Two excellent quotes

Both of these quotes are currently featured at one of my favorite blogs, Not PC.  The first is truly beautiful:
Ineptocracy: A system of government where the least capable
to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where
the members of society least likely  to sustain themselves or succeed,
are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated
wealth of a diminishing number of producers.”
- Anonymous

And the second, tremendously astute:

“A political battle is merely a skirmish fought with
muskets; a philosophical battle is a nuclear war.”
- Ayn Rand, from her essay “What Can One Do?”
in her book Philosophy: Who Needs It
