"By commission and by omission our political classes are polluting both the national psyche and the demographic. When the biomass of parasites and predators, and their appeasers, exceeds that of the net contributors the latter will become the victims of a system of governance that has no other recourse than to bleed them dry. It is under such a burden that the wealth of nations — fiscal, moral, and cultural — haemorrhages away, and chaos precedes the descent into tyranny."
Gates of Vienna
"..in this the winter of my years I look out across this once green and pleasant land and I am taken by a consummate anger."
Seneca 111 (who wrote the above)
