"Remember, terrorism is the surgical strike capability of the oppressed!"
~T-shirt Terrorist, Slacker
“We need another and a wiser and perhaps a more mystical concept of animals. Remote from universal nature, and living by complicated artifice, man in civilization surveys the creature through the glass of his knowledge and sees thereby a feather magnified and the whole image in distortion. We patronize them for their incompleteness, for their tragic fate of having taken form so far below ourselves. And therein we err, and greatly err. For the animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older and more complete than ours they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear. They are not brethren, they are not underlings; they are other nations caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendour and travail of the earth.”
~Henry Beston (and it's in Earthlings, though I actually heard it first on Gather's album...)
"Feminism is the radical notion that women are human beings."
'All is for all! If the man and the woman bear their fair share of work, they have a right to their fair share of all that is produced by all, and that share is enough to secure them well-being. No more of such vague formulas as "The Right to work," or "To each the whole result of his labour." What we proclaim is THE RIGHT TO WELL-BEING: WELL-BEING FOR ALL!'
~Peter Kropotkin, 'The Conquest of Bread'
"Beauty plus pity — that is the closest we can get to a definition of art."
"You would think that pot had some kind of power; I mean come on, it’s a
plant, not a reason for living. Controlled by a plant, how hilarious. A
plant! A ****ing plant!"
~ Henry Rollins
In this grand illusion of entitlement to life / Our 'need' is a mask for our greed and it's not right /
We are executioners who parade ourselves as kings / As selfish and deluded as the blood-bathed Bathory. ~Kingdom, 'Bathory' xVx
