quote for the day

"The crime, the betrayal of hope, is identical at both extremes. It lies in their cultish mystifying and worshipping - without a scintilla's evidence or proof - a golden past that irrefutably wasn't, and a cruel darkness that only now is parting from before our eyes."

David Brin, discussing the yearning for feudalism in some fantasy novels, etc.
