Jerry Brown


Formerly Governor of California, ran for the Democratic Party's presidential nomination, was Mayor of Oakland, California, then Attorney General of California, and is again Governor.
Jerry Brown
The CIA was revealed to be spying in France, not for military purposes, but for corporate purposes. So this $30 billion spook agency is now at the disposal of these oligarchic corporate structures run by the 1%.
Brown quotes
So we are being systematically trained to fear this false ‘rising crime' tide. This is all part of a system to lock up more people, and impose more control and surveillance.
Brown
I'd shrink government in a minute, if I could shrink GM, Bank of America, and all these immoral corporations that operate by an undemocratic code, with no soul and no conscience.




Brown Jerry quotes
I listened, and I've come to the conclusion I just don't trust him.
Brown Jerry
The conventional viewpoint says we need a jobs program and we need to cut welfare. Just the opposite! We need more welfare and fewer jobs.
Jerry Brown quotes
I don't know who Jerry Brown is anymore. There's been so many evolvements.
Jerry Brown
The way people are treated in them [prisons] is very similar to gulags.
Brown Jerry quotes
We've got to back up here and say it's not okay. It's not okay even to kill guilty people.
Brown
Let's draw the boundary early not wait until it's obvious like Hitler's Germany and insist that the state shall never, never, take the life of a person!
Brown Jerry
The U.S. incarceration binge is not tied to crime. It's a strategy to control the surplus population in a capitalist system that is breaking down.
Jerry Brown
That's another step forward in creating a nation of sheep in a totalitarian state, saying, "Yes sir, yes sir! Is that what you want? Do it to me again!" By the time they graduate, kids won't even know they have rights. They'll be little stooges for a fascist state.




Jerry Brown quotes
…not to mention the CIA which should be, I think, dissolved, it's of no use — a great source of mischief — I don't see any point to the FBI…
Jerry Brown
I do not believe he believes what he is saying.
Brown quotes
The drug war isn't what purports to be. If you look at the whole operation and the tie-in between the American intelligence agencies, these so-called "assets", the spies on the payroll of the CIA, and drug dealers. Don't let members of Congress and the media get away with this complacency and distortion!
Brown Jerry
The great danger of humane punishment is that people will come to accept state murder as something sanitary. I don't think bureaucracy should ever be entrusted with that kind of power.
Brown Jerry quotes
[Jerry Brown is] a desperate man.
Jerry Brown
The big lock-up is about drugs. Here's the real scam. The drug war is one of the games to get more convictions and prisoners.
Jerry Brown quotes
The governor is the worst administrator ever to come down the pike.
Jerry Brown
Here the system is creating an industry around the drug issue when it does nothing to stop the corrupt military that moves the drugs, and the big banks that are all in cahoots with the President and the big shots in the Congress.
Brown Jerry
He is by an order of magnitude the most self-absorbed politician I have ever dealt with.
