The greatest problem with stupid people isnt that they are stupid; its that they often become angry
with those whom arent. Problem with ignorant people isnt that they think they know it all; its that they
decidedly ignore anything that proves the contrary.
-The Archivist
The Bible is not my book, and Christianity is not my religion. I could never give assent to
the long, complicated statements of Christian dogma.
I will say then that I am not, nor ever have been in favor of bringing about in anyway the
social and political equality of the white and black races that I am not nor ever have been in favor
of making voters or jurors of negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with
white people; and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white
and black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social
and political equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must
be the position of superior and inferior, and I as much as any other man am in favor of having the
superior position assigned to the white race. I say upon this occasion I do not perceive that because
the white man is to have the superior position the negro should be denied everything.

Ancient legends are the bridges to the Truths of our past.
Generally, all human error is based either on peoples having no plan at all and not pursuing
a specific goalhere you find weakness of character, foolishness, contradiction, and inconsistency;
or on peoples pursuit of a subordinated purpose, treating it like the main purpose, as ambitious and
domineering people dohere there can be the appearance of wisdom; or finally upon their
overleaping all intermediate purposes and attempting thus to achieve the highest purposethis leads
to religious and political fanaticism, to that type of intolerance that is equally impossible to consider

"There will be in the next generation or so a pharmacological method of making people love
their servitude and producing dictatorship without tears so to speak. Producing a kind of painless
concentration camp for entire societies so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away
from them, but will rather enjoy it, because they will be distracted from any desire to rebel by
propaganda, or brainwashing, or by brainwashing enhanced by pharmacological methods. And this
seems to be the final revolution."

I am for doing good to the poor, but I differ in opinion of the means. I think the best way
of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it.
In my youth I travelled much, and I observed in different countries, that the more public provisions
were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And,
on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer.

Time is three eyes and eight elbows.
Dogen Zenji
The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the
masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen
mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our
countryAs civilization has become more complex, and as the need for invisible government has
been increasingly demonstrated, the technical means have been invented and developed by which
opinion may be regimentedIf you can influence the leaders, either with or without conscious
cooperation, you automatically influence the group which they swayTrotter and Le Bon
concluded that the group mind does not think in the strict sense of the word. In place of thoughts it
has impulses, habits and emotions. In making up its mind its first impulse is usually to follow the
example of a trusted leader. This is one of the most firmly established principles of mass psychology.
It matters not how much capital you may have, how fair the rates may be, how favorable the
conditions of service, if you havent behind you a sympathetic public opinion, you are bound to fail.
No serious sociologist any longer believes that the voices of the people expresses any divine or
specially wise and lofty idea. The voice of the people expresses the mind of the people, and that
mind is made up for it by the group leaders in whom it believes and by those persons who
understand the manipulation of public opinion. It is composed of inherited prejudices and symbols
and clichs and verbal formulas supplied to them by the leaders.
The media by which special pleaders transmit their messages to the public through
propaganda include all the means by which people to-day transmit their ideas to one another. There
is no means of human communication which may not also be a means of deliberate propaganda,
because propaganda is simply the establishing of reciprocal understanding between an individual and
a group. The American motion picture is the greatest unconscious carrier of propaganda in the
world today. It is a great distributor for ideas and opinions.
Edward Louis Bernays
When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men living together in society, they
create for themselves in the course of time a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that

All obstructions to the execution of the laws, all combinations and associations under
whatever plausible character with the real design to direct, control, counteract, or awe the regular
deliberation and action of the constituted authorities, are destructive of this fundamental principle
and of fatal tendency. They serve to organize faction; to give it an artificial and extraordinary force;
to put in the place of the delegated will of the nation the will of a party, often a small but artful and
enterprising minority of the community; and, according to the alternate triumphs of different parties,
to make the public administration the mirror of the ill concerted and incongruous projects of
faction, rather than the organ of consistent and wholesome plans digested by common councils and
modified by mutual interests. However combinations or associations of the above description may
now and then answer popular ends, they are likely, in the course of time and things, to become
potent engines by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the
power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the
very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion.
I have already intimated to you the danger of parties in the stateLet me nowwarn you in
the most solemn manner against the baneful effects of the spirit of party, generally. This spirit,
unfortunately, is inseparable from our nature, having its root in the strongest passions of the human
mind. The alternate domination of one faction over another, sharpened by the spirit of revenge
natural to party dissension, which in different ages and countries has perpetrated the most horrid
enormities, is itself a frightful despotism. Without looking forward to an extremity of this kind
(which nevertheless ought not to be entirely out of sight) the common and continual mischiefs of
the spirit of party are sufficient to make it the interest and the duty of a wise people to discourage
and restrain it. It serves always to distract the public councils and enfeeble the public administration.
It agitates the community with ill-founded jealousies and false alarms, kindles the animosity of one
part against another, and foments occasionally riot and insurrection. It opens the door to foreign
influence and corruption, which find a facilitated access to the government itself through the
channels of party passions. Thus the policy and the will of one country are subjected to the policy
and will of another.
There is an opinion that parties in free countries are useful checks upon the administration
of the government and serve to keep alive the spirit of liberty. But in those of the popular character,
in governments purely elective, it is a spirit not to be encouraged. The Spirit of encroachment tends
to consolidate the powers of all the departments in one and thus to create, whatever the form of
government, a real despotism. The necessity of reciprocal checks in the exercise of political power,
by dividing and distributing it into different depositories and constituting each the guardian of the
public weal against invasions by the others, has been evinced by experiments ancient and modern,
some of them in our country and under our own eyes. Of all the dispositions and habits which lead
to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. Let it simply be asked where
is the security for property, for reputation, for life, if the sense of religious obligation desert the
oaths, which are the instruments of investigation in courts of justice?... reason and experience both
forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle. Against the
insidious wiles of foreign influence (I conjure you to believe me, fellow citizens) the jealousy of a
free people ought to be constantly awake, since history and experience prove that foreign influence
is one of the most baneful foes of republican government.

Mankind is caught in the cycle of fear, apathy and hatred. These human instincts drive
hierarchical political systems and bureaucracies that most often limit the basic right of the pursuit of
happiness. A society whose foundation is fear, apathy and hatred sets up a system which
fundamentally affects the happiness of the individual. It represses individual development and
maintains a cyclical behavioral pattern of superiority and inferiority and a class society founded on
untrue ideals.

longer...You're afraid that you will lose your job, or you are afraid that you will be criticized or that
you will lose your popularity, or you're afraid that somebody will stab you, or shoot at you or bomb
your house; so you refuse to take the stand. Well, you may go on and live until you are 90, but you're
