John Kenneth Galbraith Quote

“These are the days when men of all social disciplines and all political faiths seek the comfortable and the accepted; when the man of controversy is looked upon as a disturbing influence; when originality is taken to be a mark of instability; and when, in minor modification of the original parable, the bland lead the bland.”

Dick, Fort Worth

True in many ways. In the past there were many more original thinkers who were willing to speak out. Today's world is full of brainwashed, "bland" sheep who have become trained to suspect anything not fed to them by corporate-controlled government and media.

Right on Dick,Fort Worth. The "Bland" get that way in our union controlled public schools.
