On appeasement

"An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile - hoping it will eat him last"
Winston Churchill
I've always appreciated the man's ability to put impossible-to-comprehend adversity into perspective. Not that I want to overstate it, but he led his nation through a period where it stared into the abyss of a new dark age, and fought back.

Amazingly, his words seem align as cleanly with today's world as they did back then. I wonder what he'd think if he could see today's leaders in action.

Or maybe I don't want to know.

He'd probably be the first man to be happy that he passed on from this world we call today....
