«Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves.»
William Pitt the Younger, Speech in the House of Commons (18 November 1783)
Recently stumbled upon a channel («The Empire of the Mind») with a few interesting videos (but still too early to come to a conclusion about the channel itself, might be a case of putting too much emphasis on rational thought, dunno).
Anyway, one of the interesting videos was a review of «Master and Commander».
Nice comparison of the two outlooks (captain vs scientist) and where they end up in the end.
Recommended (both the review and the movie).
