Today's quote

"The men whom the people ought to choose to represent them are too busy to take the jobs. But the politician is waiting for it. He’s the pestilence of modern times. What we should try to do is make politics as local as possible. Keep the politicians near enough to kick them. The villagers who met under the village tree could also hang their politicians to the tree. It’s terrible to contemplate how few politicians are hung today." ~ G.K. Chesterton (1921 Interview with the Cleveland Press)

Today's quote

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”      C.S. Lewis

Civil War quote - in honor of Gettysburg

“For every Southern boy fourteen years old, not once but whenever he wants it, there is the instant when it’s still not yet two o’clock on that July afternoon in 1863, the brigades are in position behind the rail fence. . . . That moment doesn’t need even a fourteen-year-old boy to think This time. Maybe this time with all this much to lose and all this much to gain: Pennsylvania, Maryland, the world, the golden dome of Washington itself.”       William Faulkner

Cognitive dissidence

One of the hallmarks of progressive “thought” is the ability to hold two diametrically-opposed and directly contradictory positions simultaneously, and insist that they are not only not contradictory, but that both of them are absolutely true, as well as being morally superior to anyone else’s opinions on either subject.
It is often encountered when progressives are busy trying to abolish an object or business they loathe (automobiles, tobacco, guns), while still trying to figure out some way to keep making money (tax revenue) off it. This is a classic example.
In the real world, someone with this “split” worldview would be defined (clinically) as suffering from a schizoid disorder. In progressive circles, it is defined as a higher plane of “enlightenment”.

Today's quote

"As democracy is perfected, the office of the President represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people.  On some great and glorious day, the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be occupied by a downright fool and complete narcissistic moron."
