  1. Amen to this! And Oh how appropriate to our times! We are in the disaster that we are in precisely because we have a government that pampers its citizens and has forgotten that suffering the consequences of one’s own foolish decisions is a foundation-block to a free society.

  2. As the comment note above says, I’d rather not make this a forum for discussing “thoughts about the quotation itself.”
