Reporter:   What are you working on?
Brecht:   On a comedy, MAN IS MAN.   It's about the rebuilding of
a man into another man for a particular purpose.
Reporter:   Who does the rebuilding?
Brecht:   Some emotional engineers.
Reporter:   Does the experiment succeed?
Brecht:   Oh yes.   And everybody's very relieved.
Reporter*.   Does the ideal man perhaps come out of it?
Brecht".   No, not particularly.

Music for the Song of the Scum by KURT WEILL
The army has a cure for all diseases, you know — even
cholera.   Diseases that can't be cured by castor oil   a soldi!
doesn't get."
Are you aware, sir, that we live in heroic times?'
One man isn't a man at all.   There's nothing worth saying
about less than two hundred of them." 'I think you are used to regarding a man who can't say no as a
weakling. But this Galy Gay is no weakling — on the contrary,
he is the strongest one of all.  Of course, he is strong only
after he has stopped being a private person .... You might
also think that for a man to be played with like this and forced
to give up his precious individual identity—more or less the
only thing he can call his own—is a pitiful thing.   But it's
not: it's an amusing thing. For this Galy Gay suffers no harm.
He wins.   Any man who takes such a stand, must win.   But
then, perhaps you will reach an entirely different conclusion -
against which I make not the slightest protest."
Brecht, 1927
'When the money is gone, what good is justice?'
'Personality is to a certain extent a raw material that can be
developed or exploited like any other raw material .... In
die eyes of technicians, man is part of a machine performing
functions for a machine that has not — yet — been invented."
Geoffrey Gorer
"Yon see, my friends, they can — oh yes — if yon don't watch
them right,
Make you a man who's no longer a man. Overnight."
"The world is full of danger."
