Random Quotes That Seem to Have a Flint Connection

"Assume a collectivity made up of a wolf and a sheep. The happiness of the wolf consists in eating the sheep, that of the sheep in not being eaten. How is this collectivity to be made happy?"

— Economist Vilfredo Pareto (1848-1923)


  1. By recalling Dayne Walling.

  2. Is this like Pareto Logic? Any connection to that annoying spyware "Driver Cure" that obviously has some deal with internet providers because the free antivirus programs never seem to be able to get rid of it? Figures.

  3. Never thought of that. I wonder if the name is a ref. to ol' Vilfredo.

Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at
