In fact, today there are only two admissible positions remaining in the world. Communism, reducing each man to the object (thus rejecting the deceptive appearances that the subject had assumed), and the attitude of Nietzsche, freeing the subject of the limits imposed on it by the past and of the objectivity of the present.
Georges Bataille, Nietzsche and Communism

In the face of extreme reality we are defenceless. But this is only a beginning. We are the aborigines, the anthropoids of the Virtual. In terms of world history, we are barely at the stage of the invention of fire and walking upright. Logically, it remains for us to be exploited and colonized by an even greater power.
~Jean Baudrillard, Cool Memories V
