The Aim of Practical Politics

Timothy Birdnow

Here are two quotes from H.L. Mencken that pretty much nails it:

"The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed, and hence clamorous to be led to safety, by an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary."

"The desire to save humanity is almost always a false-face for the desire to rule it."

3 Despite the fact that, FIFA 21is a great deal amusing to play, however just when you have those top and slanting players who accompany inbuilt abilities and obviously their redesigned form as well. In any case, getting these players to your record is practically simple; as there won't be a great deal that you ought to do to get them play for you however.

4 You have to wonder what Mencken and Will Rogers would say about the situation today. Would it be "Ho Hum, same old same-old" or would they say "Migod, it was bad when I was around but I could never have imagined something like this?"
