Reader comments about this quote:
A noble concept indeed BUT, the real carnal world is something else. Here, the Clinton family dynasty might be used as an example. Neither Slick Willey nor Hitlery's ultimate ambition was a happy home - but rather - criminal exploits, totalitarian debauchery, illicit enterprise and labor for power and gain, prompted by, and complete with a desire to avoid prosecution.

    It's a worthy sentiment, but "all ambition" cannot be contained. The lust for power is the danger. The power-seekers are never satisfied, and their happiness is our servitude.
