An awesome quote and a book tip

“If a factory is torn down but the rationality which produced it is left standing, then that rationality will simply produce another factory. If a revolution destroys a government, but the systematic patterns of thought that produced that government are left intact, then those patterns will repeat themselves… There’s so much talk about the system. And so little understanding.”
Robert Pirsig, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance

  1. Thought provoking book and fully agree with the sentiments in the quote. Unfortunately changing the prevailing thought patterns embedded in a culture and society is so impossibly difficult and time consuming … no wonder Pandora went insane.
