The President’s Fault?

“How small of all that human hearts endure,

That part which laws or kings can cause or cure.”

–Samuel Johnson

  1. We have the system for which we all deserve. It’s no more the President’s fault than our own. The President is but a mere reflection of the whole.

    Thanks for the vine S.D. I appreciated Jacobs take on Wendell Berry discussing marriage even more than his take on Samuel Johnson discussing politics. Marriage “has become a matter of justice rather than of love, an assertion of rights rather than a self-giving.”
