"No machinery in the world functions so precisely as this apparatus of men and, moreover, so cheaply … Rational calculation … reduces every worker to a cog in this bureaucratic machine and, seeing himself in this light, he will merely ask how to transform himself into a somewhat bigger cog … The passion for bureaucratisation drives us to despair."
(Panel by Tony Bedard, Claude St. Aubin et al, from R.E.B.E.L.S. #18, 2010)
“The fate of our times is characterized by rationalisation and intellectualisation and, above all, by the disenchantment of the world. Precisely the ultimate and most sublime values have retreated from public life either into the transcendental realm of mystic life or into the brotherliness of direct and personal human relations. It is not accidental that our greatest art is intimate and not monumental.”
