„Do you see law and order? There is nothing but disorder, and instead of law there is the illusion of security. It is an illusion because it is built on a long history of injustices: racism, criminality, and the genocide of millions. Many people say it is insane to resist the system, but actually, it is insane not to.“

Death Blossoms (2004, South End Press; Cambridge MA), p. 11

„We have built illusions round us and see no way out of the glass forest.“

—  Brian W. Aldiss British science fiction author 1925 - 2017

The Glass Forest (1986)
Contexto: Plato would have no actors in his republic, in case pretence devoured what was real. Plato's fears have proved well-grounded. Actors, despised, almost outcast, until last century, have become something more than respectable. They, together with all those imitation actors, pop stars, TV celebrities, people who are famous for being famous, now receive adulation. They are the millionaires, the courtesans of our system. Solzhenitsyn, escaping to a West he had once admired, snarled at the meretricious falsity of what he found. We have built illusions round us and see no way out of the glass forest.

„Law and order represents the largest circle within which is the next circle representing public order and the smallest circle represents security of State. It is then easy to see that an Act may affect law and order but not public order, just as an act may affect public order but not security of the State.“

—  Mohammad Hidayatullah 11th Chief Justice of India 1905 - 1992

He explained the intricate relationship of the concepts of law and order, public order and the security of the State, in a particular case.
