‘‘It is getting increasingly... difficult to... consider the works of the progressives while maintaining the belief that the intentions of most people are good.  People with good intentions usually don’t have to lie so much.’’

‘‘Worse than the effects of Obamacare - which may or may not be permanent, but which will certainly be severe - is the effect on the citizenry of watching the nations leaders and legislators come before the public and lie, day after day.  Not picayune lies, but baldfaced, insulting, comprehensive and utterly immoral lies.  It’s as if they haven’t even the dignity to pretend they are addressing a concerned or informed citizenry - they simply reject the idea of truth or honesty, then lie about their own lies.  It is a disgusting and dishonorable display of complete mendacity, unleavened even by any thought that these charlatans might be lying in the service of their country.  They are small people, who think - or perhaps hope - that the citizens are as small as they are.’’

‘‘If you listen to artists, writers, academics and journalists, you would think that thousands of them operate in a radical underground.  They say the right things.  They ‘speak truth to power’, ‘transgress boundaries’, and all the rest of it.  But you will have noticed that they are careful only to challenge religions that won’t hurt them (Christianity) and governments that won’t arrest them (democracies).’’ - Nick Cohen
