Some things never change

"It is sometimes essential to government to cause a man's disappearance without leaving any traces, so that no written forms or documents may defeat their wishes. It has always been so and always will be. Governments change yet they remain all alike."
Alexandre Dumas, The Count of Monte Cristo (DOWNLOAD e-book NOW)
