91,921.  Orwell’s 1984 convinced me, rightly or wrongly, that Marxism was only a quantum leap away from tyranny.  By contrast, Huxley’s Brave New World suggested that the totalitarian systems of the future might be subservient and ingratiating.  (Tyranny & Oppression & Totalitarianism & Big Brother)  J G Ballard

 

 

86,643.  Resistance to tyranny is man’s highest ideal.  (Resistance & Tyranny)  Emma Goldman

 

 

27.  There can be but little liberty on earth while men worship a tyrant in heaven.  (God & Tyranny & Liberty)  Robert G Ingersoll

 

 

89,651.  ‘We did it to ourselves.  And I learnt from it that I would never ever again do the bidding of a tyrant.’  (Scientology & Cults & Tyranny)  Scientology: Going Clear: The Prison of Belief *****  

 

 

268.  It is the wish to be a slave.  It is the desire that there be an unalterable unchallengeable tyrannical authority who can convict you of thought crime while you are asleep.  Who can subject you – who must indeed subject you – to a total surveillance ... A celestial North Korea.  Who wants this to be true?  Who but a slave desires such a ghastly fate? ... At least you can fucking die and leave North Korea.  (God & Slave & Tyranny & Surveillance & North Korea)  Christopher Hitchens 

 

 

108,743.  Most of the tyrannies under which humans have laboured in the past and continue to labour under in the present have in their essence been theocratic.  (Tyranny & Theology)  Christopher Hitchens  

 

 

338.  Long time men lay oppressed to slavish fear.  Religion’s tyranny did domineer.  (Religion & Oppression & Tyranny)  Lucretius, Ode to Epicurus

 

 

422.  And all the plagues with which mankind are curst,

Ecclesiastic tyranny’s the worst.  (Religion & Plague & Tyranny)  Daniel Defoe 1660-1731, The True-Born Englishman

 

 

51,566.  Nature has left this tincture in the blood,

That all men would be tyrants if they could.  Daniel Defoe 1660-1731, The Complete English Tradesman 1725, The History of the Kentish Petition

 

 

424.  The land had once enfranchised herself from this impertinent yoke of prelaty, under whose inquisitorious and tyrannical duncery no free and splendid wit can flourish.  (Religion & Tyranny)  John Milton, The Reason of Church Government 1642

 

 

2,328.  He that rebels against reason is a real rebel, but he that in defence of reason rebels against tyranny has a better title to Defender of the Faith, than George the Third.  (Reason & Rebel & Tyranny & Faith)  Thomas Paine 

 

 

49,797.  These are the times that try men’s souls.  The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman.  Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.  What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value.  Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as freedom should not be highly rated.  (United States of America & Tyranny & Freedom)  Thomas Paine, The American Crisis 1776

 

 

49,816.  Despotic government supports itself by abject civilization, in which debasement of the human mind, and wretchedness in the mass of the people, are the chief criterions.  Such governments consider man merely as an animal; that the exercise of intellectual faculty is not his privilege; that he has nothing to do with the laws but to obey them; and they politically depend more upon breaking the spirit of the people by poverty, than they fear enraging it by desperation.  (Democracy & Tyranny & Totalitarianism & Government)  Thomas Paine, First Principles of Government 1795

 

 

4,477.  When the people fear the government, there is tyranny.  When the government fears the people, there is liberty.  (People & Government & Tyranny & Liberty)  Thomas Jefferson

 

 

49,431.  Rebellion to tyrants is obedience to God.  (Rebellion & Tyranny)  Thomas Jefferson motto

 

 

91,906.  I have sworn upon the alter of God eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of men.  Thomas Jefferson  

 

 

91,919.  Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms of government those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny.  (Tyranny & Power & Government)  Thomas Jefferson

 

 

91,922.  Enlighten the people generally, and tyranny and oppressions of body and mind will vanish like evil spirits at the dawn of day.  (Solidarity & Tyranny & Oppression)  Thomas Jefferson

 

 

78,640.  What … can be more shameless than for society to make an example of those whom she has goaded to the breach of order, instead of amending her own institutions which, by straining order into tyranny, produced the mischief?  (Law & Tyranny)  William Godwin 1756-1836, English philosopher & novelist & husband of Mary Wollstonecraft

 

 

4,641.  From the tyranny of man, I firmly believe, the greater number of female follies proceed.  (Woman & Man & Tyranny & Feminism)  Mary Wollstonecraft, A Vindication of the Rights of Women 

 

 

4,957.  The day may come when the rest of the animal creation may acquire those rights which never could have been withholden from them but by the hand of tyranny.  (Right & Tyranny)  Jeremy Bentham 

 

 

63,317.  Tyranny and anarchy are never far apart.  (Anarchy & Tyranny)  Jeremy Bentham

 

 

5,010.  The history of these tyrannies, however, tells us something very different.  There is a pattern to them which reflects the central characteristic of the world we live in: that it is run by a small class for profit; and the source of that profit is the workers who produce the wealth.  The class on top much prefers to make its profits without any nastiness from the masses it exploits.  The rulers prefer to operate where the people choose their governments, and where everyone in society is subject to the rule of law.  If people vote for their government, and are protected by the rule of law, they are much less likely to complain about their exploitation.  Hence the ‘norm’ which seems to emerge from the history of the western democracies – a norm of elected governments and a set of laws which at any rate pretend to apply equally to everyone.  (Equality & Tyranny & Capitalism & Socialism)  Paul Foot: No Time to Make Up

 

 

49,615.  Russia was not a socialist society at all.  It was a state-capitalist society presided over by a tyranny every bit as savage as any stock exchange-based capitalist tyranny anywhere else in the world.  (Socialism & Russia & Soviet Union & Tyranny)  Paul Foot, The Case For Socialism ch2

 

 

107,992.  The government has a defect: it’s potentially democratic.  Corporations have no defect: they’re pure tyrannies.  So therefore you want to keep corporations invisible and focus all anger on the government.  (Fascism & Government & Corporation & Tyranny)  Noam Chomsky  

 

 

5,385.  You see these dictators on their pedestals, surrounded by the bayonets of their soldiers and the truncheons of their police ... yet in their hearts there is unspoken fear.  They are afraid of words and thoughts: words spoken abroad, thoughts stirring at home – all the more powerful because forbidden – terrify them.  A little mouse of thought appears in the room, and even the mightiest potentates are thrown into panic.  (Civil Liberties & Dictatorship & Tyranny & Totalitarianism)  Winston Churchill, Blood, Sweat and Tears 

 

 

5,396.  Small tyrants, threatened by big,
sincerely believe
they love liberty.  (Civil Liberties & Liberty & Tyranny & Despotism)  W H Auden 

 

 

5,461.  So long as the people do not care to exercise their freedom, those who wish to tyrannise will do so; for tyrants are active and ardent, and will devote themselves in the name of any number of gods, religious or otherwise, to put shackles on sleeping men.  (Freedom & Tyranny & Despot & Gods & Religion)  Voltaire

 

 

38,847.  The best government is a benevolent tyranny tempered by an occasional assassination.  (Government & Tyranny & Assassination)  Voltaire

 

 

7,451.  Withholding information is the essence of tyranny.  Control of the flow of information is the tool of the dictatorship.  (Information & Tyranny & Dictatorship)  Bruce Coville

 

 

7,476.  Knowledge is power.  Information is power.  The secreting or hoarding of knowledge or information may be an act of tyranny camouflaged as humility.  (Information & Knowledge & Power & Tyranny)  Robin Morgan
