Aswad Shariati




Time is on the side of the oppressed today, it's against the oppressor. Truth is on the side of the oppressed today, it's against the oppressor. You don't need anything else. Malcolm X el-Hajj Malik el-Shabazz ______ To know how to put what knowledge in which place is wisdom (hikmah). Otherwise, knowledge without order and seeking it without discipline does lead to confusion and hence to injustice to one's self. Syed Muhammad Naquib al-Attas, ______ Truth is never timeless and absolute, therefore, but continuously revealed to those who partake in critical reflection based on struggle. ~ Farid Escak _______ It is not only violent terrorists who induce fear as a means of communication. Intellectual terrorists are equally vile. Intellectual terrorists are emotional extortionists. These terrorists, who are often racists, sexists, classists, or religious bigots, employ the language of fear. They generalize and essentialize a people, reducing them to a phenomenon. They incite fear and terror toward their victims and force the victims into a horrified silence. Khaled Abou El Fadl _________ New Atheists have actually become religious fanatics and in their quest to bludgeon society with their beliefs about secularism, they have actually adopted the state religion — one that, though void of prayers and rituals, demands that its followers blindly support the whims of politicians. ~ Noam Chomsky. _________ "Secular liberalism cannot be addressed simply as a doctrine of the state, or as a set of juridical conventions: in its vast implications, it defines, in effect, something like a way of life." - Saba Mahmood. ________ Solidarity requires that one enter the situation of those with whom one is solidary, it is a radical posture. ~ Paulo Freire ---------- Neoliberalism produces massive injustice at the global level; exploitation and exclusion are constitutive of it. It sets up a 'banopticon' that identifies those who are hostile or unsuited to the system as undesirable and excludes them." -Byung-Chul Han ______ "When we revolt it’s not for a particular culture. We revolt simply because, for many reasons, we can no longer breathe" -- Frantz Fanon 🇵🇸 🖤
