"The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth becomes the greatest enemy of the State."  -- Dr. Joseph Goebbels, Nazi Propaganda Minister
 
"To be innocent in America is to permit the continued theft of hundreds of billions of dollars from the state by Wall Street swindlers and speculators. To be innocent in America is to stand by as insurance and pharmaceutical companies, in the name of profit, condemn ill people, including children, to die. To be innocent in America is refusing to resist wars in Iraq and Afghanistan that are not only illegal under international law but responsible for the murder of hundreds of thousands of people. This is the odd age we live in. Innocence is complicity."  -  Chris Hedges

"The aim of public education is not to spread enlightenment at all; it is simply to reduce as many individuals as possible to the same safe level, to breed and train a standardized citizenry, to down dissent and originality. That is its aim in the United States, whatever the pretensions of politicians, pedagogues, and other such mountebanks, and that is its aim everywhere else....Their purpose, in brief, is to make docile and patriotic citizens, to pile up majorities, and to make John Doe and Richard Doe as nearly alike, in their everyday reactions and ways of thinking, as possible." -- H. L. Mencken - (1880-1956) American Journalist, Editor, Essayist, Linguist, Lexicographer, and Critic

November Fundraiser Update

Thank you.

Our appeal began on 17, November with publication of an open letter to the ICH community, from a number of well respected journalists.  The response has been unprecedented. More people made a contribution in a 24 hour period than we would normally receive after running our appeal for 5 day.

Help us  to reach our budget within the next 24 hours rather, than the 10 grueling days it took to raise just 80% of our budget last month.

Note regarding comments

You spoke and we listened. It is no longer necessary for ICH readers to register before placing a comment. Please read further about comment changes. Continued here
