A Quote by Henry David Thoreau on civil disobedience, political, philosophy, american, 1800s, independent, progressive, trancendentalist, and dissent

Cast your whole vote, not a strip of paper merely, but your whole influence. A minority is powerless while it conforms to the majority; it is not even a minority then; but it is irresistible when it clogs by its whole weight.

A Quote by James William Fulbright on action, dissent, exploring, fear, learning, possibility, thinking, and world

We must dare to think 'unthinkable' thoughts. We must learn to explore all the options and possibilities that confront us in a complex and rapidly changing world. We must learn to welcome and not to fear the voices of dissent. We must dare to think about 'unthinkable things' because when things become unthinkable, thinking stops and action becomes mindless.

J. William Fulbright (1905 - 1995)

A Quote by Dr. Joost A. M. Meerloo, MD on assumptions, dissent, mind, opportunity, politics, and words

He who dictates and formulates the words and phrases we use, he who is master of the press and radio, is master of the mind. Repeat mechanically your assumptions and suggestions, diminish the opportunity for communicating dissent and opposition. This is the formula for political conditioning of the masses.

A Quote by Dr. Joost A. M. Meerloo, MD on assumptions, dissent, opportunity, politics, and simplicity
