Guy Debord

Boredom is always counter-revolutionary. Always.More Guy Debord [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is hardly surprising that children should enthusiastically start their education at an early age with the Absolute Knowledge of computer science; while they are unable to read, for reading demands making judgments at every line. Conversation is almost dead, and soon so too will be those who knew how to speak.More Guy Debord [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There is nothing more natural than to consider everything as starting from oneself, chosen as the center of the world; one finds oneself thus capable of condemning the world without even wanting to hear its deceitful chatter.More Guy Debord [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Tourism, human circulation considered as consumption is fundamentally nothing more than the leisure of going to see what has become banal.More Guy Debord [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
In societies where modern conditions of production prevail, all of life presents itself as an immense accumulation of spectacles. Everything that was directly lived has moved away into a representation.More Guy Debord [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Young people everywhere have been allowed to choose between love and a garbage disposal unit. Everywhere they have chosen the garbage disposal unit.More Guy Debord [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Quotations are useful in periods of ignorance or obscurantist beliefs.More Guy Debord [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Art need no longer be an account of past sensations. It can become the direct organization of more highly evolved sensations. It is a question of producing ourselves, not things that enslave us.More Guy Debord [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Ideas improve. The meaning of words participates in the improvement. Plagiarism is necessary. Progress implies it. It embraces an author's phrase, makes use of his expressions, erases a false idea, and replaces it with the right idea.More Guy Debord [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

The spectacle is capital accumulated to the point where it becomes image.More Guy Debord [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The spectacle is the bad dream of a modern society in chains and ultimately expresses nothing more than its wish for sleep. The spectacle is the guardian of that sleep.More Guy Debord [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The more powerful the class, the more it claims not to exist, and its power is employed above all to enforce this claim. It is modest only on this one point, however, because this officially nonexistent bureaucracy simultaneously attributes the crowning achievements of history to its own infallible leadership. Though its existence is everywhere in evidence, the bureaucracy must be invisible as a class. As a result, all social life becomes insane.More Guy Debord [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Behind the masks of total choice, different forms of the same alienation confront each other.More Guy Debord [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
What appears is good; what is good appears.More Guy Debord [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
No longer is science asked to understand the world, or to improve any part of it. It is asked instead to immediately justify everything that happens....spectacular domination has cut down the vast tree of scientific knowledge in order to make itself a truncheon.More Guy Debord [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
With the destruction of history, contemporary events themselves retreat into a remote and fabulous realm of unverifiable stories, uncheckable statistics, unlikely explanations and untenable reasoning.More Guy Debord [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Everyone accepts that there are inevitably little areas of secrecy reserved for specialists; as regards things in general, many believe they are in on the secret.More Guy Debord [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
What is false creates taste, and reinforces itself by knowingly eliminating any possible reference to the authentic. And what is genuine is reconstructed as quickly as possible, to resemble the false.More Guy Debord [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Among the small number of things that I have liked and known how to do well, what I have assuredly known how to do best is drink. Even though I have read a lot, I have drunk even more. I have written much less than most people who write; but I have drunk much more than most people who drink.More Guy Debord [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
