The worst illiterate is the political illiterate, he doesn't hear, doesn't speak, nor participates in the political events. He doesn't know the cost of life, the price of the bean, of the fish, of the flour, of the rent, of the shoes and of the medicine, all depends on political decisions. The political illiterate is so stupid that he is proud and swells his chest saying that he hates politics. The imbecile doesn't know that, from his political ignorance is born the prostitute, the abandoned child, and the worst thieves of all, the bad politician, corrupted and flunky of the national and multinational companies. ~ Bertolt Brecht
Political Ignorance quotes by Bertolt Brecht
There is no easy solution to the problem of political ignorance. But we can significantly mitigate it by making more of our decisions by "voting with our feet" and fewer at the ballot box. Two types of foot voting have important informational advantages over ballot box voting. The first is when we vote with our feet in the private sector, by choosing which products to buy or which civil society organizations to join. The other is choosing what state or local government to live under in a federal system - a decision often influenced by the quality of those jurisdictions' public policy. ~ Ilya Somin
Political Ignorance quotes by Ilya Somin
Political ignorance helps explain Americans' perpetual disappointment with politicians generally, and presidents especially, to whom voters unrealistically attribute abilities to control events. ~ George Will
Political Ignorance quotes by George Will
When the facts of history are written Haile Selassie of Abyssinia will go down as a great coward who ran away from his country to save his skin and left the millions of his countrymen to
struggle through a terrible war that he brought upon them because of his political ignorance and his racial disloyalty. ~ Marcus Garvey
Political Ignorance quotes by Marcus Garvey
Absolutism, in both religious and political idealism, is a splendid incentive to heroic action, but a dangerous guide in immediate and concrete situations. In religion, it permits absurdities and in politics cruelties, which fail to achieve justifying consequences because the inertia of human nature remains a nemesis to the absolute ideal...The fanaticism which in the individual may appear in the guise of a harmless or pathetic vagary, when expressed in political policy, shuts the gates of mercy on mankind. ~ Gustav Niebuhr
Political Ignorance quotes by Gustav Niebuhr
We cannot wait for governments to do it all. Globalization operates on Internet time. Governments tend to be slow moving by nature, because they have to build political support for every step. ~ Kofi Annan
Political Ignorance quotes by Kofi Annan
For emotion is the enemy of rational argument. ~ Steven D. Levitt
Political Ignorance quotes by Steven D. Levitt
America's political landscape is infested with many zombie ideas - beliefs about policy that have been repeatedly refuted with evidence and analysis but refuse to die. The most prominent zombie is the insistence that low taxes on rich people are the key to prosperity. ~ Paul Krugman
Political Ignorance quotes by Paul Krugman
The nation-state is becoming less and less competent to perform its international political tasks ... These are some of the reasons pressing us to lead vigorously toward the true building of a new world order. ~ Nelson Rockefeller
Political Ignorance quotes by Nelson Rockefeller
There are no 'political prisoners' as such in Bahrain. People are not arrested because they express their views, we only have criminals. ~ Hamad Bin Isa Al Khalifa
Political Ignorance quotes by Hamad Bin Isa Al Khalifa
My political philosophy as a libertarian says that government has no business intervening in any consensual private behavior. My professional ethic as a thinker and writer, however, says that self-knowledge is our ultimate responsibility ~ Camille Paglia
Political Ignorance quotes by Camille Paglia
In comparative terms, there's no poverty in America by a long shot. Heritage Foundation political scientist Robert Rector has worked up figures showing that when the official U.S. measure of poverty was developed in 1963, a poor American family had an income twenty-nine times greater than the average per capita income in the rest of the world. An individual American could make more money than 93 percent of the other people on the planet and still be considered poor. ~ P. J. O'Rourke
Political Ignorance quotes by P. J. O'Rourke
Those peculiar social sensibilities nourished by our own peculiar political principles, while they enhance the true dignity of a prosperous American, do but minister to the added wretchedness of the unfortunate; first, by prohibiting their acceptance of what little random relief charity may offer; and, second, by furnishing them with the keenest appreciation of the smarting distinction between their ideal of universal equality and their grind-stone experience of the practical misery and infamy of poverty. ~ Herman Melville
Political Ignorance quotes by Herman Melville
I recently discussed with an intelligent and well-disposed man the threat of another war, which in my opinion would seriously endanger the existence of mankind, and I remarked that only a supranational organization would offer protection from that danger. Thereupon my visitor, very calmly and coolly, said to me: "Why are you so deeply opposed to the disappearance of the human race?". ~ Albert Einstein
Political Ignorance quotes by Albert Einstein
If Christians always seemed to be the most intelligent and the most righteous of men, I'd be a skeptic. ~ Criss Jami
Political Ignorance quotes by Criss Jami
Political correctness and so many of the political fashions of the day ... could only be perpetrated in adolescent minds: minds, that is, that are trained to search out one thing and one thing only ... Only an adolescent would find it worthwhile to devote his or her attention chiefly to the hunting of offenses, the possibility of slights, real and imagined. ~ Joseph Epstein
Political Ignorance quotes by Joseph Epstein
I have come to believe that politicians are in the business of 'marketing' their product to the public, by exaggerating threats and over-selling government solutions. ~ Arnold Kling
Political Ignorance quotes by Arnold Kling
The notion of political correctness has ignited controversy across the land. And although the movement arises from the laudable desire to sweep away the debris of racism and sexism and hatred it replaces old prejudices with new one. It declares certain topics off-limits, certain expressions off-limits, even certain gestures off-limits. What began as a crusade for civility has soured into a cause of conflict and even censorship. ~ George H. W. Bush
Political Ignorance quotes by George H. W. Bush
Throughout the ages, Christians have adapted John of Patmos's visions to changing times, reading their own social, political and religious conflicts into the cosmic war he so powerfully evokes. Yet his Book of Revelation appeals not only to fear and desires for vengeance but also to hope. ~ Elaine Pagels
Political Ignorance quotes by Elaine Pagels
In some countries we have had the right to vote for less than 100 years, so the entry of women into political leadership has caused a tsunami. ~ Iveta Radicova
Political Ignorance quotes by Iveta Radicova
Mexico has experimented with political change since the late 1980s. ~ Enrique Pena Nieto
Political Ignorance quotes by Enrique Pena Nieto
The irony, of course, is that not long ago, it was Trump's own ancestors - German American immigrants - who were the demons of the day, as the United States fought two world wars against Germany. The only thing that saved Trump's people from being rounded up and put in camps during World War II, like Japanese American families - as Trump lauded President Franklin Roosevelt for doing - was that their skin color happened to be white. Those who are so eager to stigmatize Muslims today should keep this in mind - next time around it could be them. That's the way these American nativist, "know-nothing" uprisings work. One day it's Catholics who are the reviled aliens, then it's Jewish people, then it's Muslims. If you don't belong to one of these groups, just wait your turn - you could be next in line.
We will always be subjected to these us-versus-them hysteria campaigns as long as people in power seek to divide Americans for their own cynical political purposes - whether it's to whip up war fever, split apart working people, or simply keep the citizenry fearful and easier to manipulate. ~ Arsalan Iftikhar
Political Ignorance quotes by Arsalan Iftikhar
The key questions answered by tipping point leaders are as follows: What factors or acts exercise a disproportionately positive influence on breaking the status quo? On getting the maximum bang out of each buck of resources? On motivating key players to aggressively move forward with change? And on knocking down political roadblocks that often trip up even the best strategies? By single-mindedly focusing on points of disproportionate influence, tipping point leaders can topple the four hurdles that limit execution of blue ocean strategy. They can do this fast and at low cost. Let ~ W.Chan Kim
Political Ignorance quotes by W.Chan Kim
The rain's been racing earthwards as if with some religious or political fanaticism. The clouds have the look of dark internal bleeding. Surely you lot look up from Cosmo while this sort of thing's going on? Surely you take a Playstation break? ~ Glen Duncan
Political Ignorance quotes by Glen Duncan
The salient feature of America in the Age of Obama is a failed government class institutionally committed to living beyond its means, and a citizenry too many of whom are content to string along. ~ Mark Steyn
Political Ignorance quotes by Mark Steyn
Books are a light. A light that melts ignorance an hate. ~ Dave Connis
Political Ignorance quotes by Dave Connis
You will leave as soon as our meeting concludes. Right under his nose. And when you return, you will praise him."
Gauri balked. "Praise him? He did nothing!"
"You would do well to learn how to play the games of court," I said. "Sometimes an illusion is just as good as the actual thing. The difference lies in the telling. Make this one concession. Find out what happens next. If you bring back these soldiers and word gets out that it was your idea and your escape, he may punish them on your behalf."
Gauri considered me. "What are you?"
"A maybe-false queen!" butted in Kamala.
It must have come out as another deranged horse whinny because Gauri nearly jumped.
"I told you," I said, not meeting her gaze. "I'm a person who lived here once upon a time."
"You know far too much about the political schemes of Bharata."
"My father was a diplomat."
"No, he wasn't! No, he wasn't!" sang Kamala. "Lies are fun. Lies are nice. They taste like rice soaked in milk and sliced and diced with cardamom and--"
"Is your horse ill?" asked Gauri.
"No, not at all," I said and smacked Kamala on her flank. "She's eager."
"For blood," said Kamala. ~ Roshani Chokshi
Political Ignorance quotes by Roshani Chokshi
Since my first discussions of ecological problems with Professor John Day around 1950 and since reading Konrad Lorenz's "King Solomon's Ring," I have become increasingly interested in the study of animals for what they might teach us about man, and the study of man as an animal. I have become increasingly disenchanted with what the thinkers of the so-called Age of Enlightenment tell us about the nature of man, and with what the formal religions and doctrinaire political theorists tell us about the same subject. ~ Allan McLeod Cormack
Political Ignorance quotes by Allan McLeod Cormack
I declare to you, from the bottom of my heart, that no Socialist system can be established without a political police ... No Socialist Government conducting the entire life and industry of the country could afford to allow free, sharp, or violently-worded expressions of public discontent. They would have to fall back on some form of Gestapo, no doubt very humanely directed in the first instance. ~ Winston S. Churchill
Political Ignorance quotes by Winston S. Churchill
The system of patriarchy can function only with the cooperation of women. This cooperation is secured by a variety of means: gender indoctrination; educational deprivation; the denial of women of knowledge of their history; the dividing of women, on from another, by defining "respectability" and "deviance" according to women's sexual activities; by restraints and outright coercion; by discrimination in access to economic resources and political power; and by awarding class privileges to conforming women. ~ Gerda Lerner
Political Ignorance quotes by Gerda Lerner
Wisdom makes light the darkness of ignorance. ~ Gautama Buddha
Political Ignorance quotes by Gautama Buddha
A president should look for what binds the people together rather than what drives them apart. As soon as you are identified with one side of the political map, you are no longer everybody's president. ~ Dan Shechtman
Political Ignorance quotes by Dan Shechtman
There's as much revealed in the way a person lifts a glass as in what they say about some political issue. ~ Rosemary Mahoney
Political Ignorance quotes by Rosemary Mahoney
All I know is that I am not a Marxist. ~ Karl Marx
Political Ignorance quotes by Karl Marx
A single person cannot know even a billionth of what is known, which is not even a trillionth of what there is to know. ~ Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Political Ignorance quotes by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
The health care bill is nothing about health care- it's about controlling the people. ~ David Lincoln
Political Ignorance quotes by David Lincoln
In ancient times, bodily strength and dexterity, being of greater use and importance in war, was also much more esteemed and valued, than at present ... In short, the different ranks of men are, in a great measure, regulated by riches. ~ David Hume
Political Ignorance quotes by David Hume
And she made it clear that her position was not based on political calculations, decrying the China policy of her own party's president as "dictated by US businesses."
That's why the president changed his view. Because big business weighed in," she said. " They have enormous resources. They are willing to spend an unlimited amount. And the money not only speaks, the money rules. ~ Marc Sandalow
Political Ignorance quotes by Marc Sandalow
13Therefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and rest your hope fully upon the grace that is to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; 14as obedient children, not conforming yourselves to the former lusts, as in your ignorance; 15but as He who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, 16because it is written, "Be holy, for I am holy."a ~ Anonymous
Political Ignorance quotes by Anonymous
From the start the proportion of asocials in the camp was about one-third of the total population, and throughout the first years prostitutes, homeless and 'work-shy' women continued to pour in through the gates. Overcrowding in the asocial blocks increased fast, order collapsed, and then followed squalor and disease.
Although we learn a lot about what the political prisoners thought of the asocials, we learn nothing of what the asocials thought of them. Unlike the political women, they left no memoirs. Speaking out after the war would mean revealing the reason for imprisonment in the first place, and incurring more shame. Had compensation been available they might have seen a reason to come forward, but none was offered.
The German associations set up after the war to help camp survivors were dominated by political prisoners. And whether they were based in the communist East or in the West, these bodies saw no reason to help 'asocial' survivors. Such prisoners had not been arrested as 'fighters' against the fascists, so whatever their suffering none of them qualified for financial or any other kind of help. Nor were the Western Allies interested in their fate. Although thousands of asocials died at Ravensbrück, not a single black- or green-triangle survivor was called upon to give evidence for the Hamburg War Crimes trials, or at any later trials.
As a result these women simply disappeared: the red-light districts they came from had been flattened by Allied ~ Sarah Helm
Political Ignorance quotes by Sarah Helm
You can't compare men or women with mental disorders to the normal expectations of men and women in without mental orders. Your dealing with symptoms and until you understand that you will always try to find sane explanations among insane behaviors. You will always have unreachable standards and disappointments. If you want to survive in a marriage to someone that has a disorder you have to judge their actions from a place of realistic expectations in regards to that person's upbringing and diagnosis. ~ Shannon L. Alder
Political Ignorance quotes by Shannon L. Alder
A lot of things that we cannot buy and sell in markets used to be totally legal objects of market exchange - human beings when we had slavery, child labour, human organs, and so on. So there is no economic theory that actually says that you shouldn't have slavery or child labour because all these are political, ethical judgments. ~ Ha-Joon Chang
Political Ignorance quotes by Ha-Joon Chang
Everyone matures. When I was Newt's age, I thought I had the right answer to things. The baby-boomers as political leaders are still on trial by the American people. ~ Pete Du Pont
Political Ignorance quotes by Pete Du Pont
Ignorance shrinks minds; perception is the compass to knowledge. ~ Vasilios Karpos
Political Ignorance quotes by Vasilios Karpos
The offhand decision of some commonplace mind high in office at a critical moment influences the course of events for a hundred years. ~ Thomas Hardy
Political Ignorance quotes by Thomas Hardy
Addiction is craving fulfillment from something that cannot provide fulfillment. In this sense it is not different than the basic mechanism of ignorance that keeps everyone in bondage. With substance addiction the mind/body sets up a vicious cycle that perpetuates the dependence. ~ Deepak Chopra
Political Ignorance quotes by Deepak Chopra
When you die, no matter who you are,
you may be remembered for your courage
or despised for your cowardice,
you may be remembered for your gratitude
or despised for your bitterness,
you may be remembered for your benevolence
or despised for your meanness,
you may be remembered for your modesty
or despised for your arrogance,
you may be remembered for your peace
or despised for your violence,
you may be remembered for your compassion
or despised for your ruthlessness,
you may be remembered for your mercy
or despised for your vengeance,
you may be remembered for your love
or despised for your unkindness,
you may be remembered for your strengths
or despised for your weaknesses,
you may be remembered for your virtues
or despised for your unrighteousness,
you may be remembered for your knowledge
or despised for your ignorance,
you may be remembered for your wisdom
or despised for your foolishness,
and you may be remembered for your accomplishments
or despised for your incompetence.

When I die, I want to be remembered
for my smile, not my tears;
for my laughter, not my pain;
for my joy, not my grief;
for my patience, not my anger;
for my friends, not my enemies;
for my mind, not my riches;
for my heart, not my titles;
for my soul, not my achievements;
for my triumphs, not my tragedies; ~ Matshona Dhliwayo
Political Ignorance quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
Never miss a political meeting if you think there's the slightest chance you'll wish you'd been there. ~ Morton Blackwell
