imp3ratrix: (Come not between a dragon and his wrath)
I have no special regard for Satan; but, I can at least claim that I have no prejudice against him. It may even be that I lean a little his way, on account of his not having a fair show. All religions issue bibles against him, and say the most injurious things about him, but we never hear his side. We have none but the evidence for the prosecution, and yet we have rendered the verdict. To my mind, this is irregular. It is un-English, it is un-American; it is French.

imp3ratrix: (Life is like playing a violin)
The world is so empty if one thinks only of mountains, rivers, and cities; but to know someone here and there who thinks and feels with us, and though distant, is close to us in spirit, this makes the earth for us an inhabited garden.

O fair Messalina! What depravity claims your name. )

imp3ratrix: (Come not between a dragon and his wrath)
Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power.



~ George Orwell

Nineteen Eighty-Four; Part 3, Chapter 3
imp3ratrix: (Vain wisdom all and false philosophy)
I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.



~ Thomas Jefferson

Letter to Secretary of the Treasury Albert Gallatin; 1802



END THE FED.
imp3ratrix: (Come not between a dragon and his wrath)
Where there is no common power, there is no law, where no law, no injustice. Force, and fraud, are in war the cardinal virtues.
