A Quote by C.S. Lewis on left, right, news, politics, and power

"Don't you understand anything?  Isn't it absolutely essential to keep a fierce Left and a fierce Right, both on their toes and each terrified of the other?  That's how we get things done.  Any opposition to the N.I.C.E. is represented as a Left racket in the Right papers and a Right racket in the Left papers.  If it's properly done, you get each side outbidding the other in support of us--to refute the enemy slanders.  Of course we're non-political.  The real power always is." -Miss Hardcastle.
