"/The Cold War has been the most irritating thing to me personally. 
Throughout my life we`ve been in the grip of militarism and military

drain on the national energy. The real enemy is nationalism and 
patriotism/." ~Oliver Stone

"/Dreams of changing America into something that would end this 
oppression, or any of the horrors inflicted on humanity, are toxic 
illusions that keep people chained to the very system that's responsible 
for all this oppression./" ~ Carl Dix, 2013

"/I do not believe in a fate that falls on men however they act; but i 
do believe in a fate that falls on them unless they act./" ~GK Chesterton
