US Justice Department on Drone Strikes (2012): "Certain aspects of this legal framework require additional explication. First, the condition that an operational leader present an "imminent" threat of violent attack against the United States does not require the United States to have clear evidence that a specific attack on U.S. persons will take place in the immediate future."
George Orwell on Nonsense Literature (1945): "There is also the humor of pure fantasy, which assaults man's notion of himself as not only a dignified but a rational being. Lewis Carroll's humour consists essentially in making fun of logic, and Edward Lear's is a sort of poltergeist interference with common sense. Comic verse... often depends on building up a fantastic universe which is just similar enough to the real universe to rob it of its dignity."
