Over and over again, true believers make the same fundamental mistake: they consider themselves to be righteous, not because they themselves do what's right, but because they try to force others to do what's right.
Words of wisdom.

Believing absolutely in the ideals of Washington, Jefferson, and Lincoln isn't going to get you into much trouble. Believing absolutely in Marx, Lenin, and Stalin is another story.
Well, of course, unless you're last name's "Clinton"...

I've often thought that "Logic 101" should be a required class in school, starting in 1st Grade. In a sense, the only place children are instructed in the workings of logic in school is in mathematics. If we started at a young age and instructed children in the mechanisms of logic, perhaps we would go a long way towards avoiding the moral ambiguity we find in today's population. It would at least make it harder for the historical revisionists and moral relativists to come along later and corrupt our nation's youth. Just a thought.
