“religion is no longer the opium of the people but the vitamin pills of the feeble.”
Regis Debray, Media Manifestos: On the Technological Transmission of Cultural Forms

“Difference is not the opposite of harmony but its condition.”
Regis Debray, Transmitting Culture

“Truly, more than removing the partition between vectors and values, we would have needed to talk about strengthening crisscrossed lacings: an intertwined kind of understanding that would de-ideologize 'ideologies,' desanctify sanctities, but also mentalize the material bases of systems of inscription, and psychoanalyze not souls but tools. That is, in one and the same gesture, make our mnemo-technic equipment intelligible as mentality and our mental equipment intelligible as technology.”
Regis Debray, Media Manifestos: On the Technological Transmission of Cultural Forms
