"What is the difference between a realist and a dreamer? The realist thinks that someday a UFO will come down and hover over the UN building, and that the aliens will come out of the UFO and offer to share their technology and solve all our world's problems.

The dreamer thinks maybe we can get our act together and do it ourselves."

Russian joke [It's a joke?] cited in William K. Hartmann, A Traveler's Guide to Mars.

I think you just restated the ends cannot justify the means. I've been around a while. This shit is much more blatant than I'm used to - but, unfortunately, it's hardly new.

People seem to act with respect to ends and means much like they do about the golden rule. Nice idea, but not really practical, at least not a lot of the time. The point I'm trying to make is that it's the only practical idea out there. So-called practical and tough-minded Realpolitik does nothing but provide a solid, tough pavement to hell.
