Old quotes for the grey day

School Prayer is a sort of a code word. It doesn't mean anything really. I think it would be a step in the right direction possibly. What matters is a return to basic discipline or morality. --Pat Robertson, Baptist Press, 6/7/86

Do as you're told: Vote Conservative. --Tory campaign button, London, 1987

There is no place left where people can discuss the realities which concern them, because they can never lastingly free themselves from the crushing presense of media discourse and of the various forces organized to relay it... When the spectacle stops talking about something for three days, it is as if it did not exist. --Guy Debord, Comments on the Society of the Spectacle

Never before has censorship been so perfect... The spectator is simply supposed to know nothing, and serve nothing. Those who are always watching to see what happens next will never act: such must be the spectator's condition. --Guy Debord, ibid.
