“The best friend of a nation is he who most faithfully rebukes her for her sins - and he her worst enemy who, under the specious...garb of patriotism seeks to excuse, palliate or defend them.” This was written by Douglass in April 1846 to Horace Greeley. It is true as ever. #resist #resistance #fridayreads #nonfiction #quotes
Alice works for a cutting edge toy company as a product designer. She‘s peculiar in a very good way, burdened with family secrets. Code breaking , maths, puzzles, hidden treasure, identity, and skewering of how marketing/branding influence consumer lifestyles and culture. My mentor at the ad agency I worked for: “We don‘t sell products, we sell dreams.” Can be scary. All techniques in the book are actually practiced. Alice breaks free; #Resist!
