"A purpose of human life, no matter who is controlling it, is to love whoever is around to be loved."
— Kurt Vonnegut, The Sirens of Titan
"The condition of alienation, of being asleep, of being unconscious, of being out of one’s mind, is the condition of the normal man. Society highly values its normal man. It educates children to lose themselves and to become absurd, and thus to be normal. Normal men have killed perhaps 100,000,000 of their fellow normal men in the last fifty years."
R.D. Laing, Politics of Experience
"The further a society drifts from the truth, the more it will hate those who speak it"
— George Orwell
