13 quotes from Leonard Wibberley: 'The crime which is done now is that war has made a tool and slave of science, and man's knowledge, painfully and laboriously compiled, is made the instrument of man's destruction.', '(F)or it was the belief of the duchy that no nation can be governed well unless there is a majority which can impose its will upon a minority. The Mouse That Roared: Disney And The End of Innocence by Henry A. Giroux and Grace Pollock sets a new standard for the study of Disney and popular culture. It offers new lens to understand the merger between corporate power and corporate culture while unveiling the insidious educational force of pre-packaged culture/5().
