[We Need To Make Some Dramatic, Concrete Moves To Escape The Materialism That Seeps Into Our Minds Via Diabolically Clever And Incessant Advertising. We Have Been Brainwashed To Believe That Bigger Houses, More Prosperous Businesses, And More Sophisticated Gadgets Are The Way To Joy And Fulfillment. As A Result, We Are Caught In An Absurd, Materialistic Spiral. The More We Make, The More We Think We Need In Order To Live Decently And Respectably. Somehow We Have To Break This Cycle Because It Makes Us Sin Against Our Needy Brothers And Sisters And, Therefore, Against Our Lord. And It Also Destroys Us. Sharing With Others Is The Way To Real Joy.]

Quotes About Being Sedated

"Not to know ones true identity is to be a mad, disensouled thing — a golem. And, indeed, this image, sick-eningly Orwellian, applies to the mass of human beings now living in the high-tech industrial democracies. Their authenticity lies in their ability to obey and follow mass style changes that are conveyed through the media. Immersed in junk food, trash media, and cryp-tofascist politics, they are condemned to toxic lives of low awareness. Sedated by the prescripted daily television fix, they are a living dead, lost to all but the act of consuming." - Author: Terence McKenna

And right up to the moment when you find yourself dissolving into foam you can still believe you are doing fine." - Author: Wallace Stegner

Quotes About Reminding Someone

"Before Summer RainSuddenly, from all the green around you,something-you dont know what-has disappeared;you feel it creeping closer to the window,in total silence. From the nearby woodyou hear the urgent whistling of a plover,reminding you of someones Saint Jerome:so much solitude and passion comefrom that one voice, whose fierce request the downpourwill grant. The walls, with their ancient portraits, glideaway from us, cautiously, as thoughthey werent supposed to hear what we are saying.And reflected on the faded tapestries now;the chill, uncertain sunlight of those longchildhood hours when you were so afraid" - Author: Rainer Maria Rilke
