Jump cut life style

Unfettered creativity is one of the most powerful manifestations of subversion possible, for it offers us all a taste of freedom.

Don't believe us
We're all cultural prostitutes.
Abolish work.
Steal time.

Passion destroyed is reborn in the passion for destruction.
Destroy bourgeois culture.
Power to the people!
Question everything?
Smash it up.
Poetry must be made by all and not by one.
A taste for change, satisfied by a change of taste.
Whatever doesn't kill power is killed by it.
My heart still hurts from last night.
Governments are failures.

Depression is the obvious extension
of boredom in consumer capitalism.
Living has become reduced to the economy of space
Much more can be said on these matters. Go ahead

All of the above were selected slogans taken from the following...

The Paradox of time...

Author Unknown

The paradox of time in history is that we:
Have taller buildings, but shorter tempers
Wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints
We spend more, but have less
We buy more, but enjoy it less

We have bigger houses and smaller families
Bigger churches and smaller congregations
A multitude of prayers, but very little faith
A blessed life, but lack of gratitude
A loving God for our blemished hearts

We have more conveniences, but less time
We have more degrees, but less sense
More knowledge, but less judgment
More experts, but more problems
More medicine, but less wellness

We have multiplied our possessions,
But reduced our values
We talk too much, love too seldom,
And hate too often
We've learned how to make a living,
But not a life
We've added years to life, not life to years

We've been all the way to the moon and back
But we have trouble crossing the street to meet
A new neighbor
We've conquered outer space, but not
inner space
We've cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul
We've split the atom, but not our prejudice

We have higher incomes, but lower morals
We've become long on quantity, but short on

These are the times of tall men, and short
Steep profits, and shallow relationships
More leisure, but less fun
More kinds of food, but less nutrition
These are the days of two incomes, but more
Of fancier houses, but broken homes

It is a time when there is much in the show

And nothing in the stock room
A time when technology can bring this letter
to you

And a time when you can choose to make a

Or just hit delete...
