"Yet to imagine that installing a particular individual in the Oval Office
will produce decisive action on any of these fronts (terrorism and nuclear
weapons, climate change and poverty, genocide and disease) is to succomb to
the grandest delusion of all.  The quadrennial ritual of electing (or
reelecting) a president is not an exercise in promoting change, regardless
of what candidates may claim and ordinary voters believe.  The real aim is
to ensure continuity, to keep intact the institutions and arrangements that
define present-day Washington."  Andrew J. Bacevich, The Limits of Power, p.


"If you think the City of Chicago is going to elect a new mayor every 4
years and he is going to come out here and do your work for you, you're
wrong.  If this community is going to be different it will be because of
you.  You're going to have to do it yourself"  Verdell Trice, paraphrased
from the Fifth City video.


hmmm . . . .


I just finished reading The Limits of Power.  Anyone interested in forming a
discussion group to study it?
