Stanley A McChrystal

Four star American Army general and entrenched neoliberal character actor, Stanley A McChrystal was a prime mover in the enrichment detail of the Military Industrial Complex during the Obama Presidency. As is the norm, his retirement from the military led to a series of appointments in business and heading up various fronts for deep state interests. Corporate boards, consulting, speaking fees: How U.S. generals thrived after Afghanistan is a useful article on Stanley McChrystal exemplifying how ex-generals sell their battlefield experience in other arenas, from corporations to Covid-19 response grifting.

Sun Tzu
There is no instance of a nation benefitting from prolonged warfare.

Sun Tzu
There is no instance of a country having benefited from prolonged warfare.

Socrates
False words are not only evil in themselves, but they infect the soul with evil.

Stendhal
The shepherd always tries to persuade the sheep that their interests and his own are the same.

Sophocles
Evil appears as good in the minds of those whom god leads to destruction.

Samuel Taylor Coleridge
The dwarf sees farther than the giant, when he has the giant’s shoulder to mount on.

Shane Gillis
Being racist isn’t a yes or no thing, [it’s] like being hungry. You’re not [hungry] right now, but a cheeseburger could cut you off in traffic and you could get hungry real quick… You didn’t even know you were hungry for that type of cheeseburger.

Sharyl Attkisson
Propaganda must facilitate the displacement of aggression by specifying the targets for hatred.

Sidney Hook
To silence criticism is to silence freedom.

Sindhu Biswal
Social media was initially created to communicate and then became a tool to propagate.

Sophie Scholl
Isn't it a riddle and awe-inspiring that things can be so beautiful, despite the horrors? I've seen something wondrous peering through my joy in the beautiful, a sense of its creator. Only people can be truly ugly, because they have free will to separate themselves from this song of praise. It often seems they may drown out this hymn with cannon thunder, curses, and blasphemy. But I have realised they will not succeed. And so I want to throw myself on the side of the victor.

Søren Kierkegaard (1)
Popular revolt against a ruthless, experienced modern government, which enjoys a monopoly over weapons and communications… is simply not a possibility in the modern age… People demand freedom of speech to make up for the freedom of thought which they avoid.

Søren Kierkegaard (2)
People demand freedom of speech to make up for the freedom of thought which they avoid.

Søren Kierkegaard (3)
There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.

Stalin (1)
It's not the people who vote that count, it's the people who count the votes.

Stalin (2)
If only one man dies of hunger, that is a tragedy. If millions die, that's only statistics.

Stalin (3)
The easiest way to gain control of a population is to carry out acts of terror. The public will clamour for such laws if their personal security is threatened.

Stanislaw Lem
When smashing monuments, save the pedestals - they always come in handy.

Stanley Baldwin
The papers conducted by Lord Rothermere and Lord Beaverbrook are not newspapers in the ordinary acceptance of the term. They are engines of propaganda for the constantly-changing policies, desires, personal wishes, and personal likes and dislikes of two men? What the proprietorship of those papers is aiming at is power, and power without responsibility the prerogative of the harlot throughout the ages.

Stanley Kubrick
Great nations have always acted like gangsters, and the small nations like prostitutes.

Stefan Molyneux
The whole purpose of propaganda is to make the obvious seem obscure, or offensive.

Stendhal (Marie Beyle)
The shepherd always tries to persuade the sheep that their interests and his own are the same.

Stephen King
The trust of the innocent is the liar's most useful tool.

Steve Bannon
Data is the ultimate commodity because it capitalises the market’s most valuable resource: us, the consumers.

Steve Jobs (1)
When you're young, you look at television and think, There's a conspiracy. The networks have conspired to dumb us down. But when you get a little older, you realise that's not true. The networks are in business to give people exactly what they want. That's a far more depressing thought. Conspiracy is optimistic! You can shoot the bastards! We can have a revolution! But the networks are really in business to give people what they want. It's the truth.

Steve Jobs
No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don't want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life's change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now the new is you, but someday not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it is quite true. Your time is limited

Steve Martin
I believe that sex is one of the most natural, wholesome things that money can buy.

Steven Magee
The corporate controlled government is the real enemy.
