Frank Herbert
“Once men turned their thinking over to machines in the hope that this would set them free. But that only permitted other men with machines to enslave them.”
Frank Herbert, Dune

James MacGregor Burns
“Why then this failure of the leaders? It was due in part to their absolute conviction that they were right. This is a habit of political animals around the world. But the Jacobins believed that only they understood the general will of the French people, hence they were morally right.

James MacGregor Burns

Frank Herbert
“How ignorant a man can become on a diet of managed history.”
Frank Herbert, The Eyes of Heisenberg
