    •  It's Sir Thomas More in Bolt's A Man For All (8+ / 0-)

      Seasons.

      I wanted to include a little more but the character count wouldn't allow it.  I almost didn't use it because of that, but it's a line that I think of periodically with today's politics, and something once again struck me strongly when I decided to use it.

      More: Some men think the Earth is round, others think it flat; it is a matter capable of question. But if it is flat, will the King's command make it round? And if it is round, will the King's command flatten it?

        as hell, governments' inaction and enabling can make it hotter (as can individuals' decisions not to change our way of living on a personal level, but govts have leverage that individuals can't touch).

        I thought I was making one of those individual decisions to significantly change our way of life when I voted for Obama twice in '08.  I was wrong.  My bad.
