Oh sure every individual wants change... they want it, but in general when the people as a whole, as a nation can change, they do not.

Democracy keeps us free to a certain extent, but in general... it is the chain that keeps us fettered to the fear we have of asking for something different.

Today we could have changed the country... I wonder what "the people" have chosen, the frying pan or the oven?
