An interesting quote found on a wikileaks page

"A science is said to be useful if its development tends to accentuate the existing inequalities in the distribution of wealth, or more directly promotes the destruction of human life..."
— G. H Hardy, A mathematician's apology (1941)

It takes a little thinking, but it is also a very elegant way of saying that you can only be successful by making "the man" MORE successful in proportion or if it helps kill people.
