Quotes[edit]

  • The Roman came into the Promised Land that had become less and less as promised. The rich got along quite well with the foreign occupation; it provided protection from desperate peasants and patriotic resistance fighters. It provided protection from prophets who could be labeled "agitators" now, without any qualms.
    • Ernst Bloch, The Principle of Hope (1959), in Man on His Own (1970), p. 121
