Funny how great ideas have been expressed hundreds of years ago and yet we still ignore them, stupid humans.

Like that one? Too bad Bush'll never read it. Or, if he did, comprehend its significance. Here's another one that rings true today:

"When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men living together in society, they create for themselves in the course of time a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it."
- Frederick Bastiat; economist, statesman, author of The Law

And, just for kicks:

"The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of Conservatives is to prevent mistakes from being corrected. Even when the revolutionist might himself repent of his revolution, the traditionalist is already defending it as part of his tradition. Thus we have two great types---the advanced person who rushes us into ruin, and the retrospective person who admires the ruins."
- G. K. Chesterton

Haha I like the last one, I'm a bit of a cynic that way.
