George Denis Patrick Carlin war ein US-amerikanischer Komiker, Schauspieler, Sozialkritiker und Autor. Seine Karriere begann er Ende der 1950er als Radiomoderator, erlangte jedoch schnell als Stand-up-Comedian Berühmtheit. Mit seinem 1972 erschienenen Album „FM & AM“ wandelte er sich zum sozialkritischen Künstler, der vor allem die amerikanische Konsumgesellschaft, politische Korrektheit und Religion aufs Korn nahm. Besondere Berühmtheit erlangte er für seine Seven Dirty Words, die man nicht im Fernsehen sagen darf.
Zitate George Carlin
„For a while, I thought of myself as an atheist until I realized it was a belief, too. It's a shame everything has to have a label. I feel that if I was figuratively dropped on the Earth and there was a political line, I would be just left of center. The difference for me is that conservatives are more interested in property values and rights and free markets, and liberals are more interested in human rights. In the end, there are people who don't fit into the marketplace and are not equipped. I believe the government should step in where the free market fails.“

„Here's all you have to know about men and women: women are crazy, men are stupid. And the main reason women are crazy is that men are stupid.“

Context: They don’t want people who are smart enough to sit around a kitchen table and think about how badly they’re getting fucked by a system that threw them overboard 30 fuckin’ years ago. They don’t want that. You know what they want? They want obedient workers. Obedient workers, people who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork. And just dumb enough to passively accept all these increasingly shittier jobs with the lower pay, the longer hours, the reduced benefits, the end of overtime and vanishing pension that disappears the minute you go to collect it. And now they’re coming for your Social Security money. They want your fuckin' retirement money. They want it back so they can give it to their criminal friends on Wall Street. And you know something? They’ll get it. They’ll get it all from you sooner or later 'cause they own this fuckin' place. It’s a big club and you ain't in it. You and I are not in the big club.... The table is tilted, folks. The game is rigged and nobody seems to notice.... And nobody seems to notice. Nobody seems to care. That’s what the owners count on. The fact that Americans will probably remain willfully ignorant of the big red, white and blue dick that’s being jammed up their assholes every day, because the owners of this country know the truth. It’s called the American Dream, 'cause you have to be asleep to believe it.
