A quote

Filed under: Odds 'n ends — totallygroovygirlfriday @ 7:47 am

From one of groovygirl’s favorite books:

“When the war’s over, perhaps we can be of some use in the world. Do you really think they’ll listen then? If not, we’ll just have to wait. We’ll pass the books on to our children, by word of mouth, and let our children wait, in turn, on the other people. A lot will be lost that way, of course. But you can’t make people listen. They have to come round in their own time, wondering what happened and why the world blew up under them. It can’t last.”

Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451

  1. That’s the answer I’ve been looking for,for a year now.

  2. I come from the perspective that all mankind is basically evil. With that premise in mind (one would be hard pressed to argue against it), the less government one has the better off the people who are governed. We are in the cyle of time in the United States in which something has got to break. It surely looks like the end of the Roman empire, but it’s still yet to be seen. Progressives, Democrats, Republicans … they are all the same. They think that THEY can save America. They can’t. Not with the answers that they are providing. I think a lot how Armstrong thinks in that you have to let the entire bomb explode and then step in with an economic fix afterwards. Lets just hope that that fix isn’t worse than what we have now.
