Re: re fools anyone

I'm not referring to any particular event recently, other than the general belief (of mine), that slow-boiling a frog generally works (we're talking about humans) - until a certain point. And, every now and then, in the course of history, the frogs make a leap for it, and bite madly around. But then, maybe we've been already made toothless (by technology?), and we're not frogs but just sheep, to be fed, regularly shorn (always for their own good!) - as long as they stay within prescribed area of sheep behaviour (chew, shit, get shorn, repeat).

Not that I endorse froggy violence (disclaimer from under a tin-foil hat duly noted, I hope), because violence is generally blind and instead of correcting the wrong, it just hurts innocents.
