The Cyber-Cave

Reflections on the political, technological, cultural and economic trends of the world


“Money trumps peace sometimes” (George W. Bush)
“Esse non videri” (motto of the Wallenberg family)
“The president is the CEO of the country. He can hire and fire whomever he wants.” (Nikki Haley)
“The simple truth is that, in our world, the existence of the weak is in doubt. … The strong survive, the weak are erased.” (Benjamin Netanyahu)
“No bourgeoisie, no democracy” (Barrington Moore)
“We really have to understand, in each country or each region of the world that we’re dealing with, what are our national security interests, what are our economic prosperity interests, and then as we can, advocate and advance our values” (Rex Tillerson)
“Everybody has a plan until they get punched in the face” (Mike Tyson)
“The motion picture industry has provided a window on the world, and the colonized nations have looked through that window and have seen the things of which they have been deprived. It is perhaps not generally realized that a refrigerator can be a revolutionary symbol—to a people who have no refrigerators. A motor car owned by a worker in one country can be a symbol of revolt to a people deprived of even the necessities of life… [Hollywood] helped to build up the sense of deprivation of man’s birthright, and that sense of deprivation has played a large part in the national revolutions of postwar Asia.” (Sukarno)
