Okay, så der er to ugens citat. Sue me.
Fra en nyhedsartikel i Berlingske forleden omhandlende (hvis jeg husker ret – jeg har ikke andet end citatet, som jeg rev ud af avisen) de tyske partier de Grønne og FDP’s reaktion på, at dømte medlemmer af Rote Armee Fraktion nu står til at blive løsladt efter endt dom:
“De Grønne er det demokratiske resultat af studenteroprøret – de aktivister, der ikke endte som terrorister, søgte typisk til dette parti.”
“…it is interesting to compare the approach to measuring the social costs of rent seeking just described with the attempt by Phillips (1966) some time ago to measure “the social costs of monopoly capitalism.” He too proceeded by adding different items from the national income accounts. His criterion was different, however; namely, activities that existed under monopoly capitalism that would not exist in an ideal socialist state. Thus, he included all defense expenditures, since in 1966 these were solely intended to protect American capitalism from Soviet communism. (…) Interestingly, Phillips included all the income of lawyers as part of the social cost of monopoly capitalism. (…) Phillips also included all advertising. When he finished his list summed to 50 percent of GDP.”

Lyrics of the MomentThe Who ~ Won't Be Fooled Again
We'll be fighting in the streets
With our children at our feet
And the morals that they worship will be gone
And the men who spurred us on
Sit in judgment of all wrong
They decide and the shotgun sings the song
I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I'll get on my knees and pray
We don't get fooled again
The change, it had to come
We knew it all along
We were liberated from the fold, that's all
And the world looks just the same
And history ain't changed
'Cause the banners, they were all flown in the last war
Meet the new boss
Same as the old boss
