Quote Of The Day

From this post about climate doom-mongering comes this quote that could easily apply to politics and ideologies in general:

Reality imposes constraints even on people who are detached from it.

When the 'detached' are slapped in the face by reality, they are usually the ones screaming the loudest about how “unfair” reality is being. They demand 'someone' do something about it, even if that something defies the laws of physics.

The rest of us understand that life in general is unfair. Bitching about it merely gives us some temporary emotional relief, but doesn't change life's basic unfairness. We just carry on living our lives and deal with life's inequities.
