"You make it worth while, bibliophile!"- Shake-it-peers


“Those of us who love reading and writing believe that being a writer is a sacred trust. It means telling the truth. It means being incorruptible. It means not being afraid, and never lying.” Andrea Dworkin


"The linguistification of social power relations gives to every individual the possibility of contradicting power, fate and life...of criticizing, accusing,and cursing...when power becomes linguistic it is compelled to operate under the conditions of equality...whether it wishes to or not." Boris Groys

Let every wasted seed of desire

become a beautiful flower

watch it unfold hour by hour

rising higher and higher

we pay for our lives with our deaths

in between we are free

Yo! Yo!

The "new barbarians" will shake the very foundations of the empire with a creativity of a new society in the makings. They are the new historical subjects, now emerging side by side with those, who in the bowels of the existing society, mobilize and struggle for a different social order.

In the Wake of the Affluent Society: An Exploration of Post Development p.123 by Serge Latouche a Brazilian Sociologist.

"…we had been so wiped out by our visions of love and universal truth that we were blinded to the real nature of the death culture and we just couldn’t believe it when Babylon refused to melt away in the face of the colossal wave of good feeling we had let loose on Amerika. …This wasn’t quite what we expected, and it knocked most of us right off our feet, and we still haven’t recovered from the shock of finding out that the world wasn’t going to change just because that was the best thing for it."

~ John Sinclair, “Liberation Music,” June-July 1970 as quoted from the Occupy Wall Street Library.
