Robert Anton Wilson, January 18, 1932--January 11, 2007

Can the heretic ever win? Are there enough of them to make things change faster?

Heresy always wins. All establishments grow rigid and ossified and die off. The individual heretic may play a role in the new paradigm or may just serve as comedy relief, i.e. appear as nutty to the future as to the current establishment. Heresy is no game for security seekers.

Do you believe everything you write (and say)?

I don't believe anything I write or say. I regard belief as a form of brain damage, the death of intelligence, the fracture of creativity, the atrophy of imagination. I have opinions but no Belief System (B.S.)

“Most ‘work’ in this age is stupid, monotonous, brain-rotting, irritating, usually pointless and basically consists of the agonizing process of being slowly bored to death over a period of about 40 to 45 years of drudgery; Marx was quite right in calling it ‘wage slavery.’ Most people know this, but are afraid to admit it, because to dislike ‘work’ is regarded as a symptom of Communism or some other dreadful mental illness.”
Robert Anton Wilson
