Art is a Reflection of Reality

"In a decaying society, art, if it is truthful, must also reflect decay. And unless it wants to break faith with its social function, art must show the world as changeable, and help to change it." -Ernst Fischer

Harrowdown Hill - Thom Yorke


"We think the same things at the same time, we just can't do anything about it. We think the same things at the same time, there are just too many of us so you can't count."

Harrowdown Hill in Oxfordshire is notable for being the place where the body of Dr David Kelly was found in 2003. His evidence had raised questions about Saddam Hussein's possession of Weapons of Mass Destruction — the official justification for the UK government's decision to invade Iraq.

Network - Sidney Lumet


"You're beginning to believe the illusions we're spinning here, you're beginning to believe that the tube is reality and your own lives are unreal. You do. Why, whatever the tube tells you: you dress like the tube, you eat like the tube, you raise your children like the tube, you even think like the tube. This is mass madness, you maniacs. In God's name, you people are the real thing, WE are the illusion."

moshMosh - Eminem

"No more blood for oil, we got our own battles to fight on our own soil, No more psychological warfare, to trick us to thinking that we ain't loyal, If we don't serve our own country, we're patronizing a hero. Look in his eyes its all lies..."

anthemAnthem, Part 2 - Blink 182

"Corporate leaders, politicians, Kids can't vote, adults elect them, Laws that rule the school and workplace, Signs that caution sixteen's unsafe, We really need to see this through, We never wanted to be abused, We'll never give up, it's no use, If we're fucked up, you're to blame."

Through Literature

The Cosmic Serpent - Jeremy Narby

"It seemed that no one had noticed the possible links between the “myths” of “primitive peoples” and molecular biology. No one had seen that the double helix had symbolized the life principle for thousands of years around the world. On the contrary, everything was upside down. It was said that hallucinations could in no way constitute a source of knowledge, that Indians had found their useful molecules by chances experimentation, and that their “myths” were precisely myths, bearing no relationship to the real knowledge discovered in laboratories."

Confessions of An Economic Hitman - John Perkins

"Economic hit men (EHMs) are highly paid professionals who cheat countries around the globe out of trillions of dollars. They funnel money from the World Bank, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), and other foreign "aid" organizations into the coffers of huge corporations and the pockets of a few wealthy families who control the planet's natural resources. Their tools include fraudulent financial reports, rigged elections, payoffs, extortion, sex, and murder. They play a game as old as empire, but one that has taken on new and terrifying dimensions during this time of globalization. I should know; I was an EHM."-Perkins

1984 - George Orwell

"And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed—if all records told the same tale—then the lie passed into history and became truth. 'Who controls the past' ran the Party slogan, 'controls the future: who controls the present controls the past."
