"...doesn't philosophy amount to the sum of all thinkable and unthinkable errors, ceaselessly repeated?"--Jean-Luc Marion

“The opposite of poverty is not wealth; the opposite of poverty is justice."--Bryan Stevenson

Meanwhile, back at the arena.....

I have lived long enough to see that. I also have lived long enough to know that some people will bring their own punchbowl to the party just to piss in it.

This, apparently, is what democracy looks like.
Well, yeah, it is; because democracy is people, and people are messy.   Especially the ones who think "winning" means "getting everything I want."  Although usually we give those people a special label:  "Children."

I post this mostly to say, however:  what NTodd said.
