« Le pire des analphabètes, c’est l’analphabète politique. Il n’écoute pas, ne parle pas, ne participe pas aux événements politiques. Il ne sait pas que le coût de la vie, le prix de haricots et du poisson, le prix de la farine, le loyer, le prix des souliers et des médicaments dépendent des décisions politiques. L’analphabète politique est si bête qu’il s’enorgueillit et gonfle la poitrine pour dire qu’il déteste la politique. Il ne sait pas, l’imbécile, que c’est son ignorance politique qui produit la prostituée, l’enfant de la rue, le voleur, le pire de tous les bandits et surtout le politicien malhonnête, menteur et corrompu, qui lèche les pieds des entreprises nationales et multinationales. »

Bertolt Brecht, poète et dramaturge allemand (1898/1956)

Edit :

« Read history incessantly until you master it. This means your own national history, the history of the world, social history, industrial history, and the history of the different sciences; but primarily the history of man. If you do not know what went on before you came here and what is happening at the time you live, but away from you, you will not know the world and will be ignorant of the world and mankind. You can only make the best out of life by knowing and understanding it. To know, you must fall back on the intelligence of others who came before you and have left their records behind. » Marcus Garvey

Marcus Garvey say: « One must never stop reading. Read everything that you can that is of standard knowledge. Don’t waste time reading trashy literature. That is to say, don’t pay any attention to the ten cents novels, wild west stories and cheap sentimental books, but where there is a good plot and a good story in the form of a novel, read it. It is necessary to read it for the purpose of getting information on human nature. The idea is that personal experience is not enough for a human to get all the useful knowledge of life, because the individual life is too short, so we must feed on the experience of others. The literature we read should include the biography and autobiography of men and women who have accomplished greatness in their particular line. Whenever you can buy these books and own them and whilst you are reading them make pencil or pen notes of the striking sentences and paragraphs that you should like to remember, so that when you have to refer to the book for any thought that you would like to refresh your mind on, you will not have to read over the whole book. »

‎ »Always have up-to-date knowledge. You can gather this from the latest books and the latest periodicals, journals and newspapers. Read your daily newspaper everyday. Read a standard monthly journal every month, a standard weekly magazine every week, a standard quarterly magazine every quarter and by this you will find the new knowledge of the whole year in addition to the books you read, whose facts have not altered in that year. Don’t keep old ideas, bury them as new ones come. » Rt. Hon. Marcus Garvey
