Four great quotes from this morning’s ICH newsletter.

“For the great majority of mankind are satisfied with appearances, as though they were realities, and are often more influenced by the things that seem than by those that are.”:Niccolo Machiavelli– (1469-1527) Italian Statesman and Political Philosopher – Source: Discourses, 1513-1517


 The propaganda system allows the U.S. Ieadership to commit crimes without limit and with no suggestion of misbehavior or criminality; in fact, major war criminals like Henry Kissinger appear regularly on TV to comment on the crimes of the derivative butchers. ” –  Edward S. Herman, political economist and author
 Anyone who challenges the prevailing orthodoxy finds himself silenced with surprising effectiveness. ” – George Orwell, author of the book “1984”
