Reason not to trust the government



St Giles' Church, Imber

Villages destroyed by the state: Imber and Tyneham (more), England

'Please treat the church and houses with care; we have given up our homes where many of us lived for generations to help win the war to keep men free. We shall return one day and thank you for treating the village kindly.'

- Note pinned to the door of St Mary's, Church, Tyneham, Dorset, 1943

'Pa, what does confiscate mean?'

'Stealing.'


- the movie Shenandoah
