No other or greater powers appear to me to be delegated to this government than are essential to accomplish the objects for which it was instituted, to wit, the safety and happiness of the governed.

The caliber of the people who have served as chief executive has declined erratically but persistently from the day George Washington left office.

Would you risk death to write poetry?
The women of Kabul’s Ladies’ Literary Society do just that – meeting secretly and often risking their lives to write poems.
Pictured, Lima Niaza, age 15, joined the society two years ago.
She addressed her latest poem to the Taliban:
You won’t allow me to go to school.
I won’t become a doctor.Remember this:One day you will be sick.

What, to the American slave, is your Fourth of July?

I answer: a day that reveals to him, more than all other days in the year, the gross injustice and cruelty to which he is the constant victim. To him, your celebration is a sham; your boasted liberty, an unholy license; your national greatness, swelling vanity; your sounds of rejoicing are empty and heartless; your denunciation of tyrants, brass-fronted impudence; your shouts of liberty and equality, hollow mockery; your prayers and hymns, your sermons and thanksgivings, with all your religious parade and solemnity, are, to Him, mere bombast, fraud, deception, impiety, and hypocrisy—a thin veil to cover up crimes which would disgrace a nation of savages.

There is not a nation of savages. There is not a nation on the earth guilty of practices more shocking and bloody than are the people of the United States at this very hour.

Fredrick Douglass.

Reflections on Slavery:

The unfortunate condition of the persons, whose labour in part I employed, has been the only unavoidable subject of regret.

Daily chart: world peace. This global peace index produced by The Institute for Economics and Peace, a think-tank, is composed of 23 indicators ranging from murder rates to weapons imports to conflicts being fought. It throws up some surprising results, such as that China was more “peaceful” than America in 2007.

“As a very important source of strength and security, cherish public credit. One method of preserving it is to use it as sparingly as possible: avoiding occasions of expence by cultivating peace.” — George Washington
