Yeah, that is very prescient. But, on the other hand, many things in the constitution are totally moot by now.
Quote from: SeekinTruth linkYeah, that is very prescient. But, on the other hand, many things in the constitution are totally moot by now.Yes, totally, yet Rush in 1776 obviously must have been overruled and if not, indeed it would likely be moot, yet it would have had precedence, aside from the general regard for moral health responsibility, which is out the window now.
Of all the enemies to public liberty, war is, perhaps, the most to be dreaded, because it comprises and develops the germ of every other. War is the parent of armies; from these proceed debts and taxes; and armies, and debts, and taxes are the known instruments for bringing the many under the domination of the few. In war, too, the discretionary power of the Executive is extended; its influence in dealing out offices, honors, and emoluments is multiplied; and all the means of seducing the minds are added to those of subduing the force of the people. The same malignant aspect in republicanism may be traced in the inequality of fortunes and the opportunities of fraud growing out of a state of war, and in the degeneracy of manners and of morals engendered by both. No nation could reserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare. Those truths are well established. They are read in every page which records the progression from a less arbitrary to a more arbitrary government, or the transition from a popular government to an aristocracy or a monarchy."
It is curious--curious that physical courage should be so common in the world, and moral courage so rare.
When you learn the steps, the Universe takes you dancing. Sometimes it's a crazy jitterbug, other times, it's a waltz; but it's never boring.

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.” —I Corinthians 13:4-8a

Love means never having to say you're sorry.”
Love means having to say you're sorry every fifteen minutes."
is there STS love and STO love existing simultaneously?
Love means to commit oneself without guarantee, to give oneself completely in the hope that our love will produce love in the loved person. Love is an act of faith, and whoever is of little faith is also of little love.
Since love grows within you, so beauty grows. For love is the beauty of the soul.
True love begins when nothing is looked for in return.
True love is eternal, infinite, and always like itself. It is equal and pure, without violent demonstrations: it is seen with white hairs and is always young in the heart.
The more I give to thee, the more I have, for both are infinite.
In real love you want the other person's good. In romantic love you want the other person.
To love is to receive a glimpse of heaven.
Love is but the discovery of ourselves in others, and the delight in the recognition.
For every beauty there is an eye somewhere to see it. For every truth there is an ear somewhere to hear it. For every love there is a heart somewhere to receive it.
The life and love we create is the life and love we live.
From every human being there rises a light that reaches straight to heaven. And when two souls that are destined to be together find each other, their streams of light flow together, and a single brighter light goes forth from their united being.
Harmony is pure love, for love is a concerto.
Paradise is always where love dwells.
Love is the emblem of eternity; it confounds all notion of time; effaces all memory of a beginning, all fear of an end.
Love is something eternal; the aspect may change, but not the essence.
Those who love deeply never grow old; they may die of old age, but they die young.
Neither a lofty degree of intelligence nor imagination nor both together go to the making of genius. Love, love, love, that is the soul of genius.
Love does not begin and end the way we seem to think it does. Love is a battle, love is a war; love is a growing up.
