• The 'Comrade' title is now available in a fetching communist red for purchase by all of you capitalists who survived the Sietch gulag during the people's revolution. And in the spirit of all communists everywhere, it was broken until the capitalist pig dogs fixed it. ;)

Hereby it is manifest that during the time men live without a common Power to keep them all in awe, they are in that condition which is called War; and such a war as is of every man against every man. [...] In such condition there is no place for Industry, because the fruit thereof is uncertain: and consequently no Culture of the Earth; no Navigation, nor use of the commodities that may be imported by Sea; no commodious Building; no Instruments of moving and removing such things as require much force; no Knowledge of the face of the Earth; no account of Time; no Arts; no Letters; no Society; and which is worst of all, continual Fear, and danger of violent death; And the life of man solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short.
-Thomas Hobbes.

Interviewer to Ilkka Kanerva, a long time politician (member of parliament for several decades, a former foreign minister and current chairman of the parliamentary defense committee):

"Have you ever come across a political lie?"

Ilkka Kanerva:

"I am not going to - I can't remember any initial setting that is lie-like, if you allow it we can remake this interview question because I will deny it anyway, if it is possible to you."

Interviewer:

"But you yourself have not had to rely on using a political lie?"

Ilkka Kanerva:

"Politics loses its credibility if one has to rely on these means. One time..." * goes silent for a long time*

Interviewer:

"But have you ever had to rely on a political lie?"

Ilkka Kanerva:

"No."

"The West will not contain Communism, it will transcend Communism. We will not bother to denounce it, we'll dismiss it as a sad, bizarre chapter in human history whose last pages are even now being written."

--Ronald Reagan, May 17, 1981

The surest way to work up a crusade in favor of some good cause is to promise people they will have a chance of maltreating someone. To be able to destroy with good conscience, to be able to behave badly and call your bad behavior 'righteous indignation' — this is the height of psychological luxury, the most delicious of moral treats.”-Aldous Huxley
EDIT: Just realized DarthOne posted the one I did so here's a different one.

"Within the next generation I believe that the world’s rulers will discover that infant conditioning and narco-hypnosis are more efficient, as instruments of government, than clubs and prisons, and that the lust for power can be just as completely satisfied by suggesting people into loving their servitude as by flogging and kicking them into obedience."

- Aldous Huxley, author of Brave New World

"She certainly is a great queen, and were she only a Catholic she would be our dearly beloved. Just look how well she governs; she is only a woman, only mistress of half an island, and yet she makes herself feared by Spain, by France, by the Empire, by all."

- Pope Sixtus V on Queen Elizabeth I of England
