Slobber And Spittle: Quote Of The Day

Slobber And Spittle: Quote Of The Day:

'via Blog this'

David Swanson, in discussing the relationship that the Occupy movements and politics should have to each other:
The best way to improve the elections is to improve the society. The best way to destroy the society is to focus too heavily on elections. The rational choice between two bums who are both worse than the two who were offered up in the previous election cannot possibly be rational.

Occupy the Winter of Our Discontent
I love the bit about rational choices. As I've noted, Ralph Nader's admonition that when you choose between two evils, what you end up with is evil, is just as true today. When you're in the habit of just choosing the lesser evil, the evils will get worse over time.
