Quote of the Day

“As I write, highly civilized human beings are flying overhead trying to kill me. They do not feel any enmity against me as an individual, nor I against them. They are only doing their duty, as the saying goes. Most of them, I have no doubt, are kind-hearted law-abiding men who would never dream of committing murder in private life. On the other hand, if one of them succeeds in blowing me to pieces with a well-placed bomb, he will never sleep any worse for it. He is serving his country, which has the power to absolve him from evil.”
— George Orwell London. UK. 1941

With a "highly civilized" culture like that, who needs an ultra-civilized, micromangaged, feudal-inspired, control-freaking new world order!
