“The privacy you’re concerned about is largely an illusion. All you have to give up is your illusions, not any of your privacy.“

George Bernard Shaw and Winston Churchill

George Bernard Shaw sent a note to Winston Churchill saying “I am enclosing two tickets to the first night of my new play; bring a friend… if you have one.”

To which Sir Winston replied “Cannot possibly attend first night, will attend second… if there is one.”

“If the process of concentration goes on at the same rate, at the end of another century we shall have all of American industry controlled by a dozen corporations and run by perhaps a hundred men. Put plainly, we are steering a steady course toward economic oligarchy, if we are not there already.”

“If we are to achieve a richer culture, rich in contrasting values, we must recognize the whole gamut of human potentialities, and so weave a less arbitrary social fabric, one in which each diverse human gift will find a fitting place.”
