By writing, we get to create whole fictional worlds that didn’t exist before and add to the collective imagination. To know that others are reading what I’ve created and being inspired by it is a magical feeling. Well, I say it is, but as I don’t have any followers yet, that’s purely conjecture.

“He looked back as they shepherded the children indoors, thinking of the cities with their walls, gatehouses, razor wire, shutters, barriers, alarms, security cameras and bulletproof screens; it was the architecture of siege, not harmony. Division was engraved in the landscape and fear expressed in physical form.”
Steve Shahbazian, Green and Pleasant Land

“By thinking in the prescribed language, we conform without realising.”

“If you load oppositional words with negative connotations, then critical thought is stifled. If you load supportive words with positive connotations, then people can’t avoid thinking in the prescribed way.”

“People want the Government to do their thinking for them. They happily regurgitate their catchphrases and slogans, thinking they’ve come up with the ideas themselves. It’s a well-known phenomenon: it’s called passive cognition.”
Steve Shahbazian, Green and Pleasant Land

“The media’s so central to our lives that we believe what we see onscreen is real. In fact, it’s more real than reality: emotions are heightened, drama sharpened, issues simplified.”
