A Quote by Thom Yorke on politics, greed, economics, environmentalism, genocide, law, destruction, spiritual, sneakers, human rights, china, violation, malls, capitalism, tesco, hands, and dirty

"It's just the law governing western politics pure blind greed - economics is an unquestionable sacred law above all humane considerations (is this just me), it is a justification for slave labour, genocide, environmental and spiritual destruction. Everyone wants their cheap sneakers and bloody stupid keyrings and plasticware above all else, and are happy to leave China unchecked, happy to condone their blatant violation of human rights. After all how can we justify our cathedral-like shopping malls and rusting capitalist monoliths, other than finding the next oppressed population and get them on the payroll? "Thank you Tesco, thank you Tesco." All our hands are dirty."

A Quote by Ken Wilbur on theory, everything, physics, economics, history, dynamics, wars, and poetry

What would it mean if there were a theory that explained everything? And just what does "everything" actually mean, anyway? Would this new theory in physics explain, say the meaning of human poetry? Or how economics work? Or the stages of psychosexual development? Can this new physics explain the currents of ecosystems, or the dynamics of history, or why human wars are so terribly common?

A Quote by Kenneth Smith on philosophy, america, education, freedom, democracy, will, politics, and economics

American democracy is a chess-game in which pawns imagine themselves to be free individuals with wills of their own: that delusion is one of the rules of the game, without which the game could not continue. I doubt anyone, no matter how sharp and sharp-tongued, could succeed in getting across to high school students how vital an acute mind is for just keeping a grip on one's life and earnings in our mendacious politics and economics. No wonder our school system is devoutly dedicated to demoralizing and blunting such minds.

A Quote by Kenneth Smith on philosophy, capitalism, depressions, cycles, politics, and economics

If you like capitalism, you will positively love depressions, because they are one and the same, like manic-depressives and their cycles, like spouse-abusers and their storms of violence.

A Quote by Ludwig von Mises on gdp, national product, national income, economics, inflation, purchasing power, and money

The illusiveness of this concept of national income is to be seen in its dependence on changes in the purchasing power of the monetary unit. The more inflation progresses, the higher rises the national income.

A Quote by Earon on belief, disbelief, critical thinking, novels, films, politics, economics, technology, religion, suspending disbelief, and uncritical acceptance

"The price of temporarily suspending our disbelief while reading novels and viewing films is small.  The price of suspending our disbelief (turning off our critical thinking) in matters of politics, economics, technology and religion is immense.
