No person is so grand or wise or perfect as to be the master of another person. Teacher, perhaps. Setter of good example, perhaps. Genius, perhaps. But master, no. Karl Hess

Good quote, 'specially when you consider the definition of "society."

*

Few things in life are more disgusting to a man than to hear another man bleating the refrain of:

"This place sucks, and here I am."

Uh huh.

Good point. That posting gives the impression that Orwell advocated such. And everyone talks about Orwell, it's said that he wrote some book that folks are always mentioning so cool, let's be relevant.

Lots of visual noise and misleading content.

Sigh, it obviously has to be done to fulfill some need, don't you know.

“Comrades!” he cried. “You do not imagine, I hope, that we pigs are doing this in a spirit of selfishness and privilege? Many of us actually dislike milk and apples. Milk and apples (this has been proved by Science, comrades) contain substances absolutely necessary to the well-being of a pig. We pigs are brainworkers. The whole management and organization of this farm depend on us. Day and night we are watching over your welfare. It is for your sake that we drink that milk and eat those apples.”

- Squealer, the Animal Farm propagandist pig
Sounds like the reasoning of the elite Climate Czars who travel the world in private luxury jets and meet for annual parties and banquets.

Why are you so scared to say what you want to say? Are you this cowardly and annoying in real life? Were you punished as a child for speaking your mind?
