Rueful Thought

, ,

For two hundred years we have sawed and sawed and sawed at the branch we are sitting on. And in the end much more suddenly than anyone has foreseen, our efforts were rewarded, and down we came. But unfortunately there had been a little mistake. The thing at the bottom was not a bed of roses after all, it was a cesspool full of barbed wire.

–George Orwell, 1940

Those who don’t learn from history, yada, yada, yada.

I am sad to say that yes, I do believe we have become too stupid to survive.

I always think about what Jefferson,Adams,Madison,Franklin and the others of the Founding would say about our complacency in putting up with the corruptocrats currently infesting our nation’s capital. I can see the disbelief in their faces and the way they shake their heads. I am ashamed.
