In a dizzying, energising and raucous return to the pamphleteering days of the 18th and 19th centuries, the people have, through the worldwide web and easy-to-use publishing software, been given a voice. They will not easily be silenced. (The ‘Scotsman’)
Quote of the Day
“Falsehood flies”, wrote Jonathan Swift more than 300 years ago, “and truth comes limping after it, so that when men come to be undeceived, it is too late; the jest is over, and the tale hath had its effect.” Mark Twain paraphrased this quite succinctly : “a lie will fly around the whole world while the truth is getting its boots on”.
