"A person of good intelligence and sensitivity cannot exist in this society very long without having some anger about the inequality - and it’s not just a bleeding-heart, knee-jerk, liberal kind of a thing - it is just a normal human reaction to a nonsensical set of values where we have cinnamon flavored dental floss and there are people sleeping in the street" ~ George Carlin

Doctor Who: 50 Years of Humanism
For 50 years, “Doctor Who” has been more than just delectable entertainment. It has been a consistent beacon of humanism, championing the value of the individual, charging us all with resisting those who oppress the weak, and revealing the universe to be a place of awe and wonder. I wanted to see if I might capture a little bit of what “Who” means to me, and has meant to millions of others for half a century now.
This video divides into five chapters —
* Prologue / You are Unique in the Universe
* The Necessity of Confronting Evil
* Pain and Loss
* Wonder and Skepticism
* Next Stop: The Universe / Epilogue
While I tried to include only the very best quotes, the fact of the matter is, it simply wasn’t possible to include them all. An earlier cut of this video ran twice as long. A half century is a long time, and I trust you’ll find I chose quotes that best represent the focal points of each chapter listed above. Likewise, please forgive some of the audio, which is rough in spots—there was simply no way to erase all of the original background score, and I decided the quotes were worthy, even if their presentation is not. Every doctor is represented, and I’ve include footage from both 50 years of the show, as well as other, supplemental imagery. The music is entirely Murray Gold’s, from the series. Enjoy!
They arrive, breathless
pound the door until it breaks
and they’re tired, I mean they traveled light
speed to get here leaping synaptic gaps
to demand my attention like impatient children.
what they have to say needs to be said NOW;
or else they’ll disappear forever.
This much I’ve learned:
thoughts fear death.
The sad part is
they’re right. If I don’t write,
or remind, it’s gone and I’m left to convince myself
it really wasn’t that important anyway.
But all things are subject to entropy
thoughts, like everything else, fade to nothing
and the more I learn about their nature
the more I know
the more I find I’m able to

Aw shit, me in the future.
"So it seems as though this part of us that is living a life on Earth is only a small piece or splinter of a much larger us. That we are many rather than one, or rather pieces of a more complex whole. We are only able to focus on the splinter we perceive as our totality. That is a good thing, because if we were aware of the complexity of it we would not be able to function in this world or reality. We are only able to see the facade that masks a much larger picture. Only now are we being allowed to peek behind the veil."
