    President Johnson during the War on Poverty, on why so many poor whites vote for policies against their own interests:

    “If you can convince the lowest white man he’s better than the best colored man, he won’t notice you’re picking his pocket. Hell, give him somebody to look down on, and he’ll empty his pockets for you.”
    --Lyndon B Johnson

    "When wealth is passed off as merit, bad luck is seen as bad character. This is how ideologues justify punishing the sick and the poor. But poverty is neither a crime nor a character flaw. Stigmatize those who let people die, not those who struggle to live."- Sarah Kendzior.

    Who also said “democracy isn’t a great political system, but it’s the best we’ve currently got.” (Paraphrased but referenced accurately elsewhere in this thread.)

    There could be a thread on Churchill quotes alone.

    "If you stick a knife in my back nine inches and pull it out six inches, that's not progress. If you pull it all the way out, that's not progress. The progress comes from healing the wound that the blow made. But they haven't begun to pull the knife out... they won't even admit it's there"- Malcolm X
