The three monotheisms share a series of identical forms of aversion: hatred of reason and intelligence; hatred of freedom; hatred of all books in the name of one book alone; hatred of sexuality, women,and pleasure; hatred of feminine; hatred of body, of desires, of drives.   Instead Judaism, Christianity, and Islam extol faith and belief, obedience and submission, taste for death and longing for the beyond, the asexual angel and chastity, virginity and monogamous love, wife and mother, soul and spirit.   In other words, life crucified and nothingness exalted.
- Michel Onfray

"El idealismo, la filosofía de los vencedores desde el triunfo oficial del cristianismo convertido en pensamiento de estado - ¡cuánta razón tenía Nietszche en presentar el  cristianismo como un platonismo para uso de la plebe! -, pasa tradicionalmente por ser la única filosofía digna de este nombre.

That such a mechanistic view of the world would come into being and that the world itself would turn into a world of death were, we might say, already implicit in Descartes’ identification of matter with extension and his consideration of that extension as the essence of things. This did enable the image of the world we find in modern natural science to come about and did open the way for the control of nature by scientific technology. But it had other consequences. To the self-centered ego of man, the world came to look like so much raw material. By wielding his great power and authority in controlling the natural world, man came to surround himself with a cold, lifeless world. Inevitably, each individual ego become like a lonely but well-fortified island floating on a sea of dead matter. The life was snuffed out of nature and the things of nature; the living stream that flowed at the bottom of man and all things, and kept them bound together, dried up.

¿Qué clase de hombres necesita, pues, nuestra sociedad? ¿Cuál es el ‘carácter social’ adecuado al capitalismo del siglo XX? Necesita hombres que cooperen sin razonamientos en grandes grupos, que deseen consumir cada vez más, y cuyos gustos estén estandarizados y fácilmente puedan ser influidos y previstos. Necesita hombres que se sientan libres e independientes, no sometidos a ninguna autoridad, a ningún principio, a ninguna conciencia; pero que quieran ser mandados, hacer lo que se espera de ellos y adaptarse sin fricciones al mecanismo social.
Erich Fromm. Psicoanálisis de la Sociedad Contemporánea, 1971, p. 96.

"Because I’ve got a thing about rooms, I think a lot of stuff that we wrote was influenced by the very room that we were in. I got sucked into them. Two months later I thought, “That’s why the record doesn’t sound right, because we can’t get the room anymore."
