I think love is often a bit selfish, even before we had consumerism.

Even in an intensely mediated world, in a world that offers at least the illusion of radical self-invention and radical freedom of choice, I as a novelist am drawn to the things you can't get away from. Because much of the promise of radical self-invention, of defining yourself through this marvelous freedom of choice, it's just a lie. It's a lie that we all buy into, because it helps the economy run.

The old freedom sufficiently survives in the mind of the wage earner to give him the illusion that, while accepting insurance and maintenance from the capitalist state, he can still be a full citizen.

They were catching their proletariat in a net, and now they hold it fast.

Our illusions-the beliefs we hold on to-are the very doorways to our freedom.

The achievement of freedom is hardly possible without the felt mourning.

This ability to mourn, i.e, to give up the illusion of a happy childhood, can restore vitality and creativity if a person is able to experience that he was never loved as a child for what he was, but for his achievements, success and good qualities.

We all have the freedom of a balloon floating in a pin factory.


Whether they really believe in their brave new world, however, is ultimately beside the point. They're building it.

Freedom? A more perfect captivity is difficult to imagine.
