“Freedom of speech is useless without freedom of thought. And I fear that the politics of protest is shutting out the process of thought, so necessary to rational discussion. We are faced with the Ten Commandments of Protest: Thou Shalt Not Allow Thy Opponent to Speak. Thou Shalt Not Set Forth a Program of Thine Own. Thou Shalt Not Trust Anybody Over Thirty. Thou Shalt Not Honor Thy Father or Thy Mother. Thou Shalt Not Heed the Lessons of History. Thou Shalt Not Write Anything Longer than a Slogan. Thou Shalt Not Present a Negotiable Demand. Thou Shalt Not Accept Any Establishment Idea. Thou Shalt Not Revere Any but Totalitarian Heroes. Thou Shalt Not Ask Forgiveness for Thy Transgressions, Rather Thou Shalt Demand Amnesty for Them.”—Spiro T. Agnew (via haereticum)
If Mr. Obama wins, his friends are gonna get more money. If Mr. Romney wins, his friends are gonna get more money. But you and I, and everybody [else] are gonna be worse off because the debt’s going to go higher, and the turmoil is gonna get worse.”
“[Both republicans and democrats] have gotten us into this situation. Look at the last 50 years of American history. Republicans, Democrats, Republicans, Democrats. … It’s not doing us any good. None of us are benefiting by what’s been going on in Washington.”
“I will vote the protest vote. I nearly always vote the protest vote. … If they keep sending us turkeys, and we keep voting for turkeys, they’ll send us more turkeys.
“I was on campus today (in Pakistan - yes, we have universities! Isn’t that crazy?! I know, right!) and I was inside one of our very large auditoriums where at least more than 300 hundred students were sitting for a lecture by a guest speaker today. Before the seminar began and while everyone was sitting in the auditorium - young men and women - a lecturer took the mic and casually asked, “Tou phir kia banay ga inn Amreeki siyasi intikhabaat ka? (Translation: So what’s going to happen in the US Elections?)” And I kid you not: Everyone in the auditorium laughed. Yes, they laughed. They laughed and shook their heads. These were students from the tribal areas (where Bush/Obama issued drone strikes), these were students from other provinces, students from all classes (academic and social), majoring in all sorts of subjects and they were laughing together. Then one girl stood up and everyone paid attention and she said: “Koi tabdeeli nahi aati. Aap fiqr na karain. (Nothing changes. Don’t worry.)” Try telling that to a zealous American voter today and they’ll try strangling you.”—Mehreen Kasana (via theamericanbear)
