As naturally as the ruled always took the morality imposed upon them more seriously than did the rulers themselves, the deceived masses are today captivated by the myth of success even more than the successful are. Immovably, they insist on the very ideology which enslaves them. The misplaced love of the common people for the wrong which is done to them is a greater force than the cunning of the authorities.
The president has listened to some people, the so-called Vulcans in the White House, the ideologues. But you know, unlike the Vulcans of Star Trek who made the decisions based on logic and fact, these guys make it on ideology. These aren't Vulcans. There are Klingons in the White House. But unlike the real Klingons of Star Trek, these Klingons have never fought a battle of their own. Don't let faux Klingons send real Americans to war.
...the years have taught me not to wonder too much at the dark things men do. Strange how it is that men never act crueller than when they're fighting for the sake of an idea. We've been killing since Cain over who stands closer to god. It seems to me that cruelty is just in the way of things. You drive yourself mad if you take it all personal. Those who hurt you don't have the power over you they would like. That's why they do what they do. And I'm not going to give them the power now. But it was a cruel thing that they did, and when they had finished hurting me, a splinter of loneliness seemed to break off and stay inside me forever.
As soon as you look at the world through an ideology you are finished. No reality fits an ideology. Life is beyond that. That is why people are always searching for a meaning to life Meaning is only found when you go beyond meaning. Life only makes sense when you perceive it as mystery and it makes no sense to the conceptualizing mind.
During my lifetime I have dedicated myself to this struggle of the African people. I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. It is an ideal which I hope to live for and to achieve. But if needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die.
E nevoie de un du?man ca s?-i dai poporului o speran??. Cineva a spus c? patriotismul e ultimul refugiu al canaliilor: cine nu are principii morale se înf??oar? de obicei într-un steag, iar bastarzii fac întotdeauna apel la puritatea stirpei lor. Identitatea na?ional? este ultima resurs? a dezmo?teni?ilor. Or, sim?ul identit??ii se întemeiaz? pe ur?, ura împotriva celui ce nu-i identic. Trebuie s? cultivi ura ca patos cet??enesc. Du?manul e prietenul popoarelor. E nevoie oricând de cineva demn de a fi urât ca s? te sim?i justificat în propria-?i mizerie. Ura este adev?rata pasiune primordial?. Iubirea reprezint? o situa?ie anormal?.
