“It is not necessary that a crowd should be numerous for the faculty of seeing what is taking place before its eyes to be destroyed and for the real facts to be replaced by hallucinations unrelated to them.” -Gustave Le Bon

“Are we devolving from a republic into a society of clans, a world where every family withdraws behind its walls and lets the commons fall to ruin?” -William Deresiewicz’s Excellent Sheep

“In modern societies, therefore, the ‘arts of governing’ – what Foucault also called ‘governmentality’ – do not consist primarily in being repressive, but rather in an ‘internalized’ self-discipline, a mode of self- control that always serves to regulate ‘one’s own’ precariousness.” -Isabell Lorey, State of Insecurity
