Unititled Quote

"Intellectuals , it is supposed, have a duty to speak truth to power. But as Orwell’s mellifluously sinister O’Brien in 1984 would no doubt remind us, power doesn’t have to listen to anything it doesn’t want to listen to. You can speak truth at power and you can speak truth about power, but speaking truth to power is a dangerous business".
