Book cover for Blackout: How Black America Can Make Its Second Escape from the Democrat Plantation
“Moses generation,” the generation of Martin Luther King. Obama said, “The Moses generation has gotten us 90 percent of the way there. It is up to my generation, the Joshua generation, to get us the additional 10 percent.”
Erin Loechner
“I used to think the opposite of control was chaos. But it's not. The opposite of control is surrender.”
Erin Loechner, Chasing Slow: Courage to Journey Off the Beaten Path

Nev Schulman
“Social media has put an incredible pressure on the Facebook generation. We’ve made our lives so public to one another, and as a result we feel pressure to live up to a certain ideal version of ourselves. On social media, everyone is happy, and popular, and successful—or, at least, we think we need to look like we are. No matter how well off we are, how thin or pretty, we have our issues and insecurities. But none of that shows up online. We don’t like to reveal our weaknesses on social media. We don’t want to appear unhappy, or be a drag. Instead, we all post rose-colored versions of ourselves. We pretend we have more money than we do. We pretend we are popular. We pretend our lives are great. Your status update says I went to a totally awesome party last night! It won’t mention that you drank too much and puked and humiliated yourself in front of a girl you like. It says My sorority sisters are the best! It doesn’t say I feel lonely and don’t think they accept me. I’m not saying everyone should post about having a bad time. But pretending everything is perfect when it’s not doesn’t help anyone. The danger of these kinds of little white lies is that, in projecting the happiness and accomplishments we long for, we’re setting impossible standards for ourselves and others to live up to.”
Nev Schulman, In Real Life: Love, Lies & Identity in the Digital Age

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
“I often make the mistake of thinking that something that is obvious to me is just as obvious to everyone else.”
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, We Should All Be Feminists

Erin Loechner
“We are doing ourselves no favors when we look to the crowd to tell us where we are.”
Erin Loechner, Chasing Slow: Courage to Journey Off the Beaten Path

Maureen Dowd
“We no longer have natural selection. We have unnatural selection. Survival of the fittest has been replaced by survival of the fakest.”
Maureen Dowd, Are Men Necessary?: When Sexes Collide
