It's only words: George Orwell and Thomas Paine

"We have now sunk to a depth at which the restatement of the obvious is the first duty of intelligent men."


"The nationalist not only does not disapprove of atrocities committed by his own side, but he has a remarkable capacity for not even hearing about them." George Orwell


"If a thief breaks into my house, burns and destroys my property, and kills or threatens to kill me, or those that are in it, and to "bind me in all cases whatsoever" to his absolute will, am I to suffer it?"

The American Crisis by Thomas Paine.
