George Orwell
“In a time of deceit telling the truth is a revolutionary act.”
George Orwell

George Orwell
“He who controls the past controls the future. He who controls the present controls the past.”
George Orwell, 1984

Leslie Feinberg
“We have not always been forced to pass, to go underground, in order to work and live. We have a right to live openly and proudly...when our lives are suppressed, everyone is denied an understanding of the rich diversity of sex and gender expression and experience that exist in human society.”
Leslie Feinberg, Transgender Warriors: Making History from Joan of Arc to Dennis Rodman

Martin Luther King Jr.
“We must rapidly begin the shift from a "thing-oriented" society to a "person-oriented" society. When machines and computers, profit motives and property rights are considered more important than people, the giant triplets of racism, materialism, and militarism are incapable of being conquered.”
Martin Luther King Jr.

Bell Hooks
“The process begins with the individual woman’s acceptance that American women, without exception, are socialized to be racist, classist and sexist, in varying degrees, and that labeling ourselves feminists does not change the fact that we must consciously work to rid ourselves of the legacy of negative socialization.”
Bell Hooks, Ain't I a Woman: Black Women and Feminism
