First they came for the Socialists, 
and I did not speak out
Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, 
and I did not speak out
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out-
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me--and there was no one left to speak for me.

"A Taxi to the Dark Side," Full Documentary: 
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CPPQ8fhwDHc
The Bagram File : Asaldin & Shahpoor, Dilawar's father & brother, suffer from his loss & knowledge of his fate. The death certificate they'd received from the US army indicated that Dilawar's death was a homicide, but they didn't read or speak English. It was NYTimes investigative journalist, Carlotta Gall, who discovered the truth when they showed her the document & she who explained the truth to them! It said 'blunt-force trauma to the legs.' Had Dilawar survived, his legs would have had to be amputated, according to the Army coroner who performed the autopsy, for they had been reduced to pulp by the beatings he'd been subjected to by the US jailors & interrogators who continued even after they realized that the accusations of his involvement in terrorism were absolutely groundless, simply for the 'pleasure' of hearing him cry out for 'Allah' to come to his rescue! http://www.nytimes.com/2005/05/20/international/asia/20abuse.html?pagewanted=all&_r=0

The Exaltation of Ignorance  (by Frank Zappa, in The Real Frank Zappa Book)





Stupidity has a certain charm – ignorance does not.

It has been said that ignorance is bliss – I’m not so sure. Perhaps I have been deprived in this regard but, never having been truly ignorant, I find it difficult to speak with any authority on the topic of such a ‘blissful state.’ 




I have, however, observed a lot of other people who were certifiably ignorant, and I wouldn’t say they were in a state of ‘bliss.’ They were having a good time, but I wouldn’t call it ‘bliss.’



When we celebrate Ignorance, and make that the National Standard of Excellence, we embarrass ourselves.



We celebrate it in hit records, TV sitcoms, most films, most commercials and, to a great extent, in our schools.





Our school systems train kids to be ignorant, with style – functional ignoramuses. They do not equip students to deal with things like logic; they don’t give them the criteria by which to judge between good and bad in any product or situation. They are groomed and launched to function as mindless buying machines for the products and concepts of a multinational military-industrial complex that needs a World of Dumbbells to survive.





As long as you’re just smart enough to do some kind of job, and just dumb enough to swallow the bunting, you’re going to be ‘all right’ – but, if you venture beyond that, you run the risk of mysterious stomach problems and migraine headaches.



I believe that U.S. schools have a Search and Destroy program, aimed at any hint of creative thinking exhibited by students. Somebody plans this curriculum. Somebody writes those textbooks. Somebody sets those standards. Somebody watches to make sure it all goes well. Somebody pays big bucks for this shit


The Very Big Stupid



Some scientists claim that hydrogen, because it is so plentiful, is the basic building block of the universe. I dispute that. I say there is more stupidity than hydrogen, and that is thebasic building block of the universe.





This is not a matter of ‘pessimism’ vs. ‘optimism’ – it’s a matter of accurate assessment.



Not only is there more stupidity than anything else in terms of universal quantity, but there is a wonderful quality to this stupidity. It is so intensely perfect that it completely overwhelms whatever it is that nature has piled up on the other pan of the scale.



Stupidity is replicating itself at an astonishing rate. It breeds easily and is self-financing.



The person who stands up and says, “This is stupid,” either is asked to ‘behave’ or, worse, is greeted with a cheerful “Yes, we know! Isn’t it terrific!”



When Hitler was doing his shit, a whole bunch of people thought he was terrific, too. How could they be wrong? There were so many of them; they thought they looked good together – their arms all went up at the same time.



It seems to me that Americans in the eighties exhibit a remarkable willingness to embrace Fascism, especially when it is presented to them on a TV tray with balloons and bunting all over it.



It would be easier to pay off the national debt overnight than to neutralize the long-range effects of OUR NATIONAL STUPIDITY.




The Shoah was a Nazi German, European genocide, but, we, in the USA, also have our very own domestic genocide to remember, and its victims & survivors, & the descendants of those survivors, to respectively mourn for & to celebrate, & apply The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) to, which we still have failed to do!
