The CIA's Amorality

"In my en years with the Agency I only recall one case of many hundreds where a man who had joined the Agency felt some scruples about the activities he was asked to carry on."

-- Allen Dulles, CIA Director, The CIA and the Cult of Intelligence, p. 244

Capitalism is not a success.

"[Capitalism] is not a success. It is not intelligent, it is not beautiful, it is not just, it is not virtuous--and it doesn't deliver the goods. In short, we dislike it, and we are beginning to despise it. But when we wonder what to put in its place, we are extremely perplexed."

-- John Maynard Keynes

Central America was 'never ours to lose'

"The United States has to realize it does not own Central America or any other part of the world, and that people have a right to shape their own destiny, to choose the type of government they want. We don't lose Cuba, we don't lose Nicaragua, because they were never ours to lose."

-- Sister Ita Ford, one of four U.S. churchwomen slain by Salvadoran soldiers in 1980

A leader is best...

"A leader is best when people barely know that he exists; not so good when people obey and acclaim him; worst when they despise him."

-- Lao Tzu

Men love war...

"Men love war because it allows them to look serious. Because it is the one thing that stops women laughing at them."

-- John Fowles, The Magus, 1966

Deliberate distortion of the news...

"The FCC policy against deliberate distortion of the news is not a 'law, rule, or regulation.'"

-- Fox News, from a memorandum filed on behalf of a Fox-owned TV station in Florida, arguing it had committed no offense in dismissing journalists Steve Wilson and Jane Akre for refusing to remove what the reporters considered to be true information from their report on growth hormones and milk.

If you want a Big Brother...

"If you want a Big Brother, you get all that comes with it."

-- Erich Fromm

Groucho on success

"The secret of success is honesty and fair dealing. If you can fake those, you've got it made."

-- Groucho Marx

Causes and Effects

"To think about events realistically, in terms of multiple causations, is hard and emotionally unrewarding. How much easier, how much more agreeable to trace each effect to a single and, if possible, a personal cause! To the illusion of understanding will be joined, in this case, the pleasure of hero worship, if the circumstances are favorable, and the equal, or even greater pleasure, if they are unfavorable, of persecuting a scapegoat."

-- Aldous Huxley

Henry Porter, Last Words

"I want to thank Father Walsh for his spiritual help. I want to thank Bob Ray (Sanders) and Steve Blow for their friendship. What I want people to know is that they call me a cold-blooded killer when I shot a man that shot me first. The only thing that convicted me was that I am a Mexican and that he was a police officer. People hollered for my life, and they are to have my life tonight. The people never hollered for the life of the policeman that killed a thirteen-year-old boy who was handcuffed in the back seat of a police car. The people never hollered for the life of a Houston police officer who beat up and drowned Jose Campo Torres and threw his body in the river. You call that equal justice. This is your equal justice. This is America’s equal justice. A Mexican’s life is worth nothing. When a policeman kills someone he gets a suspended sentence or probation. When a Mexican kills a police officer this is what you get. From there you call me a cold-blooded murderer. I didn’t tie anyone to a stretcher. I didn’t pump any poison into anybody’s veins from behind a locked door. You call this justice. I call this and your society a bunch of cold-blooded murderers. I don’t say this with any bitterness or anger. I just say this with truthfulness. I hope God forgives me for all my sins. I hope that God will be as merciful to society as he has been to me. I’m ready, Warden."

-- Henry Porter, 9 July 1985, last statement of Texas prisoner before being executed
