"Every jumbled pile of person has a thinking part that wonders what the part that isn't thinking isn't thinking of. Should you worry when the skullhead is in front of you, or is it worse because it's always waiting where your eyes don't go?"
-from James Joyce's Ulysses
"Our economy is based on spending billions to persuade people that happiness is buying things, and then insisting that the only way to have a viable economy is to make things for people to buy so they’ll have jobs and get enough money to buy things."
--Philip Slater, from The Pursuit of Loneliness
"Capitalism, left to its own devices, doesn't work properly; it excludes the poor, ruins the environment, and fails to deliver enough collectively produced goods, such as roads, reservoirs, schools, and hospitals." --John Kenneth Galbraith, from The Affluent Society
"Almost everything we buy, after all, is the product of some other person's suffering and miserably underpaid labor" --Barbara Ehrenreich
"One person with a belief is equal to a force of 99 who have only interests." -John Stuart Mill
"It's my duty as a human being to be pissed off." -Eric Bogosian, "SubUrbia"
"There is something deeply suffocating about life today in the prosperous west. Bourgeoisification, the suburbanisation of the soul, proceeds at an unnerving pace. Tyranny becomes docile and subservient, and soft totalitarianism prevails, as obsequious as a wine waiter. Nothing is allowed to distress and unsettle us. The politics of the playgroup rules us all." --J.G. Ballard
"The thing I hate most about advertising is that it attracts all the bright, creative and ambitious young people, leaving us mainly with the slow and self-obsessed to become our artists. Modern art is a disaster area - never in the field of human history has so much been used by so many to say so little." - Banksy
"wandering between two worlds, one dead,
The other powerless to be born."
--Matthew Arnold, from "Stanzas from the Grande Chartreuse"
