Words I wish I wrote myself, n. 1

“Personally, I believe that when faced with an imperial power – and let’s not kid ourselves, that’s exactly what the USA is – one ought to do everything non-violent that one can do to resist it, just on principle.

The USA is a great country full of great people. It’s just their propensity as a whole for electing idiots and then conducting a foreign policy of the utmost depravity that I object to.”

Iain Banks, The Steep Approach to Garbadale

Possibly first of a series. I don’t think it will be regular, I’ll just post them when I meet them, whenever I feel like it.

And, to my US friends – nothing personal! As an Italian, I can teach you a few things myself about electing idiots.
