Beyond the Veil

"Let us never tolerate outrageous conspiracy theories concerning the attacks of September the 11th."

"Next the statesman will invent cheap lies,puting the blame upon the nation that is attacked,and every man will be glad of those conscience-soothing falsities,and will diligently study them,and refuse to examine any refutations of them; and thus he will by and by convince himself that the war is just,and will thank God for the better sleep he enjoys after this process of grotesque self-deception."
Mark Twain

"If the freedom of speech is taken away,then dumb and silent we may be led,like sheep to the slaughter."
George Washington
"Of course the people don't want war.But after all,it's the leader of the country who determine the policy,and it's always a simple matter to drag the people along whetter it's a democracy,a fascist dictatorship,or a parliament,or a comunist 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 greater danger".

Herman Goering at the Nuremberg trials.
