“Never underestimate the power of stupid”
Richard King

“The very fact that 'the mystical' is seen as irrelevant to issues of social and political authority itself reflects contemporary, secularized notions of and attitudes toward power. The separation of the mystical from the political is itself a political decision!”
Richard King, Orientalism and Religion: Post-Colonial Theory, India and the Mystic East
