"The trouble with fighting for human freedom is that one spends most of one's time defending scoundrels. For it is against scoundrels that oppressive laws are first aimed, and oppression must be stopped at the beginning if it is to be stopped at all."
-H. L. Mencken
"The stateor, to make the matter more concrete, the governmentconsists of a gang of men exactly like you and me. They have, taking one with another, no special talent for the business of government; they have only a talent for getting and holding office. Their principal device to that end is to search out groups who pant and pine for something they cant get, and to promise to give it to them. Nine times out of ten that promise is worth nothing. The tenth time it is made good by looting A to satisfy B. In other words, government is a broker in pillage, and every election is a sort of advance auction sale of stolen goods."
-H. L. Mencken
"Freedom of speech is a principal pillar of a free government; when this support is taken away, the constitution of a free society is dissolved, and tyranny is erected on its ruins. Republics and limited monarchies derive their strength and vigor from a popular examination into the action of the magistrates."
"Did you really think we want those laws observed?" said Dr. Ferris. "We want them to be broken. You'd better get it straight that it's not a bunch of boy scouts you're up against... We're after power and we mean it... There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What's there in that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced or objectively interpreted and you create a nation of law-breakers and then you cash in on guilt. Now that's the system, Mr. Reardon, that's the game, and once you understand it, you'll be much easier to deal with."
--Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged, 1957
"The issue is never the issue. The issue is the revolution."
--David Horowitz, quoting unnamed SDS leader.
"Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard."
- H. L. Mencken
"Oceania was at war with Eurasia and in alliance with Eastasia. In no public or private utterance was it ever admitted that the three powers had at any time been grouped along different lines. Actually, as Winston well knew, it was only four years since Oceania had been at war with Eastasia and in alliance with Eurasia. But that was merely a piece of furtive knowledge, which he happened to possess because his memory was not satisfactorily under control."
--George Orwell, 1984
Grey's Law: "Any sufficiently advanced incompetence is indistinguishable from malice."
"The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power. Not wealth or luxury or long life or happiness: only power, pure power. What pure power means you will understand presently. We are different from all 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...We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means, it is an end... The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power. Now do you begin to understand me?"
--O'Brien, in 1984, by George Orwell
"Whereas classical anti-Semitism is aimed at the Jewish people or the Jewish religion, new anti-Semitism is aimed at the Jewish state. Since this anti-Semitism can hide behind the veneer of legitimate criticism of Israel, it is more difficult to expose. Making the task even harder is that this hatred is advanced in the name of values most of us would consider unimpeachable, such as human rights.
"Nevertheless, we must be clear and outspoken in exposing the new anti-Semitism. I believe that we can apply a simple test I call it the 3D test to help us distinguish legitimate criticism of Israel from anti-Semitism.
"The first D is the test of demonization. When the Jewish state is being demonized; when Israels actions are blown out of all sensible proportion; when comparisons are made between Israelis and Nazis and between Palestinian refugee camps and Auschwitz this is anti- Semitism, not legitimate criticism of Israel.
"The second D is the test of double standards. When criticism of Israel is applied selectively; when Israel is singled out by the United Nations for human rights abuses while the behavior of known and major abusers, such as China, Iran, Cuba, and Syria, is ignored; when Israels Magen David Adom, alone among the worlds ambulance services, is denied admission to the International Red Cross this is anti-Semitism.
"The third D is the test of delegitimization: when Israels fundamental right to exist is denied alone among all peoples in the world this too is anti-Semitism."
--Natan Sharansky, "3D Test of Anti-Semitism: Demonization, Double Standards, Delegitimization"
"People on the No-Fly List should be subject to having their persons and property searched without probable cause or warrant.
"People on the No-Fly List should be subject to being compelled to testify against themselves.
"Congress shall be able to make 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, for people on the No-Fly list.
"In all criminal prosecutions of people on the No-Fly List, the accused shall enjoy no right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defence.
"Shall I go on?"
--Slings and Arrows / Hopalong Ginsberg; 12/7/15
