Valley of the Moon

As I was scanning UKTabloids, I was thinking(yes I know what happened last time and I said I would not do it again) about the perilous state our government had brought us to. Deliberately.

And I thought, this is going to be great for some of our young people if the pressure cooker does explode. They are going to either wind up in jail or worse, because of events that were brought about by the agents of the New World Order and the creaters of Eurabia. And through no fault of their own.

So, if there is revolution and civil war on a bigger scale than Kosovo, it will not be the people who have caused it but the governments own doing. I moved my mind away from that unpleasant thought.

Another coffee poured and I decided I would check out what was happening over on the other side of the pond. And what did I find? I was reading some clips from Jack London's Valley of the Moon over on Flanders Fields, when I came across some quotations at the end of his article.
"It is not people, but governments that bring down nations. But by allowing governments and leaders to act as agents in their name, people choose apathy and in
doing so, they choose not to survive." -Sultan Knish
Nice one Sultan Knish and nice one for bringing it to our attention Flanders. Well there were a lot of other quotes there that you will like but you can go see for yourself. But I have brought two over because, well because I wanted to.

"In those wretched countries where a man cannot call his tongue his own, he can scarce call anything his own...
Who ever would overthrow the liberty of a nation must begin by subduing the freedom of speech." - Benjamin Franklin

And the penultimate is by Abraham Lincoln who sometimes spoke great words but never upheld them.
"Any people anywhere, being inclined and having the power, have the right to rise up and shake off the existing government and form a new one that suits them better. This is a most valuable, most sacred right- a right which we hope and believe is to liberate the world. Nor is this right confined to cases in which the whole people of an existing government may choose to exercise it. Any portion of such people that can, may revolutionize and make their own, of so much territory as they inhabit." - Abraham Lincoln (1848)
Unless of course you are a Confederate wishing for succession, in which case forget it. And the last quote is by old Tricky Dicky himself. Richard Nixon.
"The nation's immediate problem is that while the common man fights America's wars, the intellectual elite sets its agenda. Today, whether the West lives or dies is in the hands of its new power elite: those who set the terms of public debate, who manipulate the symbols, who decide whether nations or leaders will be depicted on 100 million television sets as 'good' or 'bad.' This power elite sets the limits of the possible for Presidents and Congress. It molds the impressions that move the nation, or that mire it. - President Richard Nixon, The Real War - (1980)
Read a book once, well twice actually in which Nixon went to hell. Can't remember the name of it but I thought it quite funny at the time. It was around about the time of Watergate.
