The history of civilized society and the policy which shaped it has been called by pessimists a sea of blood, dirt and baseness. And if one takes the development of civilization purely according to the social results obtained so far, then indeed Gustave Flaubert was right in greeting the much celebrated “ascent of humanity” with the sarcastic remark: Hein, le progrès, quelle blague!

Mr Morales said the money saved would be used to increase the numbers of doctors and teachers. Mr Morales suggested that members of Congress should cut their salaries too.
