Is exactly like
Where you are right now
Only much much
Better.“

„Now two punctilious envoys, Thine and Mine,
Embroil the earth about a fancied line;
And, dwelling much on right and much on wrong,
Prove how the right is chiefly with the strong.“

—  Nicolas Boileau-Despréaux French poet and critic 1636 - 1711

Et le Mien et le Tien, deux frères pointilleux,
Par son ordre amenant les procès et la guerre,
En tous lieux de ce pas vont partager la terre ;
En tous lieux, sous les noms de bon droit et de tort,
Vont chez elle établir le seul droit du plus fort.
