Beauty Laziness will save the world”


― Fyodor Dostoyevsky Me

“I don’t want my house to be completely surrounded by walls, I don’t want my windows to be sealed. I want the cultures of every country to enter my home as freely as possible. But l refuse to be crushed by any one of them.”
Gandhi

I don’t want my house to be completely surrounded by walls, I don’t want my windows to be sealed. I want the cultures of every country to enter my home as freely as possible. But l refuse to be crushed by any one of them.

Gandhi

The world is full of people who are very clever at seeming much smarter than they actually are. They dazzle us with facts and quotations and foreign words and so on, whereas the truth is that they know almost nothing of use in life as it is really lived.

All over the place, from the popular culture to the propaganda system, there is constant pressure to make people feel that they are helpless, that the only role they can have is to ratify decisions and to consume.

The abolition of government is a historical inevitability—and what people say about it now, for or against, will be seen in that light. A culture that blindly clings to a violent and inhuman institution as barbaric as the state will be viewed just as schoolchildren today view slavery, human sacrifice or the ridiculous idea that the earth is flat.

First they came for the communists, and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a communist.
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a Jew.
Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn’t speak out because I was Protestant.
Then they came for me. And there was no one left to speak out for me.

Reducing them to apathy and obedience, allowing them to participate in the political system, but as consumers, not as true participants. You allow them a method for ratifying decisions that are made by others, but you eliminate the methods by which they might first, inform themselves; second, organize; and third, act in such a way as to really control decision-making. The idea is that our leaders control us, not that we control them. That is a very widespread view from liberals to conservatives.

Love and respect woman. Look to her not only for comfort, but for strength and inspiration and the doubling of your intellectual and moral powers. Blot out from your mind any idea of superiority; you have none.
