All the war-propaganda, all the screaming and lies and hatred, comes invariably from people who are not fighting.
Some people see Black Friday as a much-needed break for their wallet. I see it as retail outlets showing the customers the full weight of their contempt. The frenzy to buy cheap crap from China, the human downgrade of people fighting with each other over items they can probably live without, to me, is an insult.

A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
