“You can't say civilization don't advance... in every war they kill you in a new way.”
Will Rogers 1879-1935)

Quote:
In democracy after a hundred years you have to let your slaves go. And after a hundred and fifty years you have to let your women vote. And at the beginning of democracy is quite a bit of genocide and ethnic cleansing. It's quite okay.

~Kurt Vonnegut


Quote:
Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote.

~-Benjamin Franklin
