Quote of the Day

“The Constitution, whatever else may be said of it, embraced a tacit agreement to have peaceful coexistence between two social systems based on antagonistic systems of property and attendant moral principles. The Yankee interpretation of the Constitution prevailed not because it was intellectually superior but because the North won a test of physical strength.”
