Charles Fourier

Abd al-Rahman al-Kawakibi
“المستبد لا يستغنى عن أن يستمجد بعض افراد من ضعاف القلوب الذين هم كبقر الجنة لا ينطحون ولا يرمحون، يتخذهم كنموذج البائع الغشاش، على انه لا يستعملهم في شئ من مهامه فيكونون لديه كمصحف في خمارة او سبحة في يد زنديق . وربما لا يستخدم بعضهم في بعض الشئون تغليطآ لأذهان العامة في أنه لا يتعمد استخدام الأراذل والأسافل فقط ، ولهذا يقال أن دولة الاستبداد دولة بله واوغاد..

Charles de Coster
“You sanctimonious philistines, who scoff at me!
What has your politics fed on
since you've been ruling the world?
On butchery and murder!”
Charles de Coster, The Legend of the Glorious Adventures of Tyl Ulenspiegel in the Land of Flanders & Elsewhere

“When faced with unbridled wildness of reality, dinosaurs fall into fevered delusions of grandeur. In fits of madness, they recreate the world in their own overblown image, bull-dozing the wild and replacing it with a wasteland that reflects their own emptiness. Where there was once the incredibly complex diversity of nature, there is now the dead simplicity of asphalt and concrete.”
Curious George Brigade, Anarchy in the Age of Dinosaurs

“When will we collectively see together that the history of the world played no role in preventing negative events similar to those of the past from ever happening again in this lifetime? Everything just keeps senselessly repeating itself. That is because, as humans, we forget too quickly. Our forgetfulness is our species' greatest fault. Our negligence to tap into accessible existing knowledge to prevent new disasters from recurring is unforgiving. We are too arrogant, too proud and too lazy to adapt old ideas that may have worked, let alone invent some new ones. Yet most importantly, the greatest obstacle to our evolution is that WE ARE TOO DIVIDED.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

Karen Elliott House
“What unites conservatives and modernizers and young and old, is a hunger not for freedom but for justice; for genuine rule of law, not rule by royal whim. They want a government that is a transparent and accountable, one that provides standards services such as are available in far less wealthy societies: good education, job, affordable housing , and decent health care.”
Karen Elliott House, On Saudi Arabia: Its People, Past, Religion, Fault Lines - and Future

Steven Magee
“I regard President Trump as an international terrorist.”
Steven Magee

“Intelligence and perserverance cannot defeat the purpose of popularity because it can describe a trait of a successful person who is prominent.”
Saaif Alam

Jean-Paul Sartre
“In the heat of the battle, all internal barriers break down; the puppet bourgeoisie of businessmen and shopkeepers, the urban proletariat, which is always in a privileged position, the lumpen-proletariat of the shanty towns - all fall into line with the stand made by the rural masses, that veritable reservoir of a national revolutionary army; for in those countries where colonialism has deliberately held up development, the peasantry, when it rises, quickly stands out as the revolutionary class. For it knows naked oppression, and suffers far more from it than the workers in the towns, and in order not to die of hunger, it demands no less than a complete demolishing of all existing structures. In order to triumph, the national revolution must be socialist”
Jean-Paul Sarte

“Politics is like theatre. An actor has confidence when he knows he is perfectly constumed, made-up and lit for the boards or film.”
Roger Stone, Stone's Rules: How to Win at Politics, Business, and Style

Paul D. Miller
“People need to be taught how to live as part of a body, how to understand and live out our roles as a member of a church, citizen of a nation, and resident of a community. In our self-centered, narcissistic, individuaistic, expressionist age, we are incompetent in the arts of living together. We may be naturally social and political animals, but we still have to acquire the cultivated virtues of citizens. Churches must help form us into better political animals.”
Paul D. Miller, The Religion of American Greatness: What’s Wrong with Christian Nationalism
