I’m reading The Restaurant At The End Of The Universe, and I’m pretty much laughing multiple times in every page. But this one gets to be the blogged quote:
The major problem – one of the major problems, for there are several – one of the many major problems with governing people is that of whom you get to do it; or rather of who manages to get people to let them do it to them.
To summarize: it is a well-known fact that those people who must want to rule people are, ipso facto, those least suited to do it. To summarize the summary: anyone who is capable of getting themselves made President should on no account be allowed to do the job. To summarize the summary of the summary: people are a problem.
Funnily enough, Douglas Adams summarizes our current politics well, doesn’t he?
