    People who live in the post-totalitarian system know only too well that the question of whether one or several political parties are in power, and how these parties define and label themselves, is of far less importance than the question of whether or not it is possible to live like a human being.
    Václav Havel (b. 1936)

    If human beings are to survive in a nuclear age, committing acts of violence may eventually have to become as embarrassing as urinating or defecating in public are today.

    In my short experience of human life, the outward obstacles, if there were any such, have not been living men, but the institutions of the dead.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
