Very nice quote...

Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded ≈ here and there, now and then ≈ are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty. This is known as "bad luck." --- Robert A. Heinlein
