Quotes of the Week

From the Light:
"Young people must be taught to shun the State as their mortal enemy, rather than to embrace it as their redeemer."
William Norman Grigg

"The fact is that the average man's love of liberty is nine-tenths imaginary, exactly like his love of sense, justice and truth. He is not actually happy when free; he is uncomfortable, a bit alarmed, and intolerably lonely. Liberty is not a thing for the great masses of men. It is the exclusive possession of a small and disreputable minority, like knowledge, courage and honor. It takes a special sort of man to understand and enjoy liberty-- and he is usually an outlaw in democratic societies."
H.L. Mencken, Baltimore Evening Sun, Feb. 12, 1923
From the Darkness:
"America stands in firm opposition to China's detention of political dissidents, human rights advocates and religious activists. We speak out for a free press, freedom of assembly and labor rights — not to antagonize China's leaders, but because trusting its people with greater freedom is the only way for China to develop its full potential."
GW Bush, the ultimate hypocrite
