Quotations with links

"The narrowminded variety of libertarians, who can see only one threat to markets and freedom - bureaucrats. Ignoring all of human history, this oversimplifying silliness has rendered libertarianism a joke, in the one country where it had a chance."--David Brin

"People don't look for allies when they love, but they do when they hate or become obsessed with a cause."--..::*Sunnely*::..

"Thus, the academe becomes the ideological home for the rationalizations and analyses for the 'free markets,' 'free trade,' and 'deregulation and privatization' which are relentlessly hammered home by the U.P. School of Economics. But our neo-liberal friends neglect to tell us that their prescription is based on freedom for business but discrimination against and repression for the laboring poor."--Roland G. Simbulan

"I've heard more than one activist posit that technology is a creature of the capitalist state. Bullshit. That's like saying reading, writing and basic mathematics are tools of the state and we should reject them."--antisocialite

"The dominance of players like Google is not a fact of nature, but a design decision, so this investigation into the realism of distributed alternatives is very important."--Michel Bauwens

"In particular I direct your attention to the latter parts of the letter where [Samuel] Konkin explicitly claims that there is nothing at all wrong with torture, cops, jails, chains, whips, etc. He says that, as Anarchists, people like myself should have no problem with such things per se, but should object to them only when people are jailed, whipped etc., by some state or government."--Fred Woodworth

"Think of Kerry denying he supported gay marriage -- and recognize that the same sort of people who thought that would win him support are now inside the control room at ClintonHQ"--Lawrence Lessig

"Today, institutionalized education is nothing more than an occupational army standing in a country formerly called education, and its main order is to prevent that something happens. It does not create something, it does not even try to teach anything. It only >shows the instruments< of today's society, the crude and cruel rules of sheer competition, and exterminates any spaces and processes that could get out of control, that could create something dangerous."--Christoph Spehr

"There is no liberty where the outcome is already determined; under such a presumptive and authoritarian logic, security always trumps freedom."--Michael

"As a practice, detournement reflected a contradiction between the recognition that fighting on the same terrain as the enemy is a seductive but inevitable trap, and the desire to occupy the buildings of power under a new name. This contradiction crystallized in the hijacking metaphor: detourne was a verb commonly used to describe the hijacking of a plane."--Joanne Richardson

"What we need to make clear is: in the war between [the] US and Islamists, between the two poles of terrorism, we do not need to support either. We must condemn both. We should form a third pole, a third voice to oppose both."--Azar Majedi

"Progressives have ceded the physical world to 'markets' and technocratic experts--never a good strategy. Technology has become a democracy-free zone."--Christopher Csikszentmihalyi

"There's nothing like having a good repository, and keeping a good lookout, not waiting at home for things to fall into the lap, but prowling about like a wolf for the prey."--Jeremy Belknap

"Every great advance in natural knowledge has involved the absolute rejection of authority."--Thomas Huxley

"If people who hold views that the candidate doesn't agree with, and they give to us, that's their loss."--a spokesperson for the Ron Paul campaign

"If all have plenty, then interaction can be of a solely noneconomic nature, and economics as a science is mere stupidity."--trhurler

"It is likely that genetic engineering will remain unpopular and controversial so long as it remains a centralized activity in the hands of large corporations."--Freeman Dyson

"the people who control institutions care first and foremost about their power within the institution rather than the power of the institution itself. Thus, they would rather the institution 'fail' while they remain in power within the institution than for the institution to 'succeed' if that requires them to lose power within the institution."--Jon Schwartz, quoted by Woody
