Alain Badiou
“It is now an easy matter to spell out the ethic of a truth: 'Do all that you can to persevere in that which exceeds you perseverance. Persevere in the interruption. Seize in your being that which has seized and broken you.”
Alain Badiou, Ethics: An Essay on the Understanding of Evil

Herbert Marcuse
“The truth of art lies in its power to break the monopoly of established reality to define what is real.”
Herbert Marcuse

“If, however, we pursue what is expressed in the phrase 'the language of things', we are pointed in a similar direction. The language of things too is something to which we should pay better attention. This expression also has a kind of polemical accent. It expresses the fact that, in general, we are not at all ready to hear things in there own being, that they are subjected to man's calculus and to his domination of nature through the rationality of science.”
GADAMER, HANS GEORG

Terry Eagleton
“If the oppressed must be alert enough to follow the rulers' instructions, they are therefore conscious enough to be able to challenge them.”
Terry Eagleton, Ideology: An Introduction

Herbert Marcuse
“The so-called consumer society and the politics of corporate capitalism have created a second nature of man which ties him libidinally and aggressively to the commodity form. The need for possessing, consuming, handling and constantly renewing the gadgets, devices, instruments, engines, offered to and imposed upon the people, for using these wares even at the danger of one’s own destruction, has become a “biological” need.”
Herbert Marcuse
