Neal Stephenson
“All that Democrat/Republican stuff is bullshit," he said. "And as far as liberal versus conservative, well, people are very promiscuous in the way the use those words. They don't really mean anything. Within those two camps there are very wide divisions. And between those two camps, there is a lot more overlap than you think. None of that bullshit really matters. The only thing that matters is values.”
Neal Stephenson, Interface

Francis Stevens
“They curtailed the education of the people as needless and too expensive. When the people complained, they placated them by abolishing all grades above the primary and turning the schools into dance halls and free moving-picture theaters.”
Francis Stevens, The Heads of Cerberus

“While creating products that benefit consumers explicitly will no doubt improve the reputation of genetically engineered foods, consumers must also be able to evaluate the risk. This means differentiating facts from the cacophony of lies and distorted half truths about GMOs.”
Beth Shapiro, Life as We Made It: How 50,000 Years of Human Innovation Refined—and Redefined—Nature

Anne Applebaum
“Democracy itself has always been loud and raucous, but when its rules are followed, it eventually creates consensus. The modern debate does not. Instead, it inspires in some people the desire to forcibly silence the rest.”
Anne Applebaum, Twilight of Democracy: The Seductive Lure of Authoritarianism

John             Lewis
“Malcolm (X) talked about the need to shift our focus from race to class, both among one another and between ourselves and the white community. He said he believed that was the root of our problems, not just in America, but all over the world. Malcolm was saying, in effect, that it is a struggle for the poor -- for those who have been left out and left behind -- and that it transcends race.”
John Lewis, March: Book Three
