Nonetheless the advertiser, unless a monopolist, usually remains within the realm of persuasion among a background of choice. True propaganda, by contrast, aims to obliterate that marketplace and the choices as such, by making them seem ...more

“When faced with a challenge (be it a hurricane or a struggling business or a reluctance to start writing), we must decide to act and then we must act. We should perceive our worries as an indication that we should meet our challenges head on, cut right to the heart of them, and take action. Otherwise, we’ll be in the aftermath of the storm, sitting and staring at that old tree that’s collapsed onto our patio, and asking, “Well, what now?”
R. Reid Wilson, Stopping the Noise in Your Head: The New Way to Overcome Anxiety and Worry

“The absolute authority of market forces would be enshrined as the ultimate source of imperative control, displacing democratic contest and deliberation with an ideology of atomized individuals sentenced to perpetual competition for scarce resources. The disciplines of competitive markets promised to quiet unruly individuals and even transform them back into subjects too preoccupied with survival to complain.”
Shoshana Zuboff, Master or Slave?: The Fight for the Soul of Our Information Civilization

“at least in IBM’s case, when it honored and nurtured its sales force and its sales culture, it was productive and successful. That statement may sound incredibly obvious. When their values prevailed, IBM did well. But beginning shortly after the new millennium, they did not always prevail. IBM, like many other corporations, in recent years has relied increasingly on what came to be known as “financial engineering” to improve performance. It was never enough to ensure success.”
James W. Cortada, IBM: The Rise and Fall and Reinvention of a Global Icon

Chris Dancy
“Why on Earth would you slow a book down though? Interestingly enough, listening to books at half speed is a great way to fall asleep. Your mind will slowly drift off as the speed of your internal monologue starts to match the dialogue of the slower book. There are very few times in this book where I will advocate you messing with your senses as profoundly as I am here, but I truly believe that you can master your content overload by using your attention and time to get the most out of what technology has to offer.”
Chris Dancy, Don't Unplug: How Technology Saved My Life and Can Save Yours Too

Nescio
“Six years they’d been married. And while she sliced the bread every morning and spread the butter and poured tea, for him and for Bobi and for the maid, and sometimes for the cleaning lady… You try slicing bread and making sandwiches for four kids just once, if you’re not used to it, the way the unfortunate writer of these pages has done on occasion, it’ll drive you insane. Over time you’d probably get used to it, but dear God, over time it would also get horrifically boring if you were unfortunate enough to think about it.”
Nescio, Amsterdam Stories
