"“Unsere Regierung ist die kriminellste der Welt. Zweifellos, auch die meisten anderen sind kriminell – USA, Saudi-
Arabien, Israel, Türkei, um nur einige Beispiele zu nennen. Aber während diese ihre kriminelle Energie nach außen
richten, gegen andere Völker, richtet die deutsche Regierung ihre Aggressivität gegen das eigene Volk – sie ist keine
deutsche, sondern eine antideutsche Regierung. (Jürgen Elsässers)(2015)” Elsässer: “Deutsche Regierung ist die kriminellste der Welt.”
But the problem is that when you poison the whole common world, you are also poisoned. If you poison the air which the common people breathe, the air that the king breathes will also be poisoned; it cannot be separate -- it is all one. When the priest poisons the common people, finally he also is poisoned. When the politician poisons the common people´s air, finally he also breathes the same air -- there is no other air. (Osho)
Progress made under the shadow of the policeman's club is false progress.
I believe that liberty is the only genuinely valuable thing that men have invented, at least in the field of government, in a thousand years. I believe that it is better to be free than to be not free, even when the former is dangerous and the latter safe. I believe that the finest qualities of man can flourish only in free air – that progress made under the shadow of the policeman's club is false progress, and of no permanent value. I believe that any man who takes the liberty of another into his keeping is bound to become a tyrant, and that any man who yields up his liberty, in however slight the measure, is bound to become a slave. (H. L. Mencken)
Governments need armies to protect them against their enslaved and oppressed subjects. (Leo Tolstoy)
