Kundera on power

Photo web

The first step in liquidating a people [...] is to erase its memory. Destroy its book, its culture, its history. Then have somebody write new books, manufacture a new culture, invent a new history. Before long the nation will begin to forget what it is and what it was. The world around it will forget even faster... The struggle of man against power is the struggle of memory against forgetting.

- Milan Kundera (The book of laughter and forgetting)
