Text Quotes
There’s a perennial debate about whether the propagandistic tripe produced by establishment media outlets is shaped more by evil or by stupidity. Personally, I think it’s both: a healthy dose of each is needed. The system design is malicious, while those who serve as its public face are generally vacant.  (Glenn Greenwald Quotes) Even if we’re not doing anything wrong, there are certain things we want to do that we don’t think can withstand the scrutinizing eye of other people. And those are often the most important things that we do. The things we do when other people are watching are things that are conformist, obedient, normal, and unnotable.  (Glenn Greenwald Quotes) There are few things more dangerous in a democracy than allowing a President to wage secret wars without the knowledge of the country.  (Glenn Greenwald Quotes) Embedded in ‘The New York Times’ institutional perspective and reporting methodologies are all sorts of quite debatable and subjective political and cultural assumptions about the world. And with some noble exceptions, ‘The Times,’ by design or otherwise, has long served the interests of the same set of elite and powerful factions.  (Glenn Greenwald Quotes) The genius of America’s endless war machine is that, learning from the unpleasantness of the Vietnam war protests, it has rendered the costs of war largely invisible.  (Glenn Greenwald Quotes) There’s a huge dichotomy between people who grow up with alienation, which, for me, was invaluable, and people who grow up so completely privileged that it breeds this complacency and lack of desire to question or challenge or do anything significant. Those are the types of people who become partners at the corporate law firms.  (Glenn Greenwald Quotes) Even when influential political and media figures vehemently complained about the criticisms I wrote, Salon’s editors unfailingly stood behind my work.  (Glenn Greenwald Quotes) Very few people use landline phones for much of anything. So when you talk about things like online chat and social media messages and emails, what you’re really talking about is the full extent of human communication.  (Glenn Greenwald Quotes) Colin Powell speaks regularly to high-ranking U.S. officials, he knows a lot about what’s going on in the government. And so he’s a powerful person who merits transparency, just like any other powerful people do.  (Glenn Greenwald Quotes) The highest compliment one can give a writer is not to say that one wholeheartedly agrees with his observations, but that he provoked - really, forced - difficult thinking about consequential matters and internal questioning of one’s own assumptions, often without quick or clear resolution.  (Glenn Greenwald Quotes) The Obama administration does not hate unauthorized leaks of classified information. They are more responsible for such leaks than anyone. What they hate are leaks that embarrass them or expose their wrongdoing. Those are the only kinds of leaks that are prosecuted.  (Glenn Greenwald Quotes) The Obama administration leaks classified information continuously. They do it to glorify the President, or manipulate public opinion, or even to help produce a pre-election propaganda film about the Osama bin Laden raid.  (Glenn Greenwald Quotes) The most extremist power any political leader can assert is the power to target his own citizens for execution without any charges or due process, far from any battlefield. The Obama administration has not only asserted exactly that power in theory, but has exercised it in practice.  (Glenn Greenwald Quotes) Who cares if virtually the entire world views Obama’s drone attacks as unjustified and wrong? Who cares if the Muslim world continues to seethe with anti-American animus as a result of this aggression? Empires do what they want.  (Glenn Greenwald Quotes) Whatever one thinks of the justifiability of drone attacks, it’s one of the least ‘brave’ or courageous modes of warfare ever invented. It’s one thing to call it just, but to pretend it’s ‘brave’ is Orwellian in the extreme.  (Glenn Greenwald Quotes) The Obama administration says we only destroy the privacy of non-Americans. That is not true. The government is spying on Americans.  (Glenn Greenwald Quotes) Many of the benefits from keeping terrorism fear levels high are obvious. Private corporations suck up massive amounts of Homeland Security cash as long as that fear persists, while government officials in the National Security and Surveillance State can claim unlimited powers and operate with unlimited secrecy and no accountability.  (Glenn Greenwald Quotes) A common criticism of establishment journalists entails comparing them to stenographers, on the ground that most of them do little more than mindlessly write down and uncritically repeat what government officials say.  (Glenn Greenwald Quotes) Free speech rights means that government officials are barred from creating lists of approved and disapproved political ideas and then using the power of the state to enforce those preferences.  (Glenn Greenwald Quotes) The ultimate test of a society’s freedom is not how it treats its good, obedient, compliant citizens; it’s how it treats its dissidents.  (Glenn Greenwald Quotes) Many American pundits and foreign policy experts love to depict themselves as crusaders for human rights, but it almost always takes the form of condemning other governments, never their own.  (Glenn Greenwald Quotes) The purpose of whistleblowing is to expose secret and wrongful acts by those in power in order to enable reform.  (Glenn Greenwald Quotes) The virtue of gay equality has become increasingly recognized in the U.S. because people have been persuaded of its merits, not because state officials, acting like Inquisitors, forced people to accept it by punishing them for their refusal.  (Glenn Greenwald Quotes) I’ve praised Obama’s record on same-sex equality as enthusiastically as anyone: it’s one area where his record has been impressive. I understand, and have expressed, the emotional importance for LGBT Americans of his marriage announcement as well as its political significance.  (Glenn Greenwald Quotes) [H]aving the career of the beloved CIA Director and the commanding general in Afghanistan instantly destroyed due to highly invasive and unwarranted electronic surveillance is almost enough to make one believe not only that there is a God, but that he is an ardent civil libertarian.  (Glenn Greenwald Quotes) We know that U.S. voters, and world leaders, allow Obama extraordinary leeway when it comes to deadly drone strikes, precisely because of his politics, character and background. (We are talking about a man, after all, who won the Nobel Peace Prize while ordering the automated killing of suspected Muslim terrorists around the world).  (Glenn Greenwald Quotes) As for the claim that drone ‘pilots’ are not engaged in the extinguishing of human life via video games, the military’s own term for its drone kills - ‘bug splat,’ which happens to be the name of a children’s video game - and other evidence negates that.  (Glenn Greenwald Quotes) The American national security state is totally bipartisan. My biggest problem is with the Democrats, like Feinstein and Pelosi, who are defending it because there is a Democrat in the White House, and they are party loyalists and hacks before they are public servants.  (Glenn Greenwald Quotes) The government usually announces it killed a Big Terrorist 5 or 6 different times before they’re dead - they’re almost like cats.  (Glenn Greenwald Quotes) As always, imagine how great the press corps would be if it devoted 1/1000th the energy to dissecting non-sex political wrongdoing  (Glenn Greenwald Quotes)
