This Week’s Quote: “The tools of conquest do not necessarily come with bombs and explosives and fallout…suspicion can destroy, and a thoughtless, frightened search for a scapegoat has a fallout all of its own; for the children, and the children yet unborn.” —Rod Serling

This Week’s Quote: “The people who are speaking best to this are the psychologists who look at what it is like to live under constant gaze, or under the threat of constant gaze…it makes you different. It makes you more conformist. It makes you less willing to think new thoughts, to try new ideas. It stagnates society…Any social change you look at, whether it’s civil rights or marijuana legalization, whatever your issue is, it starts by people at this end where it is socially unacceptable doing it and having it be okay. And then it spreads slowly. Ubiquitous surveillance at this end stops that process cold.” —Bruce Schneier

31:54 – Idiot Extraordinaire: CNN (nominated by BlameThe1st) http://www.cnn.com/2015/10/19/politics/hillary-clinton-bernie-sanders-poll/

This Week’s Quote: “You now have two distinct ways of gathering information beyond what you yourself can experience. One of them is less a medium than an environment—the Internet—with a huge multiplicity of points of view, lots of different ways to find out what’s going on in the world…a cacophony of viewpoints that doesn’t have any political coherence at all, a beautiful melee, but it doesn’t have the capacity to create large blocs of belief. The other medium, TV, has a…very uniform belief block. TV in America created the most coherent reality distortion field that I’ve ever seen. Therein is the problem: People who vote watch TV, and they are hallucinating like a sonofabitch. Basically, what we have in this country is government by hallucinating mob.” —John Perry Barlow

This Week’s Quote:
“Ideally, what should be said to every child, repeatedly, throughout his or her school life is something like this: ‘You are in the process of being indoctrinated. We have not yet evolved a system of education that is not a system of indoctrination. We are sorry, but it is the best we can do. What you are being taught here is an amalgam of current prejudice and the choices of this particular culture. The slightest look at history will show how impermanent these must be…Those of you who are more robust and individual than others will be encouraged to leave and find ways of educating yourself—educating your own judgements. Those that stay must remember, always, and all the time, that they are being moulded and patterned to fit into the narrow and particular needs of this particular society.” —Doris Lessing

This Week’s Quote: “The minority, the ruling class at present, has the schools and press, usually the Church as well, under its thumb. This enables it to organize and sway the emotions of the masses, and make its tool of them.” —Albert Einstein

This Week’s Quote: “People who argue that ISIS poses a threat to our democracies are out to lunch. ISIS is an ugly phenomenon, but it’s largely the consequence of one blunder after another by the US and its allies in the region, who shouldn’t have been meddling there in the first place…If the US and its allies want to reduce ‘terror’ in the region…they need to stop participating in it.” —Julian Assange

This Week’s Quote: “A scandal is when you find out how a State agency or bureau really works. Firings and reform are the minimalist tools to salve your anger. Then, it’s time to get back to scandalous behavior, this time more shrewdly disguised from you.” —Jim Babka
