Diet Soap Podcast #42: A Virus Called Capitalism

January 28, 2010 12:32 AM PST

~There is no God and we are his prophets.~

-Cormac McCarthy-

'The nationalist not only does not disapprove of atrocities committed by his own side, but he has a remarkable capacity for not even hearing about them'.....'Every war when it comes, or before it comes, is represented not as a war but as an act of self-defense against a homicidal maniac.'.....'In times of universal deceit, telling the truth will be a revolutionary act.'.....'War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength.' George Orwell
