Joseph Joubert

In a striking admission, George W. Bush said the other day: "We actually misnamed the war on terror. It ought to be [called] the struggle against ideological extremists who do not believe in free societies and who happen to use terror as a weapon to try to shake the conscience of the free world.

George W. Bush

The 43rd President of the United States from 2001 to 2009 and the 46th Governor of Texas from 1995 to 2000.

Bush is the eldest son of George H. W. Bush (the 41st President) and Barbara Bush; he is one of only two American presidents to be the son of a preceding president.[4] After graduating from Yale University in 1968, and Harvard Business School in 1975, Bush worked in his family's oil businesses. He married Laura Welch in 1977 and unsuccessfully ran for the United States House of Representatives shortly thereafter. He later co-owned the Texas Rangers baseball team before defeating Ann Richards in the 1994 Texas gubernatorial election. In a close and controversial election, Bush was elected President in 2000 as the Republican candidate, receiving a majority of the electoral votes while losing the popular vote to then-Vice President Al Gore.

Polls and magazine articles have characterized him as one of if not THE worst president in US history.

Friedrich Nietzsche

Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche (October 15, 1844- August 25, 1900) was a 19th- century German philosopher and classical philologist. He wrote critical texts on religion, morality, contemporary culture, philosophy and science, using a distinctive German-language style and displaying a fondness for metaphor, irony and aphorism.

Nietzsche's influence remains substantial within and beyond philosophy, notably in existentialism and postmodernism. His style and radical questioning of the value and objectivity of truth have resulted in much commentary and interpretation, mostly in the continental tradition, and to a lesser extent in analytic philosophy.

It is my certain conviction that no man loses his freedom except through his own weakness.

Ladies and Gentlemen of the Jury, my name is William Schneiderman. I am one of the defendants in this trial, and I am here representing myself.

It was February, 1952. How vividly the scene comes back to mind: the packed federal courthouse in Los Angeles, the vigilant marshals, the intent jury, the grim-faced judge flanked on one side by the special prosecutor from Washington, and on the other by the fifteen defendants and their attorneys; as ...

Steve Biko

Liberty has never come from the government. Liberty has always come from the subjects of it. The history of liberty is a history of resistance, The history

Since the general civilization of mankind, I believe there are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations.

African American Slave Song

... the ground of liberty is gained by inches...we must be contented to secure what we can get, from time to time, and eternally press forward for what is yet to get. It takes time to persuade men to do even what is for their own good.
