And it will leave you wondering what society has really learned over time. Based on the most recent election, it has learned nothing at all.
A well earned hat tip to American Digest.
There are only four things certain since Social Progress began.
That the Dog returns to his Vomit and the Sow returns to her Mire,
And the burnt Fool's bandaged finger goes wabbling back to the Fire;
When all men are paid for existing and no man must pay for his sins,
As surely as Water will wet us, as surely as Fire will burn,
The Gods of Wisdom and Virtue, with terror and slaughter return!
