Quote of the Day: Societal Stew

Quoth Edward Abbey (h/t reddit)

“Society is like a stew. If you don’t stir it up every once in a while then a layer of scum floats to the top.”

Although I would clarify this by saying “class society” as I consider it quite possible that we can design a society where scum rising to the top can be avoided by removing all “top” and “bottom”
