Quotes


  • And we are now men…

    And we are now men, and must accept in the highest mind the same transcendent destiny; and not minors and invalids in a protected corner, not cowards fleeing before a revolution, but guides, redeemers and benefactors, obeying the Almighty effort and advancing on Chaos and the Dark.

    — Ralph Waldo Emerson
    "Self-Reliance"

  • Totalitarianism is not a historical coincidence

    Totalitarianism is not a historical coincidence. It is the logical consequence of mechanistic thinking and the delusional belief in the omnipotence of human rationality.

  • Don’t Wait for Someone Else to Make a Start

    If everyone waits till someone else makes a start, the messengers of the avenging Nemesis will draw incessantly closer. And then the last sacrifice will have been thrown senselessly into the jaws of the insatiable demon. Therefore in this last hour every individual must arm himself as best he can, aware of his responsibility as a member of the Christian and western civilization. He must work against the hostage of humanity, against fascism and all similar systems of an absolute State. Offer passive resistance—resistance, wherever you may be, prevent the continuation of this atheistic war machine before it is too late…

  • The Preference of Authoritarians

    Authoritarians prefer that ordinary citizens, especially citizen journalists, not speak up or speak out. They fear, as Hayek warned, that unfiltered information, “might produce results which cannot be foreseen and for which the plan does not provide. It might produce something new, undreamt of in the philosophy of the planner.”

    — James O'Keefe
    American Pravda

  • Stop the Machine

    Let your life be a counter friction to stop the machine. What I have to do is to see, at any rate, that I do not lend myself to the wrong which I condemn.

  • When Tyranny and Inefficiency Are Great and Unendurable…

    All men recognize the right of revolution, that is, the right to refuse allegiance to and to resist the government, when its tyranny or its inefficiency are great and unendurable.

    "Civil Disobedience"

  • Dinesh D’Souza on FBI Raid of Mar-A-Lago

    The Democrats stole the 2020 election. They know Trump beat them twice, in 2016 and in 2020. Naturally they’re terrified he’ll win again in 2024. This is the key to understanding the Biden DOJ’s desperate motives for the raid and for putting him away.

  • When The Bewildered Masses Finally Realize…

    The enemy, The Party, absolutely needs to follow through with what they are trying to achieve, or they will get exposed, and they either suffer greatly or perish under the wrath of the masses.

    When the bewildered masses finally realize what has been done to them, what they essentially did to themselves, to their health, to their lives, to their assets, to their society, to their kids… to their minds and souls… they won’t be in the mood for forgiveness, nor they should be.

  • Paul Kingsnorth on What Covid has Confirmed

    Covid is a revelation. It has lain bare splits in the social fabric that were always there but could be ignored in better times. It has revealed the compliance of the legacy media and the power of Silicon Valley to curate and control the public conversation. It has confirmed the sly dishonesty of political leaders, and their ultimate obeisance to corporate power. It has shown up ‘The Science’ for the compromised ideology it is.

  • Frederick Douglass – Power concedes nothing without a demand.

    Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will. Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have found out the exact measure of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them, and these will continue till they are resisted with either words or blows, or with both.
