#1. The program of the ruling elite in Orwell's 1984 was: "A foot stamping on a human face forever!" This is naive and optimistic. No species could survive for even a generation under such program. This is not a program of eternal, or even long-range dominance. It is clearly an extermination program. - Author: William S. Burroughs
Altrichter Elite quotes by William S. Burroughs
#2. Without an elite in the arts, we have no leaders, which is to say we have no vision, which is to say we have no arts. - Author: Robert Brustein
Altrichter Elite quotes by Robert Brustein
#3. I don't believe that the American dream should be reserved for those who are born into the elite or somehow have been given an advantage over others. My growing-up experience is probably the most important thing that guides my priorities and my work today. - Author: Ken Salazar
Altrichter Elite quotes by Ken Salazar
#4. [I]n addition to being a Spirit person, healer, and wisdom teacher, Jesus was a social prophet. There was passion in his language. Many of his sayings (as well as actions) challenged the domination system of his day. They take on pointed meaning when we see them in the context of social criticism of a peasant society. His criticisms of the wealthy were an indictment of the social class at the top of the domination system. His prophetic threats against Jerusalem and the temple were not because they were the center of an "old religion" (Judaism) soon to be replaced by a new religion (Christianity) but because they were the center of the domination system. His criticism of lawyers, scribes, and Pharisees was not because they were unvirtuous individuals but because commitment to the elites led them to see the social order through elite lenses.

Jesus rejected the sharp social boundaries of the established social order and challenged the institutions that legitimated it. In his teaching, he subverted distinctions between righteous and sinner, rich and poor, men and women, Pharisee and outcasts. In his healings and behavior, he crossed social boundaries of purity, gender, and class. In his meal practice, central to what he was about, he embodied a boundary-subverting inclusiveness.

In his itinerancy he rejected the notion of a brokered kingdom of God and enacted the immediacy of access to God apart from institutional mediation. His prophetic act against the mon - Author: Marcus J. Borg
Altrichter Elite quotes by Marcus J. Borg
#5. Luxury brands are about elite access. In consumer goods, that's elite cost. In education, it's elite criteria for admission. Minerva is maintaining those high standards, but not artificially limiting the number of people who can meet it ... This really may be redefining education. - Author: Kevin Harvey
Altrichter Elite quotes by Kevin Harvey
#6. The technotronic era involves the gradual appearance of a more controlled society. Such a society would be dominated by an elite, unrestrained by traditional values. Soon it will be possible to assert almost continuous surveillance over every citizen and maintain up-to-date complete files containing even the most personal information about the citizen. These files will be subject to instantaneous retrieval by the authorities. - Author: Zbigniew Brzezinski
Altrichter Elite quotes by Zbigniew Brzezinski
#7. Trilateralists look forward to a pseudo postnational age in which social, economic, and political values originating in the trilatleral regions are transformed into universal values. Expanding networks of like-minded governmental officials, businessmen, and technocrats - elite products of Western civilization - are to carry out national and international policy formation. Functionally specific institutions with 'more technical focus, and lesser public awareness' [italics mine] are best suited for addressing international issues in the trilateral model. Trilateralists call this decision making process 'piecemeal functionalism.' No comprehensive blueprints would be proposed and debated, but bit and bit the overall trilateral design would take shape. Its 'functional' components are to be adopted in more or less piecemeal fashion, lessening the chance people will grasp the overall scheme and organize resistance. - Author: Holly Sklar
Altrichter Elite quotes by Holly Sklar
#8. Jim Crow and mass incarceration have similar political origins...both caste systems were born in part, due to desire among white elites to exploit the resentments, vulnerabilities and racial biases of poor and working-class whites for political or economic gain. Segregation laws were proposed as part of a deliberate and strategic effort to deflect anger and hostility that have been brewing against the white elite away from them and toward African Americans. The birth of mass incarceration can be traced to a similar political dynamic. Conservatives in the 1960s and 1970s sought to appeal to the racial biases and economic vulnerabilities of poor and working-class whites through racially coded rhetoric on crime and welfare. In both cases, the racial opportunists offered few, if any, economic reforms to address the legitimate economic anxieties of poor and working-class whites, proposing instead a crackdown on the racially defined "others." In the early years of Jim Crow, conservative white elites competed with each other by passing ever more stringent and oppressive Jim Crow legislation. A century later, politicians in the early years of the drug war competed with each other to prove who could be tougher on crime by passing ever harsher drug laws- a thinly veiled effort to appeal to poor and working-class whites who, once again, proved they were willing to forego economic and structural reform in exchange for an apparent effort to put blacks back "in their place. - Author: Michelle Alexander
Altrichter Elite quotes by Michelle Alexander
#9. The male sphere of Norse shamanism consisted of the elite warrior groups known as the berserkir ("bear-shirts") and the úlfheðnar ("wolf-skins"). The berserkers (as we'll refer to the members of both of those groups for the sake of convenience), were shamans of a very different sort. After undergoing a period of rigorous training and initiation, they developed the ability to fight in an ecstatic trance that rendered them fearless - and, according to some sources, impervious to danger - while nevertheless inspiring a tremendous amount of fear in their opponents by their behavior, which was
at once animalistic and otherworldly. Perhaps needless to say, there was no ergi associated with being a berserker. Quite the opposite, in fact - the berserker was seen as something of a model of manliness. - Author: Daniel McCoy
Altrichter Elite quotes by Daniel McCoy
#10. The poor serve the elite, and they have too much fear to stop. So the poor get poorer, and the elite stay safe and powerful. - Author: Chelsie Shock
Altrichter Elite quotes by Chelsie Shock
#11. We're not talking about an elite art form from the price point of view. We have a building in L.A. that is incredibly open, exciting, inviting, and all that, and there's no reason for this music not to be part of everybody's everyday life. - Author: Esa-Pekka Salonen
Altrichter Elite quotes by Esa-Pekka Salonen
#12. [ ... ] elite social engineers appear to be aiming at a "hetero-homo" world, i.e. where individuals are bisexual, promiscuous and bereft of family. - Author: Henry Makow
Altrichter Elite quotes by Henry Makow
#13. in the absence of a biblical morality a new elite will always come forward to dictate arbitrary absolutes to society - Author: Francis A. Schaeffer
Altrichter Elite quotes by Francis A. Schaeffer
#14. The root cause, simply put, is globalization, and the resulting monopolization of wealth by a global elite. - Author: Paul Mason
Altrichter Elite quotes by Paul Mason
#15. I stood up to the liberal elite when they came to our state (Alabama) and tried to eliminate the death penalty, we won, they lost. - Author: Troy King
Altrichter Elite quotes by Troy King
#16. But in the years to come, as Muslim prestige and learning sank, and Hindu confidence, wealth, education and power increased, Hindus and Muslims would grow gradually apart, as British policies of divide and rule found willing collaborators among the chauvinists of both faiths. The rip in the closely woven fabric of Delhi's composite culture, opened in 1857, slowly widened into a great gash, and at Partition in 1947 finally broke in two. As the Indian Muslim elite emigrated en masse to Pakistan, the time would soon come when it would be almost impossible to imagine that Hindu sepoys could ever have rallied to the Red Fort and the standard of a Muslim emperor, joining with their Muslim brothers in an attempt to revive the Mughal Empire. - Author: William Dalrymple
Altrichter Elite quotes by William Dalrymple
#17. You can have a lot of political "change" in the United States, but will it really change that much? Will it change the amount of money in someone's bank account? Will it change contracts? Will it void contracts that already exist? And contracts on contracts? And contracts on contracts on contracts? Not really. So I say that free speech in many Western places is free not as a result of liberal circumstances but rather as a result of such intense fiscalization that it doesn't matter what you say. The dominant elite doesn't have to be scared of what people think, because a change in political view is not going to change whether they own their company or not; it is not going to change whether they own a piece of land or not. But China is still a political society, although it is rapidly heading toward a fiscalized society. And other societies, like Egypt, are still heavily politicized. Their rulers really do need to be concerned about what people think, so they expend proportionate efforts on controlling freedom of speech.

But I think young people actually innately have fairly good values. Of course it's a spectrum, but they have fairly good values most of the time and they want to demonstrate them to other people, and you can see this when people first go to university. They become hardened as a result of certain things having a payoff and other things not having a payoff. - Author: Julian Assange
Altrichter Elite quotes by Julian Assange
#18. FDR rejected Hamilton's focus on the needs of an economic elite in favor of «jefferson's focus on the needs and interst of the common man.

Altrichter Elite quotes by Calvin C. Jillson
#19. I know where a lot of them [the elite or elitists] live.
Where's that?
Well, in our nation's capital and New York City. I've seen it. I've lived there. - Author: John McCain
Altrichter Elite quotes by John McCain
#20. Westernization, coupled with globalization, has created an affluent and leisured elite that now gravitates to universities, the media, bureaucracies, and world organizations, all places where wealth is not created, but analyzed, critiqued, and lavishly spent. - Author: Victor Davis Hanson
Altrichter Elite quotes by Victor Davis Hanson
#21. Middle-class Americans might be invited to join a new elite by attacks against the corruption of the established rich. The New Yorker Cadwallader Colden, in his Address to the Freeholders in 1747, attacked the wealthy as tax dodgers unconcerned with the welfare of others (although he himself was wealthy) and spoke for the honesty and dependability of "the midling rank of mankind" in whom citizens could best trust "our liberty & Property." This was to become a critically important rhetorical device for the rule of the few, who would speak to the many of "our" liberty, "our" property, "our" country. - Author: Howard Zinn
Altrichter Elite quotes by Howard Zinn
#22. Propaganda invariably serves the long-term interests of some elite. - Author: John Berger
Altrichter Elite quotes by John Berger
#23. Just as in sports, becoming an elite performer in business requires struggle, sacrifice, and honest (often painful) self-assessment... Learning how to implement these approaches is often what separates a brilliant thinker from a creative want-to-be. - Author: G. Michael Maddock
Altrichter Elite quotes by G. Michael Maddock
#24. If you are for gun control, then you are not against guns, because the guns will be needed to disarm people. So it's not that you are anti-gun. You'll need the police's guns to take away other people's guns. So you're very Pro-Gun, you just believe that only the Government (which is, of course, so reliable, honest, moral and virtuous ... ) should be allowed to have guns. There is no such thing as gun control. There is only centralizing gun ownership in the hands of a small, political elite and their minions. - Author: Stefan Molyneux
Altrichter Elite quotes by Stefan Molyneux
#25. Naruto-kun, I understand your feelings so much that it hurts. But the fighting should occur in the matches.
Whether a loser can defeat an elite through the power of hardwork. That's something to look forward to in the main test... Though his opponent might be me. But even if it's you, Naruto-kun, there will be no hard feelings. - Author: Masashi Kishimoto
Altrichter Elite quotes by Masashi Kishimoto
#26. We have something special ... a culture which we do not think of as something for the elite, but as something which is accessible to practically everybody. - Author: Frederick Lewis Allen
Altrichter Elite quotes by Frederick Lewis Allen
#27. At the head of peoples, above the elite, one finds the monarchy. I reject the republic.
...Not all of the monarchs were good. Monarchy itself, however, has always been good. One must not confuse the man with the institution and draw false conclusions. There can be bad priests; but can we, because of this, conclude that the Church must be abolished and God stoned to death? There are weak and bad monarchs, certainly, but we cannot renounce monarchy because of this. ...

To each nation God has traced a line of destiny. A monarch is great and good when he stays on that line; he is small or bad, to the extent that he wanders away from this line of destiny or opposes it. This then, is the law of monarchy. There are also other lines that may tempt a monarch: the line of personal interest or that of a class of people or group; the line of alien interests (domestic or foreign). He must avoid all these lines and follow that of his people. - Author: Corneliu Zelea Codreanu
Altrichter Elite quotes by Corneliu Zelea Codreanu
#28. We were born into a peace of plenty, a pleasure-economy, a bonobo masturbation society. The future that our elite handlers have in store for us advertises more of the same. More detached pleasure, less risk, freedom from want, more masturbation. - Author: Jack Donovan
Altrichter Elite quotes by Jack Donovan
#29. The difference between a kleptocrat and a wise statesman, between a robber baron and a public benefactor, is merely one of degree: a matter of just how large a percentage of the tribute extracted from producers is retained by the elite, and how much the commoners like the public uses to which the redistributed tribute is put. - Author: Jared Diamond
Altrichter Elite quotes by Jared Diamond
#30. I would like Britain - and indeed other countries - to be run in the interests of people's needs and aspirations, rather than on the basis of profit for a small elite; for democracy to be democratically managed by working people; for democracy to be extended as far as possible, including in the workplace and the economy. - Author: Owen Jones
Altrichter Elite quotes by Owen Jones
#31. You have a political and media elite who have an idiom by which they describe politics. It's highly, highly polarised. It's right, left, red, blue, up, down, victorious, crushed. - Author: Nick Clegg
Altrichter Elite quotes by Nick Clegg

Altrichter Elite quotes by Questlove

"E.D.G.E.," he said, helping him to the waiting helicopter. "Elite Digital and Global Enforcement."

"That's the idea," the man said with a grin. - Author: Trish Loye
Altrichter Elite quotes by Trish Loye

Altrichter Elite quotes by Amanda Peet

Altrichter Elite quotes by Vikas Swarup
#36. We spend a lot of time thinking about the ways that prestige and resources and belonging to elite institutions make us better off. We don't spend enough time thinking about the ways in which those kinds of material advantages limit our options. - Author: Malcolm Gladwell
Altrichter Elite quotes by Malcolm Gladwell
#37. The artist creates his own elite, and the elite its own artists. - Author: E.H. Gombrich
Altrichter Elite quotes by E.H. Gombrich
#38. It is our great collective misfortune that the scientific community made its decisive diagnosis of the climate threat at the precise moment when an elite minority was enjoying more unfettered political, cultural, and intellectual power than at any point since the 1920s. - Author: Naomi Klein
Altrichter Elite quotes by Naomi Klein
#39. Oh, now my Erin, she'd smile down on me no matter where I walked." Grandpop smiled that little smile again. "But I'd be separated from her, and I'd feel that separation in my soul, you see?"
Nathan shook his head.
Grandpop sighed. "You have the Irish eyes, boy. One of these days, you'll see from eyes, not your own, feel with a heart outside your chest. Wild Irish eyes. Nathan. When you love, love well and love true, and take care, lad, because those Irish eyes are windows into not just your own soul, but the soul of the one you love." Grandpop looked out at his Erin's grave.
"And when you lose that heart, you can't leave the places where your memories are the best. And if I left her, I'd not be buried beside her. - Author: Lora Leigh
Altrichter Elite quotes by Lora Leigh
#40. An elite confederacy of nerds. My peeps - Author: Kathy Reichs
Altrichter Elite quotes by Kathy Reichs
#41. I matched him glare for glare and refused to back down. I'd learnt that much, working with the guys we recruited for protection work. Forget your average heavy ... we used the elite. Ex-commandos used to living behind enemy lines on nothing more than fresh air and dung beetles, and who could zero in on a target using mouse farts three miles away. - Author: Mina Carter
Altrichter Elite quotes by Mina Carter
#42. Physically as well as psychologically, Dickinson was the opposite of Adams: tall and gaunt, with a somewhat ashen complexion and a deliberate demeanor that conveyed the confidence of his social standing in the Quaker elite and his legal training at the Inns of Court in London. - Author: Joseph J. Ellis
Altrichter Elite quotes by Joseph J. Ellis
#43. The earthquake in Haiti was a class-based catastrophe. It didn't much harm the wealthy elite up in the hills, they were shaken but not destroyed. On the other hand the people who were living in the miserable urban slums, huge numbers of them, they were devastated. Maybe a couple hundred thousand were killed. How come they were living there? They were living there because of-it goes back to the French colonial system-but in the past century, they were living there because of US policies, consistent policies. - Author: Noam Chomsky
Altrichter Elite quotes by Noam Chomsky
#44. Every year I just kept going back to gymnastics, but I didn't start out training 10 hours a day. When I turned 10 or 11, I got more serious and I focused a lot on making it to the elite level, and from there I just kept going. - Author: Shawn Johnson
Altrichter Elite quotes by Shawn Johnson
#45. ...[A]s you read opinions and history in school about 2004... I want you to know... that going to this war was right. No matter what you hear 20 years from now by elite media and historians, things get distorted... Just like Vietnam, I fear OIF (Operation Iraqi Freedom) will be abused in the same way. Just as you hear more about American soldiers in Vietnam raping women and children and shooting unarmed men, today the media is focused about this detainee debacle for two weeks solid, in contrast to American Soldiers being dragged in the streets and dismembered, which was covered for less than 72 hours. I am part of the Special Operations Forces elite... We are harder than anyone at these detention centers and let me tell you, we treat these guys with the utmost professionalism. We do not hit them, we don't humiliate them or cause them any bodily harm for the purpose of entertainment. As a Christian, one assumes great compassion... This is WAR and treated very seriously. People are being killed and it is our job to get information... The humanity in me wants me to warm them, tell them their family is okay, feed them, and even embrace them in a loving way... Most, even in my stature, feel the same way. This is the American Soldier. - Author: Eric Blehm
Altrichter Elite quotes by Eric Blehm
#46. [The courts and the media elite] are abolishing America, they are deconstructing our country ... they have dethroned our God. - Author: Pat Buchanan
