Berlin, Germany (Weltexpress). The quote of the day is here and now from Sergei Kapitsa, who was born on February 14, 1928 in Cambridge, England, UK and died on August 14, 2012 in Moscow, Russia. The son of Nobel Prize winner Pyotr Kapitsa was a physicist.
Even though Sergei Kapitsa grew up in Cambridge, his parents took him to Moscow, where he was a professor at the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology. Most Russians did not get to know him in the sacred halls of science, research and teaching, but in front of the telly. He moderated the program “The obvious is the unbelievable” and was, among other things, a member of the Club of Rome.
The quote of the day reads: “Society sees nothing because it is kept in a state of deep hypnosis. People have never been so manipulated as they are now. A person doesn’t get a chance to focus and understand what is happening. Endless series, one more stupid than the other, vulgar pop music, lustful or aggressive films that gently affect the subconscious, cultivate a spirit of selfishness and violence. A normal person quickly becomes an unprincipled animal that leads an absolutely meaningless life.”
