Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters.
[I was inspired to choose this quote because of Kevin’s QOTD yesterday.
Assuming this is true then it would follow that those who wish to be masters might purposefully set about to encourage corruption and destroy virture.
Although I don’t care to take the time to do this I believe a good case could be made that it has already happened.–Joe]
