Quote of the Day

Orville Schell, in an article entitled "Too Late for Empire" in The Nation, nails the essence of thought control under capitalism:
The problem has not been censorship but something very nearly censorship's opposite: the deafening noise of the official megaphone and its echoes--not the suppression of truth, still spoken and heard in a narrow circle, but a profusion of lies and half lies; not too little speech but too much. If you whisper something to your friend in the front row of a rock concert, you have not been censored, but neither will you be heard.
