Heretical Quotes, Part One

Just to kind of counterbalance the previous post, here are some heretical quotations that I've managed to pick up along the way:

  1. The law, in its majestic equality, forbids the rich as well as the poor to sleep under bridges, to beg in the streets, and to steal bread. - Anatole France
  2. The more you can increase fear of drugs and crime, welfare mothers, immigrants and aliens, the more you control all the people. - Noam Chomsky
  3. Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false, and by the rulers as useful. - Seneca the Younger
  4. Heresy is only another word for freedom of thought. - Graham Greene
I'll be posting some more of them as time goes by.
