There are worse crimes than burning books. One of them is not reading them.”

A lot of that going on these days. Dark times are ahead my friend.It's been a few days so bumping this thread with a new quote.
The ultimate tragedy is not the oppression and cruelty by the bad people but the silence over that by the good people.
Martin Luther King Jr.

Indeed, although it's not a new phenomenon. I'm sure I posted these David Rockefeller 'quotes before.
“We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost 40 years......It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supernational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national autodetermination practiced in past centuries.”
“For more than a century ideological extremists at either end of the political spectrum have seized upon well-publicized incidents such as my encounter with Castro to attack the Rockefeller family for the inordinate influence they claim we wield over American political and economic institutions. Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as 'internationalists' and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure--one world, if you will. If that's the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.”

It's just gotten worse, now not only does the MSM suppress the truth, moderators of social media have also joined in suppressing points of view that differ from thier own. When the truth is silenced, evil thrives in the darkness.
Lets not dance around the truth. Corporations bought/ blackmailed crooked politicians and stole thier votes/power to become an unelected secret government that controls us all from the shadows. Without crooked spineless criminal politicians there would be no secret societies of rich elites running the world.Mr. Rockefeller is simply describing the total victory of Global Free Market Capitalism. It's not that there's a cabal of Illuminati secretly controlling the world. It's not even bankers and billionaires controlling the world. They don't have agency, not really. The Money or Capital itself rules the world. "The Spice Must Flow". Its only prerogative is growth. Anything that gets in the way of this must be defeated, either with propaganda or bullets.
He's paraphrasing the Ned Beatty speech from Network.
"You are an old man who thinks in terms of nations and peoples. There are no nations. There are no peoples. There are no Russians. There are no Arabs. There are no third worlds. There is no West. There is only one holistic system of systems, one vast and immane, interwoven, interacting, multivariate, multinational dominion of dollars."
"You get up on your little twenty-one inch screen and howl about "America" and "democracy". There is no America. There is no democracy. There is only IBM, and ITT, and AT&T, and DuPont, Dow, Union Carbide, and Exxon. Those are the nations of the world today."
Reminds me of a quote about integrity that i heard in the military:Perhaps my favorite journalist ever, I'm a huge fan of his observations and wit.
Morality is doing what is right, no matter what you are told. Religion is doing what you are told, no matter what is right.
