Quote of the Day: Jim Butcher

The above quoted passage is from Jim Butcher’s The Aeronaut’s Windlass. In it he talks about democracy’s violent heart. Before reading this passage, I never really gave thought to democracy and elections symbolism. Decisions that had once been made by battle, now decided by the people. We count votes to determine winners and losers and not bodies. Battles won and lost by the opinion of the public and not strength of arms.

Cheers on this 4th of July, james
