• We have come more and more under the dominance of mechanics and sacrificed living humanity to the dead rhythm of the machine without most of us even being conscious of the monstrosity of the procedure. Hence we frequently deal with such matters with indifference and in cold blood as if we handled dead things and not the destinies of men.

    "Nationalism and Culture" by Rudolf Rocker, translated by Ray E. Chase, Book I, (Ch. 15), 1952.
