Well, it's always possible to abandon any question of making democracy
work and just enjoy the intellectual spectacle of power politics. There
are infinite pleasures there. Real delectations.  Particularly if you are
waiting for the revolution you can help pass the time by exploring Fate. I
suppose this is also a good way to help choose your newspapers. The good
ones present the objective truth:  that presidents have become emperors or
kings and it's interesting to see how they do it. Actually it's always
been that way. Everything is for the worst in the only possible world. Get
in the habit of saying "goodnight" at 7 A.M. It's a way of adjusting. It
will take a very long time before you actually have to participate. But by
then, adaptation will have occurred. It was always that way. Doctors will
write a prescription. Science will create a justification. Malthus will
find a successor. Progress isn't dead! Check out the good news in some of
the better German newspapers! Tomorrow is now! Enjoy it while it lasts!
