Hannah Arendt

Under conditions of tyranny, it is far easier to act than to think.More Hannah Arendt quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Man cannot be free if he does not know that he is subject to necessity, because his freedom is always won in his never wholly successful attempts to liberate himself from necessity.More Hannah Arendt quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
... the loss of belief in future states is politically, though certainly not spiritually, the most significant distinction betweenour present period and the centuries before. And this loss is definite. For no matter how religious our world may turn again, or how much authentic faith still exists in it, or how deeply our moral values may be rooted in our religious systems, the fear of hell is no longer among the motives which would prevent or stimulate the actions of a majority.More Hannah Arendt quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It is in the nature of all party systems that the authentically political talents can assert themselves only in rare cases, and it is even rarer that the specifically political qualifications survive the petty maneuvers of party politics with its demands for plain salesmanship.More Hannah Arendt quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The concept of unlimited expansion that alone can fulfill the hope for unlimited accumulation of capital, and brings about the aimless accumulation of power, makes the foundation of new political bodies - which up to the era of imperialism always had been the upshot of conquest - well-nigh impossible.More Hannah Arendt quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
