Politicians

I found this quote today in a discussion of the Democrat health care bill which is being forced on this country against the overwhelming will of the people. Unfortunately I believe it applies to the vast majority of people that currently hold public office.

Half the harm that is done in this world
Is due to people who want to feel important
They don’t mean to do harm ­
But the harm does not interest them.
Or they do not see it, or they justify it
Because they are absorbed in the endless struggle
To think well of themselves.

T. S. Eliot
