A little balance

There was some discussion of "Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote."

There's a quote I can't track down-- I thought it was from Burke, but it's to the effect that a man should go about revolution with the same care he'd bring to doing surgery on his father.

I believe that violence is sometimes necessary, but a lot of people are much too light-hearted in the way they talk about it, and possibly in the way they think about it as well.
