It seems fitting that the 5th of November occurs the day after our elections.
409 years ago a certain man was unhappy with the master that was ruling over him. He, like many of my friends today, wanted a different man’s boot pressing on his neck. And you know what? He actually tried to do something about it. While he, like many of the people who voted yesterday, didn’t get his desired result he still ended up remembered by people 409 years after the fact.
So the lesson for today is attempting to blow up parliament is much more productive than voting.
