Literary Quotes

„Die Waffe der Kritik kann allerdings die Kritik der Waffen nicht ersetzen. Die materielle Gewalt muß gestürzt werden durch materielle Gewalt, allein auch die Theorie wird zur materiellen Gewalt.“
Karl Marx, Zur Kritik der Hegelschen Rechtsphilosophie. 1844

„Die Dichotomien von Geist und Körper, Tier und Mensch, Organismus und Maschine, öffentlich und privat, Natur und Kultur, Männer und Frauen, primitiv und zivilisiert sind seit langem ideologisch ausgehöhlt.“
Donna Haraway, Ein Manifest für Cyborgs. 1985

„Was ist ein Dietrich gegen eine Aktie? Was ist ein Einbruch in eine Bank gegen die Gründung einer Bank?“
Bertolt Brecht, Die Dreigroschenoper. 1931

„Die Majorität der Dummen ist unüberwindbar und für alle Zeiten gesichert.“
Albert Einstein, Aphorismen für Leo Baeck. 1953
