George carlin dating quotes
They’ve long since bought, and paid for the Senate, the Congress, the state houses, the city halls, they got the judges in their back pockets and they own all the big media companies, so they control just about all of the news and information you get to hear. They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying, lobbying, to get what they want. They want more for themselves and less for everybody else, but I'll tell you what they don’t want: They don’t want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking. All day long beating you over the head with their media telling you what to believe, what to think and what to buy. I'm talking about the real owners now, the BIG owners! Then share it far and wide with the little green button. Because the owners, the owners of this country don't want that. The big wealthy business interests that control things and make all the important decisions. Then they would drink a lot of coffee.'So, next time you see someone sleeping, make believe you're in a science fiction movie. As they lay there, completely vulnerable to their enemies, their only movements were to occasionally shift from one position to another; or, if one of the 'mind adventures' got too real, they would sit up and scream and be glad they weren't unconscious anymore. When the sun returns, I will resume my life.'If you didn't know what sleep was, and you had only seen it in a science fiction movie, you would think it was weird and tell all your friends about the movie you'd seen. They would stop functioning almost completely, except deep in their minds they would have adventures and experiences that were completely impossible in real life. Another failed mutation; another closed-end biological mistake.” ― “People say, 'I'm going to sleep now,' as if it were nothing. 'For the next several hours, while the sun is gone, I'm going to become unconscious, temporarily losing command over everything I know and understand. And then, once a day, usually after dark, they would lie down on these special platforms and become unconscious. You go to grade school, you become a kid, you play, you have no responsibilities, you become a little baby, you go back into the womb, you spend your last nine months floating …and you finish off as an orgasm.” ― “I don't like ass kissers, flag wavers or team players. But there is an "I" in independence, individuality and integrity.'" Avoid teams at all cost.
Religion has convinced people that there’s an invisible man … Who watches everything you do every minute of every day. – George Carlin Governments don’t want well informed, well-educated people capable of critical thinking. They want obedient workers, people who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork. We don't even know how to take care of ourselves; we haven't learned how to care for one another. And, by the way, there's nothing wrong with the planet in the first place. “Religion has actually convinced people that there's an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. He's all-powerful, all-perfect, all-knowing, and all-wise, somehow just can't handle money! And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do.
