Famous quotes containing the words guy debord, guy and/or debord:

    The Sage of Toronto ... spent several decades marveling at the numerous freedoms created by a “global village” instantly and effortlessly accessible to all. Villages, unlike towns, have always been ruled by conformism, isolation, petty surveillance, boredom and repetitive malicious gossip about the same families. Which is a precise enough description of the global spectacle’s present vulgarity.
    Guy Debord (b. 1931)

    You think you’re the only guy that ever got a kick in the teeth? Well you’re not. It’s happening every day and it’s gonna keep right on happenin’ till this thing’s over. And you, you can sit here and feel sorry for yourself, or you can come on out with me and see how nice people are when they’re alive.
    Dalton Trumbo (1905–1976)

    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)
