“The fact is that every war suffers a kind of progressive degradation with every month that it continues, because such things as individual liberty and a truthful press are simply not compatible with military efficiency.”

— George Orwell,   Homage to Catalonia, 1938

“Those who can make you believe absurdities, can make you commit atrocities.”  – Voltaire                                                        

“The great strength of the totalitarian state is that it forces those who fear it to imitate it.”

“The art of leadership…consists in consolidating the attention of the people against a single adversary and taking care that nothing will split up that attention.” 

Adolf Hitler (both from Mein Kampf)
