"What civilization is is 6 billion people trying to make themselves happy by standing on each others shoulders and kicking each others teeth in. It’s not a pleasant situation and yet you can stand back and look at this planet and see that we have the money, the power, the medical understanding, the scientific know how, the love and the community to produce a kind of paradise but we are led by the least among us, the least intelligent, the least noble, the least visionary; we are lead by the least among us and we do not fight back against the dehumanising values that are handed down as control-like concepts.
This is something, I mean I don’t really want to get off on this tear because it’s a lecture in itself but… Culture is not our friend. Culture is for other peoples convenience, and the conveniences of other institutions, churches, companies, tax collection schemes, what have you. It is not your friend. It insults you. It disempowers you. It uses and abuses you. None of us are well treated by culture and yet we glorify the creative potential of the individual, the rights of the individual, we understand the felt presence of experience which is most important but the culture is a perversion. It fetishises objects, it creates consumer mania, it preaches endless forms of fales happiness, endless forms of false understanding in the form of squirrelly religion and silly cults. It invites people to diminish themselves, and dehumanise themselves by behaving like machines, meme processors of memes passed down from Madison Avenue and Hollywood and what have you.”
Nobody came harder on this.
