#1. It's a revolution. But it's the sort of revolution that no one will notice. It might get a little shadier. Buildings might function better. You might have less money to earn because your food is all around you and you don't have any energy costs. Giant amounts of money might be freed up in society so that we can provide for ourselves better ... So it's a revolution. But permaculture is anti-political. There is no room for politicians or administrators or priests. And there are no laws either. The only ethics we obey are: care of the earth, care of people, and reinvestment in those ends. - Author: Bill Mollison
Anti Political quotes by Bill Mollison
#2. If libertarianism were easy to explain, and it weren't easy to exaggerate the effects of libertarianism, I think it would have been done already. Many many very intelligent people have applied themselves to crafting an agenda that people could grab ahold of. But the problem of course is that libertarianism isn't political. It is kind of anti-political. It wants to take a lot of things out of the political arena. - Author: P. J. O'Rourke
Anti Political quotes by P. J. O'Rourke
#3. Violence, of course, is generally associated with frankly totalitarian forms of anti-political utopianism like Communism, but the Second World War shows that liberal universalists are as capable of violence as Communists. They are just less capable of honesty. - Author: Greg Johnson
Anti Political quotes by Greg Johnson
#4. The concept of "microaggression" is just one of many tactics used to stifle differences of opinion by declaring some opinions to be "hate speech," instead of debating those differences in a marketplace of ideas. To accuse people of aggression for not marching in lockstep with political correctness is to set the stage for justifying real aggression against them. - Author: Thomas Sowell
Anti Political quotes by Thomas Sowell
#5. Politics is the art of making your selfish desires seem like the national interest. - Author: Thomas Sowell
Anti Political quotes by Thomas Sowell
#6. Political action involves mental vulgarity, not merely because it entails the occurrence and support of those who are mentally vulgar, but because of the simplification of human life implied in even the best of it purposes. - Author: Michael Joseph Oakeshott
Anti Political quotes by Michael Joseph Oakeshott
#7. It's time for students to learn that Life is Triggering. Once they leave college, they'll be constantly exposed to views that challenge or offend them. There are a lot of jerks out there, and no matter what your politics are, a lot of people will have the opposite view. - Author: Jerry A. Coyne
Anti Political quotes by Jerry A. Coyne
#8. It would be nice to spend billions on schools and roads, but right now that money is desperately needed for political ads. - Author: Andy Borowitz
Anti Political quotes by Andy Borowitz
#9. What were he and his friends doing, really, other than hanging from a branch, sticking their tongues out to catch the sweetness? He thought about the people he knew, with their excellent young bodies, their summerhouses, their cool clothes, their potent drugs, their liberalism, their orgasms, their haircuts. Everything they did was either pleasurable in itself or engineered to bring pleasure down the line. Even the people he knew who were "political" and who protested the war in El Salvador did so largely in order to bathe themselves in an attractively crusading light. And the artists were the worst, the painters and the writers, because they believed they were living for art when they were really feeding their narcissism. Mitchell had always prided himself on his discipline. He studied harder than anyone he knew. But that was just his way of tightening his grip on the branch. - Author: Jeffrey Eugenides
Anti Political quotes by Jeffrey Eugenides
#10. What is a political party but a conspiracy? - Author: Gore Vidal
Anti Political quotes by Gore Vidal
#11. I don't think people have fully processed how deeply television has changed the political process in our own world. Political parties have become vestiges of what they were and individuals with large amounts of money can leapfrog over that process, which can have a positive mediating effect. And so I think there are things to worry about. - Author: Alexander Stille
Anti Political quotes by Alexander Stille
#12. Acting is a business and a political act and a craft, but I also feel like it's a service - specifically, for a military audience. - Author: Adam Driver
Anti Political quotes by Adam Driver
#13. Lying there, I thought of my own culture, of the assembly of books in the library at Alexandria; of the deliberations of Darwin and Mendel in their respective gardens; of the architectural conception of the cathedral at Chartres; of Bach's cello suites, the philosophy of Schweitzer, the insights of Planck and Dirac. Have we come all this way, I wondered, only to be dismantled by our own technologies, to be betrayed by political connivance or the impersonal avarice of a corporation? - Author: Barry Lopez
Anti Political quotes by Barry Lopez
#14. Dodd continued to hope that the murders would so outrage the German public that the regime would fall, but as the days passed he saw no evidence of any such outpouring of anger ... - Author: Erik Larson
Anti Political quotes by Erik Larson
#15. I don't think any responsible performer would go on stage high. If he convinced himself he is better that way, he is deluding himself. - Author: Oliver
Anti Political quotes by Oliver
#16. Women tend to give political candidates only about 10 percent of what males give, and males give women candidates only 10 percent of what they give to males. - Author: Maureen Reagan
Anti Political quotes by Maureen Reagan
#17. Feminism, which is supposedly for everybody, apparently has no place for conservative women. Why would feminists need to exclude entire swaths of the population? Because they know their ideology cannot stand up to challenges, they know they themselves do not understand it, and they know that to accomplish their goals they cannot allow discussion to occur....To pretend that your ideology is impenetrable and the obvious answer to modern social problems and then to turn around and exclude people from the discussion only creates more holes in the theories themselves and serves to demonstrate the liberal superiority complex. - Author: Chris Sardegna
Anti Political quotes by Chris Sardegna
#18. People who pronounce themselves in favor of the method of legislative reform in place of and in contradistinction to the conquest of political power and social revolution, do not really choose a more tranquil, calmer and slower road to the same goal, but a different goal. Instead of taking a stand for the establishment of a new society they take a stand for surface modifications of the old society. . . . Our program becomes not the realization of Socialism, but the reform of capitalism not the suppression of the system of wage labor, but the diminution of exploitation, that is, the suppression of the abuses of capitalism instead of the suppression of capitalism itself. - Author: Rosa Luxemburg
Anti Political quotes by Rosa Luxemburg
#19. This weekend the Conservative Political Action Conference, CPAC, featured several speakers including Sarah Palin and Phil Robertson from 'Duck Dynasty.' It was a good weekend for conservatives - and a great weekend for wild animals. - Author: Jimmy Fallon
Anti Political quotes by Jimmy Fallon
#20. Political battles are won when the rich favor them. - Author: Alex Pareene
Anti Political quotes by Alex Pareene
#21. When extraordinary power and extraordinary pay are allotted to any individual in a government, he becomes the center, round which every kind of corruption generates and forms. - Author: Thomas Paine
Anti Political quotes by Thomas Paine
#22. I still have a great deal of faith in our political system and a great deal of faith in the American people and voter. - Author: Sharron Angle
Anti Political quotes by Sharron Angle
#23. If you can't lead and you can't deliver, then your own personal political philosophy is pretty much irrelevant, there have been far too many occasions over the last four years where the House has been ineffective. - Author: Rich Nugent
Anti Political quotes by Rich Nugent
#24. Mosul, the native city of the historian Ibn al-Athir, was the capital of Jazira, or Mesopotamia, the fertile plain watered by the two great rivers Tigris and Euphrates. It was a political, cultural, and economic centre of prime importance. The Arabs boasted of its succulent fruit: its apples, pears, grapes, and pomegranates. The fine cloth it exported - called 'muslin', a word derived from the city's name - was known throughout the world. At the time of the arrival of the Franj, the people of the emir Karbuqa's realm were already exploiting another natural resource, which the traveller Ibn Jubayr was to describe with amazement a few dozen years later: deposits of naphtha. This precious dark liquid, which would one day make the fortune of this part of the world, already offered travellers an unforgettable spectacle. - Author: Amin Maalouf
Anti Political quotes by Amin Maalouf
#25. It came to me, as we sat there, glumly ordering lunch, that for extremely stupid people anti-Semitism was a form of intellectuality, the sole form of intellectuality of which they were capable. It represented, in a rudimentary way, the ability to make categories, to generalize. - Author: Mary McCarthy
Anti Political quotes by Mary McCarthy
#26. In your opinion, where do private and political life, personal history and History meet? You know the answer, Maya. You say it unhesitatingly - in art and literature. - Author: Abdourahman A. Waberi
Anti Political quotes by Abdourahman A. Waberi
#27. Some will no doubt find this acontecimiento del vivir of no special consequence. . . . For me, it is merely the poetic/political of a road well travelled; a humble,creative and retrospective recording to share with the world. - Preface of Sorts, 12/08/81, 6:00 a.m. - Author: Raúl R. Salinas (raúlrsalinas)
Anti Political quotes by Raúl R. Salinas (raúlrsalinas)
#28. What is it like to be made vice-president?
On one level, it's a nearly hallucinatory degree of success. I was barely forty years old, and a shaky, sixty-three-year-old heartbeat from the leadership of the entire Western world.
It was also like throwing up in convention-hall bathrooms before giving speeches, and after. It was sitting through dinners with men and women with whom I had nothing in common. Spending an enormous amount of time on trains. Promising thins and agreeing to things as advised by people I had barely met, on very little sleep. Huge sums of money were changing hands and everything happening on the grandest scale imaginable while still in most moments remaining pointless and usually outright seedy. I pretended to learn to fly-fish; I watched sporting events. In Maine I was assaulted by a lobster; it seized my lapel in a threatening manner. I tasted local foods and admired factories,farms, department stores, hotels, and (unless I'm misremembering) several empty plots of land....
It was like being given what was almost the nation's highest honor by a man you held in infinite esteem and regarded with perhaps a certain amount of terrified suspicion, a man who disliked you and clearly wanted nothing to do with you, who would scowl and change the subject at the mention of your name. And then being given a very important and very nasty job by that person, and despised for it, almost as much as you despised yourself. - Author: Austin Grossman
Anti Political quotes by Austin Grossman
#29. Not wishing to be disturbed over moral issues of the political economy, Americans cling to the notion that the government is a sort of automatic machine, regulated by the balancing of competing interests. - Author: C. Wright Mills
Anti Political quotes by C. Wright Mills
#30. Americans tend to prefer their presidents on horseback: heroes who dream big and sound trumpets. There is, however, another kind of leader – quieter and less glamorous but no less significant – whose virtues repay our attention. There is greatness in political lives dedicated more to steadiness than to boldness, more to reform than to revolution, more to management of complexity than to the making of mass movements. - Author: Jon Meacham
Anti Political quotes by Jon Meacham
#31. It's time to step back and reexamine our hatred and let wrath subside. Are we striking out against the real problems: ignorance, fear, want, greed, and political disenfranchisement or just trying to find the most immediate scapegoat on which to lay the blame? Are we so busy blaming our fellow Hobbits that we've forgotten who is really behind the fouling of our Shire? Are we personally guilty of greed? Most of us are, to an extent. We need to reexamine our own desires, and make sure they are really needs instead of just wants. Poverty could be wiped out world wide, if enough modern Hobbits just said, "No! We will not stand for it anymore," or if those at the top of the economic ladder really wanted to do so. - Author: Steve Bivans
Anti Political quotes by Steve Bivans
#32. Law in general is human reason, inasmuch as it governs all the inhabitants of the earth: the political and civil laws of each nation ought to be only the particular cases in which human reason is applied. - Author: Charles De Secondat
Anti Political quotes by Charles De Secondat
#33. ...Hell is the home of the unreal and of the seekers for happiness. It is the only refuge from heaven, which is, as I tell you, the home of the masters of reality, and from earth, which is the home of the slaves of reality. The earth is a nursery in which men and women play at being heroes and heroines, saints and sinners; but they are dragged down from their fool's paradise by their bodies: hunger and cold and thirst, age and decay and disease, death above all, make them slaves of reality: thrice a day meals must be eaten and digested: thrice a century a new generation must be engendered: ages of faith, of romance, and of science are all driven at last to have but one prayer, "Make me a healthy animal." But here you escape this tyranny of the flesh; for here you are not an animal at all: you are a ghost, an appearance, an illusion, a convention, deathless, ageless: in a word, bodiless. There are no social questions here, no political questions, no religious questions, best of all, perhaps, no sanitary questions. Here you call your appearance beauty, your emotions love, your sentiments heroism, your aspirations virtue, just as you did on earth; but here there are no hard facts to contradict you, no ironic contrast of your needs with your pretensions, no human comedy, nothing but a perpetual romance, a universal melodrama. As our German friend put it in his poem, "the poetically nonsensical here is good sense; and the Eternal Feminine draws us ever upward and on... - Author: George Bernard Shaw
Anti Political quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#34. Once is happenstance. Twice is coincidence. Three times is enemy action - Author: Ian Fleming
Anti Political quotes by Ian Fleming
#35. It needs to be appreciated that despite political partition in 1947, the Indian Subcontinent continues to remain a single geographic entity, and as such dividing the natural resources equitably was and continues to remain a major challenge for the countries of the subcontinent. Water - Author: A.K. Chaturvedi
Anti Political quotes by A.K. Chaturvedi
#36. In the truest sense, freedom cannot be bestowed; it must be achieved. - Author: Franklin D. Roosevelt
Anti Political quotes by Franklin D. Roosevelt
#37. If I had had plastic surgery, I would have asked for something better than the face you are seeing! I actually really hate plastic surgery when it's just for aesthetics and anti-ageing. I think ageing is beautiful and expressive and characterful. - Author: Miranda Hart
Anti Political quotes by Miranda Hart
#38. History should be to the political economist a wellspring of experience and wisdom. - Author: Edward Gibbon
Anti Political quotes by Edward Gibbon
#39. In his anti-Darwinian book ... (and eponymously named The Neck of the Giraffe ), Francis Hitching tells the story ... "The need to survive by reaching ever higher for food is, like so many Darwinian explanations of its kind, little more than a post hoc speculation." Hitching is quite correct, but he rebuts a fairy story that Darwin was far too smart to tell - even though the tale later entered our high school texts as a "classic case" nonetheless. - Author: Stephen Jay Gould
Anti Political quotes by Stephen Jay Gould
#40. Winston Churchill aroused this nation in heroic fashion to save civilisation in World War Two. We have everything we need except political will, but political will is a renewable resource. - Author: Al Gore
Anti Political quotes by Al Gore
