More From Ernest Hemingway

You can wipe out your opponents. But if you do it unjustly you become
eligible for being wiped out yourself.

They wrote in the old days that it is sweet and fitting to die for your
country. But in modern war, there is nothing sweet nor fitting in your
dying. You will die like a dog for absolutely No Good Reason.

From Jacobo Timerman

We believed ourselves indestructable. We watched only the madmen outside
our frontiers, and we remained defenseless against our own madmen.

From Arthur Schopenhauer

All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it
is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.

From Noam Chomsky

Everybody is worried about stopping terrorism. Well, there is a really
easy way: Stop Participating In It.

From Aldous Huxley

What is absurd and monstrous about war is that men who have no personal
quarrel should be trained to murder one another in cold blood.

From General Stonewall Jackson

It is painful enough to discover with what unconcern they speak of war
and threaten it. I have seen enough of it to make me look upon it as the
Sum Of All Evils.

From Vassilis Epaminondou

If you kill one person you are a murderer. If you kill ten people you are
a monster. If you kill Ten Thousand People You are a National Hero.

From Thomas Paine

If there must be trouble, let it be in my day, that my child may have peace.

From Justin Raimondo

The real fanatics are the Israel-firsters, who have used every subterfuge,
no matter how low, to maintain their parasitic grip on the American policy
making process. The really dangerous ideologues are the Likudniks and their
American Amen corner who willfully distort and deform American policy into
a means to empower and succor a militaristic settler colony that is
increasingly anti-democratic and aggressive. The Freeman affair has exposed
the Israel lobby for precisely what they are: it has flushed them out of
the woodwork, and brought them in from the shadows. That in itself is a
great victory, one that means much more in the longterm than anyone
presently imagines.

From Nikki Giovanni

We can not be on the stock exchange because; We Are, The Stock Exchanged.

From William Lloyd Garrison

The Apathy of the American People is enough to make Every Statue Leap
From its Pedestal and Hasten the Resurrection of the Dead.

From Heinrich Himmler; Reichsfuhrer - SS

Germans who wish to use firearms should join the SS or the SA; ordinary
citizens do not need guns, as their having guns does not serve the State.

From Bruce D. Porter

Instead of liberty, the favorite watchword, has become, liberation. Under
this banner march the tyrannies of our time, from Soviet Russia with its
wars of national liberation to the kaleidoscope of coercive political
programs in America which invoke the mirage of liberation. The twentieth
century has been a Century of Liberation - of a War on Freedom fought
in the Name of Freedom.

The irony of the present American course is that in the name of freedom
from restraints, every source of independent power and morality is being
undermined; in the name of freedom from work, want, and scarcity, the
Constitutional Framework of Liberty is being dismantled, attacked, and
perverted past recognition. Beyond the irony stands the very real tragedy
that in the name of Freedom we are being led inexorably Toward Oppression
and led Toward Slavery.

More From Thomas Jefferson

A Coward is much more exposed to quarrels than a Man of Spirit.
