"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Where Ignorance Is Bliss...

...'tis folly to be wise - or at least to do much reading.

I've spent a lot of time dipping in and out of books (The Retreat of Reason, The Prince & The Discourses), checking old links and re/discovering websites over the past few days (The Sentient Sentinel, Cutting Through the Matrix), so today even Jacqui Smith & other MPs' expenses or Sterling plunging on news of Brown's firesale now seem like a sideshow.
