Quote of the Day.....

Freedom of men under government is to have 

a standing rule to live by,

common to every one of that society and made 

by the legislative power vested in it and 

not to be subject to the inconstant, 

uncertain, arbitrary will of another man.

-- John Locke(1632-1704) 
English philosopher and political theorist.

Quote of the Day....

"Men in authority will always think that

criticism of their policies is dangerous.

They will always equate their policies

with patriotism, and find criticism subversive."

-- Henry Steele Commager(1902-1998) 
Source: Freedom and Order, 1966

Reality in modernist paradigm..........

In the context of modernity

Reality is not what it seems

As a construct

It is a suspension of disbelief.

Quote of the day.....

"We have never stopped sin by passing laws; and

in the same way, 

we are not going to take a great moral ideal

and achieve it merely by law."

-- Dwight D. Eisenhower
(1890-1969), 34th US President, WWII General
