«What unified the Balochis in their quest to regain self-determination, which resulted in the ‘existing state’? On the one hand, authoritarianism, militarization, and conquest has robbed them of their history and put them into the do or die situation. On the other hand, natural resources which would allow the citizens at large to achieve a respectable existence have been controlled by the military or political elites, well connected to feudal political elites in Pakistan.»

Nilantha Ilangamuwa

«There's a huge swath of humanity that has developed verbal abilities to extract resources from guilt-ridden people.»

Stefan Molyneux

«Be wary of those propagating too much about liberty, ideology, and civility; they just might be oppressors in the making.»

Aniruddha Sastikar


«These examples and many others demonstrate an alarming trend whereby the privacy and dignity of our citizens is being whittled away by sometimes imperceptible steps. Taken individually, each step may be of little consequence. But when viewed as a whole, there begins to emerge a society quite unlike any we have seen -- a society in which government may intrude into the secret regions of man's life at will."»

William O. Douglas


«If I were to construct a God I would furnish Him with some way and qualities and characteristics which the Present lacks.»
