„If you want to know what's shortly due for the guillotine look for the most obvious of all symptoms: extremism.“

— John Brunner
Context: If you want to know what's shortly due for the guillotine look for the most obvious of all symptoms: extremism. It is an almost infallible sign — a kind of death-rattle — when a human institution is forced by its members into stressing those and only those factors which are identificatory, at the expense of others which it necessarily shares with competing institutions because human beings belong to all of them. context (12) "The Sociological Counterpart of Cheyne-Stokes Respiration" <!-- [Italics in source] -->

„First you use machines, then you wear machines, and then ...? Then you serve machines.“

— John Brunner
Context: First you use machines, then you wear machines, and then...? Then you serve machines. continuity (14) "The Right Man For The Job" <!-- [Italics and ellipsis in source] -->

„Whatever my country and whatever my name
A gadget on the set makes me think the same.“

— John Brunner
Context: Watching their sets in a kind of trance were people in Mexico, people in France. They don't chase Jones but the dreams are the same — Mr. and Mrs. Everywhere, that's the right name! Herr und Frau Uberall or les Partout, A gadget on the set makes them look like you. When the Everywhere couple crack a joke It's laughed at by all right-thinking folk. When the Everywhere couple adopt a pose It's the with-it view as everyone knows. It may be a rumor or it may be true But a gadget on the set has it said by you! "What do you think about Yatakang?" "I think the same as the Everywhere gang." "What do you think of Beninia then?" "The Everywheres will tell me but I don't know when." Whatever my country and whatever my name A gadget on the set makes me think the same. context (16) "Mr. & Mrs. Everywhere: Calypso (stanzas 2, 5, and 7) <!-- [Italics in source] -->
