teach the American people to hate, so we will let the Establishment spend any

as the Super Bowl in diverting people's attention from unpleasant truths."

-- General Douglas MacArthur, 1957
"Why of course the people don't want war... That is understood. But after all it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship ...Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger."
- Hitler's right-hand man, Hermann Goering
