    I have never thought of the government as 'cute' or 'cuddly' -- I recognize them as predators! I think we might be better off in a dog-eat-dog world -- at least it would be more honest! But I believe it is our destiny to endeavor to constantly fix this system eternally -- that is the only way an ideal comes close to being achieved.
