The Totalitarian Mind Does Not Need a Totalitarian State to Thrive

A stopped clock is correct twice a day.

A stopped digital clock ain't worth a pinch a coon shit.

Die Gedanken sind frei.

"Jones wasn't completely crazy. The dismaying thing about classic totalitarian mind is that any given gear, thought mutilated, will have at its circumference unbroken sequences of teeth that are immaculately maintained, that are exquisitely machined. "

Machine Men with machine minds.

The hate of men will pass, and dictators die, and the power they took from the people will return to the people. And so long as men die, liberty will never perish. .....

Soldiers! don’t give yourselves to brutes - men who despise you - enslave you - who regiment your lives - tell you what to do - what to think and what to feel! Who drill you - diet you - treat you like cattle, use you as cannon fodder.

Don’t give yourselves to these unnatural men - machine men with machine minds and machine hearts! You are not machines! You are not cattle!

You are men! You have the love of humanity in your hearts! You don’t hate! Only the unloved hate - the unloved and the unnatural!

Soldiers! Don’t fight for slavery! Fight for liberty!


Whats sad is that the Communists/Socialists claim this speech as their own, when infact it is an inictment of them and those who think like them.

Nice collection of quotes, Gerard.

"The willful filling off a gear teeth, the willful doing without certain obvious pieces of information...."

Thus is born manipulation & trickery.


Personal power.

God is Truth and must be spoken wholly (and with trembling), else it is a lie of ommission/commission... and - I may add - something your father despised.

So does this mean you should never speak again - considering the fact that Truth is bottomless and the telling of it all is tedious? No. But to speak the Truth wholly, within the spirit of Love towards the listener/receiver would you be allowed the grace to speak.

Otherwise, silence is best.

"That is the closest I can come to explaining the legions, the nations of lunatics I've seen in my time.”

Nice of him to put the results of his introspection into his stories.

In my newly minted gov't job, I am not allowed to request a balance of my P.O. accounts. It just isn't done! The "program analyst" (Hell if I know who mine is) manages all that. However, I am routinely asked by procurement drones to give them permission to move funds from bucket A to Bucket C in order to pay invoices we get from private agencies for services rendered. So. I'm burdened with a fiduciary duty to the taxpayer for which I have no empowerment to fulfill with any certainty.

For one, brief, shining moment we were Camelot. "Run, boy. Run behind the lines. Li-i-i-ive boy! Ru-u-u-u-n!!!"
