"We have now sunk to a depth at which restatement of the obvious is the first duty of intelligent men." -George Orwell
"His specialty was alfalfa, and he made a good thing out of not growing any. The government paid him well for every bushel of alfalfa he did not grow. The more alfalfa he did not grow, the more money the government gave him, and he spent every penny he didn't earn on new land to increase the amount of alfalfa he did not produce. Major Major's father worked without rest at not growing alfalfa. On long winter evenings he remained indoors and did not mend harness, and he sprang out of bed at the crack of noon every day just to make certain that the chores would not be done. He invested in land wisely and soon was not growing more alfalfa than any other man in the county." -Joseph Heller, in Catch-22, 1961
"Today Americans would be outraged if U.N. troops entered Los Angeles to restore order; tomorrow they will be grateful! This is especially true if they were told there was an outside threat from beyond, whether real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence. It is then that all peoples of the world will pledge with world leaders to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well being granted to them by their world government."

"According to IMS Health, a research firm that tracks prescription drug sales, nearly 2.98 million prescriptions for antidepressants were written for children and adolescents in 1999 -- more than 11,000 new prescriptions for children every weekday."
"Two towers fell and the federalization of America took less than 48 hours to fall into place."
