“In an age of deceit, telling the truth in a revolutionary act”. –  George Orwell.

“The men that American people admire most extravagantly are the most daring liars; the men they detest the most violently are those who try to tell them the truth”.  –  – H.L. Mencken

“Power Corrupts. Trust me on this. And because power corrupts, humanity’s need for those in Power to be of high character increases as the importance of the position of leadership increases.” We are discussing character, correct? Not intelligence. Some of the most intelligent leaders in History have brought disaster to their nations, because intelligence is powerless to modify character. Great leadership is a product of great character. That is why character matters”.  – Abraham Lincoln.

“All deception requires secrecy. Secrecy is the #1 weapon of tyranny. You have to be able to do things in secret that nobody knows about to have a successful tyranny. They need deception.” – V.I. Lenin

“Intellect deteriorates after every surrender to folly: unless we consciously resist, the nonsense does not pass by us but into us.” Jacques Barzun.

“The principle of spending money to be paid by posterity under the name of funding is but Swindling Futurity on a large scale.” Thomas Jefferson.

“In an Age of Deceit telling the truth is a Revolutionary Act.” George Orwell

“Power concedes nothing without demand. It never did and it never will. Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have the exact measure of the injustice and wrong, which will be imposed on them, and these will continue until they have been resisted with either words or blows or with both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they suppress.”  – Fredrick Douglas

“I believe that it is better to tell the truth than a lie.  I believe it is better to be free than to be a slave. And I believe it is better to know than to be ignorant” – H. L. Mencken
