Manly P. Hall | when the state governs, he is ruled by fear.

"When the mob governs, man is ruled by ignorance; when the church governs, he is ruled by superstition; and when the state governs, he is ruled by fear. Before men can live together in harmony and understanding, ignorance must be transmuted into wisdom, superstition into an illuminated faith, and fear into love."

Manly P. Hall

David McGowan | The Moon Landing is essentially the adult version of Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy.

"[The Moon Landing] is essentially the adult version of Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy. What primarily motivates them is fear. But it is not the lie itself that scares people; it is what that lie says about the world around us and how it really functions. For if NASA was able to pull off such an outrageous hoax before the entire world, and then keep that lie in place for four decades, what does that say about the control of the information we receive? What does that say about the media, and the scientific community, and the educational community, and all the other institutions we depend on to tell us the truth? What does that say about the very nature of the world we live in?"

Prof. Wolfgang Berger | I acquired all my academic titles by believing in a false doctrine

"I acquired all my academic titles by believing in a false doctrine. A studied economist understands less about macroeconomics than a cow does about flying, because he first has to dig himself out of a swamp of preconceived opinions and errors in thinking in order to even reach the surface, or to get back to where he was before he let himself be committed to the stupification asylum."

George Orwell | Political language is designed to make lies sound truthful

"Political language is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind."

Winston Churchil | The person must be blind

"The person must be blind, indeed, who can not see, that here on earth a great project, a great plan, is executed, may work on the realization of which we participate as faithful servants."
