"The Founders would be proud if we took more seriously, and taught our children more deliberately, at least these four core truths about human nature and government: We're flawed -- and naturally inclined to fight. Those who wield government power shouldn't be trusted to resolve many fights or to declare many winners and losers. Politicians shouldn't confuse their temporary roles with ultimate meaning. Citizens in a republic must cultivate humility -- or the experiment will inevitably collapse."
- Ben Sasse
