it always amazes me that during the battle of Briton, the Brits whet on with their day to day lives almost as if it was not even happening. people went to work every day, public transportation was working.
Amazing. The close proximity to loss that England faced is amazing. The fact that they didn't lose, continued to live and still fought when clearly an underdog is impressive.

"[T]he people alone have an incontestable, unalienable, and indefeasible right to institute government and to reform, alter, or totally change the same when their protection, safety, prosperity, and happiness require it." --Samuel Adams
