BPR Quote of the Day
“Armaments, universal debt, and planned obsolescence – those are the three pillars of Western prosperity. If war, waste, and moneylenders were abolished, you’d collapse. And while you people are overconsuming the rest of the world sinks more and more deeply into chronic disaster.”
Aldous Huxley— from his novel, Island
Little-known facts: Aldous Huxley’s death was hardly noticed. He died on November 22, 1963, the day President Kennedy was assassinated (also dying that day was British author C.S. Lewis). As Huxley was dying (at his home in Los Angeles), at his request, his wife injected him with a dose of LSD.
