Quote of the Day - Betters?

"I’m always fascinated by people who think that humans are too stupid to manage their own lives, but as long as the same, stupid humans are ‘elected’ into an office or ‘picked by those elected into office’ that somehow their stupidity is erased and suddenly, they are braniac geniuses who somehow manage to overcome the basic human instinct of self-preservation and betterment and are wholly sinless beings without fault."

- Robb Allen

Yup.  I will never understand the thinking of people who think politicians should run amok telling people how to live their lives because the general public is just too damn stupid.  You just want to scream at these people and say "And who elected these wise, omnipotent politicians? Those very same stupid members of the general public. And where did those wise philosopher kings come from? Oh, from within the same general public that can't be trusted to live their own lives."


In the end I, like Robb, just don't get it, and probably never will.
