Chief Justice John Roberts looks like a cardinal of the church, and might have been in a different time and place. He is a man of great integrity, ambition, and singleness of purpose. I agree passionately with his lifelong opposition to discriminatio ...more

Dinesh D'Souza
“Finally, proportional representation assures an unceasing racialization of American society. By seeking to fight discrimination by practicing it, proportional representation multiplies the wounds inflicted by race-based decisions. Far from compensating old victims, it creates new ones. Proportional representation seeks to institutionalize race and make it a permanent feature of American public life. It has normalized and legitimized a neurotic obsession with race that maims our souls. If Americans acquiesce in this prescription, it will set them on a perpetual treadmill of racial recrimination and conflict. At least the old discrimination existed anomalously with the American creed; the new discrimination, embedded in law and policy, corrupts the nation's institutions and makes them purveyors of injustice.”
Dinesh D'Souza, The End of Racism: Finding Values in an Age of Technoaffluence

Alfred Döblin
“So, go on rising, sun, you don't frighten us. We don't care about your many miles, your diameter, your volume. Warm sun, just rise, bright light, arise. You are not big, you are not small, you are happiness.”
Alfred Döblin, Berlin Alexanderplatz

John Locke
“Hence it is a mistake to think, that the supreme or legislative power of any common-wealth, can do what it will, and dispose of the estates of the subject arbitrarily, or take any part of them at pleasure.”
John Locke, The Two Treatises of Civil Government

Dinesh D'Souza
“Majorities, no less than minorities, need the assurance that they are being treated fairly, otherwise they are sure to mobilize through democratic channels to affirm their interests. By not only tolerating but enshrining it in law, proportional representation is rapidly balkanizing the country along racial lines, destroying the confidence of citizens that the law will treat them equally and provoking a strong and largely justified backlash.”
Dinesh D'Souza, The End of Racism: Finding Values in an Age of Technoaffluence

“The soul began as unquestionably real and the self ended as arguably a fiction.”
Raymond Martin, The Rise and Fall of Soul and Self: An Intellectual History of Personal Identity
