  The Ishmael Community: Exerpts from Daniel Quinn

Quotes from Daniel's Works

When Europeans "discovered" the New World, they considered it a sacred duty to take it over. The people who were already living there were just in the way, like trees or rocks or wild animals. They had no real business being there, as we did. For us to take over this hemisphere was just part of the larger plan (presumably God's plan) for us to take over the entire world.

Beyond Civilization

The Story of B

"Everyone should teach it," I told her. "They should teach this first. Reading, writing, and arithmetic can wait."

"Well, naturally I agree with you. This is the word of B, Jared: If the world is saved, it will not be saved by people with the old vision and new programs. If the world is saved, it will be saved by people with a new vision and no programs. This is because vision propagates itself and needs no programs.
