“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Rules of the Road

UK: There are rules, which is why I had to run you over with my car. I was going at the speed limit.
California: There are rules. But I don't want to be seen enforcing them, even by myself.
New York: There are rules. Outta my way!
Colorado: You are not going to immigrate onto my highway. Nope. Gonna slow down to 50 just to make sure you don't.
Texas: Are there rules? Maybe there are…This stop sign looks like it might be a rule...oh wait, there isn't one right now--oops, maybe there is one.
