But after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy.

The other fork of the road — the one less traveled by — offers our last - our only chance to reach a destination that assures the preservation of the earth.” – Rachel Carson

    “Have a good weekend, all.” – echo2165
