„The Assembly has witnessed over the last weeks how historical truth is established; once an allegation has been repeated a few times, it is no longer an allegation, it is an established fact, even if no evidence has been brought out in order to support it.“

On accusations by Nikita Khrushchev, as quoted in The Times [London] (4 October 1960)

„War has been the necessary and inevitable consequence of the establishment of a monopoly on security.“

—  Gustave de Molinari Belgian political economist and classical liberal theorist 1819 - 1912

Quelle: The Production of Security (1849), p. 34-35
Kontext: Everywhere, when societies originate, we see the strongest, most warlike races seizing the exclusive government of the society. Everywhere we see these races seizing a monopoly on security within certain more or less extensive boundaries, depending on their number and strength.And, this monopoly being, by its very nature, extraordinarily profitable, everywhere we see the races invested with the monopoly on security devoting themselves to bitter struggles, in order to add to the extent of their market, the number of their forced consumers, and hence the amount of their gains.War has been the necessary and inevitable consequence of the establishment of a monopoly on security.Another inevitable consequence has been that this monopoly has engendered all other monopolies.

„We discussed education and culture and how we can inculcate values. The other issue was pollution of ideology, national ideology…Some people alleged that we are doing saffronisation. If at all saffronisation has been done, it has been done by the public of India. We accept the mandate of the people.“

—  Mahesh Sharma Indian politician 1959

„Blind faith in established experience has been shattered, outmoded regulations have been smashed.“

—  Ba Jin Chinese novelist 1904 - 2005

A Battle For Life (July 1958)
Kontext: The battle to save life is still going on. Up till now Lao Chiu has already lived for forty-four days. He lives on stubbornly and endures all suffering. Already he has become a banner, a fresh red banner. Many people regard him as a source of encouragement and as a model for them. Many consider him as a personification of the noble qualities of the working class and as a shining example of the great spirit of communism.
This battle to save life will eventually be won. The fact that Lao Chiu has lived until now is already a medical marvel. He has passed through one crisis after another and later he may face still more. But he will certainly live. Blind faith in established experience has been shattered, outmoded regulations have been smashed.

„American literature has been, and is, singularly deficient in established critics who have anything like a rational conception of their jobs.“

—  Burton Rascoe American writer 1892 - 1957

"Fanfare", in H. L. Mencken (1920)
Kontext: American literature has been, and is, singularly deficient in established critics who have anything like a rational conception of their jobs. The majority, initiate in a few of the patent rituals of Aristotle and Quintilian, don the forbidding robes of high priests to Sweetness and Light, and go about their business much as if the idea were to keep all they know to themselves.
