Re: End of the Revolution

Dick Armey, former House majority leader, wrote an interesting op-ed piece in the Wall Street Journal of Thursday, 9 November, 2006. I gather that he and many of us are pleased that now, finally, we will be blessed with good and capable government leaders. And of course that Michael J Fox will finally be cured of his Parkinson's Disease. Perhaps Christopher Reeves will rise up and walk again too.

A pull quote from the middle of his article captured my attention: "I've always wondered why Republicans insist on acting like Democrats in hopes of retaining political power, while Democrats act like us to win." (emphasis on "retaining" and "win" in the original)

“In beholding old stones we may feel our anxieties about our achievements–and lack of them–slacken . . . Vast landscapes [and seascapes] can have an anxiety–reducing effect similar to ruins, for they are the representatives of infinite space, as ruins are the representatives of infinite time, against which our weak, short-lived bodies seem no less inconsequential than those of moths or spiders.”—Alain de Botton in Status Anxiety
