'Quality, depth and truth are rarely, if ever, found in the mainstream. Whether in art, music, literature, science, history or knowledge itself, the good stuff always emanates from the outside.
'The mainstream edifice lies at the heart of every industrialized society. It is presented to the populace as a guidebook of how to live: what to do, what to consume, what to think. It erases any sense of the divine and sovereign nature of being, deconstructing the individual as soon as possible to achieve a smoother level of compliance. By dissuading personal reflection or metaphysical contemplations through the amplification of stress and urgency, the mainstream succeeds in sucking everyone into the consensus median where all things are pre-defined, undemanding and officially approved. No thinking required.' (The Cleaver article).
