Bad Luck
« on: April 28, 2016, 11:52:10 am »
"Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded--here and there, now and then--are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty. This is known as "bad luck."--Robert Heinlein, Lazarus Long

Always liked Heinlein.  His fiction is where I learned to understand that we make our own luck.

I can't say I hate the government, but I am proudly distrustful of them.
