Perception Wheel: Casino Capitalism

Thomas Jefferson

Not every item of news should be published. Rather must those who control news policies endeavour to make every item of news serve a certain purpose.

Walter Bagehot

Persecution in intellectual countries produces a superficial conformity, but also underneath an intense, incessant, implacable doubt.

Winston Churchill

Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing had happened.

Mahatma Gandhi

When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall. Think of it-always.

Lysander Spooner

Those who are capable of tyranny are capable of perjury to sustain it.

Mokokoma Mokhonoana

Ideology only works when it’s the start of public conversation, never as a means to a predetermined end. Ambition’ is ‘greed’ rebranded.

Kurt Vonnegut

Honest, industrious, peaceful citizens were classed as bloodsuckers, if they asked to be paid a living wage. And they saw that praise was reserved henceforth for those who devised means of getting paid enormously for committing crimes against which no laws had been [or could be] passed. Thus the American dream turned belly up, turned green, bobbed to the scummy surface of cupidity unlimited, filled with gas, went bang in the noonday sun.

Noam Chomsky

For those who stubbornly seek freedom, there can be no more urgent task than to come to understand the mechanisms and practices of indoctrination. These are easy to perceive in the totalitarian societies, much less so in the system of 'brainwashing under freedom' to which we are subjected and which all too often we serve as willing or unwitting instruments.

    Addiction is the dominant form of a culture that suffers from a superficial spectacle and celebrity-connectivity at its centre. It’s a form of spiritual emptiness.

  • Woodrow Wilson

    To fight, you must be brutal and ruthless, and the spirit of ruthless brutality will enter into the very fibre of national life.

  • Albert Einstein

    Great spirits have always found violent opposition from mediocrities. The latter cannot understand it when a man does not thoughtlessly submit to hereditary prejudices but honestly and courageously uses his intelligence.
