“The worst thing is not that the world is unfree, but that people have unlearned their liberty.  The more indifferent people are to politics, to the interests of others, the more obsessed they become with their own faces. The individualism of our time.  If high culture is coming to an end, it is also the end of you and your paradoxical ideas, because paradox as such, belongs to high culture and not to childish prattle. You remind me of the young men who supported the Nazis or communists not out of cowardice or out of opportunism but out of an excess of intelligence. For nothing requires a greater effort of thought than arguments to justify the rule of nonthought… You are the brilliant ally of your own gravediggers."

~Milan Kundera



"How does it become a person to behave towards the American government today? I answer, that a person cannot without disgrace, be associated with it."

~Henry David Thoreau



"Once we sign on for war’s crusade, once we see ourselves on the side of the angels, once we embrace a theological or ideological belief system that defines itself as the embodiment of goodness and light, it is only a matter of how we will carry out murder."

~Chris Hedges


“Someone I loved once gave me a box full of darkness. It took me years to understand that this too, was a gift.” 

~Mary Oliver


"What is an anarchist? One who, choosing, accepts the responsibility of choice." 

~Ursula K. Le Guin


“If you're not ready to die for it, take the word 'freedom' out of your vocabulary.” 

~Malcolm X


“They didn't understand what they were doing.  I'm afraid that will be on the tombstone of the human race.” 

~Michael Crichton


 

“There is a loneliness in this world so great
that you can see it in the slow movement of
the hands of a clock.

people so tired
mutilated
either by love or no love.

people just are not good to each other
one on one.

the rich are not good to the rich
the poor are not good to the poor.

we are afraid.

our educational system tells us
that we can all be
big-ass winners.

it hasn't told us
about the gutters
or the suicides.

or the terror of one person
aching in one place
alone

untouched
unspoken to

watering a plant.”

~Charles Bukowski
