An education that teaches us not how but what to think is an education that calls for a governing class of pastors and masters. But the very idea of leading somebody is anti-social and anti-spiritual. To the man who exercises it, leadership brings gratification of the craving for power. To those who are led, it brings the gratification of the desire for certainty and security.

But, surely, it is not the voice of reality. For the voice of reality must come to you. It cannot be appealed to, you cannot pray to it. You cannot entice it into your little cage by placating it, by suppressing yourself or emulating others. That which you ask for you get. But it is not the truth. If you want, and if you petition, you will receive, but you will pay for it in the end.

Aldous Huxley

Observing and Then Explaining

No one can see the real world if he has to instantly explain what he observes. Science is based on observing and them explaining. Wordism insists that all things be explained within the "Great Book" before it can be observed.

Robert Whitaker


Most men only care for science so far as they get a living by it, but they will worship error when it affords them a subsistence.

Johann Goethe


Donít you see that the whole aim of Newspeak is to narrow the range of thought? Has it ever occurred to you, Winston, that by the year 2050, at the very latest, not a single human being will be alive who could understand such a conversation as we are having now?

The whole climate of thought will be different. In fact, there will be no thought, as we understand it now. Orthodoxy means not thinking ó not needing to think. Orthodoxy is unconsciousness.

Syme in George Orwellís 1984


Complexity blurs the obvious.

Alan B


Refutation is no necessay part of argument.
