It shouldn't be too much of a surprise that the Internet has evolved into a force strong enough to reflect the greatest hopes and fears of thosewho use it. After all, it was designed to withstand nuclear war, not just the puny huffs and puffs of politicians and religious fanatics.
If a sufficient number of people who wanted to stop war really did gather together, they would first of all begin by making war upon thosewho disagreed with them. And it is still more certain that they would make war on people who also want to stop wars but in another way.
those...who obstinately persist in manifest grave sin, are not to be admitted to Holy Communion.
Failures are divided into two classes those who thought and never did, and thosewho did and never thought.
Pure was thy life its bloody closeHath placed thee with the sons of light,Among the noble host of thoseWho perished in the cause of Right.
Accustomed to the veneer of noise, to the shibboleths of promotion, public relations, and market research, society is suspicious of thosewho value silence.
