Support ineffective dissent

‘The smart way to keep people passive and obedient is to strictly limit the spectrum of acceptable opinion, but allow very lively debate within that spectrum …’ (Noam Chomsky, The Common Good, 2002). ‘We will tolerate dissent as long as it is ineffective.’ (John Gorton, Australian prime minister, c. 1970)
