Mar­tin Luther King — under­stood the prob­lem of the silent sheeple

His­to­ry will have to record that the great­est tragedy of this peri­od of social tran­si­tion was not the stri­dent clam­or of the bad peo­ple, but the appalling silence of the good peo­ple.”

Pho­to George Bernard Shaw

You have to choose between trust­ing the nat­ur­al sta­bil­i­ty of gold and the nat­ur­al sta­bil­i­ty and hon­esty of the mem­bers of the gov­ern­ment. And with due respect for these gen­tle­men, i advise you as long as the cap­i­tal­ist sys­tem lasts, to vote for gold.”

Quote — Alexander Haig on Taxes

Alexander Haig

Mr Alexan­der Haig, a true “Patri­ot”?

Let them march all they want, as long as they con­tin­ue to pay their tax­es.”

US sec­re­tary of state who failed to avert the Falk­lands war, and the chief of staff who sus­tained Richard Nixon’s pres­i­den­cy. He nev­er faced an elec­torate in his life, but he ran the White House almost in secret dur­ing the 15 months up to Pres­i­dent Richard Nixon’s res­ig­na­tion in August 1974 – tak­ing over the impe­tus of a paral­ysed pres­i­den­cy in a man­ner that, how­ev­er nec­es­sary under the cir­cum­stances, was bare­ly con­sti­tu­tion­al.

The Dean of Sci­ence Fic­tion Robert A Hein­lein

Every Con­gress­man, every Sen­a­tor knows pre­cise­ly what caus­es inflation…but can’t, (won’t) sup­port the dras­tic reforms to stop it (repeal of the Fed­er­al Reserve Act) because it could cost him his job.”
