Beefy words - of struggle, resistance, truth 

 

Babylon system is a vampire.

- Robert Nesta Marley, philisopher-poet, extremist

 

We prefer self-government with danger to servitude in tranquility.

- Kwame Nkrumah, PanAfricanist, extremist

 

First they came for the Communists,

and I didn't speak up,

because I wasn't a Comminist.

Then they came for the Jews,

and I didn't speak up,

because I wasn't a Jew.

Then they came for the Catholics,

and I didn't speak up,

because I was a Protestant.

Then they came for me,

and by that time there was no one left

to speak up for me.

- Martin Niemoller, Good Human Being, extremist

 

The price good men pay for indifference to public affairs is to be ruled by evil men.

- Plato, Philosopher, extremist

 

Opportunities multiply as they are seized.

- Sun Tzu, Philosopher, extremist

 

If the designing of the future and the proclamation of ready-made solutions for all time is not our affair, then we realise all the more clearly what we have to accomplish in the present - I am speaking of a ruthless criticism of everything existing, ruthless in two senses: The critism must not be afraid of its own conclusions, nor of conflict with the powers that be.

- Marx, philosopher, extremist

 

Men who are in earnest are not afraid of consequences.

-Marcus Mosiah Garvey, PanAfricanist, extremist

 

Politicians, on the evidence available to us, are interested  not in truth but in power and in the maintenance of that power. To maintain that power it is essential that people remain in ignorance, that they live in ignorance of the truth, even the truth of their own lives. What surrounds us therefore is a vast tapestry of lies, upon which we feed.

- Harold Pinter, writer, extremist

 

It is gratifying that America is now opening its eyes and I am not so wacky and out there by myself anymore. We are not the 'extreme' people anymore...Look at the polls, George Bush, you're the one who's at the extremes...Our kids are being killed and they're killing innocent Iraqis for lies. It's not brain surgery.

- Cindy Sheehan, anti-war mother and activist, extremist

 

The fact is: I knew it then and I don't have national security clearance. I knew there was no tie between Saddam Hussein and 9/11. We all knew the UN inspectors wanted to keep looking for weapons of mass destruction. Basically, the Democrat leadership was scared [of criticising Bush] and it's too bad, because it's come back to haunt them...The truth is, you still have to ask questions. We do have Syria, Iran and North Korea. We've got a lot of other issues and we don't want to go into these with an [ideological] agenda, and then fake whatever information we we need to back up our agenda again.

George Clooney, actor, extremist

 

As every single person here knows, the justification for the invasion of Iraq was that Saddam Hussein possessed a highly dangerous body of weapons of mass destruction, some of which could be fired in 45 minutes, bringing about appalling devastation. We were assured that was true. It was not true. We were told that Iraq had a relationship with al-Qaida and shared responsibility for the atrocity in New York of September 11 2001. We were assured that this was true. It was not true. We were told that Iraq threatened the security of the world. We were assured it was true. It was not true.

- Harold Pinter, writer, extremist

 

The [US and its allies'] use of torture is dishonourable. It corrupts and degrades the state which uses it and the legal system which accepts it...Many people in the United States have felt their country dishonoured by its use of torture outside the jurisdiction and its practice of extra-legal 'rendition' of suspects to countries where they would be tortured. The rejection of torture...has a special iconic importance as the touchstone of a humane and civilised legal system.

- Lord Hoffman, British Law Lord, extremist

 

Truth is on the side of the oppressed.

- Malcom X, freedom fighter, extremist

 

The profound hypocrisy and inherent barbarism of bourgeois civilisation lies unveiled before our eyes, turning from its home, where it assumes respectable forms, to the colonies, where it goes naked.

- Marx, philosopher, extremist

 

So many blessings flow from our unity, so many disasters must follow our continued disunity, that our failure today will not be attributed by posterity only to faulty reasoning and lack of courage, but to our CAPITULATION before the forces of neo-colonialism and imperialism.

- Kwame Nkrumah, PanAfricanist, extremist

 

In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.

- George Orwell, writer, extremist

 

If there is no struggle, there is no progress.

- Frederick Douglass, Abolutionist, extremist
