Several hundred Moroccans, Algerians and Pakistanis stormed a border crossing area between Greece and Macedonia last Thursday. They tore down a large portion of a barbed wire fence at the crossing that had been put up to insure refugees went through the lawful checkpoints.

There, right in the midst of our lives, is that which satisfies the craving for inequality, and acts as a permanent reminder that medicine is not food. Hence a man’s reaction to monarchy is a kind of test. Monarchy can easily be debunked;' but watch the faces, mark the accents of the debunkers. These are the men whose tap-root in Eden has been cut: whom no rumor of the polyphony, the dance, can reach - men to whom pebbles laid in a row are more beautiful than an arch.

If this were not so, he would be allowed to practice coercion without himself being subject to coercive counter-measures from others, and would thus be more than their fellows.
