"If the anarchists were strong enough to swing the elections to the Left, they must also have been strong enough to rally the workers to a general strike or even a series of strikes all over Spain.

"In the last analysis the capitalist class knows too well that officials, whether they belong to the Right or the Left, can be bought. Or they are of no consequence to their pledge. Whereas strong and determined economic methods strike the capitalists in their most vulnerable spot: their material interests. That is the reason they dread the organized economic power of the workers. That is why they see in the general strike their deadly foe." -- Emma Goldman, Vision of Fire, pg 90

Rise of the robots at Amazon? John Markoff’s new book foresees fully automated fulfillment centers

Advances in machine perception and robotic dexterity could make it possible for humans to “disappear entirely” from Amazon’s fulfillment centers, writes veteran New York Times reporter John Markoff in a new book about the history and future of artificial intelligence, and the use of machines to augment humans.

"When we are dealing with the police as an institutional structure, we are not dealing with a group of individuals acting on their own personal feelings and judgments, but rather, with a group of functionaries who have, as part of the terms of their jobs, agreed to set their personal opinions and feelings aside and instead act as obedient agents of the state… Thus, if we are referring to “the police” as an institution, rather than the personal feelings of individual police, no, they are not “part of the 99%,” they are the enforcers of the 1%’s power." – David Graeber, PhD Professor of Anthropology Yale University

Even people such as Herbert Spencer, whom U.S. right-Libertarianism is heavily influenced by, used to understand the painfully obvious societal flaws of land ownership.

"Equity, therefore, does not permit property in land. For if one portion of the earth’s surface may justly become the possession of an individual, and may be held by him for his sole use and benefit, as a thing to which he has an exclusive right, then other portions of the earth’s surface may be so held; and eventually the whole of the earth’s surface may be so held; and our planet may thus lapse altogether into private hands. Observe now the dilemma to which this leads. Supposing the entire habitable globe to be so enclosed, it follows that if the landowners have a valid right to its surface, all who are not landowners, have no right at all to its surface. Hence, such can exist on the earth by sufferance only. They are all trespassers. Save by the permission of the lords of the soil, they can have no room for the soles of their feet. Nay, should the others think fit to deny them a resting-place, these landless men might equitably be expelled from the earth altogether." -- Herbert Spencer, Social Statics, Chapter IX

"People always ask me how can we charge so much for what amounts to gradations of white. I tell them it's not about the artist's name or the skill required, not even about the art itself. All that matters is... how does it make you feel?"

This scene changed my perspective on contemporary art.

One of the many arguments for why there is no such thing as a "good cop."

Introduction
"The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth."

"Man does not become man, nor does he achieve awareness or realization of his humanity, other than in society and in the collective movement of the whole society; he only shakes off the yoke of internal nature through collective or social labor... and without his material emancipation there can be no intellectual or moral emancipation for anyone... man in isolation can have no awareness of his liberty. Being free for man means being acknowledged, considered and treated as such by another man, and by all the men around him. Liberty is therefore a feature not of isolation but of interaction, not of exclusion but rather of connection... I myself am human and free only to the extent that I acknowledge the humanity and liberty of all my fellows... I am properly free when all the men and women about me are equally free. Far from being a limitation or a denial of my liberty, the liberty of another is its necessary condition and confirmation.

"The freedom of all is essential to my freedom."

- Mikhail Bakunin
