Quotations

The spoliation of the churches property, the fraudulent alienation of the State domains, the robbery of the common lands, the usurpation of feudal and clan property, and its transformation into modern private property under circumstances of reckless terrorism, were just so many idyllic methods of primitive accumulation

Karl Marx

being cannot be separated from thinking, humanity from nature, activity from matter, subject from object; if one carries out this separation, one falls into one of the many forms of religion or into senseless abstraction

Antonio Gramsci

the world can only exist as nature for a being that does not belong there

Tim Ingold

the exercise of power and the securing of domination ultimately depends…on the equation of popular consent. This is consent, not simply to the interests and purposes but also to the interpretations and representations of social reality generated by those who control the mental, as well as the material, means of social reproduction

Stuart Hall

To denounce hierarchy does not get us anywhere. What must be changed are the conditions that make this hierarchy exist, both in reality and in minds.

Pierre Bourdieu

We do not realise the sky is falling until a piece of it falls on us

Margaret Atwood

In nature’s economy the currency is not money, it is life.

Vandana Shiva

All human experience teaches that methods and means cannot be separated from the ultimate aim. The means employed become, through individual habit and social  practice, part and parcel of the final purpose; they influence it, modify it, and  presently the aims
and means become identical

Emma Goldman
