The Precipice
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

C.S Lewis

the neighborhood bully will eventually tire of beating you up, but the snooty girl next door will always think you are a dumb smelly boy.

Let freedom ring from the snowcapped trails of Aspen!

Let freedom ring from the curvaceous slopes of the shores of the Breakers in Newport!

But not only that; let freedom ring from the lavish palaces of Gross Point, Michigan


Let freedom ring from Lake Forest, Illinois!

Let freedom ring from every hill and molehill of Chestnut Hill. From every beach in the Hamptons, let freedom ring.
