When you observe the quality of the thoughts of an alienated man, it is astonishing to see how his intelligence has evolved and how his reason has degenerated. He takes his reality as it is; he desires to enjoy it, to consume it, to touch it, to handle it. He doesn't even wonder what lies behind, because things are as they appear, and where we are going. You cannot eat the meaning, you cannot consume the sense, and for what regards the future: après moi le deluge!
Erich Fromm
