Christopher Hitchens Quote: “The Bible may, indeed does, contain a warrant for trafficking in humans, for ethnic cleansing, for slavery, for bride-price, and for indiscriminate massacre, but we are not bound by any of it because it was put together by crude, uncultured human mammals.”
Christopher Hitchens Quote: “What better way for a ruling class to claim and hold power than to pose as the defenders of the nation.”

Christopher Hitchens Quote: “It’s impossible, I think, however much I’d become disillusioned politically or evolve into a post-political person, I don’t think I’d ever change my view that socialism is the best political moment humans have ever come up with.”
Christopher Hitchens Quote: “I used to wish there was a useful term for those of us who thought American power should be used to remove psychopathic dictators.”

Christopher Hitchens Quote: “A celebrity is well known for being well known. I’m relatively well known – but for what I’ve written and said, or so I fondly imagine.”
Christopher Hitchens Quote: “The measure of an education is that you acquire some idea of the extent of your ignorance.”
Christopher Hitchens Quote: “As Edward Gibbon observed about the modes of worship prevalent in the Roman world, they were “considered by the people as equally true, by the philosopher as equally false and by the magistrate as equally useful.”
