Today’s public figures can no longer write their own speeches or books, and there is some evidence that they can’t read them either. 
( Gore Vidal )

If we pollute the air, water and soil that keep us alive and well, and destroy the biodiversity that allows natural systems to function, no amount of money will save us.
( David Suzuki )

We Are Governed By Men We Have Never Heard Of ..
The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organised 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 country.
We are governed, our minds are moulded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of.
This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organised.
Vast numbers of human beings must cooperate in this manner if they are to live together as a smoothly functioning society.
In almost every act of our daily lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business, in our social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses.
It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind.

( Edward Bernays )

The concept that the people running the Brexit campaign would care for the NHS is a rather odd one.
I seem to remember Michael Gove wanting to privatise it.
Boris wanted to charge people for using it.
And Iain Duncan Smith wanted a social insurance system.
The NHS is about as safe with them as a pet hamster would be with a hungry python.
( Sir John Major )

We’re in a giant car heading towards a brick wall and everyones arguing over where they’re going to sit. 
( David Suzuki )

Nations who suck-up to a nation rooted in oppression, torture, exploitation and executions are no different than a slave who defends his master.
( Dion Felsrow )

No one owns the land, or the water or the sea.
These were all given to us by Mother Nature, for free.
It’s only the greedy, the corrupt and the callous that force us to pay a fee.
( Wilfred Soon )

According to official government figures there were 10,373 foreign national offenders living in the UK at the end of 2020.
After being released from prison, instead of being deported, many are let back out on the streets.
This was up more than 160% on 2012, when it was less than 4,000.
( Flori Swedon )

There are invisible rulers who control the destinies of millions.
It is not generally realised to what extent the words and actions of our most influential public men are dictated by shrewd persons operating behind the scenes.
( Edward Bernays )

We live in a society where our Government MPs claim £25 a day food allowance, while tens of thousands are forced to rely on food banks to survive.
( Rose Winfold )

It’s a crazy country.
It’s like a junkie.
Every few years they go to war.
They need their fix.
They’re lunatics.
( Norman Finkelstein on Israel )

It’s All An Illusion And A Distraction ..
Manufactured enemies of the people made to look bigger and more dangerous by the government who are deliberately stirring, scapegoating and distorting insignificant issues.
From statue protesters, gypsies and BLM activists to welfare cheats and benefit scroungers to threats from Russia and China to immigrants and the EU.
These groups have one common purpose: To divert and deflect attention from real problems and the failure of this incompetent, and mostly corrupt government to deal with them.
( Wilfred Soon )

The genius of our ruling class is that it has kept a majority of the people from ever questioning the inequity of a system where most people drudge along paying heavy taxes for which they get nothing in return.
( Gore Vidal )

The environment is so fundamental to our continued existence that it must transcend politics and become a central value of all members of society.
( David Suzuki )

The Conservative Party.
An elite circle of arrogance and wealth, obsessed with power, brought up believing they were born to rule, that the sun shines out of their arse, that only their happiness matters, that money is more important than the lives of ordinary people.
They are not in the least bit concerned about homelessness, hunger and poverty.
The truth is that they hold ordinary people in utter contempt.
( Len Firswood )

The government is corrupt.
The media keeps you distracted with mindless celebrity bull-shit.
The wars are about resources and financial control.
You have more in common with the people being bombed than the billionaires that are controlling you.
Once weapons were manufactured to fight wars.
Now wars are manufactured to sell weapons.
( Fred O. Wilson )

Universal literacy was supposed to educate the common man to control his environment.
Once he could read and write he would have a mind fit to rule.
So ran the democratic doctrine.
But instead of a mind, universal literacy has given him rubber stamps, rubber stamps inked with advertising slogans, with editorials, with published scientific data, with the trivialities of the tabloids and the platitudes of history, but quite innocent of original thought.
Each man’s rubber stamps are the duplicates of millions of others, so that when those millions are exposed to the same stimuli, all receive identical imprints.
It may seem an exaggeration to say that the American public gets most of its ideas in this wholesale fashion.
The mechanism by which ideas are disseminated on a large scale is propaganda, in the broad sense of an organised effort to spread a particular belief or doctrine.
( Edward Bernays )

As societies grow decadent, the language grows decadent, too.
Words are used to disguise, not to illuminate, action.
You liberate a city by destroying it.
Words are to confuse, so that at election time people will solemnly vote against their own interests.
( Gore Vidal )

As we distance ourselves further from the natural world, we are increasingly surrounded by and dependent on our own inventions.
We become enslaved by the constant demands of technology created to serve us. 
( David Suzuki )
