you say you want a revolution...

On January 10, 1776, an Englishman and revolutionary self-pulished the pamphlet Common Sense:

"Society in every state is a blessing, but government, even in its best state, is but a necessary evil; in its worst state an intolerable one; for when we suffer or are exposed to the same miseries by a government, which we might expect in a country without government, our calamity is heightened by reflecting that we furnish the means by which we suffer.” 
~ Thomas Paine


  1. Wow, an interesting thought :(

  2. Love the last two - timely! Thanks!

  3. We're trying to keep the revolution theme going here. It's been pretty easy as austerity measures continue to be tossed about & the euro goes for a ride :)
