Patrick Henry: ..."It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace²but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!"

Roulette is very predictable, even when it plays out contrary to our expectations.

some good ones:

“Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch.” – Benjamin Franklin
“If voting made any difference they wouldn’t let us do it.” – Mark Twain
“Every election is a sort of advance auction sale of stolen goods.” – H.L. Mencken
“It makes no difference whom you vote for – the two parties are really one party representing four percent of the people.” – Gore Vidal
“It’s not the voting that’s democracy, it’s the counting.” – Tom Stoppard
“No matter who you vote for, the government always gets in.” – Neil Innes
“The difference between a democracy and a dictatorship is that in a democracy you vote first and take orders later; in a dictatorship you don’t have to waste your time voting.” – Charles Bukowski
“Perhaps the fact that we have seen millions voting themselves into complete dependence on a tyrant has made our generation understand that to choose one’s government is not necessarily to secure freedom.” – Friedrich Hayek
“In politics we face the choice between warmongering, nation-state loving, big-business agents on one hand; and risk-blind, top-down, epistemic arrogant big servants of large employers on the other. But we have a choice.” – Nassim Nicholas Taleb

The past is like a black hole. If you get too close, it might pull you in and you'll disappear.

The past is a window to life lived. If you see a black hole...run!
