Do you have pulse? Are you breathing?

"Liberty is a bitch who must be bedded on a mattress of corpses."

"What constitutes a republic is the total destruction of everything that stands in opposition to it."

"The conspirators who have died, think you they were the children of liberty, because for one brief moment they resembled them?"

"Those who would make revolutions in the world, those who want to do good in this world must sleep only in the tomb."
- Louis Antoine Léon Florelle de Saint-Just

What it all boils down to is this;

MIGHT MAKES RIGHT.

The owners of smartest brains, the biggest, best-trained muscles, the most agile, most clever, most ruthless, the owners of the biggest, fastest, deadliest guns –– and the most gold –– MUST be in control, because no one else DESERVES to be.

That's pretty cynical, but "muddled", FT. Is it brains or brawn?

And how do you explain the success of the Enlightenment?

Thersites said...

Organized brawn? But which is better, tightly organized brawn, or loosely organized brawn? And Isn't it easier to loosely organize large quantities of brawn, than to tightly organize small batches of it?

Oo-o-or! (shivers) The one on the water, she could get MY Will to Power going again. Get your nails into me, please! ;-)
