“Deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed”

And their unjust powers?

WHAT DO YOU CONSENT TO?

 

from Bradley Manning

“If you had free reign over classified networks… and you saw incredible things, awful things… things that belonged in the public domain, and not on some server stored in a dark room in Washington DC… what would you do?”

“God knows what happens now.  Hopefully worldwide discussion, debates, and reforms… I want people to see the truth… because without information, you cannot make informed decisions as a public.”

 

from Bertolt Brecht

 

General, your tank is a powerful vehicle

It smashes down forests and crushes a hundred men.

But it has one defect:

It needs a driver.

 

General, your bomber is powerful.

It flies faster than a storm and carries more than an elephant.

But it has one defect:

It needs a mechanic.

 

General, man is very useful.

He can fly and he can kill.

But he has one defect:

He can think.
