Quotes for January 27, 2008

Thinking about everything going on today, smoking bans, food bans, healthism, bans on games of tag, treats in schools, war on terror, etc. We are fed daily doses of “news” on all these things. And we all know how the media influences us.

Joseph Goebbels, Nazi Propaganda Minister.

The most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly… it must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over.

People associate Hitler’s Nazi Germany with the holocost only. History shows us, proves, that Hitler did NOT start with killing Jews, this was the end road and the most horrific to be sure. He started with “health” issues, smoking bans, forced diet and exercise. And he did it for the benefit of the people, for a “healthy and fit” nation, for the children, and to reduce costs. AND he used the children also, just as many advocate groups do today. He also used “hotlines” for children and neighbors to report “law-breakers” just as the smoking bans do today.

So for all who say things will never go that far, when is the last time that doing the same thing produced a different result?


Gun Control anyone?

Noah Webster:

Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed as they are in almost every kingdom in Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops that can be, on any pretense, raised in the United States.


Now, consider who owns all the media. When’s the last time you heard ALL sides of an argument in the news?

Benjamin Franklin:

In those wretched countries where a man cannot call his tongue his own, he can scarce call anything his own. Whoever would overthrow the liberty of a nation must begin by subduing the freeness of speech.

Without freedom of thought there can be no such thing as wisdom; and no such thing as public liberty without freedom of speech.


Let me leave you with this thought:

Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety…..Benjamin Franklin
