We don't know we're born....

Louis CK has it spot on in this clip. When I recall the stories from my own parents about when they were growing up in the 1920's and 30's, about the large families many people used to have because child mortality was so high, of kids going to school in threadbare clothes and rags wrapped around their feet. We know little or nothing of real poverty, and the technology that underpins our day to day lives is little short of miraculous, yet I see people get all aerated because there's the occasional glitch. We have it far better than ever before, yet all we do is bitch about the trivia in life, while our freedom of thought, speech and movement that helped bring out our technological success is salami sliced away by politicians who only seem to care about their own expense accounts and have only half an idea about what they're doing.

Innovation comes from people. Politicians know nothing.
