            "In [Aldous] Huxley's [Brave New World] vision ... people will come to love their oppression, to adore the technologies that undo their capacities to think.

            What [George] Orwell [1984] feared were those who would ban books. What Huxley feared was that there would be no reason to ban a book, for there would be no one who wanted to read one. Orwell feared those who would deprive us of information. Huxley feared those who would give us so much that we would be reduced to passivity and egoism. Orwell feared that the truth would be concealed from us. Huxley feared the truth would be drowned in a sea of irrelevance. Orwell feared we would become a captive culture. Huxley feared we would become a trivial culture..."

            "It's an obscene comparison, but there was a time in South Africa when people would put flaming tires around people's necks if they dissented. In some ways, the fear is that you will be necklaced here, you will have a flaming tire of lack of patriotism put around your neck. It's that fear that keeps journalists from asking the toughest of the tough questions and to continue to bore in on the tough questions so often. again."

            "A 2003 Gallup survey found 31 percent of respondents receiving their news every day or several times a week from talk radio... The largest personality-centered shows are all conservative: Rush Limbaugh has 14.5 million regular listeners, followed by Sean Hannity (11.8 million), and Michael Savage (7 million) (De la Vina 2004)... By the mid-1990s, regular talk radio listeners constituted around 20 percent of U.S. voting adults (Barker and Knight 2000)."

            "Our politics, religion, news, athletics, education and commerce have been transformed into congenial adjuncts of show business, largely without protest or even much popular notice. The result is that we are a people on the verge of amusing ourselves to death."
