    This is always a good one. From George Orwell:

    "The war is not meant to be won, it is meant to be continuous. Hierarchical society is only possible on the basis of poverty and ignorance. This new version is the past and no different past can ever have existed. In principle the war effort is always planned to keep society on the brink of starvation. The war is waged by the ruling group against its own subjects and its object is not the victory over either Eurasia or East Asia, but to keep the very structure of society intact."

    Carlin was one of my favorites. I got to see him live a couple years before he died (or per one of his jokes, "passed away"). He was either the funniest smart guy, or the smartest funny guy ever.
