It is a characteristic of any decaying civilization that the great masses of the people are unaware of the tragedy. Humanity in a crisis is generally insensitive to the gravity of the times in which it lives. Men do not want to believe their own times are wicked, partly because they have no standard outside of themselves by which to measure their times. If there is no fixed concept of justice, how shall men know it is violated? Only those who live by faith really know what is happening in the world; the great masses without faith are unconscious of the destructive processes going on, because they have lost the vision of the heights from which they have fallen.

Attributed to Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen

A society that puts equality—in the sense of equality of outcome—ahead of freedom will end up with neither equality nor freedom.  The use of force to achieve equality will destroy freedom, and the force, introduced for good purposes, will end up in the hands of people who use it to promote their own interests.

Milton and Rose Friedman
in Free to Choose: A Personal Statement
(Milton Friedman won the 1976 Nobel Prize for Economics)

It is true that liberty is precious — so precious that it must be rationed.

— Lenin

Who falls asleep in a democracy will wake up in a dictatorship.

— Otto Gritschneder,
(when asked why he wants to publicize
the system of terror in German military justice under the Nazis)

Love is an ideal thing, marriage a real thing; a confusion of the real with the ideal never goes unpunished.

— Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Plato, in Republic, has Socrates offer this advice to philosopher kings:

Take all the children from their parents and rid the city of adults.

Who owns the youths controls the future.

— Slogan used by Napoleon and also by
the founders of the Wandervogel
("bird of passage", the enormously popular youth movement that began
in about 1880 in Germany and produced many
of the prominent (and often homosexual) Nazi leaders)

Give me your four-year-olds, and within one generation I will build a socialist state.

— Lenin

Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.

— Lenin

[The State] must set race in the center of all life. It must take care to keep it pure. It must declare the child to be the most precious treasure of the people. It must  see to it that only the healthy beget children....

— Hitler, in Mein Kampf

"President Obama is committed to helping states develop seamless, comprehensive, and coordinated 'Zero to Five' systems to improve developmental outcomes and early learning for all children....it will be the goal of this Administration to ensure that every child has access to a complete and competitive education -- from the day they are born to the day they begin a career."

First they came for the fathers, then for the mothers, and now for both parents in intact families.  In the end all children will be in the care, custody and control of the State.

— Walter H. Schneider

Make sure that when you get an erection you don't lose your mind.  Always think of the consequences:

Is she someone you would want to face across the breakfast table ten years down the road?

Is she the woman who'll be the best possible mother to your children?

Whether you'll still be together ten years from now or not, you are trusting her with most of what you've got, with half of your genes, with more than half of all you'll be able to earn for the rest of your life, and with your and your children's physical and emotional health.

Will she be worthy of all of that?

— Ruth Schneider

Idiocy is a gift from the gods – one should not punish it.

— German adage

Nothing is as terrible to see as ignorance in action.

— Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Moral indignation is a technique used to endow the idiot with dignity.

— Marshall McLuhan
Quoted by Philip Marchand, MM's biographer, in
Marshall McLuhan: The Medium And the Messenger

Mothers are fonder than fathers of their children because they are more certain they are their own.


But what difference does it make whether women rule, or the rulers are ruled by women? The result is the same.

— Aristotle (Politics)

Love is like an onion.
You taste it with delight,
And when it is all gone,
You wonder what made you bite.

— (One of Ruth Schneider's favorites; author unknown)

If we have gotten to the point in our desperate culture in which we feel obligated to kill children, regardless of why or of what color, then we do not deserve to survive and probably won't.

— William Faulkner

One of the paradoxes of management is this: Most employees usually are happier and more comfortable in a well-structured environment than in one that operates with disorder and permissiveness.

Telephony, Feb. 6, 1978, p. 61 (author unknown)

I am most anxious to enlist everyone who can speak or write to join in checking this mad, wicked folly of 'Women's Rights,' with all its attendant horrors, on which her poor feeble sex is bent, forgetting every sense of womanly feelings and propriety. Feminists ought to get a good whipping. Were woman to 'unsex' themselves by claiming equality with men, they would become the most hateful, heathen and disgusting of beings and would surely perish without male protection.

— Queen Victoria, March, 1870

Feminism is not about giving women freedom to choose; it is about taking away choices of which feminists disapprove. And one choice they disapprove is participation in a conventional family.

Robert H. Bork
Slouching Towards Gomorrah : Modern Liberalism and American Decline
p. 204

The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of Conservatives is to prevent mistakes from being corrected. Even when the revolutionist might himself repent of his revolution, the traditionalist is already defending it as part of his tradition. Thus we have two great types -- the advanced person who rushes us into ruin, and the retrospective person who admires the ruins.

— G.K. (Gilbert Keith) Chesterton (1874-1936),
British essayist, critic, poet, and novelist;
Source: Illustrated London News, 1924

Not merely the validity of experience, but the very existence of external reality was tacitly denied by their philosophy. The heresy of heresies was common sense.

— George Orwell, 1984

The hungry sheep look up, and are not fed,
But swoln with wind, and the rank mist they draw,
Rot inwardly, and foul contagion spread.

— Milton: "Lycidias"
