THOUGHTS TO PONDER for Oct. 4, 2017

Smaller Font Larger Font RSS 2.0

People whose lives are barren and insecure seem to show greater willingness to obey than people who are self-sufficient and self-confident. To the frustrated, freedom from responsibility is more attractive than freedom from restraint. They are eager to bargain their independence for relief from the burdens of willing, and deciding and being responsible for inevitable failure. They will willingly abdicate the directing of their lives to those who want to plan, command and shoulder all responsibility. Moreover, submission by all to supreme leader is an approach to their ideal of equality.  ~Eric Hoffer, The True Believer [1951]


"Violence is not necessary to destroy a civilization. Each civilization dies from indifference towards the unique values that created it." -- Nicolas Gomez D'avila
