“If you want to know who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize.”
– Voltaire (or maybe not, but it’s still a marvelous, and spot-on, bit of phrasing, whoever said it. Maybe Chesterton…).
(Found at World Around the Net, via Ace, today.)
“The savior who wants to turn men into angels is as much a hater of human nature as the totalitarian despot who wants to turn them into puppets.”
Yet, when they are one and the same person, they need to control information first. Making the journalist a totalitarian puppet is the act of absolute control which must precede all other totalitarian endeavors.
Therefore, there is no greater traitor to freedom than the corrupt journalist. He is the catalyst for totalitarian nightmares. For when he abandons his post in order to curry favor with the maker of angels, he descends into hell and takes humanity with him.
