Friday Quote- Larken Rose

I’m not scared of the Maos and the Stalins and the Hitlers. I’m scared of the thousands or millions of people that hallucinate them to be the “authority” and so do their bidding, and build their empires, and carry out their orders. I don’t care if there’s one looney with a stupid mustache. He’s not a threat if the people do not believe in “authority.”

Friday Quote – Leonard Peikoff

The universe is neutral; it simply is; it is indifferent to you. You must care about, and adapt to it, not the other way around. But reality is ‘benevolent’ in the sense that if you do adapt to it – i.e., if you do think, value, and act rationally, then you can (and barring accidents you will) achieve your values. You will, because those values are based in reality.

Friday Quote – Aldous Huxley

There will be, in the next generation or so, a pharmacological method of making people love their servitude, and producing dictatorship without tears, so to speak, producing a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies, so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them, but will rather enjoy it, because they will be distracted from any desire to rebel by propaganda or brainwashing, or brainwashing enhanced by pharmacological methods. And this seems to be the final revolution.
