 Saul Bellow - “The fact that there are so many weak, poor and boring stories and novels written and published in America has been ascribed by our rebels to the horrible squareness of our institutions, the idiocy of power, the debasement of sexual instincts, and the failure of writers to be alienated enough. The poems and novels of these same rebellious spirits, and their theoretical statements, are grimy and gritty and very boring too, besides being nonsensical, and it is evident by now that polymorphous sexuality and vehement declarations of alienation are not going to produce great works of art either.”  
 Erich Fromm - “By alienation is meant a mode of experience in which the person experiences himself as an alien. He has become, one might say, estranged from himself. He does not experience himself as the center of his world, as the creator of his own acts -- but his acts and their consequences have become his masters, whom he obeys, or whom he may even worship. The alienated person is out of touch with himself as he is out of touch with any other person. He, like the others, is experienced as things are experienced with the senses and with common sense, but at the same time without being related to oneself and to the world outside positively.”  
 Arthur Miller - “Without alienation, there can be no politics.”

They don't expect their writer to redeem humanity, but leave to adults such childish illusions.”

 Charles Smith - “I know of no law government can use for that. The nearest there is are the regulations of the Alienation of Land Act, but its terms are too narrow to be the basis of a moratorium.”  
 Bob Dylan - “Although the masters make the rules for the wise men and the fools got nothing, Ma, to live up to.”  
 George Tenet - “This has only succeeded in buying time against an increasingly dangerous threat. The difficulty in destroying this threat lies in the fact that our efforts will not be enough to overcome the fundamental causes of the phenomenon -- poverty, alienation, disaffection and ethnic hatreds deeply rooted in history,”  
 Pope John - “The historical experience of socialist countries has sadly demonstrated that collectivism does not do away with alienation but rather increases it, adding to it a lack of basic necessities and economic inefficiency.”
