I was going to write about how fucked up government is, and perhaps I will yet.
But while sitting staring at the screen I was scrolling through one of my daily quote programmes and found something much more apt, and eloquent than I could ever manage:
Thomas Jefferson on government in the 18th century:
“It is the group within society that claims for itself the exclusive right to rule everyone under a special set of laws that permit it to do to others what everyone else is rightly prohibited from doing, namely aggressing against person and property.”
Ring any bells?
