People are fucking stupid cowards, for the most part.
When the odd person shows up who ISN'T a stupid coward, the mob descends.
Or if the mob doesn't get the scent of blood first, the overlords stage a hit.
it's a great system they've got going, 'cause most of the time the mob does all the work.
Free thought policing.
Free courage killing.
Free peer pressure.
If only they could monetize it, though. Then they'd REALLY have a good thing going.
if I could teach the world one lesson it would be to honour brave people - they are rare, and getting more so. Why? Because you're staging an ethic cleansing.
If you aren't part of the solution, you're a part of the problem.
Satire is a sort of glass, wherein beholders do generally discover everybody's face but their own.-- Jonathan Swift
When a true genius appears, you can know him by this sign: that all the dunces are in a confederacy against him. -- Jonathan Swift
