They hate our freedoms: our freedom of religion, our freedom of speech, our freedom to vote and assemble and disagree with each other.” – the unelected, court appointed George Bush the Second, September 20, 2001, in a national address at a joint session of Congress. “…the essential act of the P arty is to use conscious deception while retaining firmness of purpose that goes with complete honesty.� To tell deliberate lies while genuinely believing in them, to forget any fact which becomes inconvenient, and then, when it becomes necessary again, to draw it back from oblivion for just so long as it is needed, to deny the existence of objective reality all the while to take into account the reality which one denies – all this is indispensably necessary.� Even in using the word doublethink it is necessary to exercise doublethink. – George Orwell, 1984. [389] � "Why of co urse the people don't want war.� Why should some poor slob on a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best he can get out of it is to come back to his farm in one piece?� Naturally the common people don't want war neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany.� That is understood.� But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, 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 the country to danger.� It works the same in any country." - Hermann Goering, at the Nuremberg Trials, as told to Gustave Gilbert, in his Nuremberg Diary.� “Nationalism is an inf antile disease.� It is the measles of mankind." - Albert Einstein, in Fred Jerome’s The Einstein File: J.
