I admire its purity. A survivor… unclouded by conscience, remorse or delusions of morality.
— Ash, “Alien” (Ridley Scott, 1979)
In our work and planning and discussions, our main principle is that separation between peoples, war between peoples, is not a solution for any of the problems that divide them […] I, for one, am full of optimism, despite the darkening sky and the seemingly hopeless situation, for the time being, that encloses us all.
No one, of course, is conscious of his own ideology, any more than he can smell his own breath.
And your way, is it really your way? […] What, moreover, can you call your own? The house you live in, the food you swallow, the clothes you wear — you neither built the house nor raised the food nor made the clothes. […] The same goes for your ideas. You moved into them ready-made.
Nothing annoys forces of authority more than trying to bow out of the disciplinary game entirely and saying that we could just do things on our own. Direct action is a matter of acting as if you were already free.
Real power begins where secrecy begins.
For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known.
—Luke 12:2 (King James Bible)
…what I do know is that the world is not governed by good sense, but by multinationals.
