I was reading slashdot, and the fortune on my slashdot home page was the following:
The universe is ruled by letting things take their course. It cannot be
ruled by interfering.
-- Chinese proverb
An interesting proverb from country that seems to prefer order to liberty. Now I'm painting with very broad strokes here, well more like a 12" roller than a brush. However, though provoking none the less.
