Michael Crichton
“Оплетеният в жици свят е смърт. Всеки биолог знае, че малките изолирани групи се развиват най-бързо. Ако оставите хиляда птици на остров сред океана, тещ е се развият много бързо. Ако ги оставите на голям континент, еволюцията им ще се забави. При нашия вид, при хората, еволюцията се осъществява предимно чрез поведението. За да се приспособим, прибягваме към нов тип поведение. А всеки знае, че новото се появява само в малките групи. Създай комисия от трима души и може би ще свършват някаква работа. При десет души нещата стават сложни. При трийсет души няма никакъв резултат. При трийсет милиона просто няма какво да се надяваме. Това е ефектът от информационните медии - заради тях не може да се случи нищо. Унищожават разнообрацието. Целият свят постепенно става еднакъв. В Банкок, Токио или Лондон... на всеки ъгъл има "Макдоналдс" или "Бенетон". Регионалните различия изчезват. В света на медиите не съществува нищо друго освен първите десет песни, първите десет книги, първите десет филма, идеи и така нататък. Хората се тревожат, че в дъждоносните джунгли на Амазонка намалява разнообразието на видовете. Ами какво да кажем за интелектуалното разнообразие, нашия най-необходим ресурс? То изчезва по-бързо от дърветата. Само че ние все още не сме го разбрали и сега се каним да оплетем едва ли не пет милиарда души в компютърни мрежи. Та това ще доведе до стагнация на целия ни вид! Всичко ще замре. Всички ще мислят едно и също нещо по едно и също време.”
Michael Crichton, The Lost World

Philip Pullman

“Busquemos una sombra solitaria donde vaciar de nuestro pecho la tristeza”

Malcolm X
“The liberal element of Whites are those who have perfected the art of selling themselves to the Negro as a friend of the Negro, getting the sympathy of the Negro, getting the allegiance of the Negro, getting the mind of the Negro, and then the Negro sides with the White liberal and the White liberal uses the Negro against the White conservative so that anything that the Negro does is never for his own good, never for his own advancement, never for his own progress, he’s only a pawn in the hands of the White liberal. The worst enemy the Negro has is this White man who runs around here drooling at the mouth professing to love Negroes and calling himself a liberal and it is following these White liberals that has perpetuated the problems that Negroes in America have. If the Negro wasn’t taken, trapped, tricked, deceived by the White liberal then Negroes would get together and solve our own problems. It was the White liberals that come up with the Civil War, supposedly they say, to solve the Negro, the slave question. Lincoln was supposedly a White liberal. When you read the true history of Lincoln, he wasn’t trying to free any slaves, he was trying to save the union. He was trying to save his own party. He was trying to conserve his own power and it was only after he found he couldn’t do it without freeing the slaves that he came up with the Emancipation Proclamation. So, right there you have deceit of White liberals making Negroes think that the Civil War was fought to free them, you have the deceit of White liberals making Negroes think that the Emancipation Proclamation actually freed the Negroes and then when the Negroes got the Civil War and found out they weren’t free, got the Emancipation Proclamation and they found out they still weren’t free, they begin to get dissatisfied and unrest, they come up with the...the same White liberal came up with the 14th Amendment supposedly to solve the problem. This came about, the problem still wasn’t solved, ‘cause to the White liberal it’s only a political trick. Civil War, political trick, Emancipation Proclamation, political trick, 14th Amendment to this raggedy Constitution, a political trick. Then when Negroes begin to develop intellectually again, and realize that their problem still wasn’t solved, and unrest began to increase, the Supreme Court...another so-called political trick...came up with what they call a Supreme Court Desegregation Decision, and they purposely put it in a you know, sir, that these men on the Supreme Court are masters of the King’s English, masters of legal phraseology, and if they wanted a decision that no one could get around, they would have given one but they gave their Supreme Court Desegregation Decision in 1954 purposely in a language, phraseology that enabled all of the crooks in this country to find loopholes in it that would keep them from having to enforce the Supreme Court Desegregation Decision. So that even after the decision was handed down, our problem has still not been solved. And I only cite these things to show you that in America, the history of the White liberal has been nothing but a series of trickery designed to make Negroes think that the White liberals was going to solve our problem and it is only now that the honorable Elijah Muhammad has come on the scene and is beginning to teach the Black man that our problem will never be solved by the White man that the only way our problem will be solved is when the Black man wakes up, cleans himself up, stands on his own feet, stops begging the White man and takes immediate steps to try and do for ourselves the things that we’ve been waiting for the White man to do for us. Once we do them for ourselves, once we think for ourselves, once we see for ourselves then we’ll be able to solve our own problems and we’ll be recognized as human beings all over this earth.”
Malcolm X
