True education makes for inequality; the inequality of individuality,
the inequality of success; the glorious inequality of talent, of genius---
for inequality, not mediocrity; individual superiority,
not standardization, is the measure of the progress of the world. "

- Felix Emmanuel Schelling, American educator and scholar (1858-1945).

"I got my mind right, boss" --Lucas Johnson, aka Luke

From P.J. O'Rourke in "Parliament of Whores":

But although this is a conservative book, it is not informed by any very elaborate political theory. I have only one firm
belief about the American political system, and it is this: God is a Republican and Santa Claus is a Democrat.

God is an elderly, or, at any rate, middle-aged male, a stern fellow, patriarchal rather than paternal and a great
believer in rules and regulations. He holds men strictly accountable for their actions. He has little apparent concern
for the material well-being of the disadvantaged. He is politically connected, socially powerful, and holds the mortgage
on literally everything in the world. God is difficult, God is unsentimental. It is very hard to get into God's heavenly country club.

Santa Claus is another matter. He's cute. He's nonthreatening. He's always cheerful, and he loves animals. He may
know who's been naughty and who's been nice, but he never does anything about it. He gives everyone everthing
they want without thought of a quid pro quo. He works hard for charities, and he's famously generous to the poor.

Santa Claus is preferable to God in every way but one: There is no such thing as Santa Claus.

Monty Python: An Apology to Politicians:

We would like to apologize for the way in which politicians are represented in this programme.

It was never our intention to imply that politicians are weak kneed political time-servers who are concerned
more with their personal vendettas and private power struggles than the problems of government.

Nor to suggest at any point that they sacrifice their credibility by denying free debate on vital matter in the
mistaken impression that party unity comes before the well being of the people they supposedly represent

Nor to imply at any stage that they are squabbling little toadies without an ounce of concern for the vital social problems of today.

Nor indeed do we intend that viewers should consider them as crabby, ulcerous, little self-seeking vermin with furry legs
and an excessive addiction to alchohol and certain explicit sexual practices which some people might find offensive.

We are sorry if this impression has come across.

U.S. Constitution

I am nerdier than 37% of all people. Are you nerdier? Click here to find out!

Cowardice asks the question, 'Is it safe?' Expediency asks the question, 'Is it politic?' Vanity asks the question, 'Is it popular?' But, conscience asks the question, 'Is it right?' And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but one must take it because one's conscience tells one that it is right." -- Martin Luther King Jr.

A just law is a man-made code that squares with the moral law or the law of God. An unjust law is a code that is out of harmony with the moral law. -- Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

There is no neutral ground in the universe--every square inch, every split second, is claimed by God and counterclaimed by Satan. -- C.S. Lewis

A vitiated state of morals, a corrupted public conscience, are incompatible with freedom. --Patrick Henry

We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge or gallantry would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution is designed only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate for any other. -- President John Adams

The foundation of national morality must be laid in private families...How is it possible that children can have any just sense of the sacred obligations of morality or religion if, from their earliest infancy, they learn their mothers live in habitual infidelity to their fathers, and their fathers in as constant infidelity to their mothers? -- John Adams

When there is a lack of honor in government, the morals of the whole people are poisoned. There is no such thing as a no-man's land between honesty and dishonesty. Our strength lies in spiritual concepts. It lies in public sensitiveness to evil. Our greatest danger is not from invasion by foreign armies. Our dangers are that we may commit suicide from within by complaisance with evil, or by public tolerance of scandalous behavior. -- President Herbert Hoover

Virtue, morality, and religion. This is the armor, my friend, and this alone that renders us invincible. These are the tactics we should study. If we lose these, we are conquered. -- Patrick Henry

Bad men cannot make good citizens. It is when a people forget God that tyrants forge their chains. A vitiated state of morals, a corrupted public conscience, is incompatible with freedom. No free government, or the blessings of liberty, can be preserved to any people but by a firm adherence to justice, moderation, temperance, frugality, and virtue; and by a frequent recurrence to fundamental principles. -- Patrick Henry

A politician is concerned about the next election. A statesman is concerned about the next generation. -- unknown

We have staked the whole future of our new nation, not upon the power of government; far from it. We have staked the future of all our political constitutions upon the capacity of each of ourselves to govern ourselves according to the moral principles of the Ten Commandments. -- James Madison

...Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports...And let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion...Whatever may be conceded to the influence of refined education--reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle. It is substantially true, that virtue or morality is a necessary spring of popular government.... -- from George Washington's Farewell Address
