Points To Think About

"Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it whether it exists or not, diagnosing it incorrectly, and applying the wrong remedy." Sir Ernest Benn

"The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country." Hermann Goering

Just 2 quotes from the book, Beyond Terror - The Truth About the Real Threats to Our World. I picked this gem up from Borders' bargain bin for only RM14, after 50% discount.

Another recommended viewing is the documentary The 11th Hour narrated by Leonardo DiCaprio. I bought this DVD when I was down in Singapore last year for the Nike Human Race. This is the lesser known environmental awareness program to Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth. Now that I've watched both, I can say that they're both different in their message delivery and both are highly recommended. The 11th Hour is now available at our local Speedy and larger home video retailers. The messages delivered in the last 5 minutes alone are already worth the price of the DVD.
