The object of terrorism is terrorism. Now, do you begin to understand me?
— George Orwell, 1984.
“One’s got to change the system, or one changes nothing. One can’t put things right in a hole-and-corner way.”
“Nationalism is power hunger tempered by self-deception.”
“If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.”
“One of the reasons why so few of us ever act, instead of react, is because we are continually stifling our deepest impulses. ”
Myths which are believed in tend to become true.
“The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power.”
