"Igorance is not bliss. With ignorance there is a “Veil of Ignorance.” Some extraordinary people can do the full dance of the nine veils of ignorance, that’s seven veils of idiocy plus two extra veils as a stupid bonus. Bliss doesn’t even own a veil." Daniel Prokop

 

"The Mongolian Empire was the largest land empire in history. As it started to collapse, no one thought to say: “Hey, just hang on a minute. If this collapses, think of all the job losses. It would upset half the world’s trade. Sorry world, we know they can be ruthless and brutal but the Mongolian Empire is just too big to be allowed to collapse.”

 

"In a world where no one wants to take responsibility, there are many who want to take advantage." Daniel Prokop
