    Unlimited economic growth has the marvelous quality of stilling discontent while maintaining privilege, a fact that has not gone unnoticed among liberal economists.
    Noam Chomsky (b. 1928)

    Weapons are an important factor in war, but not the decisive factor; it is people, not things, that are decisive.

    Mao Zedong (1893–1976)
