Today, when respectable discourse still requires euphemistic substitutes for "capitalism," it is difficult to remember that this term was itself a euphemism of sorts, a polite and dignified substitute for greed, extortion, coercion, domination, exploitation, plunder, war and murder. This was the list of grievances compiled by the Luddites in their heroic defense of society. Machine-breaking was simply a strategy and a tactic for correcting these violations of morality and humanity, violations that were later obscured by myths of the market and technological progress.

~David F. Noble, In Defense of Ludism (Progress without People, 1993)

Our scientific power has outrun our spiritual power. We have guided missiles and misguided men.
~Martin Luther King Jr. (Strength to Love, 1963)

My role as a progressive teacher is not only that of teaching mathematics or biology but also of helping the students to recognize themselves as the architects of their own cognition process.
~Paulo Freire (Pedagogy of Freedom)
