"In 1950 a draft for a political
criminal law in the Federal Republic
of Germany contained he following
sentence: "The danger to the community
comes from organized people."
- from the film
"Politics and psychoanalysis are the ostensible subjects of 'Journeys.' But i cannot help sensing that they are ultimately means for exercising an underlying preoccupation with moral questions"
- Noel Carroll, Millenium Film Journal 7-8-9 (1980/81)
"A former LAPD officer turned sociologist (Cooper
1991) observed that the overwhelming majority of those
beaten by police turn out not to be guilty of any
crime. 'Cops don't beat up burglars,' he observed. The
reason, he explained, is simple: the one thing most
guaranteed to evoke a violent reaction from police is
to challenge their right to define the situation."
- David Graeber in his 2006 Malinowski lecture:
"Beyond Power/Knowledge: an exploration of the
relation of power, ignorance and stupidity"
