Reflections on partisanship: 1662

...for thus it may be said, the world goes mad by turns.

--From History of his own Times--

I wonder why it seems like this sometimes: one crazy party replaced by another, each over-reaching and full of excess. Perhaps because when a party achieves victory over its opposition, they assume they have won a victory that can't be overturned. They forget that they are just as replaceable as the people they've replaced.
