Famous quotes containing the word societies:

    In societies where modern conditions of production prevail, all of life presents itself as an immense accumulation of spectacles. Everything that was directly lived has moved away into a representation.
    Guy Debord (b. 1931)

    There is no human failure greater than to launch a profoundly important endeavour and then leave it half done. This is what the West has done with its colonial system. It shook all the societies in the world loose from their old moorings. But it seems indifferent whether or not they reach safe harbour in the end.
    Barbara Ward (1914–1981)

    All societies on the verge of death are masculine. A society can survive with only one man; no society will survive a shortage of women.
    Germaine Greer (b. 1939)
