"If you want to now who controls you, look at who you are not allowed to criticize."
"You have a chance of learning -- if you want to and you're not arrogant." - Gene Sharp
"At some point you have to recognize what world it is that you belong to; what power rules it and from what source you spring; that there is a limit to the time assigned you, and if you don't use it to free yourself it will be gone and will never return."
- Marcus Aurelius
