783.  All truth passes through three stages.  First, it is ridiculed.  Second, it is violently opposed.  Third, it is accepted as self-evident.  (Truth & Opposition)  Arthur Schopenhauer

 

 

1,194.  To be, or not to be – that is the question.

Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer

The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune.

Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,

And by opposing end them? – To die – to sleep –

No more; and by a sleep to say we end

The heart-ache, and the thousand natural shocks

That flesh is heir to; ’tis a consummation

Devoutly to be wished.  To die – to sleep –

To sleep! Perchance to dream.  Aye, there’s the rub;

For in that sleep of death what dreams may come,

When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,

Must give us pause.  There’s the respect

That makes calamity of so long life.

For who would bear the whips and scorns of time,

The oppressor’s wrong, the proud man’s contumely,

The pangs of despised love, the law’s delay,

The insolence of office...’  (Life’s Like That & Be & Question & Noble & Mind & Suffer & Fortune & Arms & Trouble & Opposition & Death & Pain & Suicide & Dream & Oppress & Law & Office & Fortunate)  William Shakespeare, Hamlet III i 56-73

 

 

5,450.  When men are brought face to face with their opponents, forced to listen and learn and mend their ideas, they cease to be children and savages and begin to live like civilised men.  Then only is freedom a reality, when men may voice their opinions because they must examine their opinions.  (Freedom & Opposition & Opinion)  Walter Lippmann

 

 

24,785.  I regret that by opposing Gowron I have brought disgrace to our family.  I do not apologise for what I have done.  I could not join Gowron and his war with Cardassia or the Federation; it would have been dishonourable.  (Star Trek & Opposition)  Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Sons of Mogh s4e15, Worf to Kern

 

 

27,135.  The message was clear: opposition of any kind would not be tolerated.  (Nazi & Germany & Opposition)  Third Reich: The Rise I, History Channel

 

 

35,987.  There’s not one organisation that represents the New World Order.  It’s a very very complex web.  And it even goes into those organisations that you might think are actually countering their agenda – it’s called Controlled Opposition.  (New World Order & Opposition)  Ian R Crane, New World Order lecture Liverpool 2008

 

 

49,352.  We must not confuse dissent with disloyalty.  When the loyal opposition dies, I think the soul of America dies with it.  (Dissent & Opposition)  Edward R Murrow

 

 

49,354.  To oppose the policies of a government does not mean you are against the country or the people that the government supposedly represents.  Such opposition should be called what it really is: democracy, or democratic dissent, or having a critical perspective about what your leaders are doing.  Either we have the right to democratic dissent and criticism of these policies or we all lie down and let the leader, the Fuhrer, do what is best, while we follow uncritically, and obey whatever he commands.  That's just what the Germans did with Hitler, and look where it got them.  (Dissent & Opposition & Criticism & Demonstration)  Michael Parenti

 

 

35,812.  Well, we know what they want.  They want more for themselves and less for everybody else.  But I’ll tell you what they don’t want.  They don’t want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking.  They don’t want well-informed well-educated people capable of critical thinking.  They’re not interested in that ... They don’t want people who are smart enough to sit around the kitchen table and figure out how badly they’re getting fucked by a system that threw them overboard thirty fucking years ago.  They don’t want that.  Do you know what they want?  They want obedient workers.  Obedient workers.  People who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork, and just dumb enough to passively accept all these increasingly shittier jobs with the lower pay, the longer hours, the reduced benefits, the end of overtime and the vanishing pension that disappears the minute you go to collect it.  And now they’re coming for your social security money.  They want your fucking retirement money.  They want it back so they can give it to their criminal friends on Wall Street.  And do you know something – they’ll get it.  They’ll get it all from you sooner or later ’cause they own this fucking place.  It’s a big club.  And you ain’t in it!  You and I are not in the big club!  By the way, it’s the same big club they use to beat you over the head with all day long when they tell you what to believe ... what to think and what to buy.  The table is tilted, folks.  The game is rigged.  And nobody seems to notice.  Nobody seems to care.  Good honest hard-working people ... continue – and these are people of modest means - who continue to elect these rich cocksuckers who don’t give a fuck about them.  They don’t give a fuck about you.  They don’t give a fuck about you.  They don’t care about you.  At all.  At all.  At all.  (Dissent & Criticism & Control & Capitalism & Work & Solidarity & Industrial Action & Trade Union & United States of America & New World Order & Club & Money & Social Security & Class & Working Class & Rule & Oppression & Opposition & Equality & Rights)  George Carlin, Who Really Controls America

 

 

49,384.  Mere sparks can ignite a popular movement that may seem dormant.  (Protest & Dissent & Opposition & Solidarity & Revolution)   Professor Noam Chomsky

 

 

49,420.  In the late Fifties and early Sixties, opposition to state terror and aggression and torture and so on was zero.  That was a horrible time: the massive Kennedy terror operation against Cuba, the first attacks on Vietnam in 1962, the imposition of national security states in South America.  Noam Chomsky

 

 

49,421.  You offer an additional reason for your opposition: things would seem turned upside down.  This would be a welcome change, for it would be the end of mankind if the worst situations were unalterable.  John Milton

 

 

49,357.  Never be afraid to raise your voice for honesty and truth and compassion against injustice and lying and greed.  If people all over the world ... would do this, it would change the earth.  (Dissent & Criticism & Resistance & Protest & Opposition)  William Faulkner

 

 

49,359.  The duty of youth is to challenge corruption.  (Dissent & Opposition & Rebellion & Resistance & Corruption & Youth)  Kurt Cobain

 

 

49,360.  If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor.  (Dissent & Injustice & Oppression & Opposition & Protest)  Desmond Tutu

 

 

49,388.  We must always take sides.  Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim.  Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.  (Protest & Dissent & Opinion & Silence & Opposition)  Elie Wiesel

 

 

49,413.  The best way to control the opposition is to lead it ourselves.  Vladimir Lenin

 

 

49,414.  Making noise is an effective means of opposition.  Joseph Goebbels

 

 

49,415.  For it must needs be, that there is an opposition in all things.  If not so, my first-born in the wilderness, righteousness could not be brought to pass, neither wickedness, neither holiness nor misery, neither good nor bad.  Wherefore, all things must needs be a compound in one; wherefore, if it should be one body it must needs remain as dead, having no life neither death, nor corruption nor incorruption, happiness nor misery, neither sense nor insensibility.  Book of Mormon II Nephi 2:11

 

 

49,416.  Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.  Albert Einstein
