“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Could Have Been Written by Blake

But was in fact written by Sloterdijk in a book I'm using for my lectures (he gave them last year in any case): 

“the vengeful joy of the melancholic who compiles an archive of evidence to show that the world has gone wrong.”
