  1. Great! What I jotted down: “writers who see alternatives to how we live now and can see through our fear-stricken society and its obsessive technologies to other ways of being and even imagine some real grounds for hope … remember freedom,… the realists of a larger reality”
    – “Schriftsteller, die Alternativen sehen zu unserer jetzigen Lebensweise und unsere von Furcht gebannte Gesellschaft samt ihrer zwanghaften Technologien durchschauen, die sich sogar echte Grundlagen für Hoffnung vorstellen können und sich an Freiheit erinnern – die Realisten einer größeren Realität.” Klasse!
