Philosophical Musings

I just Googled on this topic and the first two selections were "musings" on how to avoid abusive narcissists and how to use Xcopy for setting up software, so I figure this area is wide-open and I can say what ever I like about anything.  And so, here are my rants and random thoughts.

"A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can exist only until the voters discover they can vote themselves largesse (defined as a liberal gift) out of the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidate promising the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that democracy always collapses over a loose fiscal policy, always to be followed by a dictatorship."  -Alexander Fraser Tyler

"When people are the least sure, they are often the most dogmatic." -John Kenneth Galbraith
