Corruptio optimi pessima - the corruption of the best as the worst case. You can't say the true things often enough [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

To throw in only another quote for now, Clausewitz said the most drastical methods are justified in war if they shorten it. Drastical times demand drastical means -- I think the use of the palantŪr by Denethor was correct. It turned out wrong, and the Wise would have rightly warned him, but that does not meant he felled a fundamentally wrong decision in his system of politics.

Apart from that, the discussion has reached a point for me where subjective interest no longer forces me to reply, so I have to ask for patience with a more elaborate reply.
