"The Nazis are well remembered for murdering well over 11 million people in the implementation of their slogan, 'The public good before the private good,' the Chinese Communists for murdering 62 million people in the implementation of theirs, 'Serve the people,' and the Soviet Communists for murdering more than 60 million people in the implementation of Karl Marx's slogan, 'from each according to his ability, to each according to his needs.' Anyone who defends any of these, or any variation of them, on the grounds of their 'good intentions' is an immoral (NOT 'amoral') enabler of the ACTUAL (not just the proverbial) road to hell."

We hold this truth to be self evident - said very well - very accurate.

    One of my favorite cartoons is the Wizard of Id. In one segment the little king encountered the bard sitting on a rock, reading. The king commented that the bard always had his nose in a book and, that by doing so, he would never be a leader of men. After the king departed, the bard commented: Nor a follower. In Exodus, 23, 2; the Hebrew (G)god counseled Moses that His people shall: ... not follow a multitude to do evil; neither shalt thou speak in a cause to decline after many to wrest judgment. (King James version.)
    After all that it is true, and best, to keep your own counsel; but perhaps it is more important to listen and learn to discriminate between wise and deceitful (or foolish) counsel by others. It ain't easy.
