PROUT’s Quotes To Live By

"You're obliged to pretend respect for people and institutions you think absurd. You live attatched in a cowardly fashion to moral and social conventions you despise, condemn, and know lack all foundation. It is that permanent contradiction between your ideas and desires and all the dead formalities and vain pretences of your civilisation which makes you sad, troubled and unbalanced."
- Octave Mirbeau, the Torture Garden

Quoted in the cover of the Manic Street Preachers music album 'the Holy Bible'.


"The liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to a point where it becomes stronger than the democratic state itself. That in its essence is fascism: ownership of government by an individual, by a group or any controlling private power."
- Franklin Roosevelt
