Quotes of the Week

From the Light:
"The state itself is a continuing war on humanity, reincarnated in every year, in every moment, since the first conscienceless gang of muggers decided it suited them to set a conflagration to fruitful, voluntary society. To extinguish that fire, we must denounce aggression in all of its forms, not just when darker-skinned people in strange garb lash out against American military colonization."
David D'Amato

“There has never been a time when the so-called ‘Left’ party in our two-party system represented a genuine alternative to the ruling class. Always, at all times, it has represented the ‘liberal’ wing of the ruling class. The state, by its nature, cannot be controlled by a majority; it’s an instrument by which a ruling class extracts wealth from the producing majority.”
Kevin Carson

“The average man’s mental horizons are extremely limited, not only in America but also throughout the globe and throughout recorded time. In his political knowledge, opinions, and behavior the average American is for the most part an ignorant savage, so when he sticks his nose into the democratic process he displays much in common with his contemporaries around the globe.”
CJ Maloney

“Quantitative easing is ‘just monetary policy’ like pornography is ‘just cinema.’ QE and pornography both utilize the conventions of mainstream activities in order to conduct and legitimize questionable activities. Chairman Bernanke considers quantitative easing to be an oeuvre d'art - a monetary masterpiece. But to most of the outside world, QE looks like nothing more than monetary porn.”
Eric Fry

“The more freedom the average man has, the more productive he is and the richer we all are for it. Intellectuals and politicians are fundamentally different, because they get richer and more powerful to exactly the same extent that the average man is less free. There is no hope for economic recovery unless we get these intellectual and political parasites off our backs by recognizing the profound role of the average man in creating wealth, and the abject immorality of the intellectuals and politicians who strangulate him.”
Mark R. Crovelli

“Political establishments always favor the ‘status quo’ over ‘change’ because they are the status quo. Any appearance of change that goes beyond tinkering with details and introducing more fundamental questioning of existing arrangements, will be co-opted by the ruling forces and directed toward their ends. In this way, the owners reinforce the popular illusion that the subjects can control the system.”
Butler Shaffer

“One may put it in a word that while government is by its nature concerned with the administration of justice, the State is by its nature concerned with the administration of law- law, which the State itself manufactures for the service of its own primary ends. Therefore an appeal to the State, based on the ground of justice, is futile in any circumstances, for whatever the action the State might take in response to it would be conditioned by the State’s own paramount interest, and would hence be bound to result as we see such action invariably resulting, in as great injustice as that which it pretends to correct, or as a rule, greater.”
Albert Jay Nock

“…..A violation of a person's intrinsic, God bestowed human dignity and transcendent value is evil regardless of how normalized it has become, how culturally acceptable it has become, how 'holy' it has become or how legal it has become.”
Fr. Emmanuel Charles McCarthy

“Yes, any individual may decide to break the natural law in his interactions with other human beings, but the statistical insignificance of a single violation does not in itself doom the human race. But when social institutions are implemented which violate natural law, and when an appreciable percentage of the human race begins to more flagrantly violate natural law in their everyday existence, then the social order—the human-to-human cooperation that is the foundation of continued human existence—is endangered.”
Tzo

From the Darkness:
“You should be prepared to stand with the president against Iran’s nuclear aspirations using whatever means necessary to ensure the mullahs in Tehran do not get their hands on nuclear weapons. And you can stand with the Iranian people who oppose the tyrannical rule of the clerics and concretely support their efforts to win their freedom – even if the president does not.
You need to say no to cutting the necessities in our defense budget when we are engaged in two wars and face so many threats – from Islamic extremists to a nuclear Iran to a rising China
You can stand with allies like Israel, not criticize them.”
Sarah Palin, in an “open letter” to Republican freshman representatives.

“In a time of war—and that’s what we’re in with Muslim jihadists—you have to do things you would not ordinarily do. For example, Abraham Lincoln suspended habeas corpus during the Civil War. So to waterboard three high-ranking terror suspects in order to get valuable information that likely saved thousands of lives seems to be logical and responsible unless you live in a theoretical world where feeling noble is the ultimate objective.”
Bill O’Reilly

“AIT [Advance Imaging Technology] machines are safe, efficient, and protect passenger privacy. They have been independently evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration, the National Institute of Standards and Technology, and the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, who have all affirmed their safety.”
Homeland Security head Janet Napolitano

“If this country ever wants to be energy independent, if we ever want to stop sending our monies to the terrorists who want to take our freedoms away and kill us, we’ve got to wean ourselves off all this foreign oil. We’ve got to make this decision: do you want to stop sending your money to terrorists and have terrorists come here, or do you not?”
New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg

"I'm wildly excited that I can walk through a [TSA naked body scanner] machine instead of getting my dose of love pats.”
Sen. Claire McCaskill

“There’s a little bug inside of me which wants to get the FCC to say to FOX and to MSNBC: ‘Out. Off. End. Goodbye.’ It would be a big favor to political discourse; our ability to do our work here in Congress, and to the American people, to be able to talk with each other and have some faith in their government and more importantly, in their future.”
Sen. Jay Rockefeller
 
“I am very sensitive to and concerned about people’s privacy concerns and I want to work through that as best we can."
John Pistole, TSA Chief Molester

"In taking that action, [counterfeiting $600 billion new dollars] the Committee seeks to support the economic recovery, promote a faster pace of job creation, and reduce the risk of a further decline in inflation that would prove damaging to the recovery."
Ben Bernanke, admitting the Fed causes and promotes inflation.

"Striking the right balance is what this is about. And I am absolutely confident that our security experts are gonna keep trying to get it better and less intrusive and more precise."
Queen Hillary, expressing her faith in the TSA thugs.

All in good time, by friend, all in good time. It’s good to see you in the holiday spirit. :-)

But seriously, how can you say such hateful things about one of my best and most reliable sources for “darkness” quotes? Stinkin’ Lincoln created Turkey Day to give thanks for just such brilliant and engaging minds as hers. Don’t you study history?
