The urge to save humanity...

Someone posted this on Facebook,

 ‎"The urge to save humanity is almost always only a false-face for the urge to rule it."-- H. L. Mencken
(1880-1956) American Journalist, Editor, Essayist, Linguist, Lexicographer, and Critic

She added: I think Mencken is referencing those who not only have the urge but the certainty that they have been born to rule. And they know exactly where to start.

My thoughts?

Substitute humanity with Singapore and it sounds like my first class government - no sarcasm here. We believers of the Liberating King prefer to allow ourselves as new creations to be of use to our neighbors and according to the faith given to us, scale it up as necessary. We think small and let it grow big as needed. They think big and leave the small guys behind.


Then they realized their mistake and come back to drag the small guys along in case they don't get their vote at the next GE. And that my friends is a first class government because most others wouldn't even bother.
