In dwelling,
live close to the ground.
In thinking,
keep to the simple.
In conflict,
be fair and generous.
In governing,
don't try to control.
In work,
do what you enjoy.
In family life,
be completely present.
~ Lao Tzu

The Latent Spark

Human nature itself is evermore an advocate for liberty. There is also in human nature a resentment of injury, and indignation against wrong. A love of truth and a veneration of virtue. These amiable passions, are the "latent spark"... If the people are capable of understanding, seeing and feeling the differences between true and false, right and wrong, virtue and vice, to what better principle can the friends of mankind apply than to the sense of this difference?

John Adams, 1775

Why is patriotism thought to be blind loyalty to the government and the politicians who run it, rather than loyalty to the principles of liberty and support for the people? Real patriotism is a willingness to challenge the government when it's wrong.

And accordingly

all experience hath shewn
that mankind are more disposed to suffer,
while evils are sufferable
than to right themselves
by abolishing the forms
to which they are accustomed.
