“It is always in the nature of great wealth to be insanely tempted (though it should know from active experience how little wealth can give), to push on to more and more domination over the bodies of men—and it can do so best by attacking fixed social restraints.” Hilaire Belloc, Europe and the Faith.
There’s a lot of layers and truth packed into that Belloc quote (one of my favorite Belloc observations). He was writing about the wealthy who promoted the Reformation in 16th-century Britain. Today, I’d apply it to Soros and Company.Bookmark it: del.icio.us | Reddit | Slashdot | Digg | Facebook | Technorati | Google | StumbleUpon | Window Live | Tailrank | Furl | Netscape | Yahoo | BlinkList
