Election Eve

Postby Blacklancer99 » Tue Nov 06, 2012 2:26 am

Something I've been thinking about recently as the the political ads have been trying to burrow into my brain.

“The major problem – one of the major problems, for there are several – one of the many major problems with governing people is that of whom you get to do it; or rather of who manages to get people to let them do it to them.

To summarize: it is a well known fact, that those people who most want to rule people are, ipso facto, those least suited to do it. To summarize the summary: anyone who is capable of getting themselves made President should on no account be allowed to do the job. To summarize the summary of the summary: people are a problem.”

Douglas Adams, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe
