|Morozov I 254
Desires/needs/necessity/Illich/Morozov: Illich's thesis: Needs and desires are fixed. We must make hard moral decisions to distance ourselves from them. However, the needs are a completely modern creation; we treat them as flexible (...) and believe that they can be identified (either by quantification or greater self-control). Thus, the "satisfaction of needs" project does not seem to us to be moral in any way. (Ivan Illich in an interview with the Canadian radio program CBC, 1987).
