"....a conspiracy theory. It's just one of the devices
that's used in the American indoctrination system to
prevent scrutiny of power. If somebody does try to
provide a critical analysis of American
institutions, one of the ways in which you try to
suppress this is to say, well, it's a devil theory or

"...take a critical look at our own political system
and measure it not by its undoubted ability to hold
elections but by its ability to serve democratic ends.
It will be argued that whether a political system is
democratic or not depends not only on its procedures
but on the substantive outputs -- that is, the actual
material benefits and costs of policy and the kind of
social justice or injustice it propagates.
By this view, a government that pursues policies that
by design or neglect are so inequitable as to deny
people the very conditions of life is not democratic
no matter how many elections it holds." -

"It is not corruption that brings down a society: it

"One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If
we've been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject
any evidence of the bamboozle. We're no longer
interested in finding out the truth. The
bamboozle has captured us. It is simply too painful to
acknowledge -- even to ourselves -- that we've been so
credulous." Carl Sagan
