Common folks ure like cows:
Feed 'em well n they'll be fine
Baah don't to put serious ideas in dare bovine skulls.
Wise politicians never mooke mistakes –
They jes silence zoes who zink so.
Expediency kunts more zan ideology -
So all favorable regimes are "democracies"
And zoes which aren't are bomb targets.
Intellectuals should keep deir heads in zeir books –
They don't understand how ta run government$.
Nuthing is more disastrous thun eggheads
Dinking dey haf special insights.
Government$ are run by
guts, guns, greed, 'n propaganda –
Not queer theories err statistics.
What kun't be accomplished by
rigged elections err bribe$
Kun always be achieved by well-placed bombs.
Image is paramount.
Politicians gotta look klean
So if dirty work haz ta be dun
Hire professionals ta do it discreetly.
Carrots err better dan sticks
Butt when things get tough
The end iz whad kountz:
Victory iz zie ultimate trick.
The best way ta fight terrorism
Iz through terror.
The best way ta fight poverty
Iz give dah rich more wealth.
The best way ta run a government
Iz ta privatize dah damn thing!
The United Nations is
a pipe dream of bourgeoisie snobs
& stinkin' pinko kummunists:
Freedom-luvin corporate cowboys
won't B gelded!

|Kris:||Machiavelli still rules. From that perspective, formal law is mere pretense. Power alone is paramount.|
|Tim:||It's not sustainable. We need a respect for transpersonal laws. Without that,
life will always be barbaric and at the edge of collapse.
