Edward Abbey

"Whenever I read Time or Newsweek or such
magazines, I wash my hands afterward. But how to
wash off the small but odious stain such reading
leaves on the mind?" --Edward Abbey

That latter is the hard part.

Best not to read such filth, evading those stains.

"How to Overthrow the System: brew your own
beer; kick in your Tee Vee; build your own cabin
and piss off the front porch whenever you bloody
well feel like it." --Edward Abbey

My man!

"Hierarchical institutions are like giant
bulldozers - obedient to the whim of any fool who
takes the controls." --Edward Abbey

True, but only part of the story.

They survive only because of the obedient fools
who support them.
