Plus ca change, plus c'est le meme chose

From the 1938 Frank Capra film, You Can't Take It With You:

Lincoln said, "With malice toward none; with charity to all." Nowadays they say, "Think the way I do, or I'll bomb the daylights out of you."

The more things change, the more they stay the same. Military-industrial complex and animal spirits, 1; human wisdom, 0.
