Bulwark of Society

“…the moral test of government is how that government treats those who are in the dawn of life, the children; those who are in the twilight of life, the elderly; those who are in the shadows of life; the sick, the needy and the handicapped.”  ~ Last Speech of Hubert H. Humphrey

“The most certain test by which we judge whether a country is really free is the amount of security enjoyed by minorities.” ~John E. E. Dalberg, Lord Acton, The History of Freedom in Antiquity, [1877].

“The true bulwark of a society is a government strong enough to protect the will of its people; and a people strong enough and well enough informed to maintain sovereign control of its government.”
~Franklin Delano Roosevelt
