"...doesn't philosophy amount to the sum of all thinkable and unthinkable errors, ceaselessly repeated?"--Jean-Luc Marion

“The opposite of poverty is not wealth; the opposite of poverty is justice."--Bryan Stevenson

Interesting to consider that most of America will have no idea this went on today. And if they did...?

In the words of ST:OS: "Freedom? That is a worship word!" Only now do I realize that means it's a hollow abstraction.

Thanks for the insight.
