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

“The whole educational and professional training system is a very elaborate filter, which just weeds out people who are too independent, and who think for themselves, and who don't know how to be submissive, and so on -- because they're dysfunctional to the institutions.”

 “Education is a system of imposed ignorance.” 

“Everyone’s worried about stopping terrorism. Well, there’s really an easy way: Stop participating in it.” 

“The more you can increase fear of drugs, crime, welfare mothers, immigrants and aliens, the more you control all of the people.” 

“See, people with power understand exactly one thing: violence.” 

“It is important to bear in mind that political campaigns are designed by the same people who sell toothpaste and cars.” 

“Neoliberal democracy. Instead of citizens, it produces consumers. Instead of communities, it produces shopping malls. The net result is an atomized society of disengaged individuals who feel demoralized and socially powerless.

In sum, neoliberalism is the immediate and foremost enemy of genuine participatory democracy, not just in the United States but across the planet, and will be for the foreseeable future.” 

“It is the responsibility of intellectuals to speak the truth and expose lies.” 

― Noam Chomsky
