    My favorite quote

    I have lots of "favorite" quotes, but I've been fond of this one for awhile, so it get's my "lifetime achievement" award.
    War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.
    - John Stuart Mill

    I have to say my current favorite is one I just heard on Michael Savage who was speaking on social promotion and "self esteem":

    People who are worthless shouldn't have self-esteem!

    "Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to greater danger. It works the same in any country."
    - Hermann Goering (1893 - 1946), 2nd in command of the Third Reich
