The idea represented in the title—that thoughts are free—was expressed as early as in antiquity and became prominent again in the Middle Ages, when Walther von der Vogelweide (c.1170–1230) wrote: joch sint iedoch gedanke frî (“yet still thoughts are free”). In the 12th century, AustrianminnesingerDietmar von Aist (presumably) had composed the song Gedanke die sint ledic vrî (“only thoughts are free”). About 1229, Freidank wrote: diu bant mac nieman vinden, diu mîne gedanke binden. (“this band may no one twine, that will my thoughts confine”).
The song was important to certain anti-Nazi resistance movements in Germany.
1. Thoughts are free, who can guess them?
They fly by like nocturnal shadows.
No man can know them, no hunter can shoot them
with powder and lead: Thoughts are free!
2. I think what I want, and what delights me,
still always reticent, and as it is suitable.
My wish and desire, no one can deny me
and so it will always be: Thoughts are free!
3. And if I am thrown into the darkest dungeon,
all these are futile works,
because my thoughts tear all gates
and walls apart: Thoughts are free!
4. So I will renounce my sorrows forever,
and never again will torture myself with whimsies.
In one’s heart, one can always laugh and joke
and think at the same time: Thoughts are free!
5. I love wine, and my girl even more,
Only her I like best of all.
I’m not alone with my glass of wine,
my girl is with me: Thoughts are free!
“I can’t be controlled! I cannot be controlled! There are no interests here, but what I see as the world events, period! That is the truth of the situation.”
” I have remained completely independent from all of them. All of them! I am not influenced by any of them. I need no traffic from Google. I don’t care if I get one traffic referral from Google, or Bing, or Yahoo, or any of these others. It’s always been that way. Now, if you think of that set up, how rare that is….”
“Why aren’t we seeing Hillary’s lovers? Excuse me. Why aren’t we seeing Hillary’s lovers? Where is the cover-up on this? So many issues that are suppressed on a daily basis. So, that’s what I try to do every morning.”
“Well, I don’t know, because this is another thing. The measurements that we have, this is another bogus thing. Yesterday they released on the A.P.A Wire, Twitter followers. Hillary is the queen of the Twitters with 4.9 million. They don’t say how many are fake. They don’t know how many there are.”
“Well, the A.P. did not do that, Alex. So, this whole thing, this whole socials, these socials. You know, Beats One Music, which I’m obsessed with, which has been launched on Apple, uhh, which is probably one of the best things they’ve done since Steve Jobs died. One radio station. Interesting. They don’t know how many listeners they have. I heard some streams, they were down to five thousand an hour. This whole social media stuff is bogus. Facebook, we have two billions users? This is garbage! This is designed to demoralize the individual. I’ll never have two billion followers! This Internet is what you make of it.”
“…you’ve gotta be the greatest you can be now. Now. Before this country is so completely altered and we’re left with Hillary’s brain, in the Oval Office, in a jar. Because that’s what we’re getting. She’s old and she’s sick! She’s not a contender! They’re making her a contender with these propped-up Saturday Night Live things! It’s like a head on a stick! And, then on the Today Show with gun three. A head on a stick! She is not a viable, vibrant leader for this country of three hundred, including the illegals, three hundred and eighty million Americans! So, the media is trying to put us to sleep. You’re not letting ’em, Alex…”
“I’m just warning this country that, yes, don’t get into this false sense that you are an individual when you’re on Facebook. No. You’re Not. You’re a pawn in their scheme.”
(commenting on political elite hypocrites calling for a repeal of the second amendment) “Well, because they’re all armed themselves, or they all have that security around them themselves. They don’t have to worry about it. I challenge Hillary; take away your Secret Service. Take it away now! Take away your Secret Service! Dismiss them! Have no security around you. Have no guns around you, Hillary. I dare you! I dare you! Obama, same thing. Drop your guns, Obama! Take your Secret Service away, Obama. Take it all away! Leave the White House unguarded, Obama. Let everybody know there’s no guns on the White House grounds, Obama. You know what would happen in 30 seconds? Both of those people would no longer be on planet Earth. So, they’re asking us to drop our guns, and to drop our security measures or…Or what!? So, this thing is very real, and I don’t see how it’s being taken seriously, except for the sick voter. You can’t underestimate the sickness of the American people right now. They’re really sick. And, that’s, I’m more angry at the sick Americans than I am at Obama or Hillary. I’m really angry at the sick Americans.”
“The point and issue is: Should America’s immigration policy be used to benefit the people already here or should it be benefiting Pakistani pushcart operators, illiterate in their own language, never mind ours, who come here, go on welfare, commit terrorism, engage in crimes? Why wouldn’t you look out across the world like a sports team does and try to get the crème de la crème?”
“I want to say a few words and show just a very few clips from Project Veritas. I wanted to say that we did it, and the media in this country, as Bill Little said last night, is now discredited. It’s dead and we have killed it … “
“I’m going to walk you through very quickly just some of what I think are the poignant historical moments. It all started 4 weeks ago when Twitter kicked me off. I was kicked off Twitter for releasing the videos, and out of nowhere thousands of people sent messages to the CEO of Twitter. Thousands of people sent messages to Jack Dorsey and they reinstated my account 36 hours later, and when they did we had 40,000 new followers. “
“People are leaving the mainstream media because they want to know the truth.”
“… people go to Washington and they become corrupted, but what I’ve learned is that you can play the media, you can defeat the media and you can get the media to react. You can get the media to react to your narrative, but we’ve got to focus on the truth and we have to have both physical and moral courage. We need people in this country who are going to fight for something greater than themselves, but the politicians are never going to do it. It has to be the citizens. It has to be ordinary people who do extraordinary things. It was my team. Twelve full-time undercover journalists risking their lives to do this. We need more people risking their lives on our soil and on this soil because the war, as Marcus Luttrell said, is not overseas. The war is in the media trenches. That’s where the war is now and we’re going to have to continue that war…”

Trump.
