Quotes about Society


Our bodies are programmed to consume fat and sugars because they're rare in nature... In the same way, we're biologically programmed to be attentive to things that stimulate: content that is gross, violent, or sexual and that gossip which is humiliating, embarrassing, or offensive. If we're not careful, we're going to develop the psychological equivalent of obesity. We'll find ourselves consuming content that is least beneficial for ourselves or society as a whole. Just as the factory farming system that produces and delivers our food shapes what we eat, the dynamics of our media shape what information we consume.

Danah Boyd

I don`t need no arms around me.
And I don`t need no drugs to calm me.
I have seen the writing on the wall.
Don`t think I need anything at all.
No. Don`t think I`ll need anything at all.
All in all it was all just bricks in the wall.
All in all you were all just bricks in the wall.
