Liberty Quotes

"No one understood better than Stalin that the true object of propaganda is neither to convince nor even to persuade, but to produce a uniform pattern of public utterance in which the first trace of unorthodox thought immediately reveals itself as a jarring dissonance."-- Alan Bullock [Alan Louis Charles Bullock, Baron Bullock] (1914-2004) British historian Source: Hitler and Stalin: Parallel Lives

"Only a large-scale popular movement toward decentralization and self-help can arrest the present tendency toward statism... A really efficient totalitarian state would be one in which the all-powerful executive of political bosses and their army of managers control a population of slaves who do not have to be coerced, because they love their servitude. To make them love it is the task assigned, in present-day totalitarian states, to ministries of propaganda, newspaper editors and schoolteachers."-- Aldous Huxley (1894-1963) Author Source: Forward to 'Brave New World', 1932

"Neither current events nor history show that the majority rule, or ever did rule." -- Jefferson Davis (1808-1889) President of the Confederate States of America (1861-1865)
