walled off astoria

Walled Off Hotel | Bethlehem, Israël | design: Banksy

Do you really mean to tell me the only reason you try to be good is to gain God’s approval and reward, or to avoid his disapproval and punishment? That’s not morality, that’s just sucking up, apple-polishing, looking over your shoulder at the great surveillance camera in the sky, or the still small wiretap inside your head, monitoring your every move, even your every base though—Richard Dawkins

You can’t have a bad time at the Walled Off Astoria. It’s not allowed. They have hidden electronic surveillance cameras everywhere, and if they catch you failing to laugh with childlike wonder, they lock you inside a costume representing a beloved Palestinian character such as Yasser Arafat and make you walk about in the biblical heat getting grabbed and leaped on by violently excited children until you have learned your lesson — Dave Kopjes
