Quote of the day

I consider belief of every kind, from astrology to every elevated religion and all great ideologies, to be superfluous and mortally dangerous. We no longer need such things. We ought to work out different strategies against misery and injustice, war and catastrophes.

...

Now that there are no priests or philosophers left, artists are the most important people in the world. This is the only thing that interests me.

I think the most important sentiment in this quote is:

We ought to work out different strategies against misery ......

...... including our own. As in, our own misery, and our own strategies against same.

Surely this is the first step to pure personal freedom.

...oh...

...and from thence logically follows relief from injustice, war and catastrophes.
