    Exclamation From the latest Listener - very true!

    From "Quips and Quotes" in the latest Listener:

    "If you believe that everyone should play by the same rules and be judged by the same standards, that would have had you labelled a radical 50 years ago, a liberal 25 years ago and a racist today." - Thomas Sowell, quoted in the Week.

    Very true in our little country. I'm a New Zealand European and very definitely the wrong skin colour.
    It is better to wear out than to rust out.
    - Richard Chamberlain, Tour of the Hebrides

He has argued that it is a propaganda tactic akin to those used by Joseph Goebbels because it comes with an attitude that it must be "repeated long enough and loud enough" until it is believed and people "cave in" to it.

    A dark skinned Marxist apparently.
