Independence? That’s middle class blasphemy. We are all dependent on one another, every soul of us on earth.
~George Bernard Shaw
I think more Americans need to declare their independence from partisan politics on both sides. The more that Americans declare their independence, the more the parties will have to compete for their votes using reason rather than the hateful appeals.
I know of no country in which there is so little independence of mind and real freedom of discussion as in America.
~Alexis de Tocqueville
Nature has never read the Declaration of Independence. It continues to make us unequal.~Will Durant
