    Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote. -Benjamin Franklin


    The strongest reason for people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government. -Thomas Jefferson

    The forces of a capitalist society, if left unchecked, tend to make the rich richer and the poor poorer.

    Predatory capitalism created a complex industrial system and an advanced technology; it permitted a considerable extension of democratic practice and fostered certain liberal values, but within limits that are now being pressed and must be overcome. It is not a fit system for the mid-twentieth century.

    Experience demands that man is the only animal which devours his own kind, for I can apply no milder term to the general prey of the rich on the poor.

    Advocates of capitalism are very apt to appeal to the sacred principles of liberty, which are embodied in one maxim: The fortunate must not be restrained in the exercise of tyranny over the unfortunate.

    History is crammed full of supposedly clever people saying what appears to be sublimely clever things; which in fact mean fuck all and change nothing.

    "I just took a leaflet out of my mailbox, informing me that I can have sex at 66. I'm so happy, because I live at number 72. So it's not too far to walk home afterwards. And it's the same side of the street, so I don't even have to cross the road!" -- Sid Vicious
