something interesting about this quote, it may not be Bukowski after all. A good example of reiteration effect (illusory truth effect), where something being repeated enough times online and through social media becomes "true" because everyone believes it.


Did Charles Bukowski Really Say, "Find What You Love and Let it Kill You?"

Quote:
No one tastes the blood in the treats

Ralph Waldo Emmerson

My interpretation: The little factory=made things we enjoy on a daily basis are often made by unknown and mistreated people who live far away; but because it has become a source of profit and great need, people will look the other way as long as the bucks keep on rollin' in.

“Some people say, How can you live without knowing? I do not know what they mean. I always live without knowing. That is easy. How you get to know is what I want to know.”

“Just remember anytime you see a news story or read something in a newspaper, you have to consider the source.

Disinformation is not an isolated situation where it will happen every once in a while.

This country is crawling with disinformation.”

- Frank Zappa, 1989

addressing an auditorium full of white people

"As this society, in general, treats our citizens - our black citizens - if you, as a white person, would be happy to receive the same treatment that our black citizens do in this society - please stand."

[no one stands]

"You didn't understand the directions. If you white folks want to be treated the way blacks are in this society - stand."

[short pause]

"Nobody's standing here. That says very plainly that you know what's happening. You know you don't want it for you. I want to know why you're so willing to accept it or to allow it to happen for others."

Jane Elliott
