    My father was showing a government agent, don't remember which one, around his J44. He showed him where his water tank was, his fuel tanks and his water ballast. When the Old Man pulled up the floorboards by the keel, the convex curve of the garboards from bottom to keel were just below.

    The agent asked my father, "What do you keep in those tanks?"

    My father answered, "The ocean."

    Drill here. o_O

    "He who thus domineers over you has only two eyes, only two hands, only one body, no more than is possessed by the least man among the infinite numbers dwelling in your cities; he has indeed nothing more than the power that you confer upon him to destroy you."
    "Where has he acquired enough eyes to spy upon you, if you do not provide them yourselves? How can he have so many arms to beat you with, if he does not borrow them from you?"

    "The feet that trample down your cities, where does he get them if they are not your own? How does he have any power over you except through you?"
    "How would he dare assail you if he had no cooperation from you? What could he do to you if you yourselves did not connive with the thief who plunders you, if you were not accomplices of the murderer who kills you, if you were not traitors to yourselves?"

    The Politics Of Obedience
    Étienne de la Boétie
