Civil Swivel

Syd Barrett asked us to ‘close our eyes to the octopus ride’… he saw the scarlet needles and he was right.

 

A few more random quotes that seem just a tad poignant this morning:

 

“The first duty of a man is to think for himself”― José Martí

“Poverty is the parent of revolution and crime.”― Aristotle

“We are who we think we are.”― Green Goblin

“Our great democracies still tend to think that a stupid man is more likely to be honest than a clever man.”― Bertrand Russell

“A little rebellion is a good thing. ”― Thomas Jefferson

“Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.”― John F. Kennedy

“Civil government, so far as it is instituted for the security of property, is in reality instituted for the defense of the rich against the poor, or of those who have some property against those who have none at all.”― Adam Smith
