Sanity and Madness


This concise comment serves as a brief overview of a conversation about sanity and madness that will be presented in a discussion to follow:

For the sane person, whether or not hearts are made to be broken, selves are made to be lost, and this simply means noting that what we tend to call ourselves or our characters are both threatened and strengthened by excitement.

President Bush: “Mistatement” of the Union

Sparing the Innocent

“We seek peace. We strive for peace. And sometimes peace must be defended. A future lived at the mercy of terrible threats is no peace at all.

If war is forced upon us, we will fight in a just cause and by just means, sparing in every way we can the innocent.

And if war is forced upon us, we will fight with the full force and might of the United States military and we will prevail. And…we will bring to the Iraqi people food, and medicines, and supplies…and freedom. America is a strong Nation, and honorable in the use of our strength.”

George W. Bush
January 2006
