There are those who are arseholes for one day.
and they are forgiven
There are those who are arseholes for many days
and they are a real pain
There are those who are arseholes all their lives
and they are the ruling class.
Actually Brecht was talking about us:-
“There are men that fight one day and are good, others fight one year and they’re better, and there are those who fight many years and are very good, but there are the ones who fight their whole lives and those are the indispensable ones”.
