Important quotes

Saturday, 22 August 2009

"You catch wild pigs by finding a suitable place in the woods and putting corn on the ground. The pigs find it and begin to come everyday to eat the free corn. When they are used to coming every day, you put a fence down one side of the place where they are used to coming. When they get used to the fence, they begin to eat the corn again and you put up another side of the fence. They get used to that and start to eat again. You continue until you have all four sides of the fence up with a gate in the last side. -

Very good quote! Yes, some of us have woken up, and some did quite a while ago; but the rest seem to be sleepwalking into the now almost completely fenced-in future.

Perhaps we ought to get out before the gate is shut behind us…

Perhaps people need to be reminded that 'there ain't no such thing as a free lunch'...
