An Interesting quote

Violence is the first refuge of the incompetent.
—Isaac Asimov

Sort of like the Ambrose Bierce Quote I like:

Combustible rubbish ready to the torch of any one ambitious to illuminate his name.

In Dr. Johnson's famous dictionary patriotism is defined as the last resort of a scoundrel. With all due respect to an enlightened but inferior lexicographer I beg to submit that it is the first.

Which leads to
One to whom the interests of a part seem superior to those of the whole. The dupe of statesmen and the tool of conquerors.
