Favorite Collectives Quotes

1. "I wonder of what you must daily endure in America, having no government to protect you, no one to tell you what to do. Is it true you're given no ration card, that you must find food for yourself? Is it true that you labor for no higher purpose than paper money? What is California, this place you come from? I have never seen a picture. What plays over the American loudspeakers, when is your curfew, what is taught at your child-rearing collectives? Where does a woman go with her children on Sunday afternoons, and if a woman loses her husband, how does she know the government will assign her a good replacement? With whom would she curry favor to ensure her children got the best Youth Troop leader?"
Author: Adam Johnson
2. "Le bonheur individuel se doit de produire des retombées collectives, faute de quoi, la société n'est qu'un rêve de prédateur."
Author: Daniel Pennac
3. "Malgré les fanatiques, il serait extrêmement dangereux d'importer en France la thèse d'un «choc de civilisations» entre le monde musulman et nous. Ne faisons pas de l'Islam le miroir où toutes nos difformités s'effacent. Ne renouvelons pas l'erreur de nous forger un ennemi pour éviter de nous interroger sur nous-mêmes.Or, quel modèle proposons-nous ? Un monde dominé par l'argent et le sexe. Des sociétés dépolitisées, sans défense contre la montée des communautarismes. Des sociétés délaïcisées, où sévit l'alliance explosive de la religion et de la techno-science. Il nous faut retrouver une parole libre. Désigner haut et fort la menace que font peser les communautés, les identités collectives, les religions — toutes les religions —, sur la paix civile et la liberté individuelle. Refuser le scandale d'une pensée asservie à des dogmes. Osons être en toutes choses des athées résolus, méthodiques et gais."
Author: Danièle Sallenave
4. "When religious groups in a conflict eliminate the personal element and perceive themselves as representatives of collectives, heir actions tend to become more "radical" and "merciless." (Ch.3, by Jaco Cilliers, p. 48)"
Author: David R. Smock
5. "Eroding solidarity paradoxically makes a society more susceptible to the construction of substitute collectives and fascisms of all kinds."
Author: Elfriede Jelinek

Today's Quote

The idea that we cause harm by doing what we perceive to be the right thing, that's another theme that interests me. Because most people don't intend to cause harm, they cause harm by doing the right thing - in their mind."
