Quote of the Day

It has been frequently remarked that it seems to have been reserved to the people of this country, by their conduct and example, to decide the important question, whether societies of men are really capable or not of establishing good government from reflection and choice, or whether they are forever destined to depend for their political constitutions on accident and force.
-Alexander Hamilton, Federalist No. 1

Quote of the Day

Political philosophers have generated the view that equality and freedom are necessarily in tension with each other. … Such a choice is dangerous. If we abandon equality, we lose the single bond that makes us a community, that makes us a people with the capacity to be free collectively and individually in the first place.

-Danielle Allen, Our Declaration
