Overflight, 28

“To ignore the evidence, and hope that it cannot be true, is more an evidence of mental illness.”
William Blase, as quoted in zhibit.org/diemythographer

“People avoid the truth because the first bit of truth uttered and lived would draw more truth into action and so on indefinitely, and this would rip most people right off the customary tracks of their lives. But people, basically, know what is true and what is not, even if they so often render help to the lie. They support the lie because the lie has become a crutch without which life would not be possible. Therefore, in common human intercourse, the truth, and not the lie, is suspected as being phony.”
Wilhelm Reich, The Murder of Christ, as quoted in zhibit.org/diemythographer

“Rarely do we find men who willingly engage in hard, solid thinking. There is an almost universal quest for easy answers and half−baked solutions. Nothing pains some people more than having to think.”
Martin Luther King, Strength to Love, as quoted in zhibit.org/diemythographer

“Experience has prevent [proven, author's note] that the simplest method of securing a silent weapon and gaining control of the public is to keep the public undisciplined and ignorant of the basic system principles on the one hand, while keeping them confused, disorganized, and distracted with matters of no real importance on the other hand.”
