Wake up call by Bertold Brecht

“Those who take the most from the table, teach contentment. Those for whom the taxes are destined, demand sacrifice. Those who eat their fill, speak to the hungry, of wonderful times to come. Those who lead the country into the abyss, call ruling difficult, for ordinary folk.”

Bertolt Brecht

(sounds familiar?)

PS: I know he was a marxist.  But I also know this statement is true most of the times…

    While I think Brecht was a bit of a bastard, this quote is spot on. Thank you.
