The Circumlocution Office: Containing the whole Science of Government

I always did like Dickens' writing. He keeps me up on proper language usage.
And his characters' names, I like that too.

One of those observations on human governance that's timeless. There really isn't anything new under the sun when it comes to human nature.

Those of us today railing against the corruption and uselessness of the Republican party forget that the character of our governors and the complaints of the governed has changed little from the beginning of civilization only we did not previously know it except what is written down by historians. The (relatively new) wrinkle is the desire (by leftists) to control the minutia of the lives of the individual. Previously the peons could starve in the streets without excessive attention of the rulers. They had liberty if not abundance. At the end of our road we will have neither.

I am employed as a circumlocution enabler. Pay's decent and so are the benefits.

When you folks come with the pitchforks, I will hand over a list of people to be dispatched.
