A Death in the Family by Karl Ove Knausgård

Knaussgard has created a sometimes-mesmerizing, sometimes-irritating tome to start off his "My Struggle" series, mimicking the literary approach forged by Proust.

On the whole, the book is mostly mesmerizing, but there are parts of the story where, f

“Cinema is the ultimate pervert art. It doesn't give you what you desire - it tells you how to desire.”
Slavoj Žižek

Aldous Huxley
“There will be, in the next generation or so, a pharmacological method of making people love their servitude, and producing dictatorship without tears, so to speak, producing a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies, so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them, but will rather enjoy it, because they will be distracted from any desire to rebel by propaganda or brainwashing, or brainwashing enhanced by pharmacological methods. And this seems to be the final revolution”
Aldous Huxley

“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”
Helen Schucman

David James Duncan
“Our lack of community is intensely painful. A TV talk show is not community. A couple of hours in a church pew each Sabbath is not community. A multinational corporation is neither a human nor a community, and in the sweatshops, defiled agribusiness fields, genetic mutation labs, ecological dead zones, the inhumanity is showing. Without genuine spiritual community, life becomes a struggle so lonely and grim that even Hillary Clinton has admitted "it takes a village".”
David James Duncan

“Fear is not real. It is a product of thoughts you create. Do not misunderstand me. Danger is very real. But fear is a choice.”
Will Smith
