“People get used to anything. The less you think about your oppression, the more your tolerance for it grows. After a while, people just think oppression is the normal state of things. But to become free, you have to be acutely aware of being a slave.”

At war
Or at peace,
More people die
Of unenlightened self-interest
Than of any other disease”
