Five Public Quotes

BeepBeep! has tagged me for my five favourite quotes:

Hitler got the fascists sexually aroused. Flags, nations, armies, banks get a lot of people aroused (Gilles Deleuze)

There are no eternal facts, as there are no absolute truths. (Friedrich Nietzsche)

Morality is the herd-instinct in the individual. (Nietzsche again)

Enlightenment is man's emergence from his self-imposed immaturity. Immaturity is the inability to use one's understanding without guidance from another. This immaturity is self-imposed when its cause lies not in lack of understanding, but in lack of resolve and courage to use it without guidance from another. Sapere Aude! [dare to know] "Have courage to use your own understanding!"--that is the motto of enlightenment. (Immanuel Kant)

The strategic adversary is fascism... the fascism in us all, in our heads and in our everyday behavior, the fascism that causes us to love power, to desire the very thing that dominates and exploits us. (Michel Foucault)

I, in turn, tag LucyMikeyJacob and Simmo.
