Miserable Creatures

Here are a couple quotes that everyone should read.  The first sums up how Europe can so easily be overtaken by the surge of islamic immigrants.  By the same token, it sums up how it will be so easy for them to overtake America.  It’s by a Dutch author named Oscar Van Den Boogaard.  (I wonder if he got teased about that as a kid)

“I am not a warrior, but who is?  I have never learned to fight for my freedom.  I was only good at enjoying it.”

The second quote is from John Stuart Mill, who was a British political economist in the 1800s.  This quote sheds light on the standard American liberal, and is as valid today as it was 160 years ago.

“War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things.  The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks nothing is worth war, is worse.  A man who has nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.”
