An excellent website with much information on many British-Atlantic groups, run by Lobster's William Clarke
"The philosophers have only interpreted the world, in various ways. The point, however, is to change it." Karl Marx

"He would, wouldn't he?" Mandy Rice-Davies. When asked in court whether she knew that Lord Astor had denied having sex with her.

“I think it would be a good idea” Ghandi, when asked about Western Civilisation.
Loved this little morsel:

"...those individuals who go by the name Lobbyists' are also sometimes Pollsters' or Political consultants' or Communications consultants' or something else. They have gone to great lengths to disguise themselves as part of their efforts to influence how we think about certain things and also to avoid scrutiny and oversight. On behalf of their clients, they have disguised themselves as some unlikely organisations in what is an ultimately deceptive process.[2]
[2] The various terms here represent the deliberate confusion of the methodology, limits and purposes of these types of activity and their Russian doll-like concealment in the larger Public Relations' companies. Fake grass roots organisations, pseudo science, fake news organisations and pretend charities are all part of the weaponry of the PR world. Christopher Simpson's (1994) Science of Coercion Communication Research and Psychological Warfare 1945-1960, gives an illuminating history: see , while James Harding (2008) Alpha Dogs: How political spin became a global busines', London: Atlantic Books, is a recent addition to the literature here.

It could just as easily apply to the USofA.
"Where is the intersection between the world's deep hunger and your deep gladness?"
