Public Education

We have the greatest opportunity the world has ever seen, as long as we remain honest which will be as long as we can keep the attention of our people alive. If they once become inattentive to public affairs, you and I, and Congress and Assemblies, judges and governors would all become wolves. Thomas Jefferson
Every collectivist revolution rides in on a Trojan horse of "emergency". It was the tactic of Lenin, Hitler, and Mussolini. In the collectivist sweep over a dozen minor countries of Europe, it was the cry of men striving to get on horseback. And "emergency" became the justification of the subsequent steps. This technique of creating emergency is the greatest achievement that demagoguery attains. Herbert Hoover.
Sed quis custodiet ipsos Custodes? (Who is to guard the guardians themselves?) Juvenal, Satires, ~120 CE.

Give me six lines written by the most honourable of men, and I will find an excuse in them to hang him. Cardinal Richelieu (1585-1642)
In the twentieth century being "well-spoken" came to mean speaking in such as way that you can't easily be discredited by being quoted out of context. Jon Roland, 1995

Student Government The principles of constitutional republican government also apply, with some adaptations, to this formative experience of future constitutionalists.

It isn't what we don't know that gives us trouble, it's what we know that ain't so. Will Rogers.


In the beginning of a change, the patriot is a scarce man; brave, hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, however, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot. Samuel Clemens (Mark Twain)


Knowledge will forever govern ignorance: And a people who mean to be their own Governors, must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives.   James Madison, Letter to W.T. Barry, August 4, 1822.

One of the first rules of effective communication is to so compose the message as to anticipate all the ways it could be misinterpreted, and minimize such misinterpretation. This is especially important with laws, which are messages from the past to the future. It is well to keep in mind Murphy's Law of Lawmaking: "If it can be misinterpreted it will be, and it will be misinterpreted in the worst way possible." Jon Roland, 1997

I often wonder whether we do not rest our hopes too much upon constitutions, upon laws and upon courts. These are false hopes, believe me, these are false hopes. Liberty lies in the hearts of men and women; when it dies there, no constitution, no law, no court can save it; no constitution, no law, no court can even do much to help it. While it lies there, it needs no constitution, no law, no court to save it. Judge Learned Hand

Editors to whom letters might be sent

You may think the Constitution is your security -- it is nothing but a piece of paper. You may think that the statutes are your security --they are nothing but words in a book. You may think the elaborate mechanism of government is your security -- it is nothing at all unless you have sound and uncorrupted public opinion to give life to your Constitution, to give vitality to your statutes, to make efficient your machinery. Justice Charles Evans Hughes

I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And what I can do, I will do. D. L. Moody (1837-99), paraphrased. Similar to saying of Edward Everett Hale (1822-1909).
