That was a fine effort Virginia, though I'm sure you gave the quote much more meaning than it inherently contains.
TDF has been quite lazy in quote selection for some time. I have a theory that it is randomly chosen from a shallow pool of sources by AI.

Miguel de Cervantes (1547-1616)

Topic: You can never have a revolution in order to establish a democracy. You must have a democracy in order to have a revolution.
