Warning someone is expressing their opinion. You are welcome to agree or of course you can ridicule them for their insane sense of logic.

well, since you insist....i was going to write a long post, but found that one word will do.


.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called the government. They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

What  :? Huh  :?

Was that as hard to read as I thought it was or did my ADHD kick in again?
