Henri Charrière
“We have too much technological
progress, life is too hectic, and our society has only one goal: to invent
still more technological marvels to make life even easier and better.
The craving for every new scientific discovery breeds a hunger for
greater comfort and the constant struggle to achieve it. All that kills the
soul, kills compassion, understanding, nobility. It leaves no time for
caring what happens to other people, least of all criminals. Even the
officials in Venezuela's remote areas are better for they're also
concerned with public peace. It gives them many headaches, but they
seem to believe that bringing about a man's salvation is worth the
effort. I find that magnificent.”
Henri Charrière, Papillon

Denis Diderot
“Men will never be free until the last king is strangled with the entrails of the last priest.”
Denis Diderot

Karl Marx
“If you love without evoking love in return - if through the vital expression of yourself as a loving person you fail to become a loved person, then your love is impotent, it is a misfortune.”
Karl Marx, Economic and Philosophic Manuscripts of 1844

“Education is the kindling of a flame, not the filling of a vessel.”

Robert Anton Wilson
“The Bible tells us to be like God, and then on page after page it describes God as a mass murderer. This may be the single most important key to the political behavior of Western Civilization.”
Robert Anton Wilson
