G. K. Chesterton

We shall soon be in a world in which a man may be howled down for saying that two and two make four, in which people will persecute the heresy of calling a triangle a three-sided figure, and hang a man for maddening a mob with the news that grass is green.

Another great quote by Chesterton

"The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of the Conservatives is to prevent the mistakes being corrected."

If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

From what we've seen a very significant percentage of the mobs are felons.

In fighting those who serve devils one always has this on one’s side; their Masters hate them as much as they hate us.

The moment we disable the human pawns enough to make them useless to Hell, their own Masters finish the work for us.

They break their tools.”

It's frightening to think that you might not know something, but more frightening to think that, by and large, the world is run by people who have faith that they know exactly what's going on. -- Amos Tversky
The most successful tyranny is not the one that uses force to assure uniformity but the one that removes the awareness of other possibilities.” —Allan Bloom

If falsehood, like truth, had only one face, we would be in better shape.

For we would take as certain the opposite of what the liar said.

But the reverse of truth has a hundred thousand shapes and a limitless field. 

- Montaigne

In the last analysis, we see only what we are ready to see, what we have been taught to see.

We eliminate and ignore everything that is not a part of our prejudices.

"In those wretched countries where a man cannot call his tongue his own, he can scarce call anything else his own. Whoever would overthrow the liberty of the nation, must begin by subduing the freedom of speech; a thing terrible to publick (sic) traitors."

This puts my struggle to "love my neighbor as myself" into an interesting context  :laugh:

“Individually, I love you all with affection unspeakable, but, collectively, I look upon you with a disgust that amounts to absolute detestation!”
