Quotes from Daniel's Works
Beyond civilization isn't a geographical space up in the mountains or on some remote desert isle. It's a cultural space that opens up among people with new minds.
In his autobiography, Malcolm X said that at one point the role of the white race in human history came to him with great clarity: The white race is Satan. I was very struck with this way of thinking about things, though I knew that his identification was not a good mythological fit. Satan is inherently an outsider -- the common enemy of mankind, to be hated and feared as much by white people as by any other. His objectives are spiritual and otherworldly, totally unlike those of the white race. We didn't go to Africa to turn the natives into sinners, we went there to turn them into slaves. Satan isn't interested in wealth, territory, or temporal power--and the white race is interested in almost nothing else. Nevertheless, I had the feeling that Malcolm was onto something.
