Quote of the week: Children of Dune on Revolution


I had a chance this we to watch one of my favorite sci-fi movie series: Dune and Children of Dune, based on the novels of Frank Herbert.

It is from the Children of Dune that the quote of the week came:

IF HISTORY TEACHES US ANYTHING IT IS SIMPLY THIS: EVERY REVOLUTION CARRIES WITHIN IT THE SEEDS OF ITS OWN DESTRUCTION…

Look at the great empires in the world and one will have to recognize how ultimately they all ended up falling indeed, but also look at revolutions from a wider perspective of the word: scientific revolution, the industrial revolution and the technical revolution that led us in to the age of information.
