"From the day when battery-run voices began broadcasting old speeches to battery-run listeners, the beast has been talking to itself. Having swallowed everyone and everything outside itself, the beast becomes its own sole frame of reference. It entertains itself, exploits itself, and wars on itself. It has reached the end of its progress for there is nothing left for it to progress against except itself."
-Fredy Perlman, Against His-story, Against the Leviathan! 1983

What makes America exceptional are the bonds that hold together the most diverse nation on earth. The belief that our destiny is shared; that this country only works when we accept certain obligations to one another and to future generations. The freedom which so many Americans have fought for and died for come with responsibilities as well as rights. And among those are love and charity and duty and patriotism. That’s what makes America great.

"Patriotism is the principle that will justify the training of wholesale murderers."
-Leo Tolstoy

which I believe inspired the commentary on certain lyrics:
"Regime… Never questioned the source of information. The infiltration of communism into every single thing had us all scared to death with no hope to live for. They thought they were raising soldiers. They were raising fools."

The mind is like a parachute...it doesn't work unless it's open- Frank Zappa I'm not a clever wordsmith, so I'll also just quote Bobby, when interviewed on the Mother McRee's album. "I have nothing to say." - Bob Weir

Those who enjoy their own emotionally bad health and who habitually fill their own minds with the rank poisons of suspicion, jealousy and hatred, as a rule take umbrage at those who refuse to do likewise, and they find a perverted relief in trying to denigrate them.
