Emily Davison

Emily Wilding Davison (11-Oct-1872 to 8-Jun-1913) was an English suffragette who fought for votes for women in Britain in the early twentieth century. A member of the Women's Social and Political Union (WSPU) and a militant fighter for her cause, she was arrested on nine occasions, went on hunger strike seven times and was force-fed on forty-nine occasions. Davison joined the women's rights movement and soon became known in the organisation for her daring militant action; her tactics included breaking windows, throwing stones, setting fire to postboxes, planting bombs and, on three occasions, hiding overnight in the Palace of Westminster—including on the night of the 1911 census. Davison was a staunch feminist and passionate Christian, and considered that socialism was a moral and political force for good. Emily Davison died after being hit by King George V's horse Anmer at the 1913 Derby when she walked onto the track during the race.

Emmeline Pankhurst

Emmeline Pankhurst (15-Jul-1858 to 14-Jun-1928) was an English suffragette, proto-feminist and political activist. She is best remembered for organising the British suffragette movement and helping women win the right to vote. She was widely criticised at the time - as is always the case when establishment power is under threat - for her militant tactics, but her work is recognised as a crucial element in achieving women's suffrage in the United Kingdom and elsewhere.

Edmund Burke
Edmund Burke (12-Jan-1729 to 9-Jul-1797) was a Irish statesman, economist, and philosopher. Born in Dublin, Burke served as a member of parliament (MP) between 1766 and 1794 in the House of Commons of Great Britain with the Whig Party after moving to London in 1750. Burke was a proponent of underpinning virtues with manners in society and of the importance of religious institutions for the moral stability and good of the state.[3] These views were expressed in his A Vindication of Natural Society. He criticised the actions of the British government towards the American colonies, including its taxation policies. Burke also supported the rights of the colonists to resist metropolitan authority, although he opposed the attempt to achieve independence. He is remembered for his support for Catholic emancipation, the impeachment of Warren Hastings from the East India Company, and his staunch opposition to the French Revolution.

Euripedes
There are three classes of citizens. The first are the rich, who are indolent and yet always crave more. The second are the poor, who have nothing, are full of envy, hate the rich, and are easily led by demagogues. Between the two extremes lie those who make the state secure and uphold the laws.

Edmund Burke (1)
All that is necessary for evil to succeed is that good men do nothing.

Edward Bernays (1)"""

Edward Bernays (2)
Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country.

Edward Denison
Three percent exceeds 2 percent by 50 percent, not by 1 percent.

Edward Gibbon
Corruption, the most infallible symptom of constitutional liberty.

Edward Gibbon (1)
A nation of slaves is always prepared to applaud the clemency of their master who, in the abuse of absolute power, does not proceed to the last extremes of injustice and oppression.

Edward R Murrow
If none of us ever read a book that was 'dangerous' had a friend who was 'different or joined an organisation that advocated 'change' we would all be the kind of people Joe McCarthy wants.

Edward Snowden (1)
In terms of technological and communication progress in human history, the Internet is basically the equivalent of electronic telepathy. We can now communicate all the time through our little magic smartphones with people who are anywhere, all the time, constantly learning what they’re thinking, talking about, exchanging messages.

Edward Zehr
I wouldn't call it fascism exactly, but a political system nominally controlled by an irresponsible, dumbed down electorate who are manipulated by dishonest, cynical, controlled mass media that dispense the propaganda of a corrupt political establishment can hardly be described as democracy either.

Edwin Vieira
You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, and that's good enough.

Eric Hoffer
When people are free to do as they please, they usually imitate each other.

Eric Hoffer
Rudeness is the weak man's imitation of strength.

Eric Hoffer (1)
Propaganda ... serves more to justify ourselves than to convince others; and the more reason we have to feel guilty, the more fervent our propaganda.

Eric Schaub
Can we truly expect those who aim to exploit us to be trusted to educate us?

Erich Fromm
When Fascism came into power, most people were unprepared, both theoretically and practically. They were unable to believe that man could exhibit such propensities for evil, such lust for power, such disregard for the rights of the weak, or such yearning for submission. Only a few had been aware of the rumbling of the volcano preceding the outbreak.

Ernest Hemmingway
He did not care for the lying at first. He hated it. Then later he had come to like it. It was part of being an insider, but it was a very corrupting business.

Ernest Hemmingway
Happiness in intelligent people is the rarest thing I know.

Ernest Hemingway
It would be easy for us, if we do not learn to understand the world and appreciate the rights, privileges and duties of all other countries and peoples, to represent in our power the same danger to the world that Fascism did.

Ernst Zundel
For an event that was wholly created in the poisonous psychological warfare kitchens of the Second World War, run by the ministries of propaganda in many countries, not just by the British or the Americans, but also the Russians and undoubtedly the world Jewish organisations.
