Iain Banks

Clach air a chàrn.

“The point is, there is no feasible excuse for what are, for what we have made of ourselves. We have chosen to put profits before people, money before morality, dividends before decency, fanaticism before fairness, and our own trivial comforts before the unspeakable agonies of others”

 ...in every age and every state, there has seldom if ever been a shortage of eager young males prepared to kill and die to preserve the security, comfort and prejudices of their elders, and what you call heroism is just an expression of this fact; there is never a scarcity of idiots.

“Political correctness is what right-wing bigots call what everybody else calls being polite”

Dead Air

 "Scotland could have viable future as independent country. We could become a low-inequality society on Scandinavian model."
