In an unenlightened society some people are forced to play degrading social roles; in an enlightened society, everyone is.
Society expresses its sympathy for the geniuses of the past to distract attention from the fact that it has no intention of being sympathetic to the geniuses of the present.
Society is everybody's way of punishing one another because they daren't take it out on the universe.
Society is a self-regulating mechanism for preventing the fulfilment of its members.
Education by the State is a contradiction in terms. Intellectual development is only possible to those who have seen through society.
That society exists to frustrate the individual may be seen from its attitude to work. It is only morally acceptable if you do not want to do it. If you want to, it becomes a personal pleasure.
