"A majority taken collectively is only an individual, whose opinions, and frequently whose interests, are opposed to those of another individual, who is styled a minority. If it be admitted that a man possessing absolute power may misuse that power wronging his adversaries, why should not a majority be liable to the same reproach?" - Tocqueville, Democracy in America

The human spirit
This is the story of the human spirit.
Sad, ugly, vicious and violent. And yet it is so
beautiful and inspiring. Somewhere out there, God must be smiling.
