On Democracy and Other Stuff

My friend Michel just sent me a couple of nuggets of wisdom.

'Those who are too smart to engage in politics are punished by being governed by those who are dumber...' -Plato

'We do not see things as they are. We see things as we are.' Talmud

Just stumbled on your blog when googling lesser known lyrics for "This Land is Your Land," by the way...good stuff.
