Sometimes I copy things that I find on the Internet, put them in a file in the My Documents folder, and then forget about them for a while. Then, when I find them, I think, yeah, that's why I copied it. Here's a quote I found this morning:

Of all the tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busy-bodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

- C. S. Lewis

Seemed apropos in an election year, you know?
