Take Shelter

When I think about today’s financial idiocy, I cannot help but think of Thomas More’s words from “A Man for All Seasons” (Robert Bolt);

And when the last law was down, and the Devil turned around on you–where would you hide, Roper, the laws all being flat? This country’s planted thick with laws from coast to coast–man’s laws, not God’s–and if you cut them down…d’you really think you could stand upright in the winds that would blow then? Yes, I’d give the Devil benefit of law, for my own safety’s sake.”
