"Nothing burns as well as ignorance."
-Translated from the Italian "niente brucia così bene come l'ignoranza", from Immanuel Casto's song "Piromane" (Pyromaniac)

It's a quote that resonates with me even though I struggle to unpack it, it has a villainy feel but...

I just heard this line from Hellsing Ultimate and it gets all sorts of gears a-grinding in my head:

"Only a human can destroy a monster. Only a human could dare hope to."
~Alucard, to Alexander Anderson, Hellsing Ultimate episode 9

“And the answer, said the judge. If God meant to interfere in the degeneracy of mankind would he not have done so by now? Wolves cull themselves, man. What other creature could? And is the race of man not more predacious yet? The way of the world is to bloom and to flower and die but in the affairs of men there is no waning and the noon of his expression signals the onset of night. His spirit is exhausted at the peak of its achievement. His meridian is at once his darkening and the evening of his day. He loves games? Let him play for stakes. This you see here, these ruins wondered at by tribes of savages, do you not think that this will be again? Aye. And again. With other people, with other sons.”

― Cormac McCarthy, Blood Meridian

*"To YMTC it up" means to design cards that have value mostly from a design perspective. i.e. you would put them in a case under glass in your living room and visitors could remark upon the wonderful design principles, with nobody ever worring if the cards are annoying/pointless/confusing in actual play
