With Suspicious Minds

we can't build our dreams, much less dream them.
Among the laws that rule human societies there is one which seems to be more precise and clear than all others. If men are to remain civilized or to become so, the art of associating together must grow and improve in the same ratio in which equality of conditions in increased. Alexis de Toguevile, Democracy in America, 1862
