Quote of the day

"Power always sincerely, conscientiously, de très bon foi, believes itself right. Power always thinks it has a great soul and vast views, beyond the comprehension of the weak; and that it is doing God's Service, when it is violating all his Laws." - John Adams, letter to Thomas Jefferson (Feb. 2, 1816)

Hmmm. Now who do we know who thinks that way?

By the way thanks for finding a power quote that isn't the old absolute power one. I'm tired of that one.
