 Robert Fisk:  “We are in love with the word, seduced by it, fixated by it, attacked by it, assaulted by it, raped by it, committed to it. It is love and sadism and death in one double syllable, the prime time-theme song, the opening of every television symphony, the headline of every page, a punctuation mark in our journalism, a semicolon, a comma, our most powerful full stop.”

From “Fighting talk: The new propaganda,” The Independent, Monday, 21 June 2010:
