Some Quotations that Demonstrate the Underlying Philosophy of Since the New Deal: An Annotated Chronology of the Events that Have Changed the United States

 

Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past..

-- George Orwell

All history is a selection out of an infinite number of facts..

-- Howard Zinn

The number one rule for journalists to remember: governments lie..

-- I. F. Stone

Known history is like the visible surface of... [a] sculpture.... The hidden parts of history, the covert sides,... can be seen and understood only if you are told where to look. The holes in history are what make sense of the thing. The hidden motives, secret agendas, classified purposes: All these tell the why of human events..

-- John Loftus and Mark Aarons

In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous use of misplaced power exists and will persist..

-- Dwight D. Eisenhower

Prolonged secrecy does not serve national security. It arouses suspicion and allows rumor or false report to harden into accepted fact.

-- Herbert Feis

The size of the lie is a definite factor in causing it to be believed, because the vast masses of a nation are in the depths of their hearts more easily deceived than they are consciously and intentionally bad. The primitive simplicity of their minds renders them more easy victims of a big lie than a small one, because they themselves often tell little ones but would be ashamed to tell big lies..

Such a form of lying would never enter their heads. They would never credit others with the possibility of such great impudence as the complete reversal of facts. Even explanations would long leave them in doubt and hesitation, and any trifling reason would dispose them to accept a thing as true..

Something therefore always remains and sticks from the most impudent lies, a fact which all bodies and individuals concerned in the art of lying in this world know only too well, and therefore they will stop at nothing to achieve this end..

-- Adolf Hitler
