Quote of the day

Henry Adams:
"Politics, as a practice, whatever its professions, had always been the systematic organization of hatreds."
Amen. Politics is simply the means of dividing the spoils of government. The greater the government's power, and the higher the stakes, the more passions are inflamed. Want to improve the tone of the nation's discourse? Desire a more harmonious society? Shrink government.
