quote of the moment

We are governed at all levels by America's luckiest children, sons and
daughters of the abundance, and they call themselves optimists but
they're not optimists—they're unimaginative. They don't have faith,
they've just never been foreclosed on. They are stupid and they are
callous, and they don't mind it when people become disheartened. They
don't even notice.

opinion i agree with 100%, but could never have written so well myself)
