Moderation in temper is always a virtue; but moderation in principle is always a vice.
Nobody ever defended anything successfully, there is only attack and attack and attack some more.
Kill. All. These. Zombies.
*This quotation is accepted as “fake but accurate” by “historians.”
Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin to slit throats.

I’ll believe it’s a crisis when the people who tell me it’s a crisis start acting like it’s a crisis.
–Glenn Reynolds of Instapundit regarding global warming.
Meanwhile, the people who keep telling us it’s a crisis are still doing so from their private helicopters.
War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.
–John Stuart Mill
“Rightful liberty is unobstructed action, according to our will, within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others.”
— Thomas Jefferson
