Nearest book thing

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open it to page 161.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
5. Don't search around and look for the coolest book you can find. Use what's actually next to you.


Voilà:

This new culture was dedicated, not just to the enhancement of life, but to the expansion of collective power.

From Erich Fromm, The Anatomy of Human Destructiveness, quoting Lewis Mumford, The Myth of the Machine.
