…there isn’t any fiction anymore. There is the lingering smell of fiction in some of the branches of nostalgia. But fiction itself is gone. 

We are now in an unstructured era of post-musical music, post-artistic art, post-fictional fiction and post-experiential experience. We are, partly at least, in a post-conscious world.

Of course some of us have always regarded Utopia as a calamity, but most of you have not.

Ray Lafferty

Revolutionaries do not make revolutions. The revolutionaries are those who know when power is lying in the street and when they can pick it up.
