A negative judgment gives you more satisfaction than praise, provided it smacks of jealousy.
Quotation of Jean Baudrillard
Americans may have no identity, but they do have wonderful teeth.
Quotation of Jean Baudrillard
At male strip shows, it is still the women that we watch, the audience of women and their eager faces. They are more obscene than if they were dancing naked themselves.
Quotation of Jean Baudrillard
At the heart of pornography is sexuality haunted by its own disappearance.
Quotation of Jean Baudrillard
Cowardice and courage are never without a measure of affectation. Nor is love. Feelings are never true. They play with their mirrors.
Quotation of Jean Baudrillard
Deep down, no one really believes they have a right to live. But this death sentence generally stays tucked away, hidden beneath the difficulty of living. If that difficulty is removed from time to time, death is suddenly there, unintelligibly.
Quotation of Jean Baudrillard
Deep down, the US, with its space, its technological refinement, its bluff good conscience, even in those spaces which it opens up for simulation, is the only remaining primitive society.
Quotation of Jean Baudrillard
Driving is a spectacular form of amnesia. Everything is to be discovered, everything to be obliterated.
Quotation of Jean Baudrillard
Governing today means giving acceptable signs of credibility. It is like advertising and it is the same effect that is achieved - commitment to a scenario.
Quotation of Jean Baudrillard
I hesitate to deposit money in a bank. I am afraid I shall never dare to take it out again. When you go to confession and entrust your sins to the safe-keeping of the priest, do you ever come back for them?
Quotation of Jean Baudrillard
If you say, I love you, then you have already fallen in love with language, which is already a form of break up and infidelity.
Quotation of Jean Baudrillard
In the same way that we need statesmen to spare us the abjection of exercising power, we need scholars to spare us the abjection of learning.
Quotation of Jean Baudrillard
Information can tell us everything. It has all the answers. But they are answers to questions we have not asked, and which doubtless don't even arise.
Quotation of Jean Baudrillard
It is a world completely rotten with wealth, power, senility, indifference, puritanism and mental hygiene, poverty and waste, technological futility and aimless violence, and yet I cannot help but feel it has about it something of the dawning of the universe.
Quotation of Jean Baudrillard
It is always the same: once you are liberated, you are forced to ask who you are.
Quotation of Jean Baudrillard
It only takes a politician believing in what he says for the others to stop believing him.
Quotation of Jean Baudrillard
Like dreams, statistics are a form of wish fulfillment.
Quotation of Jean Baudrillard
Mistakes, scandals, and failures no longer signal catastrophe. The crucial thing is that they be made credible, and that the public be made aware of the efforts being expended in that direction. The "marketing" immunity of governments is similar to that of the major brands of washing powder.
Quotation of Jean Baudrillard
Never resist a sentence you like, in which language takes its own pleasure and in which, after having abused it for so long, you are stupefied by its innocence.
Quotation of Jean Baudrillard
Perhaps our eyes are merely a blank film which is taken from us after our deaths to be developed elsewhere and screened as our life story in some infernal cinema or dispatched as microfilm into the sidereal void.
Quotation of Jean Baudrillard
Perhaps the world's second worst crime is boredom. The first is being a bore.
Quotation of Jean Baudrillard
Santa Barbara is a paradise; Disneyland is a paradise; the U.S. is a paradise. Paradise is just paradise. Mournful, monotonous, and superficial though it may be, it is paradise. There is no other.
Quotation of Jean Baudrillard
Seduction is always more singular and sublime than sex and it commands the higher price.
Quotation of Jean Baudrillard
Television knows no night. It is perpetual day. TV embodies our fear of the dark, of night, of the other side of things.
Quotation of Jean Baudrillard
The abjection of our political situation is the only true challenge today. Only facing up to this situation in all its desperation can help us get out of it.
Quotation of Jean Baudrillard
The cities of the world are concentric, isomorphic, synchronic. Only one exists and you are always in the same one. It's the effect of their permanent revolution, their intense circulation, their instantaneous magnetism.
Quotation of Jean Baudrillard
The era of the political was one of anomie: crisis, violence, madness and revolution. The era of the trans-political is that of anomaly: an aberration of no consequence, contemporaneous with the event of no consequence.
Quotation of Jean Baudrillard
The great person is ahead of their time, the smart make something out of it, and the blockhead, sets themselves against it.
Quotation of Jean Baudrillard
The order of the world is always right - such is the judgment of God. For God has departed, but he has left his judgment behind, the way the Cheshire Cat left his grin.
Quotation of Jean Baudrillard
The sad thing about artificial intelligence is that it lacks artifice and therefore intelligence.
Quotation of Jean Baudrillard
The very definition of the real becomes: that of which it is possible to give an equivalent reproduction. The real is not only what can be reproduced, but that which is always already reproduced. The hyper real.
Quotation of Jean Baudrillard
The world is not dialectical - it is sworn to extremes, not to equilibrium, sworn to radical antagonism, not to reconciliation or synthesis. This is also the principle of evil.
Quotation of Jean Baudrillard
There exists, between people in love, a kind of capital held by each. This is not just a stock of affects or pleasure, but also the possibility of playing double or quits with the share you hold in the other's heart.
Quotation of Jean Baudrillard
There is no aphrodisiac like innocence.
Quotation of Jean Baudrillard
There is nothing funny about Halloween. This sarcastic festival reflects, rather, an infernal demand for revenge by children on the adult world.
Quotation of Jean Baudrillard
There is nothing more mysterious than a TV set left on in an empty room. It is even stranger than a man talking to himself or a woman standing dreaming at her stove. It is as if another planet is communicating with you.
Quotation of Jean Baudrillard
To love someone is to isolate him from the world, wipe out every trace of him, dispossess him of his shadow, drag him into a murderous future. It is to circle around the other like a dead star and absorb him into a black light.
Quotation of Jean Baudrillard
We have dreamt of every woman there is, and dreamt too of the miracle that would bring us the pleasure of being a woman, for women have all the qualities - courage, passion, the capacity to love, cunning - whereas all our imagination can do is naively pile up the illusion of courage.
Quotation of Jean Baudrillard
We shall never resolve the enigma of the relation between the negative foundations of greatness and that greatness itself.
Quotation of Jean Baudrillard
What is a society without a heroic dimension?
Quotation of Jean Baudrillard
What you have to do is enter the fiction of America, enter America as fiction. It is, indeed, on this fictive basis that it dominates the world.
