Secretive anti-democratic-in fact, tyrannical-institutions [with much in common with Fascism and Bolshevism] which, not so long ago, sneaked into our social system through the back door of the courts.

-- Mark Amen, Director of the Globalization Research Center, University of Southern Florida

-- Noam Chomsky, Institute Professor, MIT
