Human beings will be happier - not when they cure cancer or get to Mars or eliminate racial prejudice or flush Lake Erie but when they find ways to inhabit primitive communities again. That's my utopia.

Missle Defence a Done Deal
The Martin government decided to sign on to missile defence because the Americans will proceed with it whatever we do.
