“Democracy is when the indigent, and not the men of property, are the rulers.”
“You measure democracy by the freedom it gives its dissidents,
Not the freedom it gives its assimilated conformists.”
Free election of masters does not abolish the masters or the slaves.
~Herbert Marcuse. One-dimensional man.
"Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night."
~Edgar Allan Poe
The Magic of the Cities.
Zen promotes the rediscovery of the obvious, which is so often lost in its familiarity and simplicity. It sees the miraculous in the common and magic in our everyday surroundings. When we are not rushed, and our minds are unclouded by conceptualizations, a veil will sometimes drop, introducing the viewer to a world unseen since childhood. ~ John Greer
