From Joseph Goebbels

"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 is the greatest enemy of the State."

From Samuel Eliot Morison

If the American Revolution had produced nothing but the Declaration of Independence, it would have been worth while. . . . The beauty and cogency of the preamble, reaching back to remotest antiquity and forward to an indefinite future, have lifted the hearts of millions of men and will continue to do so. . . . These words are more revolutionary than anything written by Robespierre, Marx, or Lenin, more explosive than the atom, a continual challenge to ourselves as well as an inspiration to the oppressed of all the world.

More From Clarence B. Carson

A "United States" was only possible if men could agree to disagree about a great many things. What was expedient for them is, however, an essential of liberty. Theoretically, it might be desirable for all men to agree on everything, though I doubt it. Practically, such agreement would only be possible if all individual wills were crushed and subjected to a single will. The effort to do this is always in the direction of the well traveled road to despotism. The alternatives are agreement to disagree or despotism.

From Will Durant

Every vice was once a virtue, and may become respectable again, just as hatred becomes respectable in wartime.

From Clarence B. Carson

Government regulation restricts, confines, diverts, focuses, makes inflexible, and alters the course of mens actions in hundreds of ways.

From Albert Jay Nock

The human race has an indefeasible love for what is graceful, amiable and becoming, and is somehow aware that those qualities can flourish only under freedom.

From Frederick Douglass

No man can put a chain about the ankle of his fellow man without at last finding the other end fastened about his own neck.

I expect that vast segments of the United States population will soon be losing any and all thoughts of " being a free people " as every aspect of unrestrained governmental tyranny is about to greet them full flush in the 2017 face!!

From John Lennon

You gotta remember, establishment, it is just a name for evil. The monster does not care whether it kills all the students or whether there is a revolution. It is not thinking logically, it is out of control. The trouble with government as it is, is that it does not represent the people, It Controls Them.

More From George Orwell

The further a society drifts from the truth, the more it will hate those that speak it.

More From Leonard E. Read

When integrity is the rule, fallacies and errors are brought honestly into the open, where they can be seen and discarded.
