W Somerset Maugham
It is dangerous to let the public behind the scenes. They are easily disillusioned and then they are angry with you, for it was the illusion they loved.

W Somerset Maugham (1)
Excess on occasion is exhilarating. It prevents moderation from acquiring the deadening effect of a habit.

W. Lance Bennett
Perhaps the most obvious political effect of controlled news is the advantage it gives powerful people in getting their issues on the political agenda and defining those issues in ways likely to influence their resolution.

Walter Bagehot (1)
Persecution in intellectual countries produces a superficial conformity, but also underneath an intense, incessant, implacable doubt.

Walter Bagehot (2)
Life is a school of probability.

Walter Lippmann
The news of the days it reaches the newspaper office is an incredible medley of fact, propaganda, rumour, suspicion, clues, hopes, and fears, and the task of selecting and ordering that news is one of the truly sacred and priestly offices in a democracy. For the newspaper is in all literalness the bible of democracy, the book out of which a people determines its conduct.

Ward Churchill
The American people are free to do exactly what they are told.

Wendell Phillips
No free people can lose their liberties while they are jealous of liberty. But the liberties of the freest people are in danger when they set up symbols of liberty as fetishes, worshipping the symbol instead of the principle it represents.

Wilhelm Reich
When social cooperation is disrupted, state power is always strengthened.

William Blum
Propaganda is to a democracy what violence is to a dictatorship.

William Casey [CIA Director] (1)
We'll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false.

William Colby
The Central Intelligence Agency owns everyone of any significance in the major media.

William Faulkner
Never be afraid to raise your voice for honesty and truth and compassion against injustice and lying and greed. If people all over the world would do this, it would change the earth.

William Gibson
The future is always here already. It's just not evenly distributed yet.

William S Burroughs
Why do I always parody? Neither in life nor in writing can I achieve complete sincerity.

William Shakespeare
The love of wicked men converts to fear; That fear to hate, and hate turns one or both To worthy danger and deserved death.

William Shakespeare (2)
There are those contentious and disorderly people, who engage in useless speculation and deceptive talk, and focus on divisive points of dispute... All things are good to the pure of heart, but to these corrupt and disbelieving controversialists nothing can be good, since both their minds and and their hearts are corrupted. They may say that they know God, but by their actions they deny Him, being corrupt and disobedient, and of no use for any good purpose. (Titus 1:10, 15-16)

William Wilberforce
You may choose to look the other way, but you can never say again that you did not know.

Winston Churchill (1)
After a time, civil servants tend to become no longer servants and no longer civil.

Winston Churchill (2)
In wartime, truth is so precious that she should always be attended by a bodyguard of lies.

Winston Churchill (3)
This report, by its very length, defends itself against the risk of being read.

Winston Churchill (4)
Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing had happened.

Winston Churchill (5)
Everyone is in favour of free speech. Hardly a day passes without its being extolled, but some people's idea of it is that they are free to say what they like, but if anyone else says anything back, that is an outrage.

Winston Churchill (6)
A good speech should be like a woman's skirt: long enough to cover the subject and short enough to create interest.

Winston Churchill (7)
Life is fraught with opportunities to keep your mouth shut.

Woodrow Wilson
To fight, you must be brutal and ruthless, and the spirit of ruthless brutality will enter into the very fibre of national life.

Wyndham Lewis (1)
All orthodox opinion – that is, today, revolutionary opinion either of the pure or impure variety – is anti-man.
