What is right is not always popular and what is popular is not always right. – Albert Einstein

 

Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters. - Benjamin Franklin

 

In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot. – Mark Twain

 

The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. – Thomas Jefferson

 

What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul. – Mark 8:36 NIV

Colleges used to teach how to think, now they teach what to think. -Anon

 

I bet they all identify as "liberal" democrats. So open-minded that their brains fell out. - Anon

 

The difference between patriotism and nationalism is that the patriot is proud of his country for what it does, and the nationalist is proud of his country no matter what it does; the first attitude creates a feeling of responsibility, but the second a feeling of blind arrogance that leads to war. – Mark Twain

 

The...vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the... virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries. –  Winston Churchill

 

Civilized nations, however, do not use their armies and fleets to open one another’s ports to trade.  What they use their armies and fleets for, is, when they quarrel, to close one another’s ports. . . . Trade does not require force.  Free trade consists simply in letting people buy and sell as they want to buy and sell. It is protection that requires force, for it consists in preventing people from doing what they want to do. Protective tariffs are as much applications of force as are blockading squadrons, and their object is the same—to prevent trade. The difference between the two is that blockading squadrons are a means whereby nations seek to prevent their enemies from trading; protective tariffs are a means whereby nations attempt to prevent their own people from trading. What protection teaches us is to do to ourselves in time of peace what enemies seek to do to us in time of war. - Henry George

You know, sometimes all you need is twenty seconds of insane courage. Just literally twenty seconds of just embarrassing bravery. And I promise you, something great will come of it. – Benjamin Mee

 

Why is 'The Young Turks' named after an early 1900's Turkish revolutionary group that perpetrated the Armenian genocide in which 1.5 million people were systematically exterminated?....and why is this Armenian Ana Kasparian co-hosting the show? That's like a Jew co-hosting a show called 'The Young Nazis. -Anon

The truth is belligerent; it strikes out not only against falsehood, but against particular people who spread falsehood. – Bertolt Brecht

 

THESE are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem to lightly: it is dearness only that gives everything its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should not be highly rated.   - Thomas Paine

 

I do not believe in the creed professed by the Jewish church, by the Roman church, by the Greek church, by the Turkish church, by the Protestant church, nor by any church that I know of. My own mind is my own church. All national institutions of churches, whether Jewish, Christian or Turkish, appear to me no other than human inventions, set up to terrify and enslave mankind, and monopolize power and profit. – Thomas Paine

 

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing. – Edmund Burke

 

When it comes to money everybody is of the same religion. – Voltaire

 

Naturally, the common people don't want war; neither in Russia nor in England nor in America, 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. Oh, that is all well and good, but, 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 Goering

 

You either learn your way towards writing your own script in life, or you unwittingly become an actor in someone else's script. – John Taylor Gatto

 

As long as the government is perceived as working for the benefit of the children, the people will happily endure almost any curtailment of liberty and almost any deprivation. – Adolf Hitler

 

Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. – 2 Corinthians 11:14

 

An armed society is a polite society. Manners are good when one may have to back up his acts with his life. – Robert A. Heinlein

 

All our ideas of the justice and goodness of God revolt at the impious cruelty of the Bible. It is not God, just and good, but a devil, under the name of God, that the Bible describes. The Old Testament is so full of contradictions and wickedness and could not be the Word of God and …we dishonor God by ascribing it to him. – Thomas Paine

 

Many people, especially ignorant people, want to punish you for speaking the truth, for being correct, for being you. Never apologize for being correct, or for being years ahead of your time. If you’re right and you know it, speak your mind. Speak your mind. Even if you are a minority of one, the truth is still the truth. - Gandhi

 

And having been asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God is coming, He answered them and said, "The kingdom of God does not come with careful observation” Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you. – Luke 17:20

 

A government big enough to give you everything you want is a government big enough to take from you everything you have. – Thomas Jefferson

 

If it is immoral to do something to someone on an individual on individual level, then it is also immoral to do on a group on group level (or group on individual). – Anon

 

How many does it take to metamorphose wickedness into righteousness? One man must not kill. If he does it is murder. Two, ten, one hundred men, acting on their own responsibility, must not kill. If they do, it is still murder. But a state or nation may kill as many as they please, and it is no murder. It is just, necessary, commendable, and right. Only get people enough to agree to it, and the butchery of myriads of human beings is perfectly innocent. But how many does it take? This is the question. Just so with theft, robbery, burglary, and all other crimes… But a whole nation can commit it… But how many does it take? Why must one, ten, one hundred men not violate God’s law, while very many may? – Adin Ballou

 

Let me issue and control a nation's money, and I care not who writes its laws. – Nathan Rothschild

If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks…will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered…. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs. . . . – Attributed to Thomas Jefferson

Paper is poverty. It is the ghost of money and not money itself. – Thomas Jefferson

 

If ever again our nation stumbles upon unfunded paper, it shall surely be like death to our body politic. This country will crash. – George Washington

 

There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. – 1 John 4:18

 

The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift. - Albert Einstein

Many a true word is spoken in jest. – Geoffrey Chaucer

 

Condemnation without investigation is the height of ignorance. – Aristotle

 

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. – H. Jackson Brown Jr.

 

When some men fail to accomplish what they desire to do they exclaim angrily, “May the whole world perish!” This repulsive emotion is the pinnacle of envy, whose implication is “If I cannot have something, no one can have anything, no one is to be anything! – Frederic Nietzsche

 

Disobedience is the true foundation of liberty. The obedient must be slaves. – Henry David Thoreau

 

We may be genuinely puzzled as to how people could obey commands that seem both bloodthirsty and stupid. Puzzlement can vanish when we realize that in the eyes of their perpetrators the hideous crimes of history and not hideous crimes at all, but acts of loyalty, patriotism, and duty. From the vantage point of the present we can see them as hideous crimes, but ordinarily from that same vantage point we cannot see the crimes of our own governments as hideous or even as crimes. – Don Mixon

 

There are more things likely to frighten us than there are to crush us; we suffer more in our imagination than in reality. – Seneca

 

People fear what they don't understand and hate what they can't conquer. – Andrew Smith

In the eyes of many zoologists, humour is a human replacement for the violence which animals use on each other to establish an order of dominance (the pecking order) - Anon

 

If your slate is already dirty, don't despair; it is often a reversible process and if you are patient by ceasing to do anything wrong it should slowly improve. – Marc Segar

Science is not only compatible with spirituality; it is a profound source of spirituality.

 

No man is free, who is not master of himself – Epictetus

 

Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones. – Anon (originally attributed to Marcus Aurelius

 

Synchronicity is an ever present reality for those who have eyes to see. - Carl Jung

 

I sat in the room basically like a hermit, for years, why aren't you interacting with people, it’s called reading, its hard work. It means you are going to sacrifice time, you are going to take effort to care enough to transform and transform others. It is a work of willpower and care. – Mark Passio

 

Dark Occultists, by telling the masses, in any symbolism, gives them carpe blanche license to do whatever because of their refusal to say no is silent tacit approval. They look like it as if they are not personally responsible. They pretend they aren’t karmically responsible because they have an obscure symbol before punching you in the face. – Mark Passio

 

Dark occultists believe nature is a prison. They would rather rule in hell thatn serve in heaven. Dark occultists reject natural law and get order followers to do their bidding so they don’t suffer the karmic consequences. – Mark Passio

 

I have a right to speak and a right to stop you from stopping me from speaking. – Mark Passio

 

Each player must accept the cards life deals him or her: but once they are in hand, he or she alone must decide how to play the cards in order to win the game. – Voltaire

I am an anarchist! Wherefore I will not rule and also ruled I will not be. - John Henry Mackay

 

All is Love. Fear is Illusion. All beings are Free. Truth can never be destroyed. – Mark Passio

 

Even with anarcho-prefixes and red and black flags, socialism subjugates the individual, EVERY individual, to the authority of the masses, the headless, unaccountable bureaucracy and separates each individual from the masses, from society as a whole. Each individual must struggle then against the whole of society for freedom, for anarchy. What good is it to free society if each individual is not free from society? From economics? From the commune? From the federation? It is not anarchy if it is not free of bureaucracy, no matter how “directly democratic” it is purported to be. - Bobby Whittenberg-James

 

Dark Occultists will feed everyone to the beast as long as they are fed last. – Mark Passio

 

Courage is the willingness to act in spite of your fear. - Michael Hyatt

Propaganda works best when those who are being manipulated

The real hopeless victims of mental illness are to be found among those who appear to be most normal. "Many of them are normal because they are so well adjusted to our mode of existence, because their human voice has been silenced so early in their lives, that they do not even struggle or suffer or develop symptoms as the neurotic does." They are normal not in what may be called the absolute sense of the word; they are normal only in relation to a profoundly abnormal society. Their perfect adjustment to that abnormal society is a measure of their mental sickness. These millions of abnormally normal people, living without fuss in a society to which, if they were fully human beings, they ought not to be adjusted. - Aldous Huxley

 

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain. – Frank Herbert

Take a look at a generic historical example of the pattern of

tyranny. A rouge thug gathers together a band of men to extort

money from the people nearby where he lives. In his success, he

plunders massive amounts of money and grows his gang into an

army. He successfully kills the previous officers of law and

enforcement, or subverts them through stealth. Knowing that he

can plunder more value in the long term if he leaves his victims

alive, he implements a “tax” upon everyone in his range of

influence. He draws borders, he gives decrees. Importantly, he

promises his victims that he will protect them from all other

thugs. His victims slowly become accustomed to his will, and

his lies. The people become afraid if they hear their neighbors

talk of escaping the taxes and cruelty. Soon they actively support

the regime by targeting all 'treasonous' speech, and turning in

deviants to police. Originally called criminal, the thug is now

called authority. He is called law and order. – Jeremy Locke

 

 

Government is the only true monopoly. You cannot choose

whether or not to buy their “services”. Opting out is called

treason and tax evasion, and authority will come to your door

with guns. They will imprison or kill you.

Government is the only true monopoly, and their monopoly is

a monopoly of violence. These are the people that we are taught

to trust with authority over our goods and services. Demonizing

corporations as monopolistic follows the pattern of tyranny

precisely. Fabricate an enemy, and seize control. – Jeremy Locke

Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. – Martin Luther King Jr.

If you're going to try, go all the way. Otherwise, don't even start. This could mean losing girlfriends, wives, relatives and maybe even your mind. It could mean not eating for three or four days. It could mean freezing on a park bench. It could mean jail. It could mean derision. It could mean mockery--isolation. Isolation is the gift. All the others are a test of your endurance, of how much you really want to do it. And, you'll do it, despite rejection and the worst odds. And it will be better than anything else you can imagine. If you're going to try, go all the way. There is no other feeling like that. You will be alone with the gods, and the nights will flame with fire. You will ride life straight to perfect laughter. It's the only good fight there is. - Charles Bukowski

 

The darkest places in hell are reserved for those who maintain their neutrality in times of moral crisis. - Dante Alighieri

 

Every time a new law is created, a new crime is created. The main source of crime is government. High crime rate usually isn't from criminal population, but it is because of excessive legislation. - Max Igan

 

Governments don’t want a population capable of critical thinking, they want obedient workers, people just smart enough to run the machines and just dumb enough to passively accept their situation. You have no choice. You have owners. They own you. They own everything. They own all the important land. They own and control the corporations. They’ve long since bought, and paid for the Senate, the Congress, the state houses, the city halls, they got the judges in their back pockets and they own all the big media companies, so they control just about all of the news and information you get to hear. They got you by the balls. - George Carlin

Consider that you can see less than 1% of the electromagnetic spectrum and hear less than 1% of the acoustic spectrum. As you read this, you are traveling at 220 km/sec across the galaxy. 90% of the cells in your body carry their own microbial DNA and are not “you.” The atoms in your body are 99.9999999999999999% empty space and none of them are the ones you were born with, but they all originated in the belly of a star. Human beings have 46 chromosomes, 2 less than the common potato.

 

The existence of the rainbow depends on the conical photoreceptors in your eyes; to animals without cones, the rainbow does not exist. So you don’t just look at a rainbow, you create it.

What Orwell feared were those who would ban books. What Huxley feared was that there would be no reason to ban a book, for there would be no one who wanted to read one. Orwell feared those who would deprive us of information. Huxley feared those who would give us so much that we would be reduced to passivity and egoism. Orwell feared that the truth would be concealed from us. Huxley feared the truth would be drowned in a sea of irrelevance. Orwell feared we would become a captive culture. Huxley feared we would become a trivial culture, preoccupied with some equivalent of the feelies, the orgy porgy, and the centrifugal bumblepuppy. As Huxley remarked in Brave New World Revisited, the civil libertarians and rationalists who are ever on the alert to oppose tyranny "failed to take into account man's almost infinite appetite for distractions." In Nineteen Eighty-Four, people are controlled by inflicting pain. In Brave New World, they are controlled by inflicting pleasure. In short, Orwell feared that what we hate will ruin us. Huxley feared that what we desire will ruin us.

 

Enlighten the people generally, and tyranny and oppressions of body and mind will vanish like evil spirits at the dawn of day. -Thomas Jefferson

 

Imagine a family unit, a couple of children father mother, that actually cared about each other. Now extend that to billions of people. - Mark Passio

 

The penalty for disobeying authority is always death. All who

have stood in open rebellion against existing powers throughout

history were killed. Today, even in ‘free nations’ men are killed

for rebellion. If they cannot force you to obey with intimidation,

they use threat. If threat is not enough, they use kidnapping and

imprisonment. If that fails, you will be murdered. Which law

you break is irrelevant. Even such a little law as a speeding

ticket—fail to pull over, resist arrest, try to escape or fight back.

It happens regularly. The penalty is death. - Jeremey Locke

 

If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stomping on the human face, forever. – George Orwell

 

If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day. – E. B White

 

Sooner or later the people in this country are going to realize the government doesn't give a f*** about them. the government doesn't care about you, or your children, or your rights, or your welfare or your safety. it simply doesn't give a f*** about you. It's interested in it's own power. That's the only thing...keeping it, and expanding wherever possible. – George Carlin

 

The word 'cop' or 'copper' is slang for corrupt police, hence the meaning to 'cop a bribe'. Police are just henchmen for corrupt governments and their policies and are thus 'policy enforcers', (police). Police are not there to 'protect & serve' the public but only to 'enforce' government policy and protect them and their interests. -Anon

 

It is now highly feasible to take care of everybody on Earth at a higher standard of living than any have ever known. It no longer has to be you or me. Selfishness is unnecessary. War is obsolete. It is a matter of converting the high technology from weaponry to livingry. - Buckminster Fuller

The secret of freedom lies in educating people, whereas the secret of tyranny is in keeping them ignorant. – Maximillian Robespierre

 

Any law which violates the inalienable rights of man is essentially unjust and tyrannical; it is not a law at all. – Maximillian Robespierre

 

The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown. – H. P Lovecraft

 

The most absurd apology for authority and law is that they serve to diminish crime. Aside from the fact that the State is itself the greatest criminal, breaking every written and natural law, stealing in the form of taxes, killing in the form of war and capital punishment, it has come to an absolute standstill in coping with crime. It has failed utterly to destroy or even minimize the horrible scourge of its own creation. – Emma Goldman

 

As the State is a soulless machine, it can never be weaned from violence to which it owes its very existence. - Gandhi

 

The first casualty of War is Truth. – Aeschylus

 

The knowledge of how the mental and vital energy transform into what we want, and achieve control over all feelings. Hindus call it Kundalini Yoga. This knowledge can be learned, for what they need many years or is acquired by birth. The most of them I acquired by birth. They are in the closest connection with a sexual energy that is after the most widespread in the Universe. The woman is the biggest thief of that energy, and thus the spiritual power.

 

I have found that, to make a contented slave, it is necessary to make a thoughtless one.

It is necessary to darken his moral and mental vision, and, as far as possible, to

annihilate the power of reason. He must be able to detect no inconsistencies in slavery;

he must be made to feel that slavery is right; and he can be brought to that only when he

ceases to be a man. – Frederic Douglas

 

There are men in all ages who mean to govern

While the intended

actual message that all political action sends to those in power is “We wish you would

change your commands, but we will continue to obey whether you do or not.” – Larken Rose

 

Though few of those who wave their flags on “Independence Day” may

today. – Larken Rose

- Larken Rose

"Each time a person stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, these ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance." - Robert F. Kennedy

"Find out just what people will submit to, and you have found out the exact amount of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them; and these will continue until they are resisted with either words or blows, or both.

Miller


"Each man must for himself alone decide what is right and what is wrong, which course is patriotic and which isn't. You cannot shirk this and be a man.

"The real hopeless victims of mental illness are to be found among those who appear to be most normal. Many of them are normal because they are so well adjusted to our mode of existence, because their human voice has been silenced so early in their lives, that they do not even struggle or suffer or develop symptoms as the neurotic does. They are normal not in what may be called the absolute sense of the word; they are normal only in relation to a profoundly abnormal society. Their perfect adjustment to that abnormal society is a measure of their mental sickness. These millions of abnormally normal people, living without fuss in a society to which, if they were fully human beings, they ought not to be adjusted." - Aldous Huxley

"We have to create culture, don't watch TV, don't read magazines, don't even listen to NPR. Create your own roadshow. The nexus of space and time where you are now is the most immediate sector of your universe, and if you're worrying about Michael Jackson or Bill Clinton or somebody else, then you are disempowered, you're giving it all away to icons, icons which are maintained by an electronic media so that you want to dress like X or have lips like Y. This is shit-brained, this kind of thinking. That is all cultural diversion, and what is real is you and your friends and your associations, your highs, your orgasms, your hopes, your plans, your fears. And we are told 'no', we're unimportant, we're peripheral. 'Get a degree, get a job, get a this, get a that.' And then you're a player, you don't want to even play in that game. You want to reclaim your mind and get it out of the hands of the cultural engineers who want to turn you into a half-baked moron consuming all this trash that's being manufactured out of the bones of a dying world." 
- Terence McKenna

"Those who have the privilege to know, have the duty to act." - Albert Einstein

"Sometimes I go and visit the doctor and get myself checked out; because the doctor has to stay in business and stay alive.

Then I dump the medication to the drain because I too, have to stay in business and stay alive.” - Mark Twain

“They will hate you if you are beautiful. They will hate you if you are successful. They will hate you if you are right. They will hate you if you are popular. They will hate you when you get attention. They will hate you when people in their life like you. They will hate you if you worship a different version of their God. They will hate you if you are spiritual. They will hate you if you have courage. They will hate you if you have an opinion. They will hate you when people support you. They will hate you when they see you happy. Heck, they will hate you while they post prayers and religious quotes on Pinterest and Facebook. They just hate. However, remember this: They hate you because you represent something they feel they don’t have. It really isn’t about you. It is about the hatred they have for themselves. So smile today because there is something you are doing right that has a lot of people thinking about you.” - Shannon L. Alder

We may think our tribute is paid in secret in the dark recesses of our hearts, but it will out. That which dominates our imaginations and our thoughts will determine our lives, and our character. Therefore, it behooves us to be careful what we worship, for what we are worshipping we are becoming.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson

“The great majority of us are required to live a constant, systematic duplicity. Your health is bound to be affected by it if, day after day, you say the opposite of what you feel, you grovel before what you dislike and rejoice at what bring brings you nothing but misfortune. Our nervous system isn’t just a fiction, it’s part of our physical body, and our soul exists in space and is inside us, like teeth in our mouth. It can’t be forever violated with impunity.” - Boris Pasternak

“People who belittle people, will be little people, and will accomplish very Little.” - Norman Vincent Peale

“It's now very common to hear people say, 'I'm rather offended by that.' As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more than a whine. 'I find that offensive.' It has no meaning; it has no purpose; it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that.' Well, so what?” - Stephen Fry

“If we really saw war, what war does to young minds and bodies, it would be impossible to embrace the myth of war. If we had to stand over the mangled corpses of schoolchildren killed in Afghanistan and listen to the wails of their parents, we would not be able to repeat clichés we use to justify war. This is why war is carefully sanitized. This is why we are given war's perverse and dark thrill but are spared from seeing war's consequences. The mythic visions of war keep it heroic and entertaining. The wounded, the crippled, and the dead are, in this great charade, swiftly carted offstage. They are war's refuse. We do not see them. We do not hear them. They are doomed, like wandering spirits, to float around the edges of our consciousness, ignored, even reviled. The message they tell is too painful for us to hear. We prefer to celebrate ourselves and our nation by imbibing the myths of glory, honor, patriotism, and heroism, words that in combat become empty and meaningless.” - Chris Hedges

"What is morally wrong can never be advantageous, even when it enables you to make some gain that you believe to be to your advantage. The mere act of believing that some wrongful course of action constitutes an advantage is pernicious.” - Marcus Tullius Cicero

"The more I see, the less I know for sure.” - John Lennon

I do believe that where there is only a choice between cowardice and violence I would advise violence... I would rather have India resort to arms in order to defend her honor than that she should in a cowardly manner become or remain a helpless witness to her own dishonor. But I believe that nonviolence is infinitely superior to violence, forgiveness is more manly than punishment, forgiveness adorns a soldier. But abstinence is forgiveness only when there is the power to punish, it is meaningless when it pretends to proceed from a helpless creature. A mouse hardly forgives a cat when it allows itself to be torn to pieces by her.

"Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will." -Gandhi

"Nonviolence in its dynamic condition means conscious suffering. It does not means meek submission to the will of the evil-doer, but it means the putting of one's whole soul against the will of the tyrant. Working under this law of being , it is possible for a single individual to defy the whole might of an unjust empire to save his honor, his religion, his soul and lay the foundation for the empire's fall or its regeneration." -Gandhi

"It is too true, however disgraceful it may be to human nature, that nations in general will make war whenever they have a prospect of getting anything by it; nay, absolute monarchs will often make war when their nations are to get nothing by it, but for the purposes and objects merely personal, such as thirst for military glory, revenge for personal affronts, ambition, or private compacts to aggrandize or support their particular families or partisans. These and a variety of other motives, which affect only the mind of the sovereign, often lead him to engage in wars not sanctified by justice or the voice and interests of his people." -John Jay

"If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State
can shield the people from the political, economic and/or
military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally
important for the State to use all of its powers to
repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the
lie, and thus by extension the truth becomes the greatest
enemy of the State." -Joesph Goebells

“The tyrant dies and his rule is over, the martyr dies and his rule begins.” -The tyrant dies and his rule is over, the martyr dies and his rule begins." -Kierkegaard

Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are inevitably ruined. –Patrick Henry

"If you added together all the forms of taxation that we pay in a year and subtracted that from your income, you would be shocked at how much of the energy you receive for your energy given goes back to the system in taxation alone. Ultimately, this money/ energy ends up in the Rothschild 'lake' and this is what, despite the ever-increasing taxation, we get an ever-decreasing quality of services which this money is supposed to be paying for. Add to all this the interest paid to the banks for 'borrowing' non-existent money called 'credit' and you can see that humanity is being energetically and systematically sucked dry. Something else is being sucked dry also - choice and potential. How often are people denied what they want to do or where they want to go by the mantra of 'I can't afford it' or 'I don't have the money'? Our money is part of our energy field, part of 'us', because that ‘ownership’ makes a vibrational connection between our energy field and that of the money. Giving and receiving money is energy in, energy out. Look at all of the above and you can see that the masses are being manipulated to give out far more energy than they are getting back. Even after the original exchange has taken place in the form of salary or profit, most of what we receive is then consumed by taxation, interest on money and artificially-inflated costs for essential services. The economic system, headed by the House of Rothschild, has been created to vampire the life-force of the global population. The public see money, but the Rothschilds see everything as energy, which, of course, it is. We call money, currency, but it should be currcent-cy. This is how the Rothschilds use it, as like an electrical current which they circulate and then get back at a much greater voltage, or 'plus interest'." -David Icke

"Not the wrath of the Almighty, but the stupidity of man, is causing most of the trouble." -Manly P. Hall

"...You've seen through the whole weird cultist apparatus attached to the government and then to see somebody come along and say it would be dangerous if these people had less power or if we weren't ruled over be these people that would be really dangerous. You know got to stop spreading dangerous ideas or one day we might not ruled by these people anymore. And you hear somebody say that and you think, wow, I feel sorry for you, you're like a mental slave.  You're like in a prison of some kind. Your mind is in a prison! Dangerous..." -Tom Woods

“If you wish to keep slaves, you must have all kinds of guards. The cheapest way to have guards is to have the slaves pay taxes to finance their own guards. To fool the slaves, you tell them that they are not slaves and that they have freedom. You tell them that they need law and order to protect them against bad slaves. Then you tell them to elect a government. Give them freedom to vote and they will vote for their own guards and pay their salary. They will then believe they are free persons. Then give them money to earn, count, and spend, and they will be too busy to notice the slavery they are in.” — Alexander Warbucks

“If the individual, overwhelmed by the sense of his own puniness and impotence, should feel that his life has lost its meaning…then he is already on the road to State slavery and, without knowing or wanting it, has become its proselyte.” -Carl Jung

“The law is guilty of the evils it is supposed to punish.” -Frédéric Bastiat

 “A standing military force, with an overgrown Executive will not long be safe companions to liberty. The means of defence against foreign danger, have been always the instruments of tyranny at home. Among the Romans it was a standing maxim to excite a war, whenever a revolt was apprehended. Throughout all Europe, the armies kept up under the pretext of defending, have enslaved the people.” -James Madison

“The graveyard is the richest place on earth, because it is here that you will find all the hopes and dreams that were never fulfilled, the books that were never written, the songs that were never sung, the inventions that were never shared, the cures that were never discovered, all because someone was too afraid to take that first step, keep with the problem, or determined to carry our their dream.” - Les Brown 

"There is only one way to avoid criticism: Do nothing, say nothing, and be nothing." -Aristotle

"A free society cannot be the substitution of a ‘new order’ for the old order; it is the extension of spheres of free action until they make up most of social life." -Paul Goodman 

"Good works are done in the day, evil is done in the shadow of darkness." - Mark Passio

"An idle minds is the devils playground." -English Proverb

"Society tames the wolf into a dog. And man is the most domesticated animal of all." Frederic Basitat

"There is 1 chance in 140 trillion that the Earth should exist. There is 1 chance in 795 billion that life should have evolved on earth. There is 1 chance in 89 billion that life should have evolved into mankind. There is 1 chance in 12 billion that mankind should have created the alphabet and thus civilization. There is 1 chance in 6 billion that your parents should ever have met and got together. There is 1 chance in 90 million that you should have been the lucky sperm that fertilized your mother’s egg." -Ben Carey

"The very word "secrecy" is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and to secret proceedings.

For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies primarily on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence--on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations." -JFK

"Name one thing that has made the world better on the ground where you live since any current crop of politicians took office trump included, scomo included, Theresa may, macron name one way your world is improved due to the actions of the people. You may see stuff in the newspaper, but I'm talking about people your life on the ground how has it been make easier since these people came to office, nothings changes, and nothing will change until we choose to change." -Max Igan

"Governments are based principally on force and deception. Democratic governments are based chiefly on deception, other governments on force. And democratic governments, if you get too uppity, give up on the deception and resort to brute force, as a lot of us found out in the sixites. Those who didn't find out in the sixites will find out in the near future because we're going to have a rerun." Robert Anton Wilson

"Intelligence is the capacity to receive, decode and transmit information efficiently. Stupidity is blockage of this process at any point. Bigotry, ideologies etc. block the ability to receive; robotic reality-tunnels block the ability to decode or integrate new signals; censorship blocks transmission." Robert Anton Wilson

"Money, after all, is an abstract artifact, like language - merely symbolized by the paper or coin or whatever. If you can fully grasp its abstractedness, especially in the computer age, it becomes quite clear that no group can monopolize this abstraction, except through a series of swindle. If the usurers had been bolder, they might have monopolized language as well as currency, and people would be saying we can't write more books because we don't have enough words, the way they now say we can't build starships, because we don't have enough money."

"The fear of death is the beginning of slavery." Robert Anton Wilson

"Most animals, including most domesticated primates (humans) show truly staggering ability to 'ignore' certain kinds of information - that which does not 'fit' their imprinted/ conditioned reality-tunnel." -Robert Anton Wilson

"Are traditional schools very much like mini-prisons? Do they stifle imagination, cramp the child physically and mentally, and run on various forms of overt or covert terrorism? Of course, the answer is an unambiguous YES." Robert Anton Wilson.

"I like pacifists and people who have a heavy emotional identification with deathism and war would probably call me a pacifist, but I am a non-invasivist rather than a non-violentist. That is, I believe that an invaded people have the right to defend themselves by any means necessary. This includes putting ground glass or poison in the invaders' food, shooting at them from ambush, sabotage, the general strike, armed revolution, etc. It's up to the invaded to decide which of these techniques they will use. It's not up to some moralist to tell them which techniques are permissible." Robert Anton Wilson

"Taking somebody's money without permission is stealing, unless you work for the IRS; then it's taxation. Killing people en masse is homicidal mania, unless you work for the Army; then it's National Defense. Spying on your neighbors is invasion of privacy, unless you work for the FBI; then it's National Security. Running a whorehouse makes you a pimp and poisoning people makes you a murderer, unless you work for the CIA; then it's counter-intelligence." Robert Anton Wilson

"The ultimate weapon isn't this plague out in Vegas, or any new super H-bomb. The ultimate weapon has always existed. Every man, every woman, and every child owns it. It's the ability to say No and take the consequences." - Robert Anton Wilson

"Belief is the death of intelligence." -RAW

"Groups are grammatical fictions; only individuals exist, and each individual is different." -RAW

"There is no governor anywhere. You are all absolutely free. There is no restraint that cannot be escaped. If anybody could go into dhyana at will, nobody could be controlled - by fear of prison, by fear of whips or electroshock, by fear of death, even. All existing society is based on keeping those fears alive, to control the masses. Ten people who know would be more dangerous than a million armed anarchists." -RAW

"If It's Natural to Kill, How Come Men Have to Go into Training to Learn How." -Joan Baez

"Freedom is the sure possession of those alone who have the courage to defend it." -Pericles

"Resolve to serve no more, and you are at once freed. I do not ask that you place hands upon the tyrant to topple him over, but simply that you support him no longer; then you will behold him, like a great Colossus whose pedestal has been pulled away, fall of his own weight and break into pieces." -Etienne de La Boetie

"To know and not to do is not yet to know." Buddhist proverb

"The most unequal societies that there are in the world are the societies where the government is trying to take care of everyone and promises to make everybody equal and when they do they just bring everybody except for the politicians (down) , the politicians get to live in the big mansions, ride around in limosinesm, they still have country clubs while everyone else is starving." -Mike Maloney speaking about Venezuela

"People never ask What are conservatives preserving and what are progressives progressing towards? Is it good?" -Me

“The best way to take control over a people and control them utterly is to take a little of their freedom at a time, to erode rights by a thousand tiny and almost imperceptible reductions. In this way, the people will not see those rights and freedoms being removed until past the point at which these changes cannot be reversed.” - Pat Miller

"All matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration, that we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively, there is no such thing as death, life is only a dream, and we are the imagination of ourselves.” – Bill Hicks

"At the center of the universe dwells the Great Spirit. And that center is really everywhere. It is within each of us." -Black Elk

"Education should aim at destroying free will so that after pupils are thus schooled they will be incapable throughout the rest of their lives of thinking or acting otherwise than as their school masters would have wished. When the technique has been perfected, every government that has been in charge of education for more than one generation will be able to control its subjects securely without the need of armies or policemen." John Taylor Gatto

“Every lie uttered into existence makes the world a little darker, a little closer to proverbial HELL, while every truth spoken brings our world a little closer to the light, to heaven.”  -Jordan Peterson 

"I have a dream. that one day everybody would get along well in the whole world. That their would be no wars. I think that this would diffently be the most important change the world could probably have a huge impact. I think this change can be started by everyone treating everyone by being nice, not fighting verbally and physiscal, and also treating everyone equally." -Me (Gage Vogt) in 5th grade as written

"This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness." - Dalai Lama
