"There also exists another alliance -- at first glance a strange one, a

surprising one -- but if you think about it, in fact, one which is well

grounded and easy to understand. This is the alliance between our Communist

leaders and your capitalists. This alliance is not new. ... We observe

continuous and steady support by the businessmen of the West of the Soviet

Communist leaders."

-- Alexander Solzhenitsyn

"The only thing that permits us to acquiesce in an erroneous theory is

the lack of a better one, analogously, an injustice is tolerable

only when it is necessary to avoid an even greater injustice."

-- John Rawls

"It is suggested that the solution lies in the United Nations Security Council.

It is interesting to note that each solution it achieves invariably results

either in the country involved going communist or vast territories being turned

to communist-type socialism. The United Nations is the great Trojan horse

within our gates, and we can hope for absolutely no help from that quarter,

especially while it promotes and arranges finances, encouragement, and prestige

to dissenting groups involved in so-called liberation movements of terrorist

revolutionary groups."

"The planning of UN can be traced to the “secret steering committee”

established by Secretary [of State Cordell] Hull in January 1943. All of the

members of this secret committee, with the exception of Hull, a Tennessee

politician, were members of the Council on Foreign Relations. They saw Hull

regularly to plan, select, and guide the labors of the [state] Department’s

Advisory Committee. It was, in effect, the coordinating agency for all the

State Department’s postwar planning."
