"People are tired of liberty.

They have had a surfeit of it.

Liberty is no longer a chaste and austere virgin...

Today’s youth are moved by other slogans...

Order, Hierarchy, Discipline."

-- Benito Mussolini

(1883-1945), Italian dictator during WW2

"The Greeks... labored under the delusion that their democracy was a guarantee of peace and plenty, not realizing that unrestrained majority rule always destroys freedom, puts the minority at the mercy of the mob, and works at cross-purposes to the effective use of human energy and individual initiative."

-- Henry Grady Weaver

"... when the struggle seems to be drifting definitely towards a world social

democracy, there may still be very great delays and disappointments before it

becomes an efficient and beneficent world system. Countless people ... will

hate the new world order ... and will die protesting against it. When we

attempt to evaluate its promise, we have to bear in mind the distress of a

generation or so of malcontents, many of them quite gallant and

graceful-looking people."

-- H. G. Wells
