quote by Friedrich Engels

We find two great gangs of political speculators, who alternately take possession of the state power and exploit it by the most corrupt ends -- the nation is powerless against these two great cartels of politicians who are ostensibly its servants, but in reality dominate and plunder it.

— Friedrich Engels

I think that all art is socially conscious.

There is no alternative. Whatever we produce contains a political and social statement. There's no way to avoid that, unless it is pure decoration.

In a democracy, if people don't have accurate information, how can they be active citizens? How can they be part of the debate?

Once we have taken the backward step to an abstract view of our whole system of beliefs, evidence, and justification, and seen that it works only, despite its pretensions, by taking the world largely for granted, we are not in a position to contrast all these appearances with an alternative reality.

The U theory suggests that the central integrating thought .

.. will emerge from building three integrated capacities: a new capacity for observing that no longer fragments the observer from what's observed; a new capacity for stillness that no longer fragments who we really are from what's emerging; and a new capacity for creating alternative realities that no longer fragments the wisdom of the head, heart and hand.
