Chicago politics

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."

I mentioned once I lived in Chicago for a short time. Just before I got there the then Superintendent of Police had been removed from office for corruption. True to the Chicago spirit a crowd had gathered outside his home to cheer for him and show their support.
