"...And these atomic bombs which science burst upon the world that night were strange, even to the men who used them."  H. G. Wells, The World Set Free, 1914

"The one pervading evil of democracy is the tyranny of the majority, or rather of that party, not always the majority, that succeeds, by force or fraud, in carrying elections." -Lord Acton

I didn't know Bacall was still alive.  She was one classy lady, from an era full of some of the classiest.  Katherine Hepburn, Bette Davis, Irene Dunne, Carole Lombard, Ingrid Bergman, Rita Hayworth, Judy Garland.  Very few of today's actresses could hold a candle to them.  Maybe Cate Blanchette and Meryll Streep, but that's about it.

For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev

Agreed. Agreed. Agreed.
