My copy of the 'fortune' program (UNIX) brought this up when I
loggged in today, and its almost cyberpunk-ish so I thought I'd forward it
to ya'll...
"Our government has kept us in a perpetual state of fear -- kept us in
a continuous stampede of patriotic fervor -- with the cry of grave
national emergency... Always there has been some terrible evil to
gobble us up if we did not blindly rally behind it by furnishing the
exorbitant sums demanded. Yet, in retrospect, these disasters seem
never to have happened, seem never to have been quite real."
-- General Douglas MacArthur, 1957
