The bigots, whether they are of the Islamist variety or the anti-Muslim variety, essentially agree on a few matters. One is their belief that Islam itself - not Islamism - is a supremacist ideology that is here to take over the world; another is that, therefore, Muslims and non-Muslims can never live equally and peacefully together, but must separate into religiously defined entities.Sam Harris Anti-rationalism Sayings By Sam Harris: The bigots, whether they are of the Islamist variety or the anti-Muslim variety, essentially agree
One of the accusations made against the Pope is that he did not give a public and obvious denunciation of anti-Semitism during the Holocaust. It's a valid issue but one that is often discussed with too little understanding of the reality of 1940s Europe. Such explicit condemnations of Nazi anti-Semitism were not really made in London, Washington, or Moscow, but it's always assumed that Rome should somehow have been different, in spite of the fact that the Vatican was surrounded by Nazi or pro-Nazi troops and that millions of Roman Catholics lived under Nazi occupation whereas London, Washington, and even Moscow were relatively cocooned and the latter even comparatively safe.Michael Coren Anti-rationalism Sayings By Michael Coren: One of the accusations made against the Pope is that he did not give a
In my blood there is no Jewish blood. In their callous rage, all anti-Semites must hate me now as a Jew. For that reason I am a true Russian.Yevgeny Yevtushenko Anti-rationalism Sayings By Yevgeny Yevtushenko: In my blood there is no Jewish blood. In their callous rage, all anti-Semites must

Texans for Public Justice, an anti-corruption group based in Texas applauded the indictment. No jury can undo the outcome of Texas 2002 elections, ... but the justice system must punish those who criminally conspire to undermine democracy no matter how powerful they may be. If we are to be a democracy, then powerful politicians cannot flout such laws with impunity.Craig McDonald Anti-rationalism Sayings By Craig McDonald: Texans for Public Justice, an anti-corruption group based in Texas applauded the indictment. No jury
If I ever thought of directing again, I mean - I don't know, even the idea of directing a film is a strange one for me, because I feel kind of anti mathematics in a way in that sense. Anti - I don't like when things make sense, I prefer if they don't, so if I made a film, it wouldn't make any sense and no one would see it. So maybe I'll just make little films at home with my phone, never to be released.Johnny Depp Anti-rationalism Sayings By Johnny Depp: If I ever thought of directing again, I mean - I don't know, even the

And in a way, this was how he had come to see his death, as a series of small ones taking place over the course of his life and leading finally to the main event, which would be so anti-climatic, so undramatic (a sudden violent seizure in his long abused heart, a quick massive flooding of the brain) it would go unnoticed. It was the small deaths occurring over an entire lifetime that took the greater toll.Paule Marshall Anti-rationalism Sayings By Paule Marshall: And in a way, this was how he had come to see his death, as
The truth is an anti-war statement in itself.Henry Rollins Anti-rationalism Sayings By Henry Rollins: The truth is an anti-war statement in itself.
My dad [Johnny Cash] went to the [Richard] Nixon White House and refused to sing "Welfare Cadillac" (instead performing the anti-war songs "The Ballad of Ira Hayes" and "Man in Black"). He protested the Vietnam War, but he went to perform for the troops with bombs dropping all around him. He had that kind of genius: a true artist's capacity for holding two opposing thoughts at once while being large enough to encompass all realities.Rosanne Cash Anti-rationalism Sayings By Rosanne Cash: My dad [Johnny Cash] went to the [Richard] Nixon White House and refused to sing
Is the Justice Department incapable of regulating itself?

Without strong regulation, the privileges we give
The folks celebrating Jim Bunning are seeing him as an anti-government, anti-spending activist.

But to
Originating in large scale electronic warfare and anti-jamming technologies for the battlefield devised by two Russian immigrants, these now one-chip systems can fit in a handset and enable intercommunication among the towers of Babel in urban America.George Gilder Anti-rationalism Sayings By George Gilder: Originating in large scale electronic warfare and anti-jamming technologies for the battlefield devised by two
. Despite the considerable horror they had felt when the SA men were bellowing crude anti-Semitic slogans, in retrospect the joke-tellers were very much aware of the boycott's inherent absurdity:
A city on the Rhine during the boycott: SA men stand in front of Jewish businesses and "warn" passers-by against entering them. Nonetheless, a woman tries to go into a knitting shop.
An SA man stops her and says, "Hey, you. Stay outside. That's a Jewish shop!"
"So?" replies the woman. "I'm Jewish myself."
The SA man pushes her back. "Anyone can say that!
Rudolph Herzog Anti-rationalism Sayings By Rudolph Herzog: . Despite the considerable horror they had felt when the SA men were bellowing crude
Americans are in serious intellectual trouble - in danger of losing our hard-won cultural capital to a virulent mixture of anti-intellectualism, anti-rationalism and low expectations.Susan Jacoby Anti-rationalism Sayings By Susan Jacoby: Americans are in serious intellectual trouble - in danger of losing our hard-won cultural capital
To deny an entire group of people the ability to be legal couples is anti-American and anti-freedom. As a devoted husband and father of two, I can't imagine the state of Minnesota not recognizing my love for my wife Isabelle. We would welcome and respect the equal rights for gays to experience the same joy and privileges of marriage that we do.Chris Kluwe Anti-rationalism Sayings By Chris Kluwe: To deny an entire group of people the ability to be legal couples is anti-American
Homosexuality is anti-humanity.Yahya Jammeh Anti-rationalism Sayings By Yahya Jammeh: Homosexuality is anti-humanity.

Gonsalves Anti-rationalism Sayings By Gloria D. Gonsalves: Creativity occurs in introverted space. Instead of considering those who seek solitude as anti-social, weird
See the rhythm:
when in love, you would like to be alone; when alone, soon you would like to be in love.
Lovers come close and go away, come close and go away
there is a rhythm. Going
away is not anti-love; going away is just getting your aloneness again, and the beauty of
it and the joy of it.
Osho Anti-rationalism Sayings By Osho: See the rhythm:when in love, you would like to be alone; when alone, soon you
When people say 'Lysistrata' has always been seen as an anti-war play, what's interesting is to not make it an anti-war play, because I actually think there are important times to go to war in this world. That's just the reality. But what's interesting is the not caring.Douglas Carter Beane Anti-rationalism Sayings By Douglas Carter Beane: When people say 'Lysistrata' has always been seen as an anti-war play, what's interesting is
The sinner I was expecting was guilty of pride, lust and spiritual despair, not merely of sloth and ineptitude. This was the diary of a nobody. So I nearly censored January to June 1933 in the interests of Grandpa's glamour as a Gothic personage. But in truth this is what we should be exposed to - the awful knowledge that when they're not breaking the commandments, the anti-heroes are mending their tobacco pipes and listening to the wireless.Lorna Sage Anti-rationalism Sayings By Lorna Sage: The sinner I was expecting was guilty of pride, lust and spiritual despair, not merely
The human beings at the helm of the new nation [USA], whatever their limitations [slave owners, anti-democracy], were truly revolutionary. The theory of liberty born in that era, the seed of the idea, was perfect.
More important, the idea itself carried within it the moral power to correct the contradictions in its execution that were obvious from the very birth of the new nation.
Naomi Wolf Anti-rationalism Sayings By Naomi Wolf: The human beings at the helm of the new nation [USA], whatever their limitations [slave
any form of expression that ceases to be an experience and becomes an art form loses its glowing divinityJo M. Sekimonyo Anti-rationalism Sayings By Jo M. Sekimonyo: any form of expression that ceases to be an experience and becomes an art form
If the anti-Christian agenda will say, 'Here's your identity, you're an evolved amoeba who ought to just go do whatever you want and don't let anybody tell you different,' then they can get you to throw your faith, your character, your courage, and your liberty right out the window.Kirk Cameron Anti-rationalism Sayings By Kirk Cameron: If the anti-Christian agenda will say, 'Here's your identity, you're an evolved amoeba who ought
There are still thousands of people dying every year in Laos, mostly children and farmers, from unexploded anti-personnel ordnance that the U.S. simply saturated much of the land with, especially in the Plain of Jars. There actually is a British engineering team trying to remove some of these things, which are much worse than land mines.Noam Chomsky Anti-rationalism Sayings By Noam Chomsky: There are still thousands of people dying every year in Laos, mostly children and farmers,
I joined the anti-Fascist struggle with my best friend, who was a Jew.Franjo Tudjman Anti-rationalism Sayings By Franjo Tudjman: I joined the anti-Fascist struggle with my best friend, who was a Jew.
If we are to be honest with ourselves, we must admit that the "Negro" has been inviting whites, as well as civil society's junior partners, to the dance of social death for hundreds of years, but few have wanted to learn the steps. They have been, and remain today - even in the most anti-racist movements, like the prison abolition movement - invested elsewhere. This is not to say that all oppositional political desire today is pro-white, but it is usually anti-Black, meaning it will not dance with death.Frank B. Wilderson III Anti-rationalism Sayings By Frank B. Wilderson III: If we are to be honest with ourselves, we must admit that the "Negro" has
To stop challenging someone from using anti-gay language simply because they persist in using anti-gay language strikes me as a defeatist approach.Mallory Ortberg Anti-rationalism Sayings By Mallory Ortberg: To stop challenging someone from using anti-gay language simply because they persist in using anti-gay
The evils against which we contend are frequently the fruits of illusions which are similar to our own.Reinhold Niebuhr Anti-rationalism Sayings By Reinhold Niebuhr: The evils against which we contend are frequently the fruits of illusions which are similar
After a fashion, they did, mingling the sale of perfumes with anti-Nazi propaganda. In the event, my tirelessly publicised determination to wrest back control of the business neutralised most of the adverse repercussions on me from an unwilling association with their propaganda.Coco Chanel Anti-rationalism Sayings By Coco Chanel: After a fashion, they did, mingling the sale of perfumes with anti-Nazi propaganda. In the
As every new breed of virus is conceived, created and released into the wild, another small change is made to the anti-virus software to combat the new threat.Glenn Turner Anti-rationalism Sayings By Glenn Turner: As every new breed of virus is conceived, created and released into the wild, another
The longer an event is anticipated-a milestone birthday, an eclipse, a new millennium-the more likely it is to be an anti-climax.Keith Waterhouse Anti-rationalism Sayings By Keith Waterhouse: The longer an event is anticipated-a milestone birthday, an eclipse, a new millennium-the more likely
When the Taliban took over in 1996, the news of their crimes hit the Toronto papers.

Europe is equal to its historical task. Against the anti-spiritual, anti-heroic 'ideals' of America-Jewry, Europe pits its metaphysical ideas, its faith in its Destiny, its ethical principles, its heroism. Fearlessly, Europe falls in for battle, knowing it is armed with the mightiest weapon ever forged by History: the superpersonal Destiny of the European organism. Our European Mission is to create the Culture-State-Nation-Imperium of the West, and thereby we shall perform such deeds, accomplish such works, and so transform our world that our distant posterity, when they behold the remains of our buildings and ramparts, will tell their grandchildren that on the soil of Europe once dwelt a tribe of gods.Francis Parker Yockey Anti-rationalism Sayings By Francis Parker Yockey: Europe is equal to its historical task. Against the anti-spiritual, anti-heroic 'ideals' of America-Jewry, Europe
Women's marches are a clever progressive divide and conquer strategy that not only turns women against men, but also turns women against each other in the guise of peace and solidarity. It is a brilliant tactic to employ media propaganda to make privileged women feel oppressed and then program them to think that vulgarity, exhibitionism and emasculation is empowering.Dawn Perlmutter Anti-rationalism Sayings By Dawn Perlmutter: Women's marches are a clever progressive divide and conquer strategy that not only turns women
The cycle of life is death, decomposition and regeneration, and a person who wants to stop killing animals is actually anti-life because it's only in death that life can be regenerated.Joel Salatin Anti-rationalism Sayings By Joel Salatin: The cycle of life is death, decomposition and regeneration, and a person who wants to
Western teaching institutions that refuse to acknowledge today's taboos are by definition subversive. Tell the new zealots of Washington that in the making of Israel a monstrous human crime was committed and they will call you an anti-Semite. Tell them there was no Garden of Creation and they will call you a dangerous cynic. Tell them God is what man invented to compensate for his ignorance of science and they will call you a Communist.John Le Carre Anti-rationalism Sayings By John Le Carre: Western teaching institutions that refuse to acknowledge today's taboos are by definition subversive. Tell the
I steal from the rich to give to myself.Robert Thier Anti-rationalism Sayings By Robert Thier: I steal from the rich to give to myself.
Heinrich Himmler declared: 'Whether 10,000 Russian women collapse with exhaustion in the construction of an anti-tank ditch for Germany only interests me insofar as the ditch gets dug for Germany.Richard J. Evans Anti-rationalism Sayings By Richard J. Evans: Heinrich Himmler declared: 'Whether 10,000 Russian women collapse with exhaustion in the construction of an
You cannot sell a Christendom approach to a post-Christian world. They are anti-Christian.Alan Hirsch Anti-rationalism Sayings By Alan Hirsch: You cannot sell a Christendom approach to a post-Christian world. They are anti-Christian.
At present, intelligent people do not have their children vaccinated, nor does the law now compel them to. The result is not, as the Jennerians prophesied, the extermination of the human race by smallpox; on the contrary, more people are now killed by vaccination than by smallpox.George Bernard Shaw Anti-rationalism Sayings By George Bernard Shaw: At present, intelligent people do not have their children vaccinated, nor does the law now
The Greeks had had vast experience in this world, their imagination had been fertile and they had created much ... that, in these circumstances, they should fall in with a people imbued with a calm and sometimes stolid and bucolic certainty where its spiritual possessions were concerned, barbarians with no sculpture or breeding, necessarily tinged their contempt with impotent wrath. The inevitably logical result of this attitude on the part of the Greeks was the growth of anti-Semitism, of hatred of the Jews.Joseph Kastein Anti-rationalism Sayings By Joseph Kastein: The Greeks had had vast experience in this world, their imagination had been fertile and
So why is Chinese social networking booming despite the censorship? Part of the reason is the Chinese language. Posts on Twitter and Twitter clones such as Weibo are limited to 140 characters. In English that comes to about 20 words or a sentence with a short link - in effect, a headline. But in Chinese you can write a whole paragraph or tell a whole story in 140 characters. One Chinese tweet is equal to 3.5 English tweets. In some ways, Weibo (which means "microblog" in Chinese) is more like Facebook than Twitter. As far as the Chinese are concerned, if something is not on Weibo, it does not exist.Michael Anti Anti-rationalism Sayings By Michael Anti: So why is Chinese social networking booming despite the censorship? Part of the reason is
I'm a fan of Bill Hicks. He did things that no other stand up did at the time. He was making fun of religion, at that time it was a lot harder to say those things in the States than it was here. To slag off Christianity and fundamentalist Christians, and to be pro drugs and anti gun in the deep south, that's a big ask. And he did that and made it funny. Bill Hicks was able to say things that he really thought, and he managed to make those thoughts funny without a care if it antagonised people.Ed Byrne Anti-rationalism Sayings By Ed Byrne: I'm a fan of Bill Hicks. He did things that no other stand up did
I think all Nazis didn't see themselves as bad people. I've never met a racist yet who thought he was a racist. Or an anti-Semite who thought they were anti-Semitic.Norman Jewison Anti-rationalism Sayings By Norman Jewison: I think all Nazis didn't see themselves as bad people. I've never met a racist
how much of the present slide towards Fascist ways of thought is traceable to the 'anti-Fascism' of the past ten years and the unscrupulousness it has entailed?George Orwell Anti-rationalism Sayings By George Orwell: how much of the present slide towards Fascist ways of thought is traceable to the
The leftist is anti-individualistic ... He is not the sort of person who has an inner sense of confidence in his own ability to solve his own problems and satisfy his own needs.Theodore J. Kaczynski Anti-rationalism Sayings By Theodore J. Kaczynski: The leftist is anti-individualistic ... He is not the sort of person who has an
You can't really ever know what someone is like or what they're thinking. There are people who say they're feminists but who say really anti-feminist things, [and] other people who think they're one way but act another.Danielle Henderson Anti-rationalism Sayings By Danielle Henderson: You can't really ever know what someone is like or what they're thinking. There are
The story of the betrayal of Jesus by Judas gave a moral and religious rationale to anti-Jewish sentiment, and that's what made it persistent and vicious.Elaine Pagels Anti-rationalism Sayings By Elaine Pagels: The story of the betrayal of Jesus by Judas gave a moral and religious rationale
Basically, the body does have a vast amount of inbuilt anti-ageing machinery; it's just not 100% comprehensive, so it allows a small number of different types of molecular and cellular damage to happen and accumulate.Aubrey De Grey Anti-rationalism Sayings By Aubrey De Grey: Basically, the body does have a vast amount of inbuilt anti-ageing machinery; it's just not
The most spectacular UFO incident in Indonesia occurred when during the height of President Sukarno's confrontation against Malaysia, UFOs penetrated a well-defended area in Java for two weeks at a stretch, and each time were welcomed with perhaps the heaviest anti-aircraft barrage in history.Cael Sanderson Anti-rationalism Sayings By Cael Sanderson: The most spectacular UFO incident in Indonesia occurred when during the height of President Sukarno's
Kaufmann was nothing if not thorough. He exposed in detail the machinations of Nietzsche's sister Elisabeth to manipulate her brother's texts, and to enlist him in the very causes that he had consistently denounced. Her crude prejudices, including a heavy dose of anti-Semitism, had nothing in common with her brother's philosophy.Friedrich Nietzsche Anti-rationalism Sayings By Friedrich Nietzsche: Kaufmann was nothing if not thorough. He exposed in detail the machinations of Nietzsche's sister
I was never one to run away from trouble - I intend to continue to fight my corner and try to redeem our reputation in some way. It's very difficult when you see the PR campaign that Anglo have built up against us. A lot of the media would be very anti-Quinn and have fallen hook, line and sinker for the Anglo story where they are the good guys.Sean Quinn Anti-rationalism Sayings By Sean Quinn: I was never one to run away from trouble - I intend to continue to
Lists are anti-democratic, discriminatory, elitist, and sometimes the print is too small.David Ives Anti-rationalism Sayings By David Ives: Lists are anti-democratic, discriminatory, elitist, and sometimes the print is too small.
Every time a bomb exploded, every anti-personnel weapon that sent its hundreds of particles tearing through the sift tissues of soft bodies, every helicopter that was shot down with its crew, every plane hit with a missile: brrrring, brrrring, on the great cash register in the homeland bank. It was all profit. It would have to be replaced. It was the perfect form of fantastically expensive and forced consumption, paid for by taxes.Marge Piercy Anti-rationalism Sayings By Marge Piercy: Every time a bomb exploded, every anti-personnel weapon that sent its hundreds of particles tearing
I don't want to say I drank the Kool-Aid because I'm definitely not religious and I don't buy into any religion at all. I'm anti, because I don't like anyone being discriminated against. But, I do think that I very much needed a sunny place for me to feel happier, and living in LA was almost like that sort of cleansing experience like I was being baptized in a river.Ladyhawke Anti-rationalism Sayings By Ladyhawke: I don't want to say I drank the Kool-Aid because I'm definitely not religious and
I hope I stand for antibigotry, anti-Semitism, antiracism. This is what drives me.George H. W. Bush Anti-rationalism Sayings By George H. W. Bush: I hope I stand for antibigotry, anti-Semitism, antiracism. This is what drives me.
One of the problems with traditional anti-capitalist thought is that it defines capitalism as a totality, which encourages us to imagine another totality, socialism, which we can try to replace it with. This totalizing perspective has colonized the imagination of anti-capitalism and left us waiting for a revolution we can never have.Cynthia Kauffman Anti-rationalism Sayings By Cynthia Kauffman: One of the problems with traditional anti-capitalist thought is that it defines capitalism as a
The real problem at the moment is that the banks - because of their existing culture, which is frankly anti-business, obsession with short-term trading profits, not focusing on the long term - are throttling the recovery of British industry.Vince Cable Anti-rationalism Sayings By Vince Cable: The real problem at the moment is that the banks - because of their existing
I have gotten disturbed at ... some of the Democrats' anti-business behavior, the sentiment, the attacks on work ethic and successful people. I think it's very counter-productive.Jamie Dimon Anti-rationalism Sayings By Jamie Dimon: I have gotten disturbed at ... some of the Democrats' anti-business behavior, the sentiment, the
I have to say that it's a weird feeling to have to respond to a Christian leader of an anti-Muslims organisation - it would be like having to respond to a Muslim leader of an anti-Jewish organisation about Judaism so the whole thing is kind of weird. Let me just say it's kind of convenient to simply pick and choose whatever violent bits and pieces one finds in the Koran and ignore the equally important versus that talk about compassion and peace.Reza Aslan Anti-rationalism Sayings By Reza Aslan: I have to say that it's a weird feeling to have to respond to a
Out-of-step intellectuals like Noam Chomsky and the deceased Edward Said have often been dismissed as crazy extremists, 'anti-American,' and in Mr. Said's case even, absurdly, as apologists for Palestinian 'terrorism.'Salman Rushdie Anti-rationalism Sayings By Salman Rushdie: Out-of-step intellectuals like Noam Chomsky and the deceased Edward Said have often been dismissed as
Minimum wage increases. The Nobel Prize economist Milton Friedman has observed that the minimum wage is "one of the most ... anti-black laws on the statute books" because it destroys entry level jobs for second paycheck earners, teens, and other unskilled workers.David Horowitz Anti-rationalism Sayings By David Horowitz: Minimum wage increases. The Nobel Prize economist Milton Friedman has observed that the minimum wage
Richard Nixon was not the lesser evil, he was the greater evil, but in his administration the war was finally brought to an end, because he had to deal with the power of the anti-war movement as well as the power of the Vietnamese movement. I will vote, but always with a caution that voting is not crucial, and organizing is the important thing.Howard Zinn Anti-rationalism Sayings By Howard Zinn: Richard Nixon was not the lesser evil, he was the greater evil, but in his
It is a third generation anti-Semitism. First it was religious in nature. Today, the Jewish state is attacked and that is the new anti-Semitism. What they have in common is that in all versions, Jews are seen as absolute evil.Manfred Gerstenfeld Anti-rationalism Sayings By Manfred Gerstenfeld: It is a third generation anti-Semitism. First it was religious in nature. Today, the Jewish
The argument by the anti-gay-marriage crowd is so absurd, so internally contradictory, and so awash in unproven assertions that it is difficult to take it as anything more than a construct cobbled together by people who just don't like those people.Kurt Eichenwald Anti-rationalism Sayings By Kurt Eichenwald: The argument by the anti-gay-marriage crowd is so absurd, so internally contradictory, and so awash
Under the Enrichment Laws, consumers have to spend a fixed quota of dollars each month, depending on their strata. Hoarding is an anti-corpocratic crime.David Mitchell Anti-rationalism Sayings By David Mitchell: Under the Enrichment Laws, consumers have to spend a fixed quota of dollars each month,
I say openly that I am an anti-war person, with the point being, show me some reason not to be against this war. You have to be sort of asleep at the switch not to be critical of it. And the parallel between one quagmire we went through in Vietnam and the one we're in now is clear for everybody to see.Seymour Hersh Anti-rationalism Sayings By Seymour Hersh: I say openly that I am an anti-war person, with the point being, show me
Todd? Are you still there?"
"Yeah. I'm just trying to think of a good reason to continue our friendship."
I grinned. "Jealousy is so unattractive Todd."
"It would help if you could tell me one thing that's wrong. One flaw. Bad breath? Warts? Some condition that requires anti fungal spray?"
"Would chest hair be a flaw?"
"Oh, yeah." Todd sounded relieved." I can't stand a chest rug. You can't see the chest cut.
Lisa Kleypas Anti-rationalism Sayings By Lisa Kleypas: Todd? Are you still there?" "Yeah. I'm just trying to think of a good reason
If I rule out violent anarchism, there remains pacifist, anti-nationalist, anti-capitalist, moral, and anti-democratic anarchism (i.e., that which is hostile to the falsified democracy of bourgeois states). There remains the anarchism which acts by means of persuasion, by the creation of small groups and networks, denouncing falsehood and oppression, aiming at a true overturning of authorities of all kinds as people at the bottom speak and organize themselves.Jacques Ellul Anti-rationalism Sayings By Jacques Ellul: If I rule out violent anarchism, there remains pacifist, anti-nationalist, anti-capitalist, moral, and anti-democratic anarchism
I believe the most compelling explanation of Obama's actions is that he is, just like his father, an anti-colonialist.Dinesh D'Souza Anti-rationalism Sayings By Dinesh D'Souza: I believe the most compelling explanation of Obama's actions is that he is, just like
You read about that Black Lips/Wavves fight as a spectator and you're like, "Oh man, I'm gonna pick a team to be on! I'm gonna put my two cents in as my status update on my Facebook page" or something. Not to sound like an anti-technology person, but it's just a real drag that people live their lives that way.Bradford Cox Anti-rationalism Sayings By Bradford Cox: You read about that Black Lips/Wavves fight as a spectator and you're like, "Oh man,
Immunization is total nonsense! More than that is what's hidden from people about vaccines. They are dangerous. One child out of five has overwhelming disabilities from vaccines -- neurological problems, seizures.Guylaine Lanctot Anti-rationalism Sayings By Guylaine Lanctot: Immunization is total nonsense! More than that is what's hidden from people about vaccines. They
The saying"Tradition goes on" is anti-dynamic and ruins the progress and development of every nation that adheres to itABC Anti-rationalism Sayings By ABC: The saying"Tradition goes on" is anti-dynamic and ruins the progress and development of every nation
Her point is that, contrary to the prevailing flatland postmodern view, not only is cultural evolution not an ethnocentric or eurocentric notion, it is the only way out of the hidden ethnocentrism of most "progressive" circles of Western social science, which in fact discourage the cultural evolution that alone would transcend the ethnocentrism. In other words, although they nobly desire to alleviate oppression, the anti-cultural-evolutionists are part of the very disease they so aggressively denounce. ButKen Wilber Anti-rationalism Sayings By Ken Wilber: Her point is that, contrary to the prevailing flatland postmodern view, not only is cultural
Let's get one thing out of the way: Mexican immigration is an oxymoron. Mexicans are indigenous. So, in a strange way, I'm pleased that the racist folks of Arizona have
officially declared, in banning me alongside Urrea, Baca, and Castillo, that their anti-immigration laws are also anti-Indian. I'm also strangely pleased that the folks of Arizona
have officially announced their fear of an educated underclass. You give those brown kids some books about brown folks and what happens? Those brown kids change the world. In the effort to vanish our books, Arizona has actually given them enormous power. Arizona has made our books sacred documents now.
Sherman Alexie Anti-rationalism Sayings By Sherman Alexie: Let's get one thing out of the way: Mexican immigration is an oxymoron. Mexicans are

Only time, education and plenty of good schooling will make anti-segregation work.Nat King Cole Anti-rationalism Sayings By Nat King Cole: Only time, education and plenty of good schooling will make anti-segregation work.
the essential vice, the utmost evil, is Pride. Unchastity, anger, greed, drunkenness, and all that, are mere fleabites in comparison: it was through Pride that the devil became the devil: Pride leads to every other vice: it is the complete anti-God state of mind. DoesC.S. Lewis Anti-rationalism Sayings By C.S. Lewis: the essential vice, the utmost evil, is Pride. Unchastity, anger, greed, drunkenness, and all that,

The ultimate goal of the resistance movement is a planet not just living, but in recovery, growing more alive and more diverse year after year. A planet on which humans live in equitable and sustainable communities without exploiting the planet or each other.
Goal 1 : To disrupt and dismantle industrial civilization; to thereby remove the ability of the powerful to exploit the marginalized and destroy the planet.

Songs, to me, were more important than just light entertainment. They were my preceptor and guide into some altered consciousness of reality. Some different republic, some liberated republic ... whatever the case, it wasn't that I was anti-popular culture or anything and I had no ambition to stir things up. I just thought of mainstream culture as lame as hell and a big trick. It was like the unbroken sea of frost that lay outside the window and you had to have awkward footgear to walk with.Bob Dylan Anti-rationalism Sayings By Bob Dylan: Songs, to me, were more important than just light entertainment. They were my preceptor and
Everybody's still miserable in the same way they've always been miserable, and more and more of my friends - especially my male friends - find themselves taking anti-anxiety, psychotropic drugs.

For the Jew was still characterized for me by nothing but his religion, and therefore, on grounds of human tolerance, I maintained my rejection of religious attacks in this case as in others.

Well, I'm pretty anti legends - I just don't think they're useful. So that certainly wouldn't be my intention. But will it contribute to that? Sure. Any medicine can be mis-used. But I think that there is a great courage, innocence and magic to him that more than a legend is about connection.Sean Penn Anti-rationalism Sayings By Sean Penn: Well, I'm pretty anti legends - I just don't think they're useful.

If being an anti-art artist is difficult, being an anti-art art historian is a hard position indeed. His doctrinal revolutionism brings forth nothing new in art but reenacts upheavals on the symbolic plane of language. It provides the consoling belief that overthrows are occurring as in the past, that barriers to creation are being surmounted, and that art is pursuing a radical purpose, even if it is only the purpose of doing away with itself.Harold Rosenberg Anti-rationalism Sayings By Harold Rosenberg: If being an anti-art artist is difficult, being an anti-art art historian is a hard

The first martyrs were Jewish ... So no true Christian, in my judgment, can be an anti-Semite.Pat Buchanan Anti-rationalism Sayings By Pat Buchanan: No true Christian can carry within his heart hatred for any of God's children ...
We were all anti-Reagan, we were all politically-aware, we were all anti-war and things like that.

This was the Evangelical Revival that now began to take hold on the propertied class, who, frightened by what was happening in France, were anxiously mending their fences, spiritual as well as political. To escape rationalism's horrid daughter, revolution, they were only too willing to be enfolded in the anti-intellectual embrace of Evangelicalism, even if it demanded faith and good works and a willing suspension of disbelief.Barbara W. Tuchman Anti-rationalism Sayings By Barbara W. Tuchman: This was the Evangelical Revival that now began to take hold on the propertied class,
