Authorities have power over people, and they enjoy this power. They preserve their power in society primarily by imposing knowledge on people. Authorities have been teaching us everything we know. Nothing can come to us if it does not pass the filters of authorities. We are what the authorities made us become, and it is challenging to escape from it.
George Orwell: “The further a society drifts from truth, the more it will hate those who speak it.”
Mark Twain: “It’s easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled.”
