Short Father Son Quotes

Religion is a totalitarian belief. It is the wish to be a slave. It is the desire that there be an unalterable, unchallengeable, tyrannical authority who can convict you of thought crime while you are asleep, who can subject you to total surveillance around the clock every waking and sleeping minute of your life, before youre born and, even worse and where the real fun begins, after youre dead. A celestial North Korea. Who wants this to be true? Who but a slave desires such a ghastly fate? Ive been to North Korea. It has a dead man as its president, Kim Jong-Il is only head of the party and head of the army. Hes not head of the state. That office belongs to his deceased father, Kim Il-Sung.

It is the most revolting and utter and absolute and heartless tyranny the human species has ever evolved. But at least you can f#$%ing die and leave North Korea!

Quite interesting, North Korea is as if it's an entirely secular dictatorship. In North Korea you might think that was the case since it has an officially Communistic ideology, but it's not, it's the most religious state it's possible to imagine. It's actually two people who have been fused into one, maybe this is reminding you of something, there's the father and there's the son. It's one short of a trinity.

— Christopher Hitchens
