Neither your cause nor your candidate are exceptions

August 8, 2020

I am of the opinion that both William Pitt the Younger and Daniel Webster were correct. Right about what, you ask?

William Pitt the Younger:

Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves.

Daniel Webster:

Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority. It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters.

Sadly, most people seem to be convinced that this cause or that politician are somehow magical exceptions.
