Wednesday Wisdom

The people I distrust most are those who want to improve our lives but have only one course of action.

Frank Herbert


  1. Sounds like al gore to me. He says he wants to improve my life but his only course so far has been to improve his own.

  2. Gore no doubt stands at the pinnacle Cubicle, but goodness knows there are plenty out there in the wilds of the world insisting on a singular, and singularly narrow, path to our collective salvation.

    The human mind is quite capable of grasping complexity, yet increasingly we're offered simplistic, hammer headed, actions, as if we're incapable of creative thought. Alas, the younger generations (who keep telling us what a shocker job we've done, and how they'll do it better) are firmly on the simple-thinking bandwagon.

    How the hell did things get this dumb? :-(
