Scare Quote of the Day
Today’s quote comes from philosophy professor Martin Bunzl via the Washington Post:
I say: Better not to tempt me in the first place. Take the Hummers away. Don’t clutter my world with things I should not have. Don’t dangle them in front of me, creating desire, only to then try to have me renounce them. Just ban the damn two-cycle hedge trimmer and let me be done with the matter.
This quote and the accompanying attitude is quite frightening for a lover of plentiful choice like myself.
