Quote Of The Day

" If it once became general, wealth would confer no distinction....But in practice such a society could not long remain stable. For if leisure & security were enjoyed by all alike, the great mass of human beings who are normally stupefied by poverty would become literate & would learn to think for themselves; & when once they had done this, they would sooner or later realise that the privileged minority had no function, & they would sweep it away. In the long run, a hierarchical society was only possible on a basis of poverty & ignorance...Ignorance is Strength"-----George Orwell's "1984"
