->''Alongside, in another prism, a hideous black demon was visible on the first plane. It growled and pranced, shaking its fist at the awestruck throng. Beyond this, a stage had been set up. A banner proclaimed the title of the piece: ''Colonial Treachery Overcome''; actors ran about, telling the official story of the war with the aid of rubber swords and papier-mâché. Everywhere you looked smiling ladies shoved copies of ''Real War Stories'' into outstretched hands. Such was the ceaseless noise and color and confusion that it was impossible for anyone present to think straight, let alone frame a coherent argument against the war. (I saw Mandrake's hand behind much of this. It had all his attention to detail, together with the theatrically he had learned off his mate, the playwright Makepeace. A perfect combination of the crude and the subtle.)''
-->Bartimaeus, ''Literature/TheBartimaeusTrilogy'', ''Ptolemy's Gate''

->Thanks to a little thing called The Internet, finding out if you’re about to perform for a dictator-type has never been easier. For example, you could throw their name into a search engine with the words “is maybe a dictator?” and see what comes up. Or you could use email and see if you receive any concerned emails from human rights groups with the subject line: “So I heard you’re about to perform for a dictator…“. Or, if you’re Music/NickiMinaj, you say “Fuck it” and perform for the dictator anyway.

->Some people think the media business is tough, but think of it like teaching preschool. There's a whole range of strategies, but one of them, guaranteed to work, is walking into class every morning and handing out giant tubs of ice cream. The [[Creator/FoxNews Fox]] lineup is the media equivalent of this: a giant pile of tits, explosions and football.

->The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it's profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.

->Already long ago, from when we sold our vote to no man, the People have abdicated our duties; for the People who once upon a time handed out military command, high civil office, legions -- everything, now restrains itself and anxiously hopes for just two things: [[TropeNamer bread and circuses]].
