Taylor (1983). In defense of biocentrism.

“A rational human being will then take that attitude because it is seen to be the only justified or suitable one to take toward such creatures. The attitude is a uniquely human attitude in the sense that only humans are capable of having it, but it is not an anthropocentric attitude.” (p 241)

King (1963). Letter From A Birmingham Jail.

“I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro’s great stumbling block in his stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen’s Counciler or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate, who is more devoted to ‘order’ than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice; who constantly says: ‘I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I cannot agree with your methods of direct action’; who paternalistically believes he can set the timetable for another man’s freedom; who lives by a mythical concept of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait for a ‘more convenient season.'” (¶23, p 9-10)

Bachmann (2017). Just in case you meet an alien: Here’s where to learn Klingon.

Ellul (1964). Chapter 1 – Techniques. (The Technological Society.)

“Technique has become autonomous; it has fashioned an omnivorous world which obeys its own laws and which has renounced all tradition. Technique no longer rests on tradition, but rather on previous technical procedures; and its evolution is too rapid, too upsetting, to integrate the older traditions.” (p 14)

Jesdanun & Liedtke (2017). What the CIA WikiLeaks Dump Tells Us: Encryption Works.

Vowel (2016). Myth-Busting. (Indigenous Writes: A Guide to First Nations, Métis, and Inuit issues in Canada.)

“Every single one of us, Indigenous and non-Indigenous alike, has been fed a series of lies, half-truths, and fantasies intended to create a cohesive national identity. What is most startling about this is that a great many people are aware of the errors and omissions present in our system of education and in our public discourse, yet there has not been a national attempt to rectify this.” (p 120)
