"Reason, rising above these mists..."
John Dickinson (as Fabius), writing about our proposed Constitution in 1788:
[I]n forming a political society, each individual contributes some of his rights, in order that he may, from a common stock of rights, derive greater benefits, than he could from merely his own...Humility and benevolence must take place of pride and overweening selfishness.
You know, apropos of nothing.
