And yet the men joke, laugh, stroll across the foot-wide beams as though they are on solid ground.
To the people on the sidewalk, tiny as ants below, the sky walkers appear entirely unafraid.

It's no secret that the stars are falling from the sky
The universe exploding 'cos-a one man's lie
Look I gotta go, yeah, I'm running out of change;
There's a lot of things if I could I'd rearrange

Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political
and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that
'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.'

... a majority of ministers, state secretaries and advisors acted
as classic populists attuned to the shifting moods.
They bought public approval or at least indifference a new every day.
By giving and taking away, they built a dictatorship of consent

Das war ein Vorspiel nur;
dort wo man bucher verbrennt,
verbrennt man auch am ende menschen.
That was just a prelude;
where you burn books, you end up burning people.
People of power kill children, the old send the young to die, because they have no imagination.
They have power.
Can you have power and imagination at the same time?
Can you kill people you don't know and have compassion for them at the same time?

Every life is many days, day after day.
We walk through ourselves, meeting robbers, ghosts, giants,
old men, young men, wives, widows, brothers-in-law.
But always meeting ourselves.

Arguing that you don't care about the right to privacy because you have nothing to hide
is no different than saying you don't care about free speech
because you have nothing to say.

If we continue to treat our politicians as tabloid stars,
eventually our tabloid stars are going to become politicians. - 1987
