found this quote on a really cool quote oriented tumblr site i recently found out about over at /r/blogs. its called earlymorningquote!
I've always been a huge Oasis fan and continue listening to their music now that Liam has continued to rock out as Beady Eye. Was listening to the first track on their new album and immediately recognized this quote. Incredible how it has stayed so relevant given how long ago it was initially spoken.
Here's the link to the Beady Eye track: http://youtu.be/UqJ-JCzH_xQ?t=2m53s
Here's the quote in full (was a bit shortened in the song above):
“Don’t be deceived when they tell you things are better now. Even if there’s no poverty to be seen because the poverty’s been hidden. Even if you ever got more wages and could afford to buy more of these new and useless goods which industries foist on you and even if it seems to you that you never had so much, that is only the slogan of those who still have much more than you. Don’t be taken in when they paternally pat you on the shoulder and say that there’s no inequality worth speaking of and no more reason to fight because if you believe them they will be completely in charge in their marble homes and granite banks from which they rob the people of the world under the pretence of bringing them culture. Watch out, for as soon as it pleases them they’ll send you out to protect their gold in wars whose weapons, rapidly developed by servile scientists, will become more and more deadly until they can with a flick of the finger tear a million of you to pieces.” ― Jean-Paul Marat
More of a poem, but still fantastic. Some may recognize from Into The Wild
