Tom Clancy | What the government is good at is collecting taxes

"What the government is good at is collecting taxes, taking away your freedoms and killing people. It's not good at much else."

Kevin Sorbo | what the governments of disarmed citizens have done

"If you think mass shooters have killed too many people, just wait till you find out what the governments of disarmed citizens have done."

Karl Kraus | How is the world ruled and led to war?

"How is the world ruled and led to war? Diplomats lie to journalists and believe these lies when they see them in print."

Karl Kraus

George Orwell | horrible features of war

"One of the most horrible features of war is that all the war-propaganda, all the screaming and lies and hatred, comes invariably from people who are not fighting."

George Orwell

Winston Churchill | bodyguard of lies

"In wartime, truth is so precious that she should always be attended by a bodyguard of lies."

Winston S. Churchill

George Orwell | The most effective way to destroy people

"The most effective way to destroy people is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history."

"What we learn from History is that no one learns from History."

J.F.C. Fuller | into the invisible hands of a plutocracy

"The government of the Western nations, whether monarchical or republican, had passed into the invisible hands of a plutocracy, international in power and grasp. It was, I venture to suggest, this semioccult power which....pushed the mass of the American people into the cauldron of World War I."

J.F.C. Fuller

Winston Churchill | the Russian people by the hair

"[Bolshevism] among the Jews is nothing new. From the days of Spartacus-Weishaupt to those of Karl Marx, and down to Trotsky (Russia), Bela Kun (Hungary), Rosa Luxembourg (Germany), and Emma Goldman (United States)... this worldwide conspiracy for the overthrow of civilisation and for the reconstitution of society on the basis of arrested development, of envious malevolence, and impossible equality, has been steadily growing. It has been the mainspring of every subversive movement during the 19th century; and now at last this band of extraordinary personalities from the underworld of the great cities of Europe and America have gripped the Russian people by the hair of their heads and have become practically the undisputed masters of that enormous empire."

Winston Churchill

John F. Kennedy | Mankind must put an end to war

"Mankind must put an end to war before war puts an end to mankind."

Stephen C. Perkins | psychological warfare, economic and political transformation

"The cavalier expression of such sentiments, the resurrection of a dormant specter from the crypt of America’s “cold war” with the former Soviet Union, is meant purely to foster the viral spread of collective apprehension in the fragile heart of the population which, over the centuries, has proved to be the Jesuit order’s most effective tool in the execution of psychological warfare, economic and political transformation (AKA order out of chaos), and social behavioral modification. Turns out, the looming threat of annihilation at the hands of “nuclear weapons” or viral infection due to the Covid-19 “pandemic” are both hoaxes."

Stephen C. Perkins

Hans Hermann Hoppe | the greatest threat to human security

"The recently ended twentieth century was characterized by a level of human rights violations unparalleled in all of human history. In his book Death by Government, Rudolph Rummel estimates some 170 million government-caused deaths in the twentieth century. The historical evidence appears to indicate that, rather than protecting life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness of their citizens, governments must be considered the greatest threat to human security."

Prof. Hans Hermann Hoppe

Erich Maria Remarque | I always thought everyone was against war

"I always thought everyone was against war until I found out there are those who are all for it, especially those who do not have to go there."

Erich Maria Remarque

Albert Einstein | That a man can take pleasure

„That a man can take pleasure in marching in formation to the strains of a band is enough to make me despise him. He has only been given his big brain by mistake; a backbone was all he needed. This plague-spot of civilization ought to be abolished with all possible speed. Heroism by order, senseless violence, and all the pestilent nonsense that does by the name of patriotism--how I hate them! War seems to me a mean, contemptible thing: I would rather be hacked in pieces than take part in such an abominable business. And yet so high, in spite of everything, is my opinion of the human race that I believe this bogey would have disappeared long ago, had the sound sense of the nations not been systematically corrupted by commercial and political interests acting through the schools and the Press.“

Albert Einstein

Sergej Lawrow | „Master of the house“ of NATO and EU sits in Washington

"Both Nato and the European Union have resigned themselves to the fact that their ‘master of the house’ is in Washington and in Washington they have decided that the world must now be monopolar, they talk about that all the time."

Sergej Lawrow

Gore Vidal | We are the United States of Amnesia

"We are the United States of Amnesia, we learn nothing because we remember nothing."

Gore Vidal

Stefan Zweig | The tales of gouged-out eyes

"The tales of gouged-out eyes and severed hands which appear on the third or fourth day of every war filled the newspapers. They did not know, those innocents who spread such lies, that the accusation of every possible cruelty against the enemy is as much war materiel as are munitions and planes, and that they are systematically taken out of storage at the beginning of every war. War does not permit itself to be coordinated with reason and righteousness. [...] Shakespeare was banned from the German stage, Mozart and Wagner from the French and English concert halls, German professors declared that Dante had been Germanic, the French that Beethoven had been a Belgian, intellectual culture was requisitioned without scruple from the enemy countries like grain and ore. [...] After a few weeks, determined to escape this dangerous mass psychosis, I moved to a rural suburb to commence my personal war in the midst of war, the struggle against the betrayal of Reason by the current mass passion."

Stefan Zweig

Michael Jackson | Sadly, sadly, we live in a state of fear

“Sadly, sadly, we live in a state of fear. Everyday we hear of war on the news, on the radio and television and the newspapers, always of war. We hear of nations hurting each other, of neighbours hurting each other, of families hurting each other and the children killing each other. We must learn to live and love each other before its too late. We have to stop! We have to stop the prejudice, we have to stop the hating, we have to stop living in fear of our own neighbours. [...] Together … together we can make a change of the world. Together we can help to stop racism. Together we can help to stop prejudice. We can help the world live without fear. Its our only hope, without hope we are lost.”

Michael Jackson

Henry A. Wallace | the bulk of the common people everywhere do not want a third world war

"...My brother-in-law, Charles Bruggmann, told me about some friends who were in Dublin, Ireland, recently. At a social gathering were present several Jesuit priests who indicated that one of their supreme purposes was to bring about a war between the United States and Russia. Later on I began to speculate about the forces that are interested in trying to bring about such a war. In addition to a small group in the Catholic hierarchy there is also a small group among the English Tories and a small group in the American Army... a small group among the American big-business hierarchy, a substantial group among the Chinese Nationalists, the London Poles, and in general the more wealthy people who live in the countries close to Russia. Also there is a small group in the Navy (note for example Admiral Stark’s68 statement in the Pearl Harbor hearings with regard to communism being a greater danger than Naziism);..."

"The greatest of all crimes are the wars that are carried on by governments, to plunder, enslave, and destroy mankind."

Anatoliy Golitsyn | Believers think ideology is dying or already dead

"Believers think ideology is dying or already dead and that Gorbachev has abandoned the class struggle and taken the 'capitalist road'. They do not realise that 'perestroika' is an expression of ideological strategy and a practical means of reviving ideology. It is not the abandonment of class struggle but a finesse to secure the defeat of the capitalist democracies by the use of capitalist weapons. The class struggle will yet have its bloody feasts. The Western elite believe they are helping the cause of democracy. In fact they are financing their own demise and digging their own graves. The tragedy is that they will probably not see it until it is too late."

Paul Valéry | War: a massacre of people who don’t know

„War: a massacre of people who don't know each other for the profit of people who know each other but don't massacre each other.“

Julian Assange | when asked “Who do you think is the number-one enemy?”

„Our number-one enemy is ignorance. And I believe that is the number-one enemy of everyone. It’s not understanding what is actually going on in the world. It’s only once you start to understand that you can make effective decisions and effective plans. Now the question is: who is promoting this ignorance? […] It is bad media. It really is my opinion that the media in general are so bad we have to question whether the world wouldn’t be better off without them all together. They’re so distortive to how the world actually is that the result is we see wars and we see corrupt governments continue on. One of the hopeful things that I have discovered is that nearly every war that has started in the past 50 years has been a result of media lies. The media could have stopped it if they had searched deep enough — if they hadn’t reprinted government propaganda — they could have stopped it. But what does that mean? Well, that means, basically, populations don’t like wars. Populations have to be fooled into wars. Populations don’t willingly, with open eyes, enter into war. So, if we have a good media environment, we might also have a peaceful environment.“

Julian Assange
