          The majority is never right. Never, I tell you! That’s one of these lies in society that no free and intelligent man can ever help rebelling against. Who are the people that make up the biggest proportion of the population — the intelligent ones or the fools? I think we can agree it’s the fools, no matter where you go in this world, it’s the fools that form the overwhelming majority.

– Henrik Ibsen (1828-1906) Norwegian playwright, theatre director, and poet

 That is absolutely true GO. And the sooner we put that into practise the better. Many people have warned us about petty and not so petty dictatorships. Who among us would have spoken out under the Third Reich?  Who among us is willing to speak out under the Fourth Reich as it stands today?  Nonsense To Right

"You get up on your little twenty-one inch screen and howl about America and democracy. There is no America. There is no democracy. There is only IBM and ITT and AT&T, and DuPont, Dow, Union Carbide and Exxon. Those are the nations of the world today."

A little bit leaning towards victimization Surly1.

Sometimes one creates a dynamic impression by saying something, and sometimes one creates as significant an impression by remaining silent.

Diner Memorable Quotes: K-Dog 10/5/2014

Quote of the Year:

Blogging and commenting on blogs carries on an American tradition of freedom power would like silenced.  Those  who support BAU deny truth for truth is now against them.  Those to whom I allude are active with time, money, and effort making sure blogging is relegated to a marginal activity.  Those who would do this have no shame and will do whatever is possible to break up any and all discussions of substance.  It is a matter of life, death, and national security.

They are the sophist of modern times.  To them right and wrong are what people say is right and wrong nothing more.  Saying makes it so.  To them might makes right and whatever is necessary to get what one desires is the righteous cosmic order of the universe.  Success is everything, nothing else matters but the man in the mirror.  Being your bane is their self-validation that they are alive.

The thought that nothing compensates for losing your soul is given no attention.  There is no search for a higher way.

So why would one haunt the commentariat? 

If blogging is silenced and controlled what way left is there for Americans to practice political discourse?  There is none.  The charade of the current two party system long ago destroyed real democracy and dialogue.  The MSM is owned by the two party system and BAU.  Without blogging only collapse is possible.

"Live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart. Trouble no one about his religion. Respect others in their views and demand that they respect yours. Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life. Seek to make your life long and of service to your people. Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide.

Always give a word or sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend, or even a stranger, if in a lonely place. Show respect to all people, but grovel to none. When you rise in the morning, give thanks for the light, for your life, for your strength. Give thanks for your food and for the joy of living. If you see no reason to give thanks, the fault lies in yourself.

Abuse no one and no thing, for abuse turns the wise ones to fools and robs the spirit of its vision. When your time comes to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song, and die like a hero going home." 


-Tecumseh (1768-1813) Shawnee Chief

Surly, your post this morning caused me to look up the famous Chief on Wikipedia and I came upon an interesting photo historic item that I thought would compliment your posting. Hope you find it interesting as well.


                                                   
                                                    Portraits of Pushmataha (left) and Tecumseh (right).

  "These white Americans ... give us fair exchange, their cloth, their guns, their tools, implements, and other things which the Choctaws need but do not make ... So in marked contrast with the experience of the Shawnee, it will be seen that the whites and Indians in this section are living on friendly and mutually beneficial terms." —Pushmataha, 1811[23]

"Where today are the Pequot? Where are the Narragansett, the Mochican, the Pocanet, and other powerful tribes of our people? They have vanished before the avarice and oppression of the white man ... Sleep not longer, O Choctaws and Chickasaws ... Will not the bones of our dead be plowed up, and their graves turned into plowed fields?" —Tecumseh, 1811[24]

25 Powerful Quotes From Bill Hicks

Revolutionary Ideas: 25 Powerful Quotes From Bill Hicks

June 28, 2015
5811
 

Bill Hicks was an American stand-up comic who died far too early in life. His comedy was absolutely life-changing, helped break down our egos, and improve our lives. He passed away when we was 32, after successfully exposing the faults of our world for 19 years. Bill even said himself, “Listen, the next revolution is gonna be a revolution of ideas.” So, in memory of that idea, here are 25 powerful quotes from Bill that perfectly summarize his life’s work:

1. “They lie about marijuana. Tell you pot-smoking makes you unmotivated. Lie! When you’re high, you can do everything you normally do just as well — you just realize that it’s not worth the fucking effort. There is a difference.”
2. “I’m tired of this back-slappin’ “isn’t humanity neat” bullshit. We’re a virus with shoes.”
3. “I don’t mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that’s how it comes out.”
4. “We all pay for life with death, so everything in between should be free.”
5. “Watching television is like taking black spray paint to your third eye.”
6. “The whole image is that eternal suffering awaits anyone who questions God’s infinite love. That’s the message we’re brought up with, isn’t it? Believe or die! Thank you, forgiving Lord, for all those options.”
7. “The world is like a ride in an amusement park. And when you choose to go on it, you think it’s real because that’s how powerful our minds are. And the ride goes up and down and round and round. It has thrills and chills and it’s very brightly colored and it’s very loud and it’s fun, for a while. Some people have been on the ride for a long time and they begin to question: “Is this real, or is this just a ride?” And other people have remembered, and they come back to us, they say, “Hey, don’t worry, don’t be afraid, ever, because this is just a ride.” And we kill those people.”
8.“I loved when Bush came out and said, ‘We are losing the war against drugs.’ You know what that implies? There’s a war being fought, and the people on drugs are winning it.”
9. “I believe that there is an equality to all humanity. We all suck.”
10. “Folks, it’s time to evolve. That’s why we’re troubled. You know why our institutions are failing us, the church, the state, everything’s failing? It’s because, um – they’re no longer relevant. We’re supposed to keep evolving. Evolution did not end with us growing opposable thumbs. You do know that, right?”
11. “This is where we are at right now, as a whole. No one is left out of the loop. We are experiencing a reality based on a thin veneer of lies and illusions. A world where greed is our God and wisdom is sin, where division is key and unity is fantasy, where the ego-driven cleverness of the mind is praised, rather than the intelligence of the heart.”
12. “Why is marijuana against the law? It grows naturally upon our planet. Doesn’t the idea of making nature against the law seem to you a bit …unnatural?”
13. “The definition of black irony is Pro-lifers killing Doctors who do abortions”
14. “I get a kick out of being an outsider constantly. It allows me to be creative. I don’t like anything in the mainstream and they don’t like me.”
15. “I ascribe to Mark Twain’s theory that the last person who should be President is the one who wants it the most. The one who should be picked is the one who should be dragged kicking and screaming into the White House.”
16. “Oh sorry, I was taking life seriously.”
17. “I can’t watch TV longer than five minutes without praying for nuclear holocaust.”
18. “I never got along with my dad. Kids used to come up to me and say, “My dad can beat up your dad.” I’d say Yeah? When?”
19. “You see, I think drugs have done some good things for us. I really do. And if you don’t believe drugs have done good things for us, do me a favor. Go home tonight. Take all your albums, all your tapes and all your CDs and burn them. ‘Cause you know what, the musicians that made all that great music that’s enhanced your lives throughout the years were rrreal fucking high on drugs. The Beatles were so fucking high they let Ringo sing a few tunes.”
20. “Wouldn’t you like to see a positive LSD story on the news? To base your decision on information rather than scare tactics and superstition? Perhaps? Wouldn’t that be interesting? Just for once? ‘Today, a young man on acid realized that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration – that we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively. There’s no such thing as death, life is only a dream, and we’re the imagination of ourselves. Here’s Tom with the weather.‘”
21. “This is the material, by the way, that has kept me virtually anonymous in America for the past 15 years. Gee, I wonder why we’re hated the world over? Look at these fat Americans in the front row – ‘Why doesn’t he just hit fruit with a hammer?’ Folks, I could have done that, walked around being a millionaire and franchising myself but no, I had to have this weird thing about trying to illuminate the collective unconscious and help humanity. Fucking moron.”
22. “Life is only a dream and we are the imagination of ourselves.”
23. “I know this is not a very popular idea. You don’t hear it too often any more … but it’s the truth. I have taken drugs before and … I had a real good time. Sorry. Didn’t murder anybody, didn’t rape anybody, didn’t rob anybody, didn’t beat anybody, didn’t lose – hmm – one fucking job, laughed my ass off, and went about my day. Sorry. Now, where’s my commercial?”
24. “It’s great to be here. I thank you. Ah, I’ve been on the road doing comedy for ten years now, so bear with me while I plaster on a fake smile and plow through this shit one more time.”
25. “I left in love, in laughter, and in truth, and wherever truth, love, and laughter abide, I am there in spirit.”

And there I stand in the minority, even on itsy bits websites, with wonderful quotes from others to prove the value of their thoughts, versus mine. GO GO!!

"I am not terrified of the terrorists; i.e., I am not, myself, terrorized.
Rather, I am terrified of the terrorized; terrified of the bovine masses who are so easily manipulated by terrorists, governments, and the terror-amplifying media into allowing our country to slip toward totalitarianism and total war."
– Dan Sanchez
