The reformers’ main trouble is a blind spot when it comes to simple pragmatism. They know how to save the world, to save mankind from destruction, to save ten dollars a week against a rainy day. What they lack is actual experience. No man can expect to know how hard it is to save money when he’s never had to fight like the devil to get his hands on a dime.

That’s why Miguel wasn’t impressed by all the fine talk this bigshot gringo was handing out. Anybody can swear off water when he’s not dry as an old bone. Sort of “He laughs at scars who never felt a wound.” But Miguel was no idiot. He knew you can’t argue with a man who intends to kill you, if necessary, to save your life!--intro.
