Famous quotes containing the words government and/or politics:

    Good government is the outcome of private virtue.
    John Jay Chapman (1862–1933)

    The so-called consumer society and the politics of corporate capitalism have created a second nature of man which ties him libidinally and aggressively to the commodity form. The need for possessing, consuming, handling and constantly renewing the gadgets, devices, instruments, engines, offered to and imposed upon the people, for using these wares even at the danger of one’s own destruction, has become a “biological” need.
    Herbert Marcuse (1898–1979)
