is inflation of the currency, the second is war. Both bring a temporary prosperity, both bring a permanent ruin. But both are the refuge of political and economic opportunists.Ernest Hemingway
I don't want the technology of the 1950s, but I want the free market of the 1950s.Peter Schiff
The government can't create jobs, they'll destroy jobs trying to do it. The government doesn't have any money, all they have is a printing press. We need to free markets to create jobs, if the government wants to help, they should reduce their burden on the economy.Peter Schiff
When the dollar collapses, it's not doing it in a vacuum. If the dollar loses value, it's doing so relative to some other currency. So the purchasing power that we lose, somebody else gets.Peter Schiff
People should have an escape valve for their money, their assets. If you have substantial financial assets, the government is going to confiscate the purchasing power of those assets and spend it.Peter Schiff
Gold has intrinsic value. The problem with the dollar is it has no intrinsic value. And if the Federal Reserve is going to spend trillions of them to buy up all these bad mortgages and all other kinds of bad debt, the dollar is going to lose all of its value. Gold will store its value, and you'll always be able to buy more food with your gold.Peter Schiff
What got us out of the depression was capitalism, and we would have gotten out a lot quicker had the government not intervened.Peter Schiff
At some point, the dollar has to give. You can't just keep printing money, and monetizing debt, and buying bonds, without the dollar imploding.Peter Schiff
Mere inflation that is, the mere issuance of more money, with the consequence of higher wages and prices may look like the creation of more demand. But in terms of the actual production and exchange of real things it is not.Henry Hazlitt
When the government makes loans or subsidies to business, what it does is to tax successful private business in order to support unsuccessful private business.Henry Hazlitt
Economics is haunted by more fallacies than any other study known to man. This is no accident. The inherent difficulties of the subject would be great enough in any case, but they are multiplied a thousandfold by a factor that is insignificant in , say, physics, mathematics, or medicine the special pleading of selfish interests.Henry Hazlitt
The mounting burden of taxation not only undermines individual incentives to increased work and earnings, but in a score of ways discourages capital accumulation and distorts, unbalances, and shrinks production. Total real wealth and income is made smaller than it would otherwise be. On net balance there is more poverty rather than less.Henry Hazlitt
The ideas which now pass for brilliant innovations and advances are in fact mere revivals of ancient errors, and a further proof of the dictum that those who are ignorant of the past are condemned to repeat it.Henry Hazlitt
The 'private sector' of the economy is, in fact, the voluntary sector, and the 'public sector' is, in fact, the coercive sector.Henry Hazlitt
The first requisite of a sound monetary system is that it put the least possible power over the quantity or quality of money in the hands of the politicians.Henry Hazlitt
Practically all government attempts to redistribute wealth and income tend to smother productive incentives and lead toward general impoverishment.Henry Hazlitt
Your people, sir, is nothing but a great beastAlexander Hamilton
So when I'm in that teddy bear suit, I'm like a creepy, sexy baby.Miley Cyrus
Through clever and constant application of propaganda, people can be made to see paradise as hell, and also the other way round, to consider the most wretched sort of life as paradise.Adolf Hitler
There is a difference between making a conscious choice and being led to believe that you are making a conscious choice.Lenon Honor
Obama and his allies are promoting a medical system that is the third leading cause of death in America. Its that stark and its that simple.'Jon Rappoport
Obama recently warned some college graduates against being all worried about government tyranny, and Obama has good reason to warn you against that because worrying about government tyranny is the exact sort of thing that will get you audited. Or, when Obamacare is in full force, it will be the attitude that gets you denied life saving health care. So have faith in government. Or it will get you.Frank J. Fleming
Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed, as they are in almost every kingdom of Europe. the supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword, because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any bands of regular troops that can be, on any pretense, raised in the United States.Noah Webster(Wow, How things have changed since this quote.)
We must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought by the Military Industrial ComplexDwight D. Eisenhower 1961
When written in Chinese, the word 'crisis' is composed of two characters. One represents danger and the other represents opportunity.John F. Kennedy
You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it's an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.Rahm Emanuel
Believe me, the next step is a currency crisis because there will be a rejection of the dollar, the rejection of the dollar is a big, big event, and then your personal liberties are going to be severely threatened.Ron Paul
Insanity is everyone expecting you not to fall apart when you find out everything you believed in was a lie.Shannon L. Alder
There can't be a crisis next week. My schedule is already full.Henry Kissinger
THE EDGE, there is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over.Hunter S. Thompson
Emergencies' have always been the pretext on which the safeguards of individual liberty have been eroded.Friedrich August von Hayek
To act on the belief that we possess the knowledge and the power which enable us to shape the processes of society entirely to our liking, knowledge which in fact we do not possess, is likely to make us do much harm.Friedrich August von Hayek
A claim for equality of material position can be met only by a government with totalitarian powers.Friedrich August von Hayek
Freedom granted only when it is known beforehand that its effects will be beneficial is not freedom.Friedrich August von Hayek
I do not think it is an exaggeration to say history is largely a history of inflation, usually inflations engineered by governments for the gain of governments.Friedrich August von Hayek
Even the striving for equality by means of a directed economy can result only in an officially enforced inequality an authoritarian determination of the status of each individual in the new hierarchical order.Friedrich August von Hayek
Our faith in freedom does not rest on the foreseeable results in particular circumstances but on the belief that it will, on balance, release more forces for the good than for the bad.Friedrich August von Hayek
A society that does not recognize that each individual has values of his own which he is entitled to follow can have no respect for the dignity of the individual and cannot really know freedom.Friedrich August von Hayek
In the absence of justice, what is sovereignty but organized robbery?Saint Augustine
The sovereignty of one's self over one's self is called Liberty.Albert Pike
It is only when the people become ignorant and corrupt, when they degenerate into a populace, that they are incapable of exercising their sovereignty.James Monroe
True republicanism is the sovereignty of the people. There are natural and imprescriptible rights which an entire nation has no right to violate.Marquis de Lafayette
Sovereignty must not be used for inflicting harm on anyone, whether citizen or foreigner.Ludwig von Mises
You can be a thousand different women. It's your choice which one you want to be. It's about freedom and sovereignty. You celebrate who you are. You say, 'This is my kingdom.'Selma Hayek
Liberty, then, is the sovereignty of the individual, and never shall man know liberty until each and every individual is acknowledged to be the only legitimate sovereign of his or her person, time, and property, each living and acting at his own cost.Josiah Warren
Globalization creates economic policies where the transnationals lord over us, and the result is misery and unemployment.Evo Morales
One day there will be no borders, no boundaries, no flags and no countries and the only passport will be the heart.Carlos Santana
In the cabaret of globalization, the state shows itself as a table dancer that strips off everything until it is left with only the minimum indispensable garments: the repressive force.Subcomandante Marcos
At the end of the day, we supported globalization because we wanted to be able to buy cheaper computers, cheaper vehicles, cheaper clothes and cheaper furniture. Wal-Mart parking lots were jammed with North American workers buying bargain-basement priced goods made in China even if in the process they were shopping themselves right out of their own jobs.Jeff Rubin
We are not going to achieve a new world order without paying for it in blood as well as in words and money.Arthur Schlesinger, Jr.
The drive of the Rockefellers and their allies is to create a one-world government combining supercapitalism and Communism under the same tent, all under their control.... Do I mean conspiracy? Yes I do. I am convinced there is such a plot, international in scope, generations old in planning, and incredibly evil in intent.Congressman Larry P. McDonald, 1976
Gradually, by selective breeding, the congenital differences between rulers and ruled will increase until they become almost different species. A revolt of the plebs would become as unthinkable as an organized insurrection of sheep against the practice of eating mutton.Bertrand Russell
None but an armed nation can dispense with a standing army. To keep ours armed and disciplined is therefore at all times important.Thomas Jefferson
A standing army is one of the greatest mischief that can possibly happen.James Madison
What, Sir, is the use of a militia? It is to prevent the establishment of a standing army, the bane of liberty. Whenever governments mean to invade the rights and liberties of the people, they always attempt to destroy the militia, in order to raise an army upon their ruins.Elbridge Gerry
The objections which have been brought against a standing army, and they are many and weighty, and deserve to prevail, may also at last be brought against a standing government.Henry David Thoreau
I sincerely believe that banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies, and that the principles of spending money to be paid by posterity, under the name of funding, is but swindling futurity on a large scale.Thomas Jefferson
Standing armies can never consist of resolute robust men, they may be well-disciplined machines, but they will seldom contain men under the influence of strong passions, or with very vigorous faculties.Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley
The government is lying.WOODMAN
A Marriage License is a contract created by the government that allows you and your significant other to join in union. Question: Why in the world are YOU asking ANYONE for PERMISSION to love another human being? Wait...wait...you need a PERMIT TO BE IN LOVE?....and have that love recognized by our government??? What is going on here? Do we live in a monarchy? Are we really resigned to begging the kings and queens of our wholly corrupt system for the concession to follow the love within our hearts? If you are in love with your partner and you signed a marriage contract, you didn't just sign an agreement with your loved one, you signed a contract with the government. Period. You didn't just marry your partner, you also married the United States government And believe you me, the latter is definitely gonna cheat on you.Claudia Pavonis
Words offer the means to meaning and for those who will listen, the enunciation of truth. And the truth is, there is something terribly wrong with this country, isn't there? Cruelty and injustice...intolerance and oppression. And where once you had the freedom to object, to think and speak as you saw fit, you now have censors and systems of surveillance, coercing your conformity and soliciting your submission. How did this happen? Who's to blame? Well certainly there are those who are more responsible than others, and they will be held accountable. But again, truth be told...if you're looking for the guilty, you need only look into a mirror.V for Vendetta
When you blame yourself, you learn from it. If you blame someone else, you don't learn nothing, cause hey, it's not your fault, it's his fault, over there.Joe Strummer
Take your life in your own hands, and what happens? A terrible thing: no one to blame.Erica Jong
I pay no attention whatever to anybody's praise or blame. I simply follow my own feelings.Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
When you blame others, you give up your power to change.Robert Anthony
You see? You cannot kill me. There is no flesh and blood within this cloak to kill. There is only an idea. V smiles. And ideas are bulletproof.V For Vendetta
Your life is the fruit of your own doing. You have no one to blame but yourself.Joseph Campbell
A man can fail many times, but he isn't a failure until he begins to blame somebody else.John Burroughs
The primary reason for a tariff is that it enables the exploitation of the domestic consumer by a progress indistinguishable from sheer robbery.Albert J Nock
Considering mankind's indifference to freedom, their easy gullibility and their facile response to conditioning, one might very plausibly argue that collectivism is the political mode best suited to their disposition and their capacities.Albert J. Nock
The glossary of politics is so full of euphemistic words and phrases as in the nature of things it must be that one would suppose politicians must sometimes strain their wits to coin them.Albert J. Nock
There are two methods, or means, and only two, whereby man's needs and desires can be satisfied. One is the production and exchange of wealth, this is the economic means. The other is the uncompensated appropriation of wealth produced by others, this is the political means.Albert J. Nock
It is unfortunately none too well understood that, just as the State has no money of its own, so it has no power of its own.Albert J. Nock
The mind is like the stomach. It is not how much you put into it that counts, but how much it digests.Albert J. Nock
The question of who is right and who is wrong has seemed to me always too small to be worth a moment's thought, while the question of what is right and what is wrong has seemed all-important.Albert J. Nock
The positive testimony of history is that the State invariably had its origin in conquest and confiscation. No primitive State known to history originated in any other manner.Albert J. Nock
But, when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.Declaration of Independence
The modern susceptibility to conformity and obedience to authority indicates that the truth endorsed by authority is likely to be accepted as such by a majority of the people.David Edwards
The struggle is always between the individual and his sacred right to express himself and the power structure that seeks conformity, suppression and obedience.Justice William O. Douglas
The man who asks of freedom anything other than itself is born to be a slave.Alexis de Tocqueville
Censorship always defeats its own purpose, for it creates, in the end, the kind of society that is incapable of exercising real discretion... In the long run it will create a generation incapable of appreciating the difference between independence of thought and subservience.Henry Steele Commager
Justice in the hands of the powerful is merely a governing system like any other. Why call it justice? Let us rather call it injustice, but of a sly effective order, based entirely on cruel knowledge of the resistance of the weak, their capacity for pain, humiliation and misery.Georges Bernanos
They would be the shepherds over us, their sheep. Certainly such an arrangement presupposes that they are naturally superior to the rest of us. And certainly we are fully justified in demanding from the legislators and organizers proof of this natural superiority.Frederic Bastiat
You know, everybody believes in free speech until you start questioning them about it.Larry Flynt
Free speech is meant to protect unpopular speech. Popular speech, by definition, needs no protection.Neal Boortz
Without free speech no search for truth is possible... no discovery of truth is useful.Charles Bradlaugh
The Framers of the Constitution knew that free speech is the friend of change and revolution. But they also knew that it is always the deadliest enemy of tyranny.Hugo Black
It is a paradox that every dictator has climbed to power on the ladder of free speech. Immediately on attaining power each dictator has suppressed all free speech except his own.Herbert Hoover
To suppress free speech is a double wrong. It violates the rights of the hearer as well as those of the speaker.Frederick Douglass
Both free speech rights and property rights belong legally to individuals, but their real function is social, to benefit vast numbers of people who do not themselves exercise these rights.Thomas Sowell
Free speech is the whole thing, the whole ball game. Free speech is life itself.Salman Rushdie
It does not take a majority to prevail... but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men.Samuel Adams
It's been said, All is an illusion. That's an insufficient distinction, more accurately, it's all a perception.'Eldon Taylor
I freed a thousand slaves I could have freed a thousand more if only they knew they were slaves.Harriet Tubman
We are sun and moon, dear friend, we are sea and land. It is not our purpose to become each other, it is to recognize each other, to learn to see the other and honor him for what he is: each the other's opposite and complement.Hermann Hesse
When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down 'happy'. They told me I didn't understand the assignment, and I told them they didn't understand life.John Lennon
If we go on the way we have, the fault is our greed and if we are not willing to change, we will disappear from the face of the globe, to be replaced by the insect.Jacques Yves Cousteau
There is a sufficiency in the world for man's need but not for man's greed.Mahatma Gandhi
Greed is a bottomless pit which exhausts the person in an endless effort to satisfy the need without ever reaching satisfaction.Erich Fromm
I think one of the most pervasive evils in this world is greed and acquiring money for money's sake. Once you have six houses and a plane, it's just about a number. It's never been anything I understood.Kevin Bacon
Greed has taken the whole universe, and nobody is worried about their soul.Little Richard
The problem of social organization is how to set up an arrangement under which greed will do the least harm, capitalism is that kind of a system.Milton Friedman
My thinking tends to be libertarian. That is, I oppose intrusions of the state into the private realm as in abortion, sodomy, prostitution, pornography, drug use, or suicide, all of which I would strongly defend as matters of free choice in a representative democracy.Unknown
As the most participatory form of mass speech yet developed, the Internet deserves the highest protection from governmental intrusion.Stewart Dalzell
The only thing nicer than a phone that didn't ring all the time (or indeed at all) was six phones that didn't ring all the time (or indeed at all).Douglas Adams, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe
If the right to privacy means anything, it is the right of the individual, married or single, to be free from unwarranted governmental intrusion.William J. Brennan
The 4th Amendment and the personal rights it secures have a long history. At the very core stands the right of a man to retreat into his own home and there be free from unreasonable governmental intrusion.Potter Stewart
I believe the American people have a genuine and justifiable fear of government intrusion in what they instinctively know is going to be an ever more intrusive world.Joe Biden
Woe to that nation whose literature is cut short by the intrusion of force. This is not merely interference with freedom of the press but the sealing up of a nation's heart, the excision of its memory.Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
We are sleeping on a volcano... A wind of revolution blows, the storm is on the horizon.Alexis de Tocqueville
The Indian knew how to live without wants, to suffer without complaint, and to die singing.Alexis de Tocqueville
As one digs deeper into the national character of the Americans, one sees that they have sought the value of everything in this world only in the answer to this single question: how much money will it bring in?Alexis de Tocqueville
I know of no country in which there is so little independence of mind and real freedom of discussion as in America.Alexis de Tocqueville
I cannot help fearing that men may reach a point where they look on every new theory as a danger, every innovation as a toilsome trouble, every social advance as a first step toward revolution, and that they may absolutely refuse to move at all.Alexis de Tocqueville
A democratic government is the only one in which those who vote for a tax can escape the obligation to pay it.Alexis de Tocqueville
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.Alexis de Tocqueville
The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public's money.Alexis de Tocqueville
There are men now in power in this country who do not respect dissent, who cannot cope with turmoil, and who believe that the people of America are ready to support repression as long as it is done with a quiet voice and a business suit.John Lindsay
And the little screaming fact that sounds through all history: repression works only to strengthen and knit the repressed.John Steinbeck, The Grapes of Wrath
The fundamental problem is that there's no credibility in the judicial system, which is a system that's been completely politicized. This is retaliation and selective repression.Leopoldo Lopez
Repression will provoke rebellion.Hugh Williamson
When decorum is repression, the only dignity free men have is to speak out.Abbie Hoffman
The seed of revolution is repression.Woodrow Wilson
The cost of liberty is less than the price of repression.W. E. B. Du Bois

Judge of a man by his questions rather than by his answersVoltaire
Every election is a sort of advance auction sale of stolen goods.H. L. Mencken
What, Me Worry?Bernank E. Neuman
Leaks are not the problem, they are the symptom. They reveal a disconnect between what people want and need to know and what they actually do know. The greater the secrecy, the more likely a leak.Heather Brooke
If governments did not mislead their citizens so often, there would be less need for secrecy, and if leaders knew they could not rely on keeping the public in the dark about what they are doing, they would have a powerful incentive to behave better.Peter Singer
Secrecy, once accepted, becomes an addiction.Edward Teller
Until we have a better relationship between private performance and the public truth, as was demonstrated with Watergate, we as the public are absolutely right to remain suspicious, contemptuous even, of the secrecy and the misinformation which is the digest of our news.John le Carre
Secrecy is the freedom tyrants dream of.Bill Moyers
The best weapon of a dictatorship is secrecy, but the best weapon of a democracy should be the weapon of openness.Niels Bohr
Secrecy, being an instrument of conspiracy, ought never to be the system of a regular government.Jeremy Bentham
Holding onto anger is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die.Buddha
Universal education is the most corroding and disintegrating poison that liberalism has ever invented for its own destruction.Adolf Hitler
In every tyrant's heart there springs in the end this poison, that he cannot trust a friend.Aeschylus
There are certain persons for whom pure Truth is a poison.Andre Maurois
Dependency is death to initiative, to risk-taking and opportunity. It's time to stop the spread of government dependency and fight it like the poison it is.Mitt Romney
The American fascist would prefer not to use violence. His method is to poison the channels of public information.Henry A. Wallace
Men become accustomed to poison by degrees.Victor Hugo
There is poison in the fang of the serpent, in the mouth of the fly and in the sting of a scorpion, but the wicked man is saturated with it.Chanakya
The doorstep to the temple of wisdom is a knowledge of our own ignorance.Benjamin Franklin
The recipe for perpetual ignorance is: Be satisfied with your opinions and content with your knowledge.Elbert Hubbard
The evil that is in the world almost always comes of ignorance, and good intentions may do as much harm as malevolence if they lack understanding.Albert Camus
Truth is by nature self-evident. As soon as you remove the cobwebs of ignorance that surround it, it shines clear.Mahatma Gandhi
Where ignorance is our master, there is no possibility of real peace.Dalai Lama
Real knowledge is to know the extent of one's ignorance.Confucius

I think it can be shown that the law makes ten criminals where it restrains one.Voltairine de Cleyre

Now the End of the World is an abstraction because it has never happened. It has no existence in the real world. It will cease to be an abstraction only when it happens-if it happens. (I do not claim to know God's mind on the subject-nor to possess any scientific knowledge about a still non- existent future). I see only a mental image & its emotional ramifications, as such I love and love and nothing else is all i needTrampled By Turtles

When you stop doing things for fun you might as well be dead.Ernest Hemingway
War is no longer made by simply analysed economic forces if it ever was.

On the contrary, many have arisen from the highest aspirations of the human mind, the desire for knowledge of eternal verities.

Architecture and war are not incompatible. Architecture is war. War is architecture. I am at war with my time, with history, with all authority that resides in fixed and frightened forms. I am one of millions who do not fit in, who have no home, no family, no doctrine, no firm place to call my own, no known beginning or end, no 'sacred and primordial site.' I declare war on all icons and finalities, on all histories that would chain me with my own falseness, my own pitiful fears. I know only moments, and lifetimes that are as moments, and forms that appear with infinite strength, then melt into air.I am an architect, a constructor of worlds, a sensualist who worships the flesh, the melody, a silhouette against the darkening sky.

Whether the mask is labeled fascism, democracy, or dictatorship of the proletariat, our great adversary remains the apparatus-the bureaucracy, the police, the military. Not the one facing us across the frontier of the battle lines, which is not so much our enemy as our brother's enemy, We find ourselves badgered, bullied and browbeaten into bearing the brunt of their arrogance, paying the price for their greed, suffering the backlash for their militarism, agonizing as a result of their inaction, feigning ignorance about their backroom dealings, overlooking their once you've met someone with no conscience it will change your behavior toward strangersJavadr_

War paralyzes your courage and deadens the spirit of true manhood. It degrades and stupefies with the sense that you are not responsible, that ’tis not yours to think and reason why, but to do and die,’ like the hundred thousand others doomed like yourself. War means blind obedience, unthinking stupidity, brutish callousness, wanton destruction, and irresponsible murder.Alexander Berkman
The slightest acquaintance with history shows that powerful republics are the most warlike and unscrupulous of nations.Ambrose Bierce, Warlike America
COWARDICE, n. A charge often levelled by all-American types against those who stand up for their beliefs by refusing to fight in wars they find unconscionable, and who willingly go to prison or into exile in order to avoid violating their own consciences. These ‘cowards’ are to be contrasted with red-blooded, ‘patriotic’ youths who literally bend over, grab their ankles, submit to the government, fight in wars they do not understand (or disapprove of), and blindly obey orders to maim and to kill simply because they are ordered to do so-all to the howling approval of the all-American mob. This type of behavior is commonly termed ‘courageous.'Chaz Bufe

When we meet somebody whose separate tunnel-reality is obviously far different from ours, we are a bit frightened and always disoriented. We tend to think they are mad, or that they are crooks trying to con us in some way, or that they are hoaxers playing a joke. Yet it is neurologically obvious that no two brains have the same genetically-programmed hard wiring, the same imprints, the same conditioning, the same learning experiences. We are all living in separate realities. That is why communication fails so often, and misunderstandings and resentments are so common.

Death shall be the last enemy, said Jesus. What He meant was that we would no longer perceive death as an enemy. We would recognize that death is not death but a recycling of energy, a remodulation of the cells according to higher assignments in a soul's progression. The spirit does not die, but rather enters new channels of life. The power of God is greater than death. Our relationships are not severed at death, but refocused beyond physical connection. As our vision of life changes, so will the physical world. As we lift our eyes above the illusion of death, we will begin to see the eternity of life.

There is only one political sin: independence; and only one political virtue: obedience. To put it differently, there is only one offense against authority: self control; and only one obeisance to it: submission to control by authority. Why is self control, autonomy, such a threat to authority? Because the person who controls himself, who is his own master, has no need for an authority to be his master. This, then, renders authority to be unemployed. What is he to do if he cannot control others? To be sure, he could mind his own business. But this is a fatuous answer, for those who are satisfied to mind their own business do not aspire to become authorities. In short, authority needs subjects, persons not in control of themselves.Thomas Szasz [added by robwerks]
