Those crazy Founding Fathers

The U. S. Constitution went into effect on this day in 1789.

"That all men are equal is a proposition to sane invidual has ever given his assent." -- Aldous Huxley.

“Plato just assumes some people are better than others,” Vic said.

“Yes, he does.”
“And these will be the rulers.”
“Yes. The wisest will rule the rest.”
“But they won’t be tyrants.”
“No, they’ll be philosophers, and they’ll know what’s best for everybody, including themselves.”
“Ha, ha, ha!” Jeffrey barked.   --  Chapter 19, The Misforgotten.
