Words To Fear


"Is there No Such Thing as a dangerous Idea? I say YES, there is, but should we fear the ideas themselves?, NO! We should fear, rather, their incomplete dissemination!" 

"So this is how liberty dies... 
with thunderous applause."
Fahrenheit 451
"Its no good Montag, we've all 

got to be alike, the only way to 
be happy is for everyone to be 
made equal, so, we must burn 
the books Montag, 
all of the books."


Adolf Hitler

"He who controls the Youth, controls the future."
"The best thing is to let Christianity die a natural death...."

"Our epoch Uin the next 200 yearse will certainly see the end of the disease of Christianity.... My regret will have been that I couldn't..."

A hitler youth chant "We are the joyous Hitler youth, We do not need any Christian virtue"

Al Gore

“today the evidence of an ecological Kristallnacht is as clear as the sound of glass shattering in Berlin.”

Al Gore repeatedly refers to the unfolding “ecological holocaust”

"We took names, we watched how they voted, we know where they live." -WBEZ Radio, Feb 20 2007

"We're trying to use the power of persuasion and if that doesn't work we're going to use the persuasion of power. Because there are governments and there are opportunities to change laws that affect these companies. I'm not naive. We're ready to strike."

Andrew Jackson (1832)

"One man with courage makes a majority."


Alexander Hamilton

"A nation which can prefer disgrace to danger is prepared for a master, and deserves one!"

"A national debt, if it is not excessive, will be to us a national blessing."

"A well adjusted person is one who makes the same mistake twice without getting nervous."

"Even to observe neutrality you must have a strong government."

"In framing a government which is to be administered by men over men the great difficulty lies in this: You must first enable the government to control the governed, and in the next place, oblige it to control itself." 

"In the general course of human nature, A power over a man's subsistence amounts to a power over his will." 

"Man is a reasoning rather than a reasonable animal."

"Men often oppose a thing merely because they have had no agency in planning it, or because it may have been planned by those whom they dislike." 

"The sacred rights of mankind are not to be rummaged for among old parchments or musty records. They are written, as with a sunbeam, in the whole volume of human nature, by the hand of the divinity itself; and can never be erased."

"Constitutions should consist only of general provisions; the reason is that they must necessarily be permanent, and that they cannot calculate for the possible change of things."

Barrack Hussein  Obama aka Berry Sotoro

"I fear that reparations would be an excuse for some to say, 'We've paid our debt,' and to avoid the much harder work." -NAACP Questionaire 2004

 "Uh, when social security uh, was passed, it applied to, to widows and orphans aand it was a very restricted program, and over time that structure, that was built, ended up developing into the most important social safety net that we have in our country, uh th-the same is true on every piece of progressive legislation, every bit of progress that we've made, When the civil rights act passed, there was still a bunch of folks down south who couldn't vote aand, you know I'm sure there were a bunch of commentators out there who said 'you know what this law is, not doin the job' the-there're still folks who aren't able to exercise their franchise, but the point was, is that we have created the structure we have put a framework in place, that allowed us then to continue to make progress, that's what we have done over the last 18 months, that's what I expect we're going to keep on doin as long as I've got the-the pass-capacity to do it as long as I'm president of the united states." -Obama admits his HC"R" is only the frame work [as was Glenn Beck's Argument All Along] in an interview with Jon Stewart Interview

Cass Sunstein

Conspiracy Theories: Causes and Cures
Cass Sunstein and Adrian Vermeule - 2010

"What can the government do about conspiracy theories, and what should it do? 
(1) Government might ban "conspiracy theories", somehow defined. 
(2) Government might impose some kind of tax, financial or otherwise, on those who disseminate such theories. 
(3) Government might itself engage in counterspeech, marshaling arguments to discredit conspiracy theories. 
(4) Government might formally hire credible private parties to engage in counterspeech. 
(5) Government might engage in informal communication with such parties, encouraging them to help. Each instrument has a distinctive set of potential effects, or costs and benefits, and each will have a place under imaginable conditions.  

Our main policy claim here is that government should engage in cognitive infiltration of the groups that produce conspiracy theories, which involves a mix of (3), (4), and (5)."

Media Matters claims full quote exonerates Cass and Adrian(in bold) when it only further damns them while OBVIOUSLY leaving a giant loop hole with the phrase "Our main policy claim here" duh, (They also claim Glenn Beck "Cropped" the quote, he read it in full on the radio where he has 3 hours not 1)

From The First Page of "Nudge" 

"There's a little Homer Simpson in all of us. Sometimes we have self-control problems, sometimes we're impulsive and that in these circumstances, both private and public institutions, without coercing, can make our lives a lot better. Once we know that people are human and have some Homer Simpson in them, then there's a lot that can be done to manipulate them."
Sunstein's Wife asked (when they were dating) what his dream job would be... (The OIRA is the Office Of Information And Regulatory Affairs)

"I expected him to say he dreamed of playing for the Red Sox... his eyes got real big and he said: OOH! OIRA!" -NYT may 11

 Che Guevara

"The blacks, those magnificent examples of the African race who have conserved their racial purity by a lack of affinity with washing, have seen their patch invaded by a different kind of slave: The Portugese.... the black is indolent and fanciful, he spends his money on frivolity and drink; the European comes from a tradition of working and saving which follows him to this corner of America and drives him to get ahead."

“The Negro is indolent and spends his money on frivolities and booze, whereas the European is forward-looking, organized and intelligent.”

"The negro has maintained his racial purity by his well known habit of avoiding baths"

"What will our Revolution would do for blacks?--why, we'll do for blacks exactly what blacks did for the Cuban revolution. By which I mean: nothing!"

"Mexicans are a rabble of illiterate Indians."

"Youth must refrain from ungrateful questioning of governmental mandates. Instead they must dedicate themselves to study, work and military service. The very spirit of rebellion is reprehensible."

"My nostrils dilate while savoring the acrid odor of gunpowder and blood...Crazy
with fury I will stain my rifle red while slaughtering any surrendered enemy
that falls in my hands! With the deaths of my enemies I prepare my being for the
sacred fight and join the triumphant proletariat with a bestial howl!"

"Hatred as the central element of our struggle!...Hatred that is intransigent....Hatred so violent that it propels a human being beyond his natural limitations, making him violent and cold- blooded killing machine...We reject any peaceful approach. Violence is inevitable. To establish Socialism rivers of blood must flow!... The imperialist enemy must feel like a hunted animal wherever he moves. Thus we'll destroy him! These hyenas (Americans) are fit only for extermination. We must keep our hatred alive and fan it to paroxysm! The victory of Socialism is well worth millions of
atomic victims!"

"The solutions to the world's problems lie behind the Iron Curtain.....If the nuclear missiles had remained we would have fired them against the heart of the U.S. including New York City. The victory of socialism is well worth millions of atomic victims."

David Carr of the New York Times

"If it's Kansas, Missouri, no big deal. You know, that's the dance of the low-sloping foreheads. The middle places, right? [pause] Did I just say that aloud?"


David Foreman Co-Founder of "Earth First"

“Phasing out the human race will solve every problem on Earth, social and environmental”

"My three main goals would be to reduce human population to about 100 million worldwide, destroy the industrial infrastructure and see wilderness, with it’s full complement of species, returning throughout the world."

Solicitor General Elena Kagan

Private Speech, Public Purpose: The Role of Governmental Motive in First Amendment Doctrine - (PDF External Link)

"Finally, the notion of a skewing effect, as an explanation of R.A.V. or any other case, rests on a set of problematic founda- tions. The argument assumes that "distortion" of the realm of ideas arises from-and only from-direct governmental restric- tions on the content of speech. But distortion of public discourse might arise also (or instead) from the many rules of property and other law that, without focusing or intending to focus on any particular speech, determine who has access to expressive oppor- tunities.  
If there is an "overabundance" of an idea in the ab- sence of direct governmental action-which there well might be when compared with some ideal state of public debate-then action disfavoring that idea might "unskew," rather than skew, public discourse. 20 Suppose, for example, that racists control aficial suppression of ideas [was] afoot."24 And going beyond the structure of the law, the Court found that "comments and conces- sions" made by St. Paul in the case "elevate[d] the possibility to a certainty" that St. Paul was "seeking to handicap the expression of particular ideas" because of hostility toward them."

George Bernard Shaw 
[Fabian Socialist and Eugenicist]

"I don't want to punish anybody, but there are an extraordinary number of people whom I want to kill. I think it would be a good thing to make everybody come before a properly appointed board just as he might come before the income tax commissioners, and say every five years or every seven years, just put them there, and say, sir, or madam, now will you be kind enough to justify your existence. If your not producing as much as you consume or perhaps a little more then clearly, we cannot use the big organizaton of our society for the purpose of keeping you alive because your life does not benifit us and it can't be of very much use to yourself."


"[I] appeal to the chemists to discover a humane gas that will kill instantly and painlessly: in short, a gentlemanly gas- deadly by all means, but humane not cruel."


"we should do it while playing lovely classical music as we march them into the gass chambers"

Gabriel François, abbé Coyer

“Let it be so enjoy the moments which heaven in foreberance grant you drink deep the cup of inequity intoxicate yourself with the poison of destructive flaterers til the people discovering nothing respectible in the rich and nothing respectable in the great, insult molest and despoil them and their pocessions. Til all the orders of the state running headlong onto eachother under the weight of every vice break asunder the bands of laws and concord. Then such a period some civilized some less corrupted nation will decend sword in hand and impose the laws and manners upon the people.

Harry Truman, Democrat

I think one man is just as good as another so long as he’s not a nigger or a Chinaman. Uncle Will says that the Lord made a White man from dust, a nigger from mud, then He threw up what was left and it came down a Chinaman. He does hate Chinese and Japs. So do I. It is race prejudice, I guess. But I am strongly of the opinion Negroes ought to be in Africa, Yellow men in Asia and White men in Europe and America.

Jim Wallis 

"I think an affluent church in a world where half of God's children live on less than two dollars a day is an affront to the Gospel. The Bible doesn't mind prosperity as long as it is shared. But what the Bible doesn't like is these tremendous gaps and chasms between the top and the bottom."
After host Maureen Fiedler asked Wallis whether he was "calling for the redistribution of wealth in society,"
Wallis replied, "Absolutely. Without any hesitation. That's what the Gospel is all about."

John Dewey [blog]

[freedom is not] "something that individuals have as a ready-made possession." [It is] "something to be achieved." [In this view, freedom is not a gift of God or nature. It is a product of human making, a gift of the state. Man is a product of his own history, through which he collectively creates himself. He is a social construct. Since human beings are not naturally free, there can be no natural rights or natural law. Therefore,] "Natural rights and natural liberties exist only in the kingdom of mythological social zoology."
"Natural rights and natural liberties exist only in the kingdom of mythological social zoology. Men do not obey laws because they think these laws are in accord with a scheme of natural rights. They obey because they believe, rightly or wrongly, that the consequences of obeying are upon the whole better than the consequences of disobeying. If the consequences of existing rule become too intolerable, they revolt. An enlightened self-interest will induce a ruler not to push too far the patience of subjects. The enlightened self-interest of citizens will lead them to obtain by peaceful means, as far as possible, the changes that will effect a distribution of political power and the publicity that will lead political authorities to work for rather than against the interests of the people—a situation which Bentham thought was realized by government that is representative and based upon popular suffrage. But in any case, not natural rights but consequences in the lives of individuals are the criterion and measure of policy and judgment. "

 Mark Lloyd
In Venezuela, with Chavez, you really had an incredible revolution -- democratic revolution -- to begin to put in place things that were going to have impact on the people of Venezuela. The property owners and the folks who were then controlling the media in Venezuela rebelled -- worked, frankly, with folks here in the US government -- worked to oust him. He came back and had another revolution, and Chavez then started to take the media very seriously in his country. And we've had complaints about this ever since."

"As Newton Minow has observed, all too often Americans use the First Amendment to end discussions of communications policy. It should be clear by now that my focus here is not freedom of speech or the press. This freedom is all too often an exaggeration. Harold Innis may have been only slightly exaggerating when he wrote, "Freedom of the press ... has become the great bulwark of monopolies of the press." At the very least, blind references to freedom of speech or the press serve as a distraction from the critical examination of other communication policies.
Ithiel de Sola Pool's Technologies of Freedom is a good example of the idealization of freedom of speech in America. Although it is one of the best books on the history of communications, its premise, that technology frees while government policy constricts speech, is far too simple an understanding of either the First Amendment or democratic deliberation."







Maximilien Robespierre (French Revolutionary)

"Again, it may be said, that to love justice and equality the people need no great effort of virtue; it is sufficient that they love themselves."

(This is blatant Collecitivism)

"Any law which violates the inalienable rights of man is essentially unjust and tyrannical; it is not a law at all."

(Reading This Quotes; You must keep in mind the stark contrast between 'The Rights of Men' and 'The Rights of Man')

Terror is only justice: prompt, severe and inflexible; it is then an emanation of virtue; it is less a distinct principle than a natural consequence of the general principle of democracy, applied to the most pressing wants of the country.

"All credibility, all good conscience, all evidence of truth come only from the senses."

"Although the most acute judges of the witches and even the witches themselves, were convinced of the guilt of witchery, the guilt nevertheless was non-existent. It is thus with all guilt."

"And if you gaze for long into an abyss, the abyss gazes also into you."

“If I were re-incarnated, I would wish to return to earth as a killer virus to lower human population level.”


Robert Byrd

“I will never submit to fight beneath that banner with a Negro by my side. Rather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds." -[A statement made in Robert Byrd's 'youth'] Forgive, but do not forget. 

"I am a former kleagle of the Ku Klux Klan in Raleigh County and the adjoining counties of the state ….

Will you please inform me as to the possibilities of rebuilding the Klan in the Realm of W. Va …. I hope that you will find it convenient to answer my letter in regards to future possibilities."

Saul Alinsky

"Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to to the very first radial: from all our legends, mythology, and history (and who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins-- or which is which), the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom --Lucifer." --Saul Alinsky

"America is like a healthy body and its resistance is threefold: its patriotism, its morality, and its spiritual life. If we can undermine these three areas, America will collapse from within."


Steven Schneider: Stanford University Professor and Current [as of 2010] Lead Author of the UN's IPCC Report

A 1988 interview with Discover magazine.

"On the one hand, as scientists we are ethically bound to the scientific method, in effect promising to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but – which means that we must include all doubts, the caveats, the ifs, ands and buts. On the other hand, we are not just scientists but human beings as well. And like most people we’d like to see the world a better place, which in this context translates into our working to reduce the risk of potentially disastrous climate change. To do that we need to get some broad based support, to capture the public’s imagination. That, of course, means getting loads of media coverage. So we have to offer up scary scenarios, make simplified, dramatic statements, and make little mention of any doubts we might have. This “double ethical bind” we frequently find ourselves in cannot be solved by any formula. Each of us has to decide what the right balance is between being effective and being honest. I hope that means being both."
The full quote still shows an unethical adoption of scary language, to convince the public. This is rather similar to Bush's Campaign to sell Invading Iraq with the WMD evidence, leaving out everything else.

Father of Modern Journalism
Walter Lippmann
"News and truth are not the same thing..." -Public Opinion (1922)

"The common interests, very largely, elude public opinion entirely, and can be managed only by a specialized class whose personal interests reach beyond the locality." -Public Opinion (1922)

"When men can no longer be theists, they must, if they are civilized, become humanists."

"Unless the reformer can invent something which substitutes attractive virtues for attractive vices, he will fail."

"We are all captives of the picture in our head - our belief that the world we have experienced is the world that really exists."

"What we call a democratic society might be defined for certain purposes as one in which the majority is always prepared to put down a revolutionary minority."

"Brains, you know, are suspect in the Republican Party."

"Industry is a better horse to ride than genius."

"It is perfectly true that that government is best which governs least. It is equally true that that government is best which provides most."

"It requires wisdom to understand wisdom: the music is nothing if the audience is deaf."

"Most men, after a little freedom, have preferred authority with the consoling assurances and the economy of effort it brings."

"Only the consciousness of a purpose that is mightier than any man and worthy of all men can fortify and inspirit and compose the souls of men."

"Our conscience is not the vessel of eternal verities. It grows with our social life, and a new social condition means a radical change in conscience."

Walter Lippmann's is the Philosophy of Journalism Taught Today

"The hypothesis which seems to me the most fertile is that news and truth are not the same thing and must be clearly distinguished. The function of News is to signalize an event... The function of truth is to bring to light the hidden facts to set them into  relation with each other. And to make a picture of reality on which men can at. Only at those points... Where social conditions take recognizable and measurable shape. Do the body of truth and the body of news coincide. That is a comparatively small part of the whole field of human interest."

Van Jones (Former Green Jobs Czar)

East Bay Express Nov 2nd 2005

"I'm willing to forgo the cheap satisfaction of the radical pose for the deep satisfaction of radical ends"



"An ideal form of government is democracy tempered with assassination."

"I have lived eighty years of life and know nothing for it, but to be resigned and tell myself that flies are born to be eaten by spiders and man to be devoured by sorrow."

"I know many books which have bored their readers, but I know of none which has done real evil."
