"Disobedience is the true foundation of liberty. The obedient must be slaves."
"Naturally, the common people don't want war......., but after all it is theleaders of a country who determine the policy, and its always a simplematter to drag the people along whether its a democracy, or a fascistdictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship...... voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders.That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked,and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing thecountry to danger. It works the same in every country."~ Hermann Goering ~during the course of the Nuremberg Trials after World War IIPublished in the book "Nuremberg Diary" by Gustave M Gilbert"In the beginning of a change, the patriot is a scarce and brave man,hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, however, the timid joinhim, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot."~ Mark Twain ~
